Cosmetic Dentistry Vancouver WA
First impressions are important. Whether you are interviewing for a new job, applying for a promotion, trying to close a deal, going on a first date, or even just meeting new people for the first time, the first impressions you leave can make a world of difference in the opinions that others form about you. A big factor in your first impression is your smile. If you are not happy with your smile, it will show. Moreover, it can also reflect in the impressions you make. At Oasis Dental, we can help you to improve the quality of your smile, and your overall appearance, with cosmetic dentistry.

It’s not just what’s in your mouth that affects your smile. It is also about what’s around your smile. Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. However, they can often appear earlier than we might like due to numerous external factors, including sun exposure, habits like smoking, or even just smiling a lot.
When lines and wrinkles form, you instantly look older. Botox injections are a cosmetic treatment meant to reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles, smoothing your skin and taking years off of your appearance. Botox is an injectable treatment that works by blocking nerve signals that tell certain muscles to contract. Because the muscles cannot contract, your skin can smooth out. Read more about Botox.
Composite fillings are an alternative to the more well-known amalgam ones, providing a cosmetic as well as a functional solution for cavities. Instead of being silver, composite fillings are tooth colored. The composite material is available in many shades, enabling us to select the one that most closely matches your natural tooth color. The material bonds with your tooth, protecting it while also improving your smile. In addition to being tooth-colored, composite also does not have any metal, nor does it have any mercury.

Damaged front teeth affect both your smile as well as your oral health. To treat more significant damage, a crown may be recommended. We offer ceramic crowns as an aesthetic and functional solution for these damaged teeth. The crown helps to protect the tooth, preventing further harm and infections, while the ceramic material perfectly restores your smile. Read more about Dental Crowns.
Minor damage might not impact your oral health at all, but that does not mean the impact is any less when it comes to the quality of your smile. This type of damage does not typically require a crown. Instead, we can provide a less invasive yet equally effective cosmetic solution with veneers. Veneers are made from porcelain. Like crowns, they perfectly blend in with the rest of your teeth. Instead of covering the whole tooth, veneers only cover the front. It effectively obscures the imperfections in your teeth, rendering them invisible. Instead, you are left with a beautiful smile that is free from flaws. Read more about Teeth Veneers.
Today, there are numerous options for replacing missing teeth. One of the most popular solutions is dental implants. Not only do dental implants restore the natural functions of your missing teeth, but they are also the most realistic replacement option available. Moreover, because the posts in jaw mimic your natural tooth roots, they help to preserve your jawbone. This helps to preserve the shape and esthetics of your facial features.

Sometimes, all a smile needs are just to be a bit brighter. However, over the counter whiteners can take a long time to work, and they might only produce barely noticeable results. We can help to whiten your teeth several shades in much less time with professional whitening. Our whitening products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, making this possible. We can provide you with an in-office procedure or with custom trays that enable you to whiten your teeth at home. Read more about Teeth Whitening.
Bonding is the least invasive cosmetic solution for dealing with minor dental imperfections. It can often be used as an alternative to veneers. Instead of preparing the tooth and placing a porcelain shell on it, bonding uses composite resin to fill in cracks or gaps, lengthen a short tooth, or even cover stains that cannot be treated with whitening. Bonding is not as strong as veneers, but it can be a more affordable, less invasive option. Read more about Dental Bonding.
Straightening crooked teeth is not only good for improving your smile. Sometimes, it can also be beneficial for improving your oral health as well. There are several options for straightening crooked teeth now, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, and Invisalign. We can determine the best orthodontic treatment to help you achieve your ideal smile while also improving your oral health. Read more about Orthodontics.
Six Month Smiles
If you only have minor alignment issues with your front teeth, you may be a candidate for Six Month Smiles. This is a purely cosmetic solution that helps to improve your smile in just 6 months. Treatment involves the placement of clear brackets on your front upper and lower teeth. A nickel-titanium wire is then used to help correct the alignment of your teeth. Because the brackets are clear, treatment is much more discreet. What’s more, is that you achieve a more beautiful smile in 6 months or less. Read more about Six Month Smiles®.
