What cosmetic dental services do you offer?

Woman | Jonesboro DentistOur team is committed to helping you love your smile, so we offer numerous ways for you to achieve a transformation that boosts your confidence every time you look in the mirror. Every patient who wants to improve their smile comes to us with different oral health and aesthetic concerns. When you’re ready to make a change, Dr. Bartels partners with you to determine which treatments best fit your timeline, lifestyle, and budget.

Here’s a list of all the services we offer that can be used alone or in combination to customize your dream smile:

Do you offer smile makeovers?

We believe that everyone deserves the feeling of confidence that comes with knowing your smile looks its best. While there are many reasons why you may be unhappy with the look of your smile, there are just as many aesthetic treatment options to get your smile where you want it to be.

A smile makeover at our Jonesboro, AR dental office considers several things. We look at your facial appearance including the length, color, shape, and health of your teeth and gums. For severely misshapen and discolored teeth, we might recommend porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are used very effectively with little or no discomfort to the patient. However, your issue may be very minor, in which case a simple tooth-colored filling or bleaching will do the trick! There are many options, and Dr. Bartels will be happy to help you get the results you need for a beautiful smile.

What are some inexpensive ways to improve my smile?

Professional teeth whitening at our Jonesboro, AR dental office is the fastest and most affordable way to improve your smile dramatically without invasive treatment. You might be surprised to see how this simple procedure can take years off your appearance and make you want to smile with confidence again.

Another option you may find surprising is tooth-colored restorations to help keep your smile looking great. If you have a cavity and need a filling, tooth-colored restorations restore the health and integrity of your teeth without changing the appearance of your smile.

We can match the shade of your tooth so closely that no one will ever notice you have had dental work. We can also use composite material to make minor cosmetic improvements to your smile with cosmetic dental bonding. Whether you have chips, gaps, or misshapen teeth, cosmetic dental bonding is a simple and affordable way to improve your smile.

I’m tired of dull, stained teeth. How can you help me?

Losing the bright, youthful luster of your smile is a natural part of the aging process. As your teeth are exposed to daily wear and tear, staining foods and beverages, and tobacco products, your teeth start to take on a dull, stained, or even yellow appearance.

At Anthony Bartels Family Dentistry we can turn back the clock on a lackluster smile and restore it to its youthful vibrancy with professional take-home teeth whitening. We provide prescription-strength gel and customized whitening trays made using impressions of your teeth. Not only do your customized trays provide uniform coverage of all tooth services, but their snug fit also prevents the gel from leaking onto your gums and causing sensitivity.

Fill the trays with whitening gel as directed, and wear them every day for about 20 to 30 minutes. After two weeks of daily use, you will see significantly brighter teeth and a fresh, renewed appearance. Keep your trays and leftover gel for monthly touchups at home to maintain the results.

What’s the difference between professional and over-the-counter whiteners?

If you have tried over-the-counter teeth whitening in Jonesboro, AR, you know that you might not always get the results you were hoping to achieve. When you whiten your teeth professionally, under the supervision of a dentist, you will achieve the best outcome possible.

Your safety and comfort are essential, but with over-the-counter teeth whitening, you may experience irritation and gum sensitivity. When you choose one of our professional options, you will achieve a better outcome, and we can address problems like sensitivity before we start so that you do not have to experience pain.

With professional teeth whitening, you can expect a significantly brighter smile in a relatively short amount of time. After a consultation, we will recommend a system that will provide you with outstanding results.

If you want to make a change and have a brighter smile, call our Jonesboro dental office today to schedule a whitening consultation

What is Lifetime Whitening?

Teeth Whitening | Dentist JonesboroWe emphasize the importance of preventive treatments like exams and dental cleanings because we believe they are the foundation for every healthy smile. For this reason, we are pleased to offer our patients a program called Lifetime Whitening.

If you maintain your regular hygiene appointments, we will recognize your accomplishment by giving you a tube of whitening gel to use at home and keep your smile looking as dazzling as it is healthy! It is our way of rewarding your commitment to your oral health.

How can porcelain veneers improve my smile?

If you are looking to make dramatic improvements to your smile, we can use porcelain veneers or crowns to create the smile you have always wanted. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the surface of your teeth and cover any existing flaws. They can help us to address such concerns as deep resistant staining, crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, and oddly shaped teeth.

Whether you want to change your smile completely or you simply have a few problem teeth, veneers can give you a smile you have always wanted in just a few appointments.

What problems do porcelain veneers fix?

Porcelain crowns are one of the most common dental restorations we create at our Jonesboro dental office. Also known as caps, crowns restore the stability and function of a damaged tooth.

But natural-looking porcelain also makes crowns an excellent option for restoring balance to your smile by providing a new covering and concealing:

  • Large, dark silver fillings
  • Teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Size discrepancies
  • Large or uneven gaps and spacing
  • Deeply stained teeth that can’t be whitened

Porcelain crowns are an excellent option for addressing these problems; however, since they involve alteration of healthy tooth structure, there may be other, less invasive approaches that will help you achieve the results you desire. For this reason, we recommend crowns only on a case by case basis for purely aesthetic purposes. 

What is Invisalign and how can it help improve my smile?

Invisalign | Jonesboro DentistInstead of bulky metal braces, Invisalign is a short-term adult orthodontic treatment that uses custom-designed clear plastic trays to move your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing arrangement gradually. If you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, Invisalign can straighten out your smile without announcing to the world that you’re having treatment. 

How is Invisalign different from traditional braces?

The movement of your teeth during Invisalign treatment is small compared to the tightening that accompanies traditional braces. That means you will experience more comfortable treatment and be able to avoid the soreness associated with braces.

Choosing Invisalign in Jonesboro, AR has several benefits:

  • No brackets and wires to clean around allows you to get the most from your oral hygiene routine
  • Smooth, comfortable plastic aligners won’t irritate tender tissue in your mouth
  • Crystal-clear aligners are discreet, and most people won’t know you’re wearing them
  • Since you remove the aligner trays for meals, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods
  • Treatment times are often shorter than with traditional braces, and in some cases, we can complete the process in as little as a year
