Elk Grove Cosmetic Dentistry
Your teeth are more than a means to bite and chew your food. They create your smile, a source of confidence and a major part of what you present to the world. If your smile does not reveal what you want it to, cosmetic dentistry services by Dr. Thomas Tinney and his team can help.
Our cosmetic dentistry services range from one-day treatments to smile makeovers that can completely change your smile's appearance. Our goal for cosmetic treatment is to ensure that you have a healthy smile, both inside and out.
Experienced and Professional Cosmetic Dentistry
The road to cosmetic changes starts with a consultation, where you can discuss your concerns and goals for treatment with Dr. Tinney. You may already know what you would like improved, but are uncertain of the best dental interventions needed to get there. Our team can guide you and provide educational videos and patient materials that allow you to learn more about our available procedures, which include:
Teeth Whitening – We highly recommend Opalescence for brightening your smile. It is a bleach only product, requires no light activation, and produces less hypersensitivity than any other system we have tried. We apply the product in our office, and the results are immediate. Additional whitening continues for 24 hours, and many patients follow up with at home bleaching. You can also achieve your whitening goals over a period of 10 – 14 days with a cost-effective take-home kit that includes customized trays and all the necessary instructions.
Dental Implants – Now considered to be the standard of care for replacing missing teeth, implants provide superior function, durability, and beauty. A titanium post is placed into the jaw and acts like a natural tooth root, preserving and restoring the bone structure that can be lost after a tooth is removed. A crown is placed on top of the implant and customized to look natural and feel comfortable.Air Abrasion Fillings – We use this technique to remove decay from a tooth without using a dental drill. A powerful stream of air blows out tiny aluminum oxide particles that bounce off the tooth and blast the decay away. It can also be used to repair cracks and discolored teeth, or prepare for bonding procedures that can drastically improve the look of your smile.
Crowns & Bridges - A bridge consists of a replacement tooth that is anchored on either side by custom porcelain crowns. Porcelain is a high-quality material that Dr. Tinney uses to replace a lost or missing tooth. Porcelain crowns can repair and protect a highly-damaged tooth, such as one that required a root canal.
