A Smile Impossible To Ignore

Arbor Lakes Dental - Jamie L. Sledd, DDS For A Smile Impossible To Ignore

Is it possible to stop, or at least slow down, the aging process? Goodness knows, we try! From face lifts to Botox to hair implants, to simply staying in shape – we’re contantly trying to maintain that youthful appearance. Another great option are porcelain veneers from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are affixed to the fronts of your teeth. It’s an easy way to mask any flaws, such as chips, cracks, or gaps between teeth.

Veneers are also great for whitening your smile. Our teeth naturally grow dull over the years. A lifetime of coffee or tea, red wine, and a host of other food and drink take a toll. You’ll still need to brush, of course. But veneers are largely stain-resistant, so once they’re in place you’ll never have to worry about discoloration again.

There is more than just a cosmetic benefit to porcelain veneers. Tooth enamel can grow thin over the years, from overzealous brushing and highly acidic foods and drinks. Unfortunatley, enamel won’t grow back: once it’s gone, it’s gone. Veneers are great treatment for teeth that have compromised enamel.

Porcelain veneers from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove leave you with a youthful new smile, one that your friends will find impossible to ignore. They’re just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Do You Love Your Smile?

Minneapolis Cosmetic Dentistry

The people who are happiest with their smiles have healthy, straight teeth that sparkle when they laugh. If nature didn’t bless you with attractive teeth, you are not alone! Most perfect smiles you see were not always that way: they are the result of cosmetic dentistry, like what we provide at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove.

Two common smile issues are yellow enamel and chipped teeth.

Discolored Teeth
Few of us are blessed with pearly white smiles that stay that way forever. Even with consistent brushing, flossing and dental cleanings,  teeth darken as we age.

That explains the popularity of teeth whitening. Can you picture yourself with a celebrity-caliber smile? Teeth whitening makes it possible!

Damaged Teeth
Our teeth work hard for us day after day, year after year. Sometimes they get chipped or cracked in the process. If you would like to fix your tooth flaws, porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding have been used with great results for many years.

At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. Other services include restorative dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today!

Smile Transformations At Arbor Lakes Dental

smile makeovers Maple Grove

This article from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove is for people who aren’t comfortable with their smile.

Don’t Like Your Teeth?

Common concerns include yellow teeth, missing, damaged or misaligned teeth, and too much or too little gum tissue.

Smile enhancement through cosmetic dentistry can have positive changes on your life. The smallest improvement can boost your self-confidence. We have many techniques we can use, depending on the state of your smile: we can correct teeth that are discolored, chipped, mis-shapen, and even missing.

Traditional dentistry addresses the health of your teeth and gums, and that certainly has its place in what we do. Cosmetic dentistry aims to complement the overall general and dental health of each patient. We do more than recommend specific procedures. We consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth, and the facial shape and coloring of each patient. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment. (If only!)

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear over the years. But cosmetic dentistry from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove can transform your smile! We also offer a full range of family dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Which Tooth Whitener Works Best?

Dazzling White Teeth in Maple Grove

Americans spend millions of dollars every year on teeth whitening products. Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and more beautiful smile, and it’s easy to see why: a healthy, white smile is pleasing to see on others, and an asset in social and professional settings. At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we can help you get the smile of your dreams.

Have you been down the Oral Care aisle at the grocery store lately? There is so much to choose from. Which one works the best?

What each of these products has in common is a bleaching agent that works on the surface stains of your teeth. And to be fair, they do a pretty good job whitening teeth.

But who wants to settle for a pretty good job? Over-the-counter products all pale in comparison to the professional-grade teeth whitening. We have two options: in-office treatment, and take-home kits.

Each can give you the brilliant smile you’ve always wanted. How, you may wonder, are these take-home kits any better than what you’ll find in the grocery store? The answer is that they are professional strength.

Professional-grade teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to ten shades. It is the safest, most convenient way to achieve a fabulous white smile. Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove offers a range of other cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve any smile. Make an appointment with us today.

Your Famous Smile

Veneers in Maple GroveThis message from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove looks at cosmetic dentistry, and what it can do for your smile.

How do famous people keep brilliant white smiles that are always ready for the red carpet or a close-up? Do they avoid coffee? Not likely. Every tabloid is full of pictures of famous men and women holding Starbucks cups. Do they avoid tobacco? Some do, but smoking seems to be a pitfall of public life.

Many Famous Smiles Were Not Always Flawless

Not everyone with perfect teeth was born that way. Many celebrities have gorgeous smiles because they have had cosmetic dentistry.

No Need To Go To Hollywood

Guess what? You can also have a celebrity smile. Cosmestic dentistry uses sound dental techniques to bring positive changes to any smile.

Even the smallest cosmetic improvement can boost your self-confidence. We have many techniques we can use, depending on the state of your smile: we can correct teeth that are discolored, chipped, mis-shapen, and even missing.

VIP Treatment

Your teeth endure a lot of wear and tear, but cosmetic dentistry from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove can give you a VIP smile. We also offer restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

How Bright Can You Shine?

Affordable Maple Grove Cosmetic Dentistry

Most people notice their teeth getting dull as the years go by. Maybe duller teeth is the least of our worries as we age. On the other hand, who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we improve smiles with teeth whitening every day!

There are lots of teeth whitening choices out there, and over the counter products like whitening strips and toothpastes can be moderately effective. But they cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.

Stained Teeth?

There are two types of tooth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.

  • Extrensic stains. Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them, because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
  • Intrinsic stains. These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.

We use KöR and GLO teeth whitening products, with breakthrough  technology that gets your teeth their whitest. We have in-office whitening and take-home kits.

Professional teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove. Schedule an appointment today!

Smile Perfection

Minneapolis low cost teeth whiteningAt Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we create perfect smiles for our smile redesign patients.

Of course, perfect is a pretty tall order.  We all want to look our best, and a perfect smile goes a long way to achieving that end.

But cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about looking good; it is good for your dental health. For example, straight teeth in the correct position are easier to care for, and make for a healthier mouth. That probably explains why clear braces are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry options; they can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Clear braces are not the only cosmetic dentistry option. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures out there. A lot of people try to get whiter teeth at home, and there is a nearly bewildering selection of over-the-counter whitening products on the market. But none of them – not toothpastes, strips, or gels – can match the power of professional-grade teeth whitening.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can completely transform the appearance of your smile, and like other cosmetic dentistry, are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile. Is it perfect? We’ll let you be the judge!

At Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove, we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to transform your smile into something spectacular. We also offer a full range of family dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

cosmetic dental and implants Maple Grove

Do you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? These celebrations usually involve a lot of photographs and, of course, you want to look great. You may not have time to lose 20 pounds, but you can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove.

Here are five cosmetic dental procedures that can usually be performed in one office visit.

1. Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been a celebrated treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the remarkable results they provide. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or fix a misshapen tooth.

2. Gum Contouring
Perhaps your teeth are brilliant and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and transform your smile. Book a consultation with Dr. Sledd today for an extensive examination and expert guidance regarding your gumline.

3. Enamel Shaping
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the aspects of a smile even if all the other teeth have an attractive appearance. (Your mouth is no place for a sore thumb, right?) Let Dr. Sledd reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.

4. Bonding
Dental bonding just gets better and better as additional unprecedented materials are developed. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to fix teeth with cosmetic and structural troubles. The newest prep techniques are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.

5. Teeth Whitening
Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like a phenomenal white smile to give you optimal confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove is an investment that will bless you every day. We also offer a full range of family dentistry services.
