Cosmetic Dentistry in Asheville, NC
Asheville Cosmetic Dentistry and Same Day Smiles
A gorgeous smile is something that you’ll feel great about showing off. Dr. Rebekkah Merrell is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and understands just how significant a new smile can be for our patients. She has even studied with the prestigious Hornbrook Institute to master some of the most modern cosmetic trends.
Each smile makeover is tailored to the unique concerns, needs, and budget of our patients. In many cases, we combine various techniques to deliver the best aesthetic results. Sometimes, we can even complete the smile makeover in a single appointment.
ZOOM! Teeth Whitening
Our two hour, Zoom Teeth Whitening in-house bleaching procedure is the fastest and most effective way to achieve whiter teeth. As soon as your treatment is complete, you’ll have a dramatically brighter smile. Each of our patients receives a high-quality take home tray to maintain their whitening results for years to come.
You may want to make whitening a part of your smile makeover or restorative plan, as it is better for your fixed crowns or veneers to blend in with your adjacent, healthy teeth.
Laser Gum Recontouring
An uneven gumline can make your teeth look shorter than they really are. Excess tissues can make your smile appear “gummy” or unhealthy. Using a soft tissue laser, Dr. Merrell can recreate healthy gumline margins that beautifully frame your smile.
Every veneer case starts off with a visit with Dr. Merrell. We want to know about your likes, dislikes, and what you wish your smile looked like. From there, we can take an impression of your teeth and create a diagnostic wax up. This model is a “preview” of what your smile could look like with custom porcelain veneers. In some cases, you can even take a temporary design home to “try out” and get your family’s opinion. Once you’re ready to move forward, we start by prepping your teeth and working with a local lab to create the custom smile covers.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a less expensive alternative for correcting minor flaws in teeth. This straightforward procedure is relatively easy to perform and delivers immediate results. You may want to request bonding if you have a tooth that is chipped, uneven, or teeth with a small gap between them. Erasing minor irregularities can provide drastic positive changes in your appearance.
One Visit / Same Day Smiles
Thanks to our CEREC technology, Dr. Merrell can provide people like you with a same day smile makeover that’s completed in just one visit to our Asheville office. In-house milling technology allows us to craft custom veneers and crowns while you’re here with us, so that you can walk out with beautiful teeth.
Our Asheville Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry team is prevention focused. Through services like preventive cleanings, protective sealants, and fluoride (or fluoride alternatives), we can show you how to keep your teeth healthy for life.
