You Deserve a Beautiful Smile
cosmetic Dentistry in Wilmington
If you’re uncomfortable with your smile or you find yourself covering your grin when you laugh, cosmetic dentistry options can boost your confidence and improve the appearance of your pearly whites. If imperfections like tooth stains, gaps, misshapen or crooked teeth are holding you back from a proud smile, our team of Wilmington dentists and hygienists can offer life-changing cosmetic treatments.
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive, cost-effective solution to brighten your teeth if your smile is dull and yellow. Our powerful, professional-grade whitening treatment can reverse years of stains and yellowing caused by aging and the consumption of dark foods and beverages. We offer custom take-home kits that allow you to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Friberg will take impressions of your teeth to create your custom-molded whitening trays and send you home with clinical-grade whitening agents. Once your treatment is finished (typically about 2-3 weeks) your smile will be up to 5-10 shades brighter.
Dental bonding is a great way to improve your smile if your teeth are misshapen, slightly crooked, gapped, or have small chips. Comparing dental bonding to sculptor’s clay is a good analogy to help patients understand the procedure. To start the process, Dr. Friberg applies a putty-like dental resin to your tooth, then molds and sculpts it into a more pleasing shape. The resin is hardened using UV light, and it is buffed and polished to give you a perfected, improved tooth. The treatment is non-invasive and fast, making it ideal if you would like to restore your smile without surgery or extended time in the dentist’s chair.
Veneers are made of a durable porcelain ceramic material, and they are sculpted to fit over your existing teeth perfectly. By doing so, veneers can cover up just about any cosmetic imperfection, from severe tooth stains to misshapen, gapped, and slightly crooked teeth. Placing veneers is a minimally-invasive process, and usually takes only two appointments at Thrive Family Dental. This means that with veneers, you can restore your smile quickly and feel great about how you look in no time.
