State-of-the-Art Smile Design Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Milwaukie

McLoughlin Dental Care’s comprehensive Smile Design cosmetic dentistry services in Milwaukie craft beautiful smiles that inspire self-confidence.

We believe that an attractive smile is a precious gift all our patients deserve, and we help them achieve this with multiple aesthetic dental procedures to fix a wide range of problems that can spoil your smile.

Smile Design Milwaukie cosmetic dental specialist Dr. Donald Nimz provides patients from throughout the Pacific Northwest with a less costly alternative to plastic surgery like a facelift.

Our aesthetic dental treatments embrace innovative concepts and state-of-the-art practices that enable our patients to get the smile they’ve always longed for – smiles that truly reflect their personality and increase self-esteem by allowing them to feel good about themselves.

Aesthetic Dental Problems We Can Fix

Our cosmetic dental procedures can rectify a wide range of aesthetic issues, including:

  • Stained teeth.
  • Damaged teeth.
  • Missing teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Gapped teeth.
  • Crowded teeth.

Two of our most popular cosmetic dental services are teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Few people are blessed with naturally white teeth. Over time, our teeth are susceptible to staining because of the aging process, the types of foods and drinks we consume, and in some cases poor oral hygiene

Our teeth whitening services in Milwaukie solve the problem of unsightly, discolored teeth, with professional treatments that work faster and much more effectively than DIY over-the-counter whitening products. Teeth whitening is also one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry options.

While whitening toothpastes may be able to remove surface stains, we can lighten discoloration of both tooth enamel and the underlying dentin to produce significant results with teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one hour.

We can achieve this dramatic transformation of your smile because we use materials with more powerful bleaching agents than drugstore teeth whitening merchandise, and your treatment is monitored during each stage of the chairside whitening process to protect your mouth.

A further advantage of our Milwaukie teeth whitening service is that it enables you to get your teeth cleaned thoroughly by one of our dental hygienists ahead of the whitening process. Professional dental cleaning plays a crucial role in preventive dentistry to maintain your oral health and is the only way to get rid of plaque that has calcified into tartar.

Whitening Trays for Use at Home

Besides in-office teeth whitening, we also offer prescription whitening trays with high-concentration bleaching gels for use at home.

We’ll take impressions of your teeth to create customized trays for a precise fit to ensure the whitening agent stays in close contact with your teeth to produce optimum results. You fill the trays with the whitening gel we give you and wear them for short periods over a few days, usually for about an hour at a time.

Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are basically healthy but showing signs of wear and tear, veneers could be the cosmetic dental option to redesign your smile – a fast, highly effective aesthetic treatment if unsightly teeth are spoiling your smile.

Dental veneers – ultra-thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells – are fixed onto the front of teeth to mask chipping or stains. They can also improve the appearance of the shape and size of your teeth to create a more balanced look by fixing the problem of gapped or crowded teeth.

Our veneers are made from dental porcelain, which provides a longer-lasting smile solution than composite materials. Thanks to advances in technology, porcelain veneers are now thinner than ever, which means little or no removal of tooth enamel while still achieving a natural look.

Another advantage of porcelain veneers is that they look like natural teeth because they closely resemble tooth enamel, with translucent properties that react to light in the same way as enamel.

Porcelain veneers are made from medical-grade ceramic that’s less prone to staining and more durable than composite veneers.

Our porcelain veneer treatments can be carried out with little or no anesthesia and can be used for many aesthetic applications, including:

  • Making an irregular gum line look more in balance with your teeth.
  • Correcting teeth crowding or gaps.
  • Reshaping teeth by making them appear squarer or longer.

Your porcelain veneers will also protect tooth surfaces from further damage.
