Cosmetic Dentistry

Southwest Family Dentistry is proud to offer our patients cosmetic dentistry in Lake City, FL to enhance your appearance and help you make the best first impression possible. We offer the traditional custom-made, tray-type whitening process to whiten teeth that are stained. Custom veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that might be misshapen, uneven, or stained in such a way that teeth whitening is ineffective.

If Dr. Batlle determines that you are a good candidate for teeth whitening with the tray system, you will first have a molded impression made of your teeth, which will be used to make reusable custom trays for you to use. The process is a simple matter of filling the trays with a special whitening gel before putting the trays into the mouth for the prescribed amount of time over a period of several days.

Southwest Family Dentistry also offers veneers to the patients for whom tray whitening is not likely to be effective. Veneers consist of a very thin layer of tooth colored ceramic that covers your existing tooth structure to improve the color, and in some instances, the look of such problems as cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned or chipped teeth and many other issues. The placing of veneers is a cosmetic procedure that usually takes two to three visits. After consulting the patient to determine what work is desired, the teeth are carefully prepared for placement of the new veneers. An impression is then made of the teeth, which is used to create your new set of veneers in a dental laboratory. The new veneers are then fitted and bonded to your own teeth. Dr. Batlle will take maximum care to ensure that your new veneers will feel just like natural teeth. The bonding process ensures that you will enjoy your new smile for years to come.
