Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of your teeth, gums and bite. Forest View Dental of Appleton offers a variety of cosmetic dental services from dental implants to teeth whitening, to help you to look and feel your best. These services include:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular and fastest way to improve your smile. People tend to seek out teeth whitening services to update their look and brighten their smile for special events, such as weddings, reunions, job interviews, and holidays. Teeth whitening products are available over-the-counter, but having a trained dentist perform the procedure will ensure it is done correctly. There are many options to help lighten the color of your teeth from having it done at the office sitting in the chair to our popular Whitening For Life Program that allows you to receive free touch up kits for life if you keep your regularly scheduled cleaning and exam visits. Call us today to find out more!

Tooth Colored Fillings

For years dentists used silver and other metals for teeth fillings which are ugly. Today, we use a composite filling that is tooth-colored to restore the decayed tooth. Composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes. These fillings are also more aesthetically pleasing.

Veneers

Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic remedy for a variety of dental conditions that affect the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are thin, semi-translucent porcelain “shells” that are custom-made to fit precisely over existing teeth and alter their color, shape, size, length, and/or alignment. They are permanently held in place by a special resin that bonds the back of the veneer to the front of the tooth. Although they are not suitable for every patient, veneers are very color-stable and can be a great option for restoring the natural beauty of your teeth so that you can smile with confidence.

Bonding

Bonding uses tooth colored filling material to resurface the front teeth with a very strong adhesive. This is a very cost effective way to change the size, shape and color of your teeth. It does not maintain its color forever, so it needs to be replaced periodically depending upon the amount of staining drinks and food that you consume and if you are a smoker.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are often the best option for replacing missing teeth. Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that are placed in the jawbone. Composed of titanium metal that "fuses" with the jawbone through a process called "osseointegration," dental implants will not shift and never decay.

If you are missing teeth and wish to eat your favorite foods, increase your chewing ability and improve your appearance and speech, then you are a candidate for dental implants. A dental implant is a replacement for the root of a tooth that has been lost. We have chosen the Bicon Dental Implant System because of its scientifically proven design. Since 1985, the Bicon System has used a locking taper to secure a prosthetic abutment to the implant instead of a screw, since screws often loosen and break. Join the many patients all over the Valley who have Discovered the Bicon Advantage.

Crowns & Bridges

Crown and bridge treatment will restore lost teeth, support remaining teeth and help you maintain optimum dental health.

If you are faced with tooth loss, crown and bridge treatment may be the right restorative option for you. This long-term solution can help prevent the cycle of problems that can occur when just one tooth is missing, such as shifting of the remaining teeth, decay, periodontal disease and bone loss.

What is a Crown?
A crown (sometimes called a “cap”) is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. Used to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth, a crown is placed on an individual tooth much like a thimble over your finger.


What is a Bridge and Why Are Crowns Involved?
A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with a bridge, the teeth on either side of the missing one(s) must be prepared as crowns to serve as anchors to hold the replacement teeth in place.

Reconstructive Dentistry

Reconstructive dentistry is the process of rebuilding a person’s teeth, gums, or jaw. The need for reconstructive dentistry is often the result of an accident or poor oral hygiene. People will select to have reconstructive dental work done for aesthetic reasons, but it can also be medically necessary if the problem interferes with the normal functions of the mouth. Our reconstructive dentistry services include: correcting your jaw position, using implants and bridges or partial dentures to replace lost or missing teeth, using crowns, veneers and bonding to enhance aesthetics and function, and protecting your investment with protective nighttime appliances.

Full and Partial Dentures

Whether you are missing some or all of your natural teeth, you can derive many benefits from replacing them with full or partial dentures. Replacement teeth help fill out your smile by giving support to the cheeks and lips. Replacement teeth create a more youthful, vibrant appearance by holding up facial muscles and aiding in speaking, chewing, swallowing and smiling.

We fashion custom dentures to complement your facial features and lifestyle.

If you are facing the possibility of replacing your teeth with dentures, you need to understand how they will impact your lifestyle. We’re here to address any concerns you may have about adjusting to your dentures.
