Cosmetic dentistry can improve the overall aesthetics of your teeth while helping you regain confidence in your smile. At Innovative Dental, our highly-skilled cosmetic dentists, Dr. Grant Olson and Dr. Megan, utilize the most advanced treatments and techniques available to improve the appearance of common dental imperfections and restore both form and function to your teeth. As a Patterson Dental CEREC® trainer for Southwest Missouri and one of only 300 CEREC® Doctors Mentors worldwide qualified to train others on the technology, Dr. Olson uses the CEREC® system for a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments to provide the most efficient and effective results possible – often in a single visit.
Below is a list of our comprehensive cosmetic dentistry offerings that can help you transform your smile with beautiful, natural-looking results. Please feel free to follow the links for a more detailed description of a specific procedure, or contact us today to schedule an appointment with our doctors.
Porcelain dental veneers can be used to improve the appearance of chips, gaps, stains, and a variety of other tooth imperfections. Utilizing our advanced CEREC® technology, veneers can often be custom-made in a single office visit to match the look and feel of your natural teeth while providing durable, long-lasting results.
Teeth whitening options available at Innovative Dental can lighten the color of your teeth and enhance the overall appearance of your smile. Our at-home Zoom!® teeth whitening kits can help you brighten your smile at your own convenience.
Invisalign® clear braces can be an effective alternative to traditional metal braces. As the number one Invisalign® provider in Springfield, Dr. Olson can help you discretely straighten your smile through a series of customized, removable aligners designed to gradually shift your teeth until you achieve the beautiful results you desire.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain dental crowns can be an effective solution for restoring form and function to damaged teeth while also improving their appearance. Utilizing our CEREC® technology, we can often provide custom-made dental crowns right here in our office in just one visit. During the procedure, CEREC®’s 3D imaging software enables us to take a digital impression of your teeth and design your crown with the utmost precision. Once the design has been completed, your crown will be fabricated out of durable porcelain material using CEREC® milling technology and then secured to your tooth with strong oral cement. Through proper care and maintenance, your porcelain dental crowns can last for decades.
Dental bridges can be an excellent option if you are missing one or more consecutive teeth along your gumline. At Innovative Dental, our doctors use zirconia – a durable, non-metallic material that more closely resembles the natural color of teeth – to construct dental bridges right here in our office, making us one of the only practices in the area to offer this convenience. Dental bridges are often supported on either side by other restorations such as dental crowns or dental implants, depending on your specific needs. Ultimately, this effective cosmetic treatment can provide beautiful results while helping to improve speaking, chewing, and a variety of other problems associated with missing teeth.
Cosmetic dental bonding can help you improve the appearance and function of teeth that are affected by minor imperfections such as gaps, chips, discolorations, and even misalignments. During this popular treatment, a durable oral resin is applied to each affected tooth and then exposed to a high-intensity light that causes the resin to harden. Once the resin material has hardened, it is then shaped and polished to match your surrounding teeth for the most natural-looking effect. This reliable treatment can provide excellent, long-lasting results that can typically be attained in a single office visit.
Tooth-colored fillings can offer a durable, aesthetically-pleasing solution to cavities and tooth decay. Also called white fillings or composite fillings, this common dental treatment involves the use of tooth-colored resin material to fill cavities and crevices in order to provide strength, stability, and natural-looking results. Tooth-colored fillings have come a long way since traditional, mercury-based fillings used in dentistry years ago, and they can provide an effective solution for patients of any age.
