Cosmetic dentistry is the practice of improving the appearance of your smile. While cosmetic dentistry treatments are mostly elective, many treatments can improve your oral health by fixing bite issues, repairing damaged teeth, or filling cavities.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are used to fix many common aesthetic dental issues. The popular cosmetic dentistry treatments used are:
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, and for a good reason. The discoloration is one of the most common reasons that people visit the dentist, and teeth whitening is the fastest and most effective way to achieve a whiter smile.
Discoloration happens over time and can happen due to many different factors. From drinking coffee and wine to smoking and eating foods with a lot of colors, we put into our bodies can take a toll on our teeth.
There are mainly two types of teeth whitening: in-office whitening and at-home whitening. With in-office whitening, you can get the desired shade of your teeth in just one visit to your dentist. At-home teeth whitening is required to be done carefully and also takes time to brighten the shade of your teeth.
Dental veneers are thin shells of composite resin or porcelain that are adhered to the fronts of teeth. They can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, or discolored.
Dental bonding is the application of a composite resin material to the tooth. The composite resin material is matched to your tooth color, and the material is applied to your tooth and carefully shaped. Once it is shaped, it is hardened under a curing light and polished.
Dental bonding is quick and affordable, and it can make your smile look whiter, brighter, and straighter all at the same time.
Dental implants are a restorative procedure that replaces a missing tooth. A titanium implant is submerged into the jawbone to replace the missing root. After the implant has fused with the jawbone, a crown is placed on top of the implant. The crown will be custom-made to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth for a natural-looking result.
Porcelain crowns are custom-shaped caps that fit over a tooth. They are cemented into place and can be used to repair the shape and size of the tooth or to restore a tooth that has suffered extensive damage.
A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. There are several types of bridges, but the most common is a pontic bridge. This bridge consists of a false tooth and two dental crowns on either side. The dental crowns fit over your natural teeth. The pontic tooth is fused between the two crowns. It fills the gap, allowing you to chew and speak normally.
