Here at Institute of Dental Implants and Periodontics, we know the importance of a healthy and confident smile. That’s why we offer services in cosmetic dentistry.


What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any procedure that repositions, restores or replaces teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.


What are some branches of dentistry or dental procedures that would improve my smile?

  • Orthodontics: I bet you know at least one person with braces. Maybe you’ve already had them yourself. Braces, headgear, and rubber bands are designed to reposition your teeth and jaw over a period of time. Treatment can take as long as two years. In unusual cases, surgery is needed to reposition the jaw. After the treatment is over, a night time retainer is often fashioned to preserve the position of your teeth and bite.
  • Restoration: Do you feel that your jawbone is too weak and thin? Living bone material can actually be transplanted onto your jawbone to build up your facial contours. Are your teeth discolored, cracked or chipped? Veneers or crowns can cover those imperfections with materials like gold, alloys or porcelain. Are you affected with a “gummy smile” or exposed tooth roots? Drs. Domagala and Shango can reshape your gum tissue for a more pleasing and healthier smile.
  • Tooth Replacement: Have a missing tooth? Talk to Drs. Domalaga and Shango about getting a bridge or dental implant. You can either get a removable bridge, which you can take out at night and clean, or a fixed bridge, which is permanently implanted onto metal post in your mouth.
