Having an attractive smile is important not only to your self-confidence, but how others perceive you. Dr. Selena Marchan, your cosmetic dentistryJacksonville dentist, understands her patient's needs and wants for a beautiful smile, which is why she's proud to offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, each aimed at helping you feel comfortable and confident about the way your teeth look. She's explained three of our popular procedures here.

Whitening

Imagine a dazzling, bright smile shining back at you when you look in the mirror. With a teeth whitening treatment from your Jacksonville cosmetic dentist, you can actually have it! Choosing to whiten your teeth in a dental office setting instead of at home means better, longer-lasting results and a safe, error-free experience. We use the highest quality whitening products available to professionals, and our staff is trained to make sure the whitening gel is evenly applied and your sensitive gum tissue is protected. If you'd like to experience what it's like to have a smile that's up to eight shades brighter, whitening is for you!

Bonding

For gaps, cracks, and other problems with the shape or alignment of your teeth, Dr. Marchan offers cosmetic bonding. This non-invasive, low-cost procedure uses a tooth-colored putty that your Jacksonville dentist will artfully shape into the area of concern. The putty then hardens into place. Bonding fills in cosmetic issues seamlessly and comfortably, giving you the confidence to smile and talk without worrying about the way your teeth look. The same material is widely used to fill cavities now, replacing the dark and distracting metal fillings you might remember. On average, well-cared-for bonding lasts ten years or more.

Tooth reshaping

This procedure can be thought of as the opposite of bonding; it exists to sculpt teeth that are mismatched from your others by being chipped or too long or large. The excess enamel of the targeted tooth is filed down and smoothed out by your Jacksonville dentist. Unlike whitening and bonding, tooth reshaping is permanent, so it's important to discuss all your cosmetic dentistry options with Dr. Marchan first.
