- DR. MARIA ROJAS

Cosmetic Dentist 

Welcome to Point Meadows Dental Spa, your destination for Esthetics and Cosmetic Dentistry in Jacksonville, FL, led by the skilled hands of Dr. Sarah Danser and Dr. Hanna Mularkey.

While our primary concern is always your dental health, we understand the profound importance of a beautiful smile. A bright, white, and captivating smile can boost your confidence, positively influence how others perceive you, and bring greater satisfaction to your personal and professional life. Conversely, noticeable issues like stains, chips, cracks, gaps, or missing teeth can impact your self-esteem.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry services encompass a range of procedures, including:

  • Teeth Whitening: Whether performed in our office or using at-home kits prescribed by our dentists, teeth whitening helps remove stains and discoloration, rejuvenating your smile.

  • Dental Bonding: This technique involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to address minor imperfections like chips, cracks, or gaps. The resin is skillfully shaped, hardened, and polished to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.

  • Porcelain Veneers: Custom-made, ultra-thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, masking a variety of issues, such as discoloration, misshapen teeth, or uneven spacing, to create a stunning smile.

  • Dental Crowns: While often used for restorative purposes, dental crowns can also enhance your smile's appearance. These customized crowns cover the visible portion of a tooth, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

  • Gum Contouring: Reshaping the gum line can create a more symmetrical and balanced appearance, addressing concerns like a "gummy smile" or uneven gum margins.

  • Dental Implants: Primarily a restorative treatment, dental implants also contribute to an improved smile by replacing missing teeth with lifelike prosthetics.

  • Complex Aesthetic Rehabilitation: For comprehensive smile transformations, this approach is recommended when extensive damage or decay affects most or all of your teeth. It focuses on both restoring function and enhancing your smile's overall appearance.

Who is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

If you’re ready to upgrade your smile, we’re proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental services that can help you achieve a set of pearly whites you’ll be excited to show off! However, with so many treatments to choose from, it’s natural to have a few questions. For your convenience, we’ve gathered a few common questions we get about cosmetic dentistry below. If you don’t see the answers you’re looking for, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help!

If you’re embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth or feel self-conscious about your smile, there’s a good chance that cosmetic dentistry is right for you! However, you may need to complete a few preliminary treatments before improving your pearly whites. Oral health issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and teeth grinding can make some services uncomfortable or even threaten their success. If we detect any warning signs of these issues, we’ll work with you to create a plan for getting your oral health back on track. Once your smile is healthy, we can move on to enhancing its appearance.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

Just as no two smiles are the same, no two cosmetic dental treatments are exactly alike. There are multiple factors that go into determining how long it will take to improve your pearly whites, such as your age, oral health, and the severity of your case. Additionally, various treatments take different amounts of time to complete. For example, a quick and easy teeth whitening treatment may only take a single appointment, while designing, crafting, and placing a custom veneer may take several weeks.

How Can I Tell Which Cosmetic Service Is Right for Me?

After discussing your goals and carefully inspecting your teeth, your Jacksonville cosmetic dentists, Dr. Mularkey and Dr. Rojas ,will fully explain all your options as well as their recommendations. To correct multiple issues at once, they may suggest a complex aesthetic rehabilitation to utilize several treatments to achieve the best results. We want you to feel 100% confident in any treatment you choose here at Point Meadows Dental Spa. 

If you have questions about your payment options, or you are ready to schedule an appointment, contact our office today. We look forward to helping you achieve your best smile.

Dental Veneers in Jacksonville, FL

What are Veneers?

 

Is your smile hampered by multiple imperfections, and you just do not know which one to take care of first? Do noticeable stains, chips, cracks, or gaps cause you to think twice before smiling or even taking a bite of food? Veneers have been used for decades to address several cosmetic issues and make dental flaws disappear! Now, you can get them in just two to three appointments with Point Meadows Dental Spa. Dr. Maria Rojas and Dr. Hanna Mularkey will transform your teeth and give you the smile of your dreams. To learn more or schedule a consultation, just give us a call!

What are dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that are placed over the front surface of the teeth to mask imperfections. They are able to conceal all sorts of different cosmetic flaws that many people feel self-conscious about. They are often considered by people who have teeth that are:

  • Cracked

  • Chipped

  • Misshapen

  • Discolored

  • Undersized

  • Gapped

 

The dental porcelain and ceramic that is used to make veneers closely resemble your natural tooth enamel, leaving you with a beautiful, healthy appearance! On top of that, these materials are very strong and prevent stains and chips in the future.

