Your smile design at Point Family Dentistry transforms the overall appearance of your smile. Our cosmetic dentists near Minneapolis take the time to carefully listen to your reservations, expectations, and desires. This is followed by a comprehensive evaluation of your dentition and facial features using x-rays, photographs, study models, and diagnostic wax-ups.
Whatever is needed to enhance the stability and aesthetic appeal of your smile, we will customize your treatment plan to your unique needs and can be completed right in our office.
With porcelain veneers, our cosmetic dentist in Minneapolis can transform even the most unsightly teeth into absolutely amazing, natural-looking smiles.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic porcelain artistically customized just for you by our award-winning master lab technician. The veneers are bonded to the fronts of your teeth, covering your dental blemishes with a natural look and feel. Virtually any tooth imperfection can be corrected with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain materials are extremely durable and virtually stain-resistant. With the skilled placement by one of our dentists and proper care at home, your new smile can last decades!
We offer a variety of professional-grade products for teeth whitening in our Bloomington, MN office, which we can match to your particular goal, sensitivity level, lifestyle, and budget. They are much safer and more effective than over-the-counter options.
The treatment is simple too. Once you have reached your whitening goal, touch-ups once or twice a year can help keep your smile that nice, bright shade of white.
If you have crooked, misaligned teeth, we offer a solution that is more comfortable and discreet than traditional braces - Invisalign! These custom metal-free clear braces gently straighten teeth while going virtually unnoticed and easily being removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene.
To begin treatment, a plan is designed using 3-D imaging and impressions of the teeth to design your custom series of aligners. As treatment progresses, new aligners are provided every few weeks until your desired results are accomplished.
Metal-free fillings help you protect your smile safely and discreetly.
They are safe, do not expand or contract, and are natural in appearance. A tooth-colored composite resin material is bonded directly to the tooth surface, so hardly any natural tooth structure needs to be removed. The strong bonding properties of a metal-free filling enhances the strength of the tooth while sealing out bacteria and providing long-lasting protection.
Inlays and onlays by a cosmetic dentist near Minneapolis are fabricated by our talented dental lab, using ceramic materials and ensuring a perfect fit for the cusps of the teeth while capturing a completely natural appearance.
An inlay is used much like a standard filling - to fill in spaces within the cusps of the teeth caused by cavities and decay. An onlay is used in cases of more extensive damage and may cover much of the tooth surface, similar to a dental crown.
Even though we are using Botox® as a therapeutic treatment, you will experience the positive esthetic benefits from it by seeing a reduction in some fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® is a muscle relaxer, which has made it a great aid in many areas of dentistry, including:
Since the FDA-approved Botox® are for certain migraine headaches and are linked to chewing muscles, medical insurance may cover some of the treatment costs.
We can assist you in determining if your health plan covers this service.
Full mouth rehabilitation begins with a neuromuscular focus looking at improper bite and misalignment of the jaw. We assess this using the K7 Evaluation System. This system allows our dentists to track the position of the jaw to find your most comfortable bite.
Once this phase is complete, we will move on to the restorative phase. During this phase, any previous or needed restorative dental work will be reviewed and a treatment plan will be put into place.
