It is human nature to appreciate the beauty of a good looking smile, and thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry a beautiful smile is in reach of most people – despite the toll that lifestyle habits, trauma and disease may have taken on your oral health and appearance.
Not all cosmetic dental treatments are made the same…
Contrary to popular belief, it does matter which cosmetic dentist you select to enhance your smile. With home job teeth whitening horror stories running rife and cheap unnatural looking veneer treatments hitting the market, it is highly important that patients shop around carefully to select the most appropriate cosmetic dentist. With more than 20 years’ experience in the dental profession, Dr. Curtis Couch has established a sterling reputation particularly when it comes to the results achieved by his cosmetic dental treatments.
Using an experienced eye in conjunction with the perfect blend of art and science, Dr. Curtis Couch offers the following cosmetic dental treatments:
• Bonding This procedure can be used to mask the appearance of chipped, cracked, discolored or misaligned teeth, and is an entry level alternative to high end cosmetic dental treatments such as porcelain veneers. The teeth are gently prepared for this procedure by lightly etching the surface of each tooth and applying a bonding liquid. After this stage a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing shape by Dr. Curtis Couch. Once you are both happy with the appearance of your new smile and the resin is set; the bonding is trimmed, smoothed and polished to create a naturally beautiful finish.
The great thing about this treatment is that it can be completed in a single visit to Dr. Curtis Couch’s practice in Thousand Oaks, and can last for three to five years. It is important to note that unlike porcelain veneers or your natural tooth enamel, dental bonding can be more susceptible to staining and chips. • Porcelain Veneers For patients who are seeking an even more beautiful and luxurious cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice. Comprised of thin porcelain shells that are bonded directly to the front surfaces of teeth, this treatment can be used to mask chips, cracks, discolorations and discrepancies within your smile to create a naturally beautiful looking smile.
Porcelain resembles healthy, white tooth enamel, remarkably due to the fact that this material mimics the translucent properties of your natural enamel. This cosmetic treatment is highly resistant to future staining that can be caused by the consumption of coffee, tea and even cigarette stains.
In terms of strength, appearance and longevity porcelain veneers are unmatched when compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, and with good care can last up to a decade. • Teeth Whitening This cosmetic treatment is one of the more simple yet powerful tools to transform the appearance of your smile, and can visibly erase the discolorations caused by staining, aging and other lifestyle choices. Dr. Curtis Couch employs the latest bleaching technology in order to deliver a brilliantly white smile in a safe environment.
