You don't have to choose between a smile that is beautiful and one that is healthy. A cosmetic dentist bridges the gap between preventive care and a smile you're proud to show off. To find out how it can help your specific case contact Dr. Robert Hoffmaster of Hoffmaster Dental in York, PA.

Whitening

Perhaps what's most commonly associated with cosmetic dentistry is professional tooth whitening. Your dentist will achieve better faster results in an office visit than you can with over the counter products.

Chips, Cracks, and Cavities

Your cosmetic dentist may employ a composite resin bonding to sculpt your teeth back to their natural look. This is also useful in fillings for the same reason, avoiding that traditional silver appearance.

Deeper cavities can also be repaired through the use of inlays and onlays, a treatment for restoring the tooth with lab-made materials. They fill in the gap between regular fillings and complete crowns.

Full Smile Makeovers

Full smile makeovers can be achieved with cosmetic dentistry through the use of veneers. These bonded onto your teeth in a similar way to crowns, but these are thinner caps that don't require as much of your tooth to be reshaped.

But the result is a complete smile makeover. Perfect if you have a smile with a few imperfections.

Tooth Replacement

Dental implants can replace an entire tooth, or a full denture, in a very permanent way. By fusing titanium posts onto the bone of your jaw, your dentist can attach a crown that will act and look, and feel, just like your natural teeth.

Your cosmetic dentist can help you with all those smile imperfections through a variety of treatments. Call today to find out which is best for you. Contact Dr. Hoffmaster of Hoffmaster Dental in York, PA, by dialing (717) 846-9428.
