What your dentist in Provo wants you to know

The world of cosmetic dentistry offers you choices custom-made to deliver a beautiful smile. You can renew an aging, yellowing smile, teeth whiteningcorrect unsightly cracks and chips in your teeth or change the color of your teeth. Dr. Gary Wiest at Provo Dental in Provo, UT wants to help you discover the magic of cosmetic dentistry.

If your teeth are stained from drinking coffee, tea or red wine, or you are a smoker, you might choose professional teeth whitening. A professional teeth whitening treatment is the state-of-the-art way to whiten and brighten your smile. A white smile helps you look younger and better, restores your self-confidence and makes you feel good about yourself.

Dr. Wiest offers two whitening treatments which can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter, and the results can last up to 5 years. You can choose from:

  • In-office whitening--which takes about an hour; a great choice for people on-the-go or if you have a special event coming up.
  • At-home whitening--which is a kit containing everything you need to whiten your teeth at home; a great choice if you want the privacy and convenience whitening your smile at home.

If you want a more dramatic change in your smile, you might choose bonding and veneer treatments. Bonding can change the color, shape and appearance of your teeth, giving your smile a more uniform look. Veneers can hide major flaws, chips, cracks or slight tooth alignment problems. Veneers are thin laminates of light-reflecting porcelain which are cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers conserve vital tooth structure while still providing maximum dramatically beautiful results.

If your teeth have been damaged due to decay, you might choose tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns. Dr. Wiest will color-match your fillings perfectly, to give you a uniform, natural-looking smile. Dental crowns can give your teeth armor-like protection from strong biting forces.

For virtually every dental problem, there is a cosmetic dentistry solution. You deserve a smile that is custom-made just for you. Your new smile is just a phone call away! Call Dr. Wiest at Provo Dental in Provo, UT today to learn more about cosmetic dentistry!
