Our goal at Radiant Smiles Family Dental is to make sure our patients’ mouths are healthy, but we also realize that a beautiful smile is important. When you don’t like your smile because of cosmetic issues, you might try to hide it—or avoid showing it altogether.
If you are not happy with your smile, we can talk to you about crowns and bridges, tooth-colored fillings, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers. Dr. Yuchen Sheng is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and stays up to date with the latest techniques. She only works with top-quality dental materials and expert dental technicians, and all of our dental restorations are made in the United States.
If you find yourself avoiding social situations because you don’t want to eat, talk, or laugh around others, talk to Dr. Sheng. She can recommend cosmetic dentistry treatments that will make your smile just as beautiful as it is healthy.
In the past, gray-colored metal amalgam fillings were the most common way to prevent the spread of tooth decay. Now, however, we use tooth-colored material to restore teeth. The composite material used for tooth-colored fillings can be made to blend in perfectly with your tooth, so it is virtually undetectable.
We also use tooth-colored fillings to repair chips and gaps between the teeth.
Genetics, lifestyle choices, and the aging process all contribute to teeth that are not as white and bright as you might like. Professional tooth whitening offers patients dramatic, consistent results in a short amount of time.
We provide in-office Zoom teeth whitening for those who would like to come in over their lunch hour and leave with teeth that are several shades whiter. For those who would prefer teeth whitening on their own time, we can create custom trays and send you home with whitening gel for equally dramatic results.
If you are in a hurry or you are a tourist in the South Beach area, we also have prefilled bleaching trays you can pick up at any time.
Porcelain veneers mean that anyone can have a red carpet–worthy smile in just a few trips to the dentist. Veneers are translucent covers that fit over the teeth, camouflaging dental imperfections such as crooked, gapped, stained, or short teeth.
Because there is some preparation that needs to be done to the teeth beforehand, veneers are a permanent cosmetic solution.
If you are interested in a more youthful appearance, Dr. Sheng can provide Botox injections. Botox has grown in popularity in recent years as a way to eliminate creases, wrinkles, and frown lines. The injections work by smoothing out the skin that has become marred as a result of muscle contractions that have been repeated over the years. It is a great way to get smoother-looking skin without cosmetic surgery.
Botox is also used to provide jaw pain relief for some patients who suffer from TMJ or TMD disorders, or who have other types of jaw and neck muscle pain. The injections can relieve pain by stopping the muscles in the area from contracting.
