Cosmetic Dentistry in Coeur d'Alene
On an average day, US adults smile between 30 and 50 times, releasing powerful mood-lifting endorphins. In most cases, people are smiling at someone, but if patients are worried about how their smiles are perceived by others, they may be missing out on the full mood-elevating effect of smiling. For patients in Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls, and nearby cities, Dr. Filip Orban has the solution – cosmetic dentistry. Orban Family Dental offers a variety of treatment options to transform, enhance, or brighten smiles sometimes in just one visit.
Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services available. Next time you visit your local pharmacy, take a trip down the oral health care aisle if you’d like proof. You’ll find countless whitening toothpastes, mouth rinses, strips, and gels, all promising dramatic smile transformations. Unfortunately, these products do not deliver the brighter smiles they promise. Rather than waste time and money on over the counter whiteners, contact our team to schedule a professional teeth whitening consultation.
Porcelain veneers make it possible for patients to conceal any number of chips, cracks, stains, and other smile flaws in just a few short, painless visits. A veneer is a thin sheath of dental-grade porcelain affixed to the front facing surfaces of teeth, covering even extensive damage, decay, or smile irregularities. A minimal amount of surface enamel is removed in order to allow the veneer to fit within the natural smile line. A set of impressions is taken once teeth are prepared and sent to our dental lab to craft the custom veneers. In the meantime, patients wear a temporary veneer crafted in our office. Once the custom porcelain veneer is completed, patients return to our office to exchange the temporary for a permanent veneer.
Soft Tissue Laser Therapy – Electrosurgery
Using laser technology with high-frequency electronic current, dental practitioners are able to offer patients advanced soft tissue surgery with minimal recovery time and little to no discomfort. The electronic current applied to biological tissue makes it possible for dentists to remove damaged or decayed tissue, coagulate tissue during treatment to reduce healing time, and reshape gum tissue in order to restore oral health following gum disease, oral cancer, and other health issues. Soft tissue lasers can also be used to recontour the gum line for purely cosmetic enhancement.
