Scottsdale Cosmetic Dentist
Paul Douglas, DDS, is a proud member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry which focuses on procedures that enhance the appearance of the teeth, mouth and gums, although they do not necessarily promote the functionality or overall oral health of the patient. Dr. Douglas is an expert cosmetic dentists, experienced at the application of dental veneers, Invisalign, porcelain crowns and bridges. He is a member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
A common procedure for patients who want a whiter, brighter, more beautiful smile is dental veneers. Veneers are a great option to change the shape, size and color of teeth. Veneers also help replace missing tooth structure. Sometimes, a patient’s enamel is deteriorated because of acid erosion, medications and bite related issues. Because porcelain is the next best thing to enamel, and it reflects light to create a natural appearance, veneers are a great replacement for natural enamel.
Invisalign is a simple procedure with amazing benefits that can correct multiple issues. The application of the clear braces can correct not only orthodontic issues such as crowding and spacing, but also bite issues. In less than one year, patients can enjoy the benefits of beautiful, straight teeth, which include increased confidence and greater ease at properly cleaning the teeth with everyday brushing and flossing.
The first visit consists of taking impressions,photos and x-rays. These will be submitted to the Invisalign lab., along with a prescription from Dr. Douglas on how the movement needs to be completed. The Invisalign lab custom designs the trays, which are changed out every two weeks. Our hygienists have noticed our patients with crowding that choose to experience Invisalign have had pocket reduction leading to a healthier mouth.
Patients with damaged or missing teeth may also opt for porcelain crowns and bridges in order to restore both the function and appearance of their teeth. Crowns and bridges are often the best choice when decay has destroyed most of the natural tooth or after a dental trauma.
