What cosmetic dentistry can do for you

Everywhere you look, it seems some celebrity or star is flashing the whitest, straightest, most breathtaking set of teeth you have ever seen. How do they achieve that look?

Almost always, it is thanks to the magic of cosmetic dentistry. With the right dentist, one like Dr. Brandenburg who has the training, experience, technique, and artistry, the very best can subtly and elegantly be brought out in almost any smile.

The truth is, though it is called “cosmetic,” aesthetic dentistry isn’t only about your appearance.

Sure, uncovering the radiant smile that has always been waiting to appear is a wonderful thing. But so is strengthening your worn or damaged teeth, correcting overgrown gum tissue, smoothing away jagged and irritating rough edges, and finding the self-esteem you thought you had lost forever.

Health and beauty really do go hand-in-hand! Learn more about our cosmetic dental services right here. We would love to see the star in you – confident, healthy, and celebrating every moment.

Custom designed and individually crafted porcelain veneers from Dr. Brandenburg are the premier way to reach total smile perfection– easily, quickly, and comfortably. You see, porcelain veneers create a brand-new surface for each tooth, covering every flaw, strengthening weaknesses, repairing damage, lengthening, closing gaps, evening edges…in short, making your smile look like a million bucks!

Together, you and Dr. Brandenburg will decide exactly how you want your smile to look – dental veneers are completely customizable as far as shape, size and shade! Then, we simply prepare your teeth, take impressions, send those impressions to our world-class ceramic technician, and bond the completed veneers to your teeth. And voila! Your smile is ready to show off!

Do you feel ready to give up on your smile? Does it feel as if you have been to the dentist far too many times only to need to return for another repair? Is your smile embarrass you? Maybe it is time to talk to Dr. Heidi Brandenburg about how her full-mouth restorations could help take your smile from battle-scarred and struggling to optimal form, function, and appearance.

Dr. Brandenburg’s full-mouth restorations are not limited to a single procedure. Instead, each full-mouth process is a customized combination of treatments co-planned with you, Dr. Brandenburg’s team, and some of this area’s top-notch specialists. Your treatment plan is entirely based on your specific oral-health and cosmetic needs.

A full-mouth restoration could include:

  • Periodontal treatment to ensure that the base-health of your smile is ready to support lasting beauty
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Gum or tooth recontouring
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Smile whitening

And more! Whatever your smile needs, we will take care of it so you can stop worrying about your teeth and start living life to the fullest.

Have you been feeling  that your smile lacks that sparkle? That your pearly whites just don’t show up the way you want them too when you smile? It could be because too much gum tissue is covering your teeth and not allowing your enamel to do its razzle-dazzle job. The solution? Laser-assisted gum recontouring from Minneapolis’ premier dental artist.

Excess gum tissue, or gum overgrowth, can be caused by all kinds of things from heredity and pregnancy, to certain illnesses, medications, and even braces. But no matter what has caused your gums to become enlarged or why your teeth are hiding, our laser and Dr. Brandenburg’s precision technique can remove just the right amount of gum tissue and sculpt the gum profile to reveal and frame your teeth to perfection! What’s more, since the laser heals as it works, there is often no need for anesthesia, no need at all for stitches, and recovery time is a snap. You’ll leave glowing and ready to show off your teeth instead of your gums.

Composite bonding is the basic, go-to of the dental world when it comes to cosmetic repairs. But that doesn’t mean that all cosmetic composite bonding is the same! Because composite tooth bonding is shaded, applied, and shaped directly on the tooth, it really does require an exquisitely trained and masterful touch to make it look perfectly natural. Dr. Brandenburg has that, along with hundreds of happy patients and successful cases under her belt, so you know you are getting artistry you can count on. Even children and teens can benefit from cosmetic composite bonding because of its minimal invasiveness and fast results. Composite bonding is the perfect solution when porcelain veneers aren’t really an option and can repair and perfect all kinds of issues including:

  • Minor chips
  • Cracks
  • Minimal staining
  • Small gaps
  • Minor breakage
  • Dental unevenness that can’t be solved by tooth recontouring
  • Decay on front teeth
  • Abfractions at the gum line that expose tooth roots

Clearly, composite bonding is the best choice for minor functional, restorative, or cosmetic repairs or aesthetic improvements for younger smiles.

Is your smile line a bit jagged because of trauma, wearing, or a grinding habit (bruxism)? Have you always felt self-conscious because of certain teeth being too short or too long? Do broken or jagged teeth irritate the sensitive skin inside your mouth? Have you ever looked at your nail file and wondered if maybe, just maybe, you could do a little shaping and not mention it to anyone? Step away from the manicure set and call our Brandenburg dental office for gentle, predictable tooth recontouring. Dr. Brandenburg has years of training and experience in helping patients just like you achieve the smooth, even, attractive smile you have been wishing for — often in as little as one visit and without the need for anesthetic! Dr. Brandenburg uses the kind of precision burr goldsmiths use to burnish fine jewelry to balance, polish, and refine any smile. We can even use tooth recontouring to aid in the treatment of TMJ disorder when it originates from poorly balanced restorations or a worn bite. It’s fast and easy — your smile will thank you!

Ahhhh… that fragrant cup of coffee that jumpstarts your morning. The complex little Spanish red that compliments a well-deserved evening in front of the fire. Those fresh-picked blueberries from the farmer’s market you sprinkle on your yogurt at lunch. Life’s little pleasures are delicious and make every day feel special — but they can also leave tell-tale signs on your teeth and suddenly your smile is just not up to par. Perhaps it looks a little gray or yellow or maybe just dull? Regardless, these issues are not adding to your sparkle, and that certainly isn’t adding to your quality of life. Good thing you can take charge of your smile with all the cosmetic options available here at the Minneapolis area’s choice for dentistry, including Opalescence smile whitening. Dr. Brandenburg is proud to offer Opalescence as one of the most effective and budget-friendly whitening systems available.

Our in-office tooth-bleaching choice, Opalescence Boost, can whiten your smile up to ten shades in about an hour! If you prefer to whiten on the go, ask us about the Opalescence take-home option. Either way, you will be showing the signs of life’s enjoyment in your smile – not on your teeth!
