Could your smile benefit from a makeover? Thanks to a variety of dental cosmetic procedures, transforming your smile is easier than ever. Your North Royalton, OH, dentists, Drs. Anita and Kevin Robertson, offer CEREC same-day crowns, veneers, Invisalign and other cosmetic dentistry services at Robertson Family Dentistry.
CEREC same-day crowns
Crowns are hollow restorations that protect and restore teeth or improve their appearance. The hollow restorations are designed to slip over teeth that have been reduced in size. CEREC are created in your North Royalton dentist's office while you wait, unlike porcelain crowns that are made in dental laboratories.
Crowns are used to:
- Strengthen weak or cracked teeth
- Repair broken or fractured teeth
- Change the appearance of discolored or oddly shaped teeth
- Lengthen short teeth
Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells attached to the fronts of teeth only. Unlike dental crowns, the restorations only require removal of a tiny amount of tooth enamel.
Veneers are used to:
- Conceal imperfections, such as chips, shallow cracks, uneven surfaces, and discolorations
- Whiten your entire smile
- Close slight gaps between teeth
- Change the shape and length of teeth
Invisalign offers a more discreet straightening option than metal braces. The orthodontic system realigns teeth using clear, removable aligner trays. The trays are worn for about 20 to 22 hours every day and replaced with a new set of trays every two weeks.
Invisalign is a good choice if:
- You're a teen or adult.
- You're looking for a subtle straightening option.
- Your teeth are crooked or overlap.
- You have a mild to moderate bite problem.
Dental implants offer the newest way to replace missing teeth. Titanium implants placed in your jawbone take the place of your natural roots. The implants fuse to your jawbone in just three to six months. Once your implants are securely anchored to your bone, a dental crown is added to complete the restoration of your tooth.
Dental implants are an excellent option if:
- You want a restoration that feels like a real tooth.
- You don't want to experience any decline in biting power.
- You prefer a restoration that lasts a long time. (Implants may last your entire lifetime.)

Gaps in your smile may lead you to feel as though your teeth are not up to par, causing self-esteem issues and other problems, like trouble with chewing or speaking. However, dental implants can provide a natural-looking tooth replacement option to permanently fill your gaps.

How do dental implants work?
Dental implants have three main parts: an implant fixture, an abutment, and the prosthetic tooth. These elements work together to replace one or more missing teeth. The fixture lies within the jawbone, which grows around the metal post during the healing process. This ensures a sturdy and permanent foundation for the rest of the implant.
Are dental implants safe?
Dentists have used dental implants for upwards of five decades and these restorations have proven time and time again to be the gold standard of tooth replacement. In addition to remaining permanently in the mouth, implants also stand on their own without the help of the surrounding healthy teeth. Dental implants also have the FDA’s seal of approval and are available at most dentist’s offices.
Can dental implants help me?
A good candidate for a dental implant has no traces of teeth decay or gum disease and is in good general and dental health. The implant’s fixture requires enough bone volume in the area of the missing tooth, meaning candidates should have minimal bone atrophy. Some patients may need a bone grafting procedure prior to placing their implants.
