Cosmetic Dentistry


Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with improving the aesthetics of your teeth and smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can improve the shape, size, color, and overall appearance and alignment of your teeth to give you a perfect smile. While the focus of cosmetic dentistry is the aesthetics of your teeth, its procedures can also improve their function.

At Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox’s dental office in Swedesboro, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including the following.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening helps you whiten your teeth. It makes you look beautiful and improves your self-confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Fox will either perform an in-office teeth whitening procedure or provide you with customized kits for you to carry out at-home whitening. Though we prefer the former, the latter can be more convenient if you do not have the time to visit our office. Read more here.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to your tooth to make it look more beautiful. Porcelain veneers are natural-looking and designed to give you a new smile. They often require the removal of the tooth’s enamel layer to properly bond with the tooth, but that will not affect the tooth’s functionality. Read more here.

Lumineers

Lumineers are a special type of dental veneers that are thinner, lighter and do not require molding and reshaping the tooth enamel to properly fit and bond. They are, therefore, more suitable for people who may want to reverse the process if they do not like the results they get. Read more here.

Zoom! Whitening

As one of the most popular whitening procedures around, a lot of dentists are now using Zoom! Whitening gel. This process can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades. However, it is not suitable for children. Read more here.

Cosmetic Gum Lifts

If your smile is dominated by your gums, causing you to hide it behind closed lips, visit our dental office and ask Dr. Fox about cosmetic gum lifting. Excessive gum tissues are removed during this procedure so you can get a wonderfully balanced and beautiful smile. Read more here.

Chao Pinhole Gum Surgery

Pinhole gum surgery is a revolutionary technique used to fix shrunken and receded gum tissue. It was developed by Dr. John Chao and is called Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. Instead of cutting, grafting and suturing in the mouth, it only requires a small hole in the gum area which is then used to move the tissue around and resolve gum recession. Read more here.

Six Month Smiles®

Six Months Smiles® are transparent and invisible braces that are only worn on the teeth that show when you smile, therefore improving their appearance and function. They are more comfortable than Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments because the rest of your mouth is free of bands. You only have to wear these for six months to get the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Read more here.

Bonding and Contouring

For people who only need minor modifications, bonding and contouring are a perfect option. Bonding involves the application of resin to a chipped or cracked tooth to make it look smoother. Contouring, on the other hand, requires reshaping or molding a tooth to make it match the rest of the teeth. Read more here.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is a comprehensive process used to transform the appearance of your front teeth and overall smile. Depending on the patient, it may involve procedures like whitening, contouring, gum lifting, applying veneers, and crowns. Read more here.
