Get the smile you’ve always wanted, and restore the healthy vibrancy of your teeth and gums with cosmetic dentistry
Are you embarrassed or unhappy about the appearance of your smile? Perhaps, yellow or stained teeth have caused you to “hide” your smile. Maybe you don’t smile as confidently as you once did due to crooked teeth or a gap-toothed smile. The Bell Dental Group resolves these and other concerns about how your teeth and gums look. In fact, our talented “dental artist” in Alexandria, Virginia, Dr. Alonzo Bell, has developed considerable expertise and a special interest in cosmetic dentistry procedures over his more than 30-year career.
You can trust that the safety, health, and appearance of your smile are in competent hands. Furthermore, you can trust that your renewed smile will look like you – with results that celebrate and complement your unique features. It is your smile and appearance enhanced.
A single treatment may be all it takes to get an “Instagram-worthy” smile. In fact, professional teeth whitening is one of the fastest, easiest, and most affordable ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Bell uses both Colgate® Optic White® in-office and home whitening methods.
Likewise, you may undergo a combination of procedures to achieve your “goal smile.” Other treatments available at our office include:
- Porcelain (indirect) veneers
- Conservative dental bonding (direct veneers)
- Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, an alternative to metal braces
- Tooth-colored composite resin dental fillings
- Porcelain dental crowns
- Tooth-preserving metal-free dental inlays and onlays (partial crowns)
- Tooth replacement with attractive bridges, dentures, and implants
- Gingival procedures: for instance, gum contouring to address imbalances at the gum line
The first two treatments, veneers and bonding, are generally used to resolve cosmetic imperfections only. These imperfections range from small gaps between teeth to minor chips and fractures. They may also strengthen teeth that have sustained some wear and tear and which may be vulnerable to further and more severe damage.
Invisalign® and the dental restorations listed here are both cosmetic and restorative in nature. They can be used for everything from bite correction to treating cavities, deep dental inflammation, and infections. If teeth cannot be preserved with dental restorations such as crowns and with endodontic procedures such as root canal therapy, prosthetic teeth should be placed promptly. Prompt tooth replacement helps our patients to avoid the devastating consequences of progressive bone loss.
Gingival procedures may also be cosmetic and restorative; procedures may remove overgrowth to resolve a “gummy” smile or build-up gums damaged by disease. Receding gums can make your smile look overly “toothy” by exposing more of each tooth. Without treatment, root exposure can lead to the loss of teeth.
