Cosmetic Dentistry

When you smile or laugh around others, do you project a strong sense of confidence, or do you hide your teeth? If you think your image could use a boost, talk with Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson at Moorhead Dental Associates. As cosmetic dentists for Moorhead, Fargo, and surrounding areas, they would be happy to help you achieve your dreams of a dazzling smile. In just one or two visits, our dentists can complete a cosmetic dentistry plan that will transform your smile into something that will change how you look at yourself and how others look at you.

Staining is a big reason that many feel embarrassed about their smiles. With food, drinks, aging, medications and more, staining is difficult to avoid. As your cosmetic dentists, Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can help by using professional in-office teeth whitening. Through teeth whitening, we can dramatically brighten the shade of your teeth and reduce or eliminate years of built-up stains.

A common reason that patients seek out a cosmetic dentist is to fix imperfections such as gaps, chips, cracks, or a minor misalignment. Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson can repair imperfections like these with cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding can be completed in a single visit and result in beautiful, natural-looking teeth.

A cosmetic dentistry benefit can also have a restorative component. That’s exactly the case with white fillings and crowns, which are designed to tackle decay. Metal fillings and crowns can be effective too, but white fillings and white crowns look more natural, allowing you to reclaim an all-white smile.

If you’d like a more comprehensive smile makeover, consider porcelain veneers. Like cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers allow our dentists to repair imperfections such as gaps, chips, cracks, and misalignment. Instead of using bonding material, porcelain veneers use handcrafted dental shells made of fine porcelain. These shells completely cover the front surface of teeth, altering their shape, color, and size to create an entirely new look. Our dentists will show you before-and-after photos of our veneers patients so you can see for yourself the transformative effect of this amazing procedure.

With an incomplete smile, it can be difficult to enjoy a nutritious diet and confidence. That’s why we offer dental implants. Dental implants are small, titanium posts placed into the jaw. The procedure requires a brief oral surgery, which is performed by an oral surgeon or periodontist. Because titanium is a biocompatible metal, bone tissue naturally integrates with posts once they’re in place, forming a solid anchor – much like natural teeth roots. Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson will design individual crowns or a denture to attach to your implant posts.

Dental implants work well for people who have good oral health and sufficient bone density. Because missing teeth promote bone degeneration, some patients need bone grafting before implant surgery. Our dentists will assess your case and consult with your oral surgeon or periodontist to plan treatment. They will then present you with your options and explain the procedure.

For many patients, the use of dental implants has led to a significantly improved quality of life. You will be able to enjoy foods that were previously difficult to chew, and you can once again enjoy a sense of confidence and wellbeing that might have been missing from your life.
