Cosmetic Dentistry in Riverview, FL
Aesthetic imperfections can detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Treatments in cosmetic dentistry help enhance your appearance and give you the confidence to match. At Everhart Dental, Dr. Sandra Pojtek offers a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings, and more.
Over time, staining agents in the standard American diet can discolor the teeth, making them appear yellowed. Fortunately, this problem can be addressed with professional teeth whitening. At Everhart Dental, we offer both in-office and at-home whitening treatments, which can dramatically brighten your smile up to eight shades. We can help you find the right solution based on your personal preferences and goals.
Traditionally, dental fillings were made from amalgam – a mixture of silver, tin, zinc, copper, and mercury. Due to their metallic color, amalgam fillings were quite noticeable. Additionally, many individuals are concerned about their mercury content. At our practice, we offer composite fillings, which are made from a tooth-colored resin. Composite fillings are safer than their amalgam counterparts, and blend in with the natural teeth for a lifelike smile.

Sometimes dental damage is too severe to be repaired with a dental filling. Therefore, larger cavities and fractures may require a dental crown. Often referred to as a “cap”, this custom restoration fits over the whole tooth structure, providing protection, reinforcement, and strength. At Everhart Dental, our dental crowns are made from medical-grade ceramic. This advanced material reflects light in the same way natural enamel does. As a result, this type of crown blends in with your surrounding teeth for an incredibly natural look.
Inlays and Onlays
There are instances in which a tooth may be too damaged for a filling, but not damaged enough to warrant a crown. In such cases, custom inlays and onlays may be recommended. These restorations fit like puzzle pieces into the actual tooth structure, filling in any voids left behind by decay or damage. An inlay rests within the chewing surface, between the cusps. An onlay, on the other hand, covers more of the surface and includes at least one cusp. Like composite fillings and all-ceramic crowns, inlays and onlays are not noticeable once placed. No one will be able to tell you have a dental restoration.
Chips, craze lines, gaps, discoloration, and other aesthetic flaws can make even a healthy smile appear rough and jagged. Porcelain veneers conceal these imperfections by altering the shape, size, and color of the affected teeth. Ultra-strong and ultra-thin, porcelain veneers are crafted from layers of medical-grade ceramic. Once affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth, they can dramatically improve the appearance of a smile.
Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Virtually anyone who wishes to enhance their smile can be considered for cosmetic dentistry treatments. However, it’s important to note that candidates should have healthy teeth and gums, free from decay, infection, and disease. If these issues are present, Dr. Pojtek can recommend restorative procedures to improve oral health prior to cosmetic treatments.
