The term “cosmetic dentistry” refers to any dental treatment done specifically for the purpose of improving the appearance of your teeth.  Your smile is one of your most important features.  Every smile is as unique and individual as the person who owns it.  That is normally the first thing a person notices about you.    If you are someone who would like to experience a more youthful radiant smile, eliminate unsightly gaps, discoloration, crowding and rotations, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer you have been searching for.  Your smile influences not only how others perceive you but also how you perceive yourself.  A beautiful smile projects self-confidence, warmth and vitality.  It’s a universal symbol of happiness and a force of nature.  Observe the shift in your energy as you turn that frown upside down.  Remember, a smile is a beautiful thing!  SO SMILE!!

Call us today.  We can give you something to smile about.

All-Porcelain Crowns

All-porcelain crowns are often chosen to repair teeth with extensive decay.  Teeth that have had root canal treatment that require the extra needed structural support and teeth that are broken and or cracked will all benefit from the placement of all-porcelain crowns.  There are some instances where patients simply wish to improve the appearance of their teeth.  All-porcelain crowns do not have or contain any metal.  Have you ever seen someone that has an unsightly dark line around the gum when they smile?  This is normally the result of a porcelain crown fused to metal.   Dr. Colvin does not design this type crown at Nu-Smile Family Dentistry.  She designs the latest cosmetic all-porcelain crowns to prevent this undesirable effect from occurring.  All porcelain crowns are the most popular and desirable crown to resemble your natural teeth.

No-Prep Veneers

Traditional porcelain veneers are both durable and beautiful!  But they require preparation of your own teeth.  If this aspect has prevented you in the past from getting veneers, then you need to call us today to consider getting our amazing “Lumineers”.  They are the world’s most renowned and most recognizable name in no-prep veneers.  Lumineers are so thin that they can be placed and bonded directly to the front of your teeth without altering your teeth at all.  For you, the patient, this means no needles or numbing up and absolutely none of the dreaded drilling.  Lumineers are about the thickness of a contact lense.  Being this thin, they transmit light and translucency   like natural tooth enamel.  If you would like to see if you may be a candidate for this beautiful transformation, call us today for a complimentary cosmetic consultation.

We bring SMILES to life!

CONDITIONS THAT VENEERS CAN CORRECT:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Teeth that have been ground down in the past
  • Stained teeth – discolored – yellow
  • Misshapen  teeth

Tooth-Colored White Fillings

Dr. Colvin uses only materials in her practice that have proven to be compatible with the human body.  Our tooth-colored fillings  are not only beautiful but also durable and safe as well.  Dentistry has progressed to a point where dental professionals are provided with so many choices today that you cannot even tell patients have fillings in the teeth.  There is no reason why anyone should risk their well-being and have those old out dated amalgams/silver/mercury fillings.  You know the ones where someone opens wide and they look like they have black orbs in their teeth.  Not a very pretty sight.  We care about our patients, not only their oral health, but their entire health.  Call us today to set up your appointment.  We can eliminate those old toxic filings and replace with a beautiful restoration that neither you nor anyone else will be able to determine you have a filling.  These beautiful fillings look just like your natural teeth.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Nu-Smile is a preferred Provider of Invisalign

How would you like to straighten your teeth without having to resort to metal wires and metal brackets?  Orthodontic treatment has come a long way in dentistry today.   Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that are removable and discreet.  Thus the idea of “clear braces”.  They offer the same benefits as traditional braces while being virtually invisible.  Invisalign provides many of the same benefits as traditional braces.  Invisalign often takes less time to correct your smile than traditional braces.  Another benefit of Invisalign is that you do not have to constantly come back to the dental office for adjustments to fix broken wires and other common problems patients experience with traditional braces.  Call us today to schedule your appointment to see if you are indeed a candidate for Invisalign.  Go ahead and get started on the smile you have always wanted.

Just to let you know, a little something we do for our patients that go through Invisalign.  At completion, we will bleach out your teeth at no charge.

Why wait?  Call us today to see if you are one of the lucky ones, where Invisalign could change not only your SMILE, but your life.

Some of the reasons a patient would want Invisalign

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned  bite
  • Gaps and/or spaces between teeth
  • Protruding teeth (buck teeth)

Whitening Techniques

No matter how well they are taken care of, teeth will naturally lose their whiteness over the years.  Primarily this is due to age and exposure to substances like wine, tea, coffee and tobacco.  Most people do not realize it, but one of the easiest ways to “freshen up” your face is to whiten your teeth.  Teeth whitening is, by far, the most popular cosmetic dental procedure to date.  Professional whitening techniques can fit almost any budget.  Our dental whitening procedures are really quite simple and convenient for our patients.   Dr. Colvin will do a consultation and determine which procedure she thinks would work best for you to help you achieve the best results.  Here at Nu-Smile, we offer several different options and almost everyone is a candidate.  However, there are some teeth that are more resistant to whitening procedures.  Some patients that experience the tetracycline effect (usually caused by medications) and some patients that have existing dental restorations that will not change color with whitening.  Depending on the results you desire, whitening may or may not be an option for you.  Don’t worry, we can develop a plan to get you the smile that will “light” up your world.  There are always other options such as veneers, where you can actually choose your own shade and determine how “white” you want to go!

Cosmetic Laser Re-Contouring and Re-Shaping for Gummy Smiles

A number of things make up an attractive smile. One often overlooked, but none the less important, is a person’s gum-to-tooth ratio. The term “gummy smile” is often characterized by a large amount of gum tissue that is visible when you smile. Patients that experience this, most often experience some degree of self-consciousness when smiling. At Nu-Smile Family Dentistry we utilize laser dentistry to reshape those gums with terrific results. Often times, this can be accomplished in just one visit. Laser gum lift is known for its precision and accuracy, not to mention the fact that it is virtually painless. The procedure produces minimal to no bleeding and the healing time is determined on the individual patient. To eliminate that “gummy smile” and experience a gorgeous smile, call us today.

Bridges

Everyone loves a great smile.  But sometimes smiles need a little help.  If you experience areas where there may be a missing tooth, we can help offer you solutions.  If you would like a beautiful smile with no spaces or gaps, call Dr. Sherry Colvin.   Dr. Colvin will bring you in for an examination and consultation to determine if you are a candidate for a porcelain bridge.  A porcelain bridge looks just like your natural teeth and when bonded in place, no one can see that you may be missing a tooth.  Porcelain bridges are not something that are removable.  They are bonded into place and with routine scheduled maintenance can last a long time.  Bridges are not the only way in which to replace missing teeth.   There are others ways that may include implant surgery and removable partial dentures.  If you are considering a porcelain bridge, please give Dr. Colvin a call today.  She will perform an oral evaluation and design a treatment plan that would work best for you.  Let us help give you back the full function of your bite and also Smile complete with no unsightly gaps or spaces.

Cosmetic Dentures

There are literally millions of people here in the United States that are edentulous (no teeth).  These factors could be a result from periodontal disease, extensive decay or a traumatic illness where medications were a contributor.  Regardless of the reason, Dr. Colvin is committed to creating for her patients, dentures that are indistinguishable from natural teeth.  Here at Nu-Smile, we do not create the “economy denture”.  Dr. Colvin feels that she would not be doing her patients justice by fabricating these.  Economy or “inexpensive” indicates cheap.  And as we all know, cheaper is not always better.  When you are replacing a part of your body, that you are going to be using  approximately 15-18 hours each day, it is better to look for the absolute best product available.  This way you can be happy with the final results.  Call our office today so that we can help you get and receive the smile you deserve.
