Research has shown that when you smile, you improve your mood as well as the moods of those around you. Smiling can also help you make a great impression on others, and the simple act of smiling can even increase your feelings of self-confidence. Some studies show that servers who smiled got bigger tips! Smiles have power, and you want yours to look its best. That’s why we offer several cosmetic dentistry services at our Omaha dental office. We know that you come to us not just for great health but for great aesthetic results as well.
Conceal Flaws with Porcelain Veneers
If you have a smile that’s been marred by chips, cracks, gaps, misshapen teeth, or crookedness, you know all too well what those problems do to your self-confidence. You probably don’t really feel all that inspired to smile. You can, however, do something about that. With porcelain veneers, we can give you a smile makeover that will turn your damaged smile into a thing of beauty you just can’t wait to show off. Porcelain veneers are kind of like magic – we take your smile and cover up the cracks, gaps, or other problems to make it appear straight, white, and whole.
How do porcelain veneers work? Porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain. They’re very thin, allowing us to place them over your natural teeth. Your natural teeth may require a bit of preparation to make this possible, but porcelain veneers are generally more conservative than porcelain crowns. The veneers are bonded to your own teeth, giving them a makeover. Porcelain is strong, durable, and has a natural appearance. We think you’ll love your new smile.
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers (the "no prep" veneer) provide a better solution for big smile problems than you would get with cosmetic dental bonding, and they can take care of other problems while also whitening your teeth. For a truly comprehensive smile solution, porcelain veneers are a great choice. Want to consider other cosmetic dentistry options? We offer many, so we can craft a makeover plan that suits your smile.
We can perform your smile makeover with porcelain veneers right here at our Omaha dental office. We invite you to contact us today to make an appointment. Our cosmetic dentists have performed many smile makeovers and understand how to bring out the best in your smile. They’ve helped patients from Council Bluffs, Bellevue, and Papillion-La Vista as well.
Minimal Prep Veneers with Lumineers
Lumineers are a special type of minimally- or non-invasive porcelain veneers. Traditional veneers can usually only be placed on the teeth after a small layer of enamel has been removed, so you will always need something covering the tooth. Lumineers, however, are reversible should you wish to return to your natural smile in the years to come. But because Lumineers dramatically enhance the appearance of imperfect teeth, most people never look back after choosing the treatment.
Healthy, Cosmetic Results with Tooth-Colored Restorations
When the front teeth are affected by damage or decay, restoring their appearance is just as important as renewing their health. Metal-free restorations give you back your strong, beautiful smile -- and with CEREC technology, they can be completed in just one visit to the Greder Dental office.
From crowns and bridges to inlays and onlays, CEREC allows Dr. Mack Greder and Dr. Jennifer Greder to prepare, create, and place your beautiful new restoration from the comfort of our office. The in-house milling machine works with a single block of porcelain to create a restoration that blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. In addition to being sturdy and visually appealing, dental porcelain also reflects light like the original tooth enamel for the most natural-looking results. And because it is highly resistant to stains, your new restoration will not absorb the colors of what you eat and drink.
Instant Results with Dental Bonding
For those small dental imperfections, we offer cosmetic dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding makes chipped teeth whole and closes the gap between teeth, reshaping misshapen smiles with a moldable composite resin material. The cosmetic dental bonding material is strong; it’s the same material used to create tooth-colored composite fillings. While some smiles require a bit more intervention, like with porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding makes a great conservative cosmetic dentistry solution for those with minor issues.
Bright, Brilliant Smiles with Teeth Whitening
Many in office teeth whitening procedures are often performed with the help of a light. While this option has proven popular, many don’t realize that the light causes extra sensitivity and discomfort until after they’re in the dental chair. At that point, it’s too late to reverse course and achieve the results you’re looking for. With non-light teeth whitening from Greder Dental, you can achieve stellar results without the added discomfort.
Our in-office teeth whitening system relies on a chemical combination to enhance the action of the bleaching agent rather than a light. You get great results, brightening your teeth by several shades in a single visit to our Omaha dental office. It is also a more comfortable form of in-office teeth whitening, and it doesn’t dry out your gums the way the light does.
We also offer take-home whitening for our patients. With take-home teeth whitening, you get to brighten your smile in your own time. It takes longer than with in-office whitening, which generally takes about an hour of in-office time, but many people prefer to have the flexibility of take-home teeth whitening. Custom-made bleaching trays and special professional-grade whitening gel make take-home teeth whitening from your dentist more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening systems.
Porcelain veneers is another way to change the appearance of a stained smile. If you’ve got other aesthetic issues with your smile as well as stained or discolored teeth, you might consider porcelain veneers in place of teeth whitening. We’ll make sure to thoroughly examine your teeth and make a recommendation for what will fit your situation best.
Contact Greder Dental in Omaha, Nebraska for an appointment to discuss teeth whitening. We can brighten smiles in Bellevue, Council Bluffs, and Papillion-La Vista as well as Omaha. Helping our patients achieve gorgeous smiles makes us feel good because it makes you feel good.
Even, Symmetrical Smiles with Gum Contouring
Just as important as the health and appearance of your teeth is that of your gums. Beautiful teeth deserve an attractive frame to set them off, after all. If you feel like you have too much gum tissue covering up your teeth, or if the reverse is true and there’s not enough there, you may be reluctant to flash your dazzling teeth. Gum recontouring and crown lengthening repair gummy smiles to help you smile with full confidence.
Precise Planning with Digital Smile Design
It can be difficult to imagine just how beautiful your smile will look after your cosmetic treatment plan is complete. The old maxim that a picture is worth a thousand words couldn’t be truer in dentistry. Drs. Mack and Jennifer Greder use special software to apply your potential changes to a digital photo of you. It’s a helpful visual representation that makes it easier to decide which treatments are right for you.
