Cosmetic Dental Solutions from Dr. Jason Skinner
Our team understands that your smile is unique, so we don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach. We design each treatment to improve function as well as aesthetics. Our team will perform a full examination to determine if any concerns need attention first. Once these issues are addressed, we offer the following cosmetic dental treatments:
Our cosmetic dental treatments can correct many common issues, including cracks, chips, misshapen teeth, discoloration, and misalignment. For those with missing teeth, we offer beautiful, custom-crafted prosthetics that also improve oral health and function.
Effective Teeth Whitening by Our Expert Mankato Team
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments is teeth whitening. We deliver convenient, professional options with GLO® in-office and take-home whitening. You can also choose Opalescence® Go take-home whitening kits with a premade tray instead of a custom one.
Dr. Jason Skinner knows how important a bright smile is, and he will do all he can to find an option that fits your budget and lifestyle. Whitening is a great way to improve the color of your teeth by multiple shades with minimal treatment time.
Invisalign for a Straight and Healthy Smile
If teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic treatment, Invisalign runs a very close second. If you have mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign offers a discreet and comfortable way to achieve a uniform, aligned smile. After a full exam and digital imaging, the Invisalign lab will create your customized aligner trays.
You’ll receive a new set of trays every two weeks that will gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positioning. The trays are removable, making it easy to eat and brush your teeth. The trays need to be worn at least 22 hours a day for optimal results, so we recommend this treatment for responsible teens and adults.
Same-Day Cosmetic Restorations with CEREC
Digital and 3D dental technology have made significant strides in developing convenient and efficient cosmetic dental restorations. With CEREC (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics), 3D scanning, and in-office milling, it’s possible to create a beautiful and customized dental restoration in just one appointment. We can create a variety of same-day cosmetic restorations, including:
- Single Crowns
- Inlays & Onlays
- Crowns for Implants
- Crowns after Root Canal Therapy
Keeping all parts of your treatment plan in our dental office allows our dental team to monitor your progress and ensure that you receive prosthetics that fit. It also saves everyone time, which makes your cosmetic dentistry treatments more effective and highly affordable.
Transform Your Smile with Veneers
Veneers offer solutions for multiple cosmetic issues and can restore one tooth or many. Porcelain veneers are beautiful and durable and can correct chips, cracks, and mild alignment problems. At our Mankato practice, veneer procedures can be completed in one appointment, depending on how many teeth need treatment.
Dr. Skinner will prep the teeth by gently removing only millimeters of enamel. We take impressions of your smile and fabricate your customized veneers right in our office using CEREC technology. The thin porcelain shells are attached using a durable adhesive that will last for many years with proper care.