 

What are the benefits of dental Veneers?​

Veneers have numerous different benefits for patients who want to say goodbye to aesthetic flaws. Here are just a few of them:

  • Stain resistance: Veneers resist stains much more than your natural tooth enamel does. Ultimately, they are a long-term whitening solution.

  • Long life: When you care for them properly, veneers can last upwards of 15 years!

  • Natural-looking: Veneers are placed carefully in a way that makes them appear to be natural. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had cosmetic work!

  • Personalized: Dental veneers are made to be the exact size, shape, and color needed to flawlessly blend in with the rest of your smile.

 

What is the process for Veneers?

The first step of this process is your initial consultation with Dr. Maria Rojas or Dr. Hanna Mularkey. At this time, you will discuss the goals that you have for your smile and how veneers can help you to achieve the result you’re looking for. If you’re deemed to be a good candidate for the procedure, a small portion of your protective enamel will be removed from the front-facing surface of the teeth and an impression will be made. This impression is sent to a dental laboratory where your dental veneers will be crafted. In the meantime, we’ll provide you with a temporary set of veneers so that you can become accustomed to how your teeth feel once you receive your permanent ones. As soon as we get your veneers, you will be able to return to the practice, and they will be cemented into place. At this time, small adjustments can be made to give you a perfectly comfortable and natural-looking smile!

Teeth Whitening in Jacksonville, FL

​Teeth whitening is a quick and highly effective way to enhance the appearance of your teeth and to give yourself an overall brighter smile. Teeth become stained or discolored for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Poor oral and/or dental hygiene habits.

  • High consumption of drinks that stain (tea, wine, coffee, soda, etc.).

  • Smoking or Drug Use

  • Illness or Certain Prescribed Medication

  • Fluorosis

  • Aging - Over time, the teeth darken with a yellow, brown, green or grey cast (which may be heredity). Yellowed teeth tend to whiten most readily.​

Take-Home System

If you’re looking for an alternative to in-office whitening treatment, then our take-home whitening system may be the right option for you. Only dentists can provide systems that contain the highest percentage of bleaching agents, compared to the low-dose over-the-counter kits. The take-home system includes custom-fitted application trays made of a flexible plastic material and offers several benefits:

  • They ensure that the bleach stays in contact with the teeth, for maximum results.

  • They help prevent saliva from mixing with the bleaching agent (which can dilute its strength).

  • They minimize the amount of bleach that can irritate the gums.

 

Procedure: Bleaching compounds are stored in syringes and provided for our patients to apply to their trays as needed. We will fine-tune the bleach concentration and add a desensitizing agent to use. Generally, our kits provide enough gel for one two-week treatment per year, plus one- or two-day touch-ups every four to six months.

 

 

In-Office Bleaching

Professional, in-office teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world today. In-office whitening takes place under carefully monitored conditions which allow for the controlled, safe, pain-free use of a high concentration of bleaching gel – yielding results that are visible immediately. Advantages of In-Office Bleaching:

  • Produces the fastest results.

  • The safest form of bleaching.

  • Gum and tooth sensitivity are more controllable due to thicker peroxide gels and the use of desensitizers such as potassium nitrate and fluoride.

Procedure: Typically, this procedure is not painful or uncomfortable; in fact, many patients watch a DVD or doze off during the procedure. A cosmetic consultation and dental exam are required before any teeth whitening treatment.

Stains That Cannot Be Removed with a Whitening System

Some dental situations can cause undesirable reverse effects, specifically teeth with certain stains that are inorganic. Inorganic stains do not respond well to bleaching systems. In fact, these teeth may look even darker after the surrounding teeth have been whitened. This is why it is important to consult a dental professional for teeth whitening!

 

Here are some examples of teeth that will not whiten:

  • Trauma, which causes the dentin to darken.

  • Certain antibiotics are ingested during tooth formation. These drugs chemically bind with the crystalline structure of both the tooth’s enamel and underlying dentin.

  • Overexposure to fluoride, which can cause fluorosis, resulting in tooth discoloration.

 

If you think you may fall into this category, don’t stress just yet! We have options and solutions, for example; veneers, dental crowns, partials, inlays/onlays, etc.!  A cosmetic consultation is your first step, give us a call! today!
