The Brightest Smiles in Bentonville

For optimal dental health, you should look as good as you feel. Adair Dental Arts offers a full array of cosmetic procedures to keep you smiling from ear to ear.

If you’re an adult or teenager who’s always wanted straighter teeth but doesn’t want to walk around flashing a mouthful of metal braces, Invisalign may be the clear solution for you. Invisalign can help fix an overbite, an underbite, or teeth that are either too close together or too far apart. Once you’ve talked to the preferred providers at Adair Dental Arts to determine if Invisalign is right for you, we’ll order a set of clear, comfortable, and personalized plastic aligners. You’ll wear the aligners for up to 22 hours a day and change aligners about every two weeks. Invisalign will give you the straighter smile you’ve been dreaming of in as little as a year. Once you’ve completed your Invisalign course of treatment, we recommend using Vivera retainers. Created by Invisalign, Vivera retainers are comfortable and durable, providing the protection you need to keep your teeth from shifting and keep your new and improved smile looking its best.

If you’re unhappy with your smile, it can rob you of your self-confidence. Adair Dental Arts can help you get it back with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are an ideal treatment for teeth that are discolored, worn, broken, or oddly shaped. While porcelain veneers can completely change the look of your smile, they’re less invasive than crowns. They’re designed just for you, so they’ll look just like your natural smile, if not better. With porcelain veneers, you can brush with a soft toothbrush and floss as you normally would — there’s no special care required. Talk to us about porcelain veneers so you can start showing off your new smile and your new confidence.

If you’re worried about unsightly teeth but not sure about the preparation needed for porcelain veneers, veneers may give you the smile you want. When applied directly to your natural teeth, minimal-prep veneers are ultra-thin and extremely durable. They resist bacteria and stains and can last for up to 15 years with routine care. Talk to the team at Adair Dental Arts about veneers for minimal prep and maximum smile potential.

The doctors and team at Adair Dental Arts are dedicated to helping our patients with the most severe dental needs find their smiles again. If you have extensive damage due to decay, accident, or illness, we’ll put our talents to work designing a treatment plan that combines restorative and cosmetic procedures to restore you to optimal dental health and appearance. We’ll work with you to make sure any full mouth restoration plan fits your lifestyle and your budget.

Do your gums take up too much space in your smile? Maybe you need a crown, but due to damage or decay, you don’t have enough of your tooth exposed to support one. If so, crown lengthening may help. During this minor surgical procedure, the doctor will alter both soft (gum) and hard (tooth) tissues with the help of a laser. Both the gum and supporting bone are modified creating a more even gum line. If you need extensive crown lengthening, we may refer you to a trusted periodontist in the area.

Gum or gingival recontouring aims to solve the same problem as crown lengthening – a gummy smile hiding your pearly whites. Unlike crown lengthening, gum recontouring involves working solely with the gums, no teeth or bone are involved. To get you looking your best, we’ll sculpt and reshape your gums with a soft tissue laser in one quick, and relatively pain-free appointment to remove excess tissue from your gums. With either method, the end result is a more noticeable, natural tooth surface for smile that just won’t quit.

A tiny chip in a tooth or one tooth that’s oddly shaped may be all it takes to turn your smile into a frown. Here at Adair Dental Arts, we can help turn that frown upside down with tooth recontouring. During this procedure, we’ll sand away just a bit of the tooth to change the shape and perfect your grin.

If you’re unhappy with the shape of your teeth, worried about minor chips, cracks, or discoloration, or suffer from temperature sensitivity caused by receding gums, composite bonding may be the answer to your problems. Composite bonding is a quick, non-invasive procedure. We’ll apply a durable plastic resin, shape, and mold it to the tooth’s surface, then set it using a laser or UV light. Once the resin is set, we’ll shape and polish the surface. With no pain and relatively minor expense, Adair Dental Arts can use composite bonding to perfect your smile.

If your teeth aren’t as white as they should be, Adair Dental Arts can help you reach their maximum gleam potential. We offer KöR whitening products for use both in the office and at home. KöR products are refrigerated from the time they’re manufactured until they’re ready for use, ensuring more effective whitening and less sensitivity than with other products. We also stock Opalescence tray whitening system for use at home. Be sure to talk to Dr. Adair to find out which whitening option best suits your needs.
