What is artistic dentistry?
If only there was a real fountain of youth. A place you could go to drink or bathe in magical waters that would help you live a longer life and maintain your youthfulness and beauty forever. The idea of such a place is one that many have dreamed of.
After all, who doesn’t want to look and feel younger? Yet though there may be no magical spring out there where you can magically look and feel younger, there are realistic solutions available that can remove years from your appearance, boosting your self-esteem and outlook on life. And artistic dentistry is just one of those solutions.
Many people have heard of cosmetic dentistry, but not everyone has heard of artistic dentistry. The truth is that both types of dentistry are similar. Artistic dentistry, in particular, is when your dentist partners with you to create a dental plan that will cosmetically improve your smile without changing too much of your facial structure.
Few patients want to look completely different. So, artistic dentists work hard to preserve your natural look, while simply enhancing it to bring more youth to your appearance. Artistic dentistry makes use of a variety of mediums to create the smile you are dreaming of.
Valley Dental Clinic offers a variety of life-changing artistic dentistry solutions.
When shopping for a new dentist, it is essential to know that not all dentists are the same. And suppose you are looking to obtain a more youthful appearance while maintaining your oral health through dental examinations and oral cleanings. In that case, your best bet is to look for a dentist that offers general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Specifically, look for a dentist that provides cosmetic dental care inclusive of artistic dentistry, as they will be able to give you the best possible smile makeover.
Let’s dive into some of Dr. Robinson’s solutions that Valley Dental Clinic offers. It’s rare to identify a dentist who can provide all of these solutions in one location. We’re very fortunate to provide this to patients in or near Wasilla or Anchorage, Alaska.
You may be surprised to find out that you can get Botox services at your dentist’s office. But this has become an increasingly popular service for dentists to offer all over the United States. In particular, Dr. Robinson and Dr. Lyerly are both trained extensively in craniofacial anatomy. They can safely administer Botox treatments to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uplift your eyes, and even alleviate the symptoms of migraines, bruxism, and TMD (temporomandibular disorder).
You’ve probably heard of dental veneers, but you may not have heard of Bioclear or Bioclear veneers. Bioclear has become a wonderful option for patients trying to rediscover their youthful look, as it is a non-invasive treatment designed to correct chips, breaks, “black triangles” at the gumline, and gaps between the front teeth.
Like cosmetic dental bonding, Bioclear also provides the aesthetic results of porcelain veneers. This means that Bioclear will enhance your smile’s appearance or repair tooth damage in only one visit, making it an excellent smile makeover option. And we’re quite proud to say that Dr. Robinson is the only dentist in all of Alaska who is certified to use the Bioclear matrix.
If you have suffered from a gummy smile, then gum contouring is the solution to help you improve your smile. Gum contouring essentially reshapes the tissues that surround your teeth that may be causing an uneven or “gummy” smile.
Patients can get a gummy smile as a side effect of certain prescription drugs or inflamed gum tissue, but thankfully, it is a condition that is easily treated. Not only that, but this excess gum tissue is more susceptible to infection, which could lead to gingivitis or tooth loss. Thus, gum contouring can be extremely beneficial to your oral health, far beyond the cosmetic factors.
Most people are familiar with the teeth whitening kits that can be purchased at their local convenience or grocery store. Unfortunately, while these teeth whitening kits can produce results, oftentimes the results aren’t significant or enough to truly change the appearance of a patient’s smile.
Professional teeth whitening, on the other hand, can be a game-changer. And, in-office or at-home professionally-prescribed teeth whitening is a safe, simple, and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment that can brighten your smile through whiter teeth. In-office whitening treatments at Valley Dental Clinic utilize whitening gel that is prescription strength.
At-home professional whitening treatments, on the other hand, use custom-made trays to apply a prescription-strength whitening gel evenly to your teeth, intended to break down surface stains and lighten the shade of your natural teeth. With an at-home professional treatment, you can anticipate results within two weeks.
