General dentistry refers to the dental care that keeps your smile healthy, strong, and clean. Cosmetic dentistry involves customizing your teeth and gums with unique procedures that improve their appearance. At Pioneer Hills Dental, our cosmetic treatments not only brighten and restore the aesthetics of your smile, but they’ll keep your smile healthy as well.
Dr. Terrance Wolbaum has been improving his patients’ beautiful smiles for years, and this foundation of experience allows him to create customized treatment plans that uniquely fit their needs. The team at Pioneer Hills Dental can use a combination of treatments to provide you with a sparkling smile while remaining cost-effective.
If you’re not confident or happy with the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution because they can change the shape, size, length, color, and strength of your teeth. A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that’s secured to the front surface of a damaged or discolored tooth. In two visits, we can revitalize your beautiful smile using veneers.
If you’re interested in whitening your smile, consult Dr. Wolbaum so you can determine if your gums and supporting bone structure are healthy enough for teeth whitening. Dentist-supervised treatments provide superior tooth whitening results that store bought kits — and there’s no mess. At Pioneer Hills Dental, two types of treatment are available: in-office and at-home.
Do you suffer from malocclusion (misaligned teeth)? At Pioneer Hills Dental, Dr. Wolbaum has a solution that works twice as fast as traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a system that custom-fits clear aligners to your smile, gradually shifting your teeth into the proper position. Invisalign is nearly invisible, and you don’t have to worry about cuts or scrapes from metal brackets or wires.
Cavities are one of the most common dental issues, however, they can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Luckily, Dr. Wolbaum features dental fillings — a quick, painless, cost-effective way to eliminate dental issues and protect your teeth from further damage. At Pioneer Hills Dental, we use a tooth-colored composite resin so the treatment will blend with the rest of your smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will it be expensive to improve my smile?
A: We offer many affordable options to help you find a solution that fits your budget. If you are getting veneers or bonding to repair a damaged tooth, your insurance may cover the costs.
Q: Isn’t cosmetic dentistry just for movie stars?
A: Everyone can benefit from the self-esteem boost that comes with a more attractive smile. If you are not comfortable revealing your pearly whites for photos, you may find a new sense of confidence after teeth whitening or straightening.
Q: Are these procedures painful?
A: Veneers and bonding do not cause any pain because they are simply cemented to the exterior of the tooth. We perform more extensive procedures, like the installation of dental implants, with plenty of local anesthesia.
Q: Will the results last?
A: With proper care, your cosmetic results will last for decades with only minor maintenance work from our team.
Q: Can children use Invisalign instead of braces?
A: Teens above the age of 14 and adults can use Invisalign, but the company does not recommend it for children because their teeth are still developing and settling into their final positions.
