Balancing Beauty and Health: Dr. Laurie’s Vision for Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Laurie’s philosophy on cosmetic dentistry centers around providing natural-looking results while prioritizing patient comfort, oral health and overall wellbeing. She utilizes biocompatible materials and advanced techniques to enhance smiles. Whether it’s veneers, smile makeovers, crowns, bonding, teeth whitening, or gum contouring, her approach emphasizes preserving natural tooth structure, achieving harmony and balance in the smile. Dr. Laurie’s goal is always to create long-lasting, biocompatible restorations that blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
Dr. Laurie has a fun term that she has coined: “nip and tuck dentistry”. Veneers fall into this category. Veneers provide natural aesthetics, allowing light to pass through the tooth for a lifelike appearance. With veneers, patients can avoid the unsightly black line along the gum line commonly seen with traditional crowns. Dr. Laurie appreciates the conservative nature of veneers, often achieving remarkable results with as little as one veneer. By offering custom shading in her office, she ensures that each veneer blends seamlessly for a fantastic smile transformation.
Crafted to improve the overall appearance of a smile, Smile Design is a customized approach that caters to individual needs. Dr. Laurie places great emphasis on getting familiar with her patients and their needs so that she can tailor treatment and provide a newly transformed smile. Every patient has a unique goal for their smile, and her goal is to help everyone she treats achieve the smile they want. During the evaluation, she analyzes the smile, bone structure, jaw alignment, and mouth shape to determine the proper treatment plan. She also offers patients several treatment options.
A Smile Makeover (sometimes referred to as a full mouth reconstruction) can truly work wonders in rejuvenating appearance, providing a fresh and youthful look. By utilizing a range of advanced techniques and materials, we can rebuild and restore the teeth to create a harmonious and vibrant smile. Our Smile Makeover approach, which may include various dental procedures, helps enhance not only the dental function but also the overall facial aesthetics. The result is a transformed smile that brings out the natural beauty and radiance of each individual.
Dr. Laurie’s philosophy regarding crowns revolves around providing natural-looking results and prioritizing patient comfort. Crowns are restorations that cover and protect damaged teeth, restoring their function and appearance. Unlike traditional crowns, Dr. Laurie’s approach emphasizes using materials that mimic the natural tooth structure, ensuring a seamless blend. Her treatment philosophy focuses on conservative dentistry, preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible. This approach reduces the need for invasive procedures and promotes long-term oral health.
Bonding is a procedure where a tooth-colored resin material is applied to improve the appearance of teeth, correct minor flaws, and enhance their overall aesthetics. Dr. Laurie’s approach emphasizes preserving natural tooth structure and avoiding unnecessary removal. By utilizing bonding techniques, she can achieve remarkable results without the need for more
Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that reshapes and sculpts the gum tissue to improve the appearance of the smile. Dr. Laurie’s philosophy on gum contouring focuses on achieving balanced and aesthetically pleasing gum lines for her patients. Dr. Laurie utilizes advanced techniques and tools to precisely remove excess gum tissue or reshape uneven gum lines, creating symmetry and harmony with the teeth. Her treatment philosophy emphasizes patient comfort, meticulous attention to detail and natural-looking results.
Teeth whitening is a procedure that helps lighten the color of teeth, removing stains and discoloration. Dr. Laurie’s philosophy regarding teeth whitening is to provide safe, effective, and personalized treatments that enhance smiles. Dr. Laurie’s approach involves using professional-grade whitening agents and customized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Her emphasis is on achieving natural-looking results while prioritizing the oral health and sensitivity of her patients.
