Have you been wanting to upgrade your look and give yourself the smile of your dreams? Well, then you need to learn about the long list ofsmile aesthetic dental services offered by cosmetic dentist Dr. Curt Posey's Fresno office! Why not give yourself a smile that you love?


The consultation

The best smile makeovers, whether simple or comprehensive, start with a complete oral health evaluation at our Fresno office and a frank discussion of how you want your smile to look. For instance, would you like a brighter, whiter smile? Is a small gap between two teeth constantly annoying you? Are there some wear and tear issues or defects such as cracks or uneven tooth length? Dr. Posey will match your realistic goals with treatments which deliver the best possible results on time and within your personal budget. The consultation really is a dentist-patient collaboration which can produce tremendous results.


Treatments offered at Dr. Posey's practice

There are several, but rest assured that your cosmetic dentist will only recommend what's best for you and your smile:

  • Composite resin bonding: Dr. Posey uses a blend of tooth-colored glass and acrylic to repair defects such as small chips, pits, gaps, and rough surface texture. Hardened and permanent, composite resin is durable and exhibits a realistic sheen.
  • Porcelain veneers: Translucent, thin and resilient, ceramic laminates cover teeth marred by larger defects such as cracks, odd shape, and deep staining. This service requires some enamel resurfacing, making veneers permanent and well-fitting.
  • Professional teeth whitening: Performed at-home or in-office, this aesthetic service is very popular because of its low cost and ease of application. Powerful hydrogen peroxide gel produces a color change of about eight shades, giving you an eye-catching new look!
  • Enamel shaping (contouring): Using specialized hand tools, Dr. Posey blends away minor problems associated with dental shape, size, and configuration. Often, contouring is the final step in a more extensive cosmetic makeover.
  • Porcelain crowns: Also called dental caps, these tooth-shaped restorations fit over the top of teeth damaged by injury, decay or excessive wear. Crowns save teeth from extraction/further damage and they look perfectly natural.

Multi-platinum recording artist Janet Jackson has long been known for her dazzling smile. And yet, Jackson admitted to InStyle Magazine that her trademark smile was once a major source of insecurity. The entertainer said, “To me, I looked like the Joker!” It was only after age 30 that the pop icon came to accept her unique look.

Jackson is not alone. A study commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists found that more than one third of U.S. adults are dissatisfied with their smile. But there’s good news—modern dentistry can correct many flaws that can keep you from loving your smile, whether you’re unhappy with the color, size, or shape of your teeth. Here are some popular treatments:

Professional teeth whitening: Sometimes a professional teeth whitening will give you the boost you need. In-office whitening can dramatically brighten your smile in just one visit.

Tooth-colored fillings: If you have silver-colored fillings on teeth that show when you smile, consider replacing them with unnoticeable tooth-colored fillings.

Dental bonding: If you have chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, cosmetic bonding may be the fix you’re looking for. In this procedure, tooth colored material is applied to the tooth’s surface, sculpted into the desired shape, hardened with a special light, and polished for a smooth finish.

Porcelain veneers: Dental veneers provide a natural-looking, long-lasting solution to many dental problems. These very thin shells fit over your teeth, essentially replacing your tooth enamel to give you the smile you desire.

Replacement teeth: Is a missing tooth affecting your self-confidence? There are several options for replacing missing teeth, from a removable partial denture to a traditional fixed bridge to a state-of-the-art implant-supported replacement tooth. Removable partial dentures are an inexpensive way to replace one or more missing teeth, but they are less stable than non-removable options. Dental bridges, as the name implies, span the gap where a tooth is missing by attaching an artificial tooth to the teeth on either side of the space. In this procedure, the teeth on both sides of the gap must be filed down in order to support the bridgework. Dental implants, considered the gold standard in tooth replacement technology, anchor long-lasting, lifelike replacements that function like natural teeth.

After coming to embrace her smile, Jackson asserted, “Beautiful comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors." If you don’t feel that your smile expresses the beauty you have inside, call our office to schedule a consultation. It’s possible to love your smile. We can help.
