Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that mainly focuses on improving one’s smile. There are numerous benefits of cosmetic dentistry.
Improving one’s smile can boost one’s self-confidence. A beautiful smile is attractive and can also exude friendliness and warmth.
Cosmetic dentistry can help bring back your beautiful smile. If you have lost one or more teeth due to injury or tooth decay, cosmetic dentistry can help restore those missing teeth. If you have discolored or stained teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help restore them.
Your smile can affect your overall health. Cosmetic dentistry can help improve your dental health, which can improve your overall health as well.
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that adheres to the front of your tooth. The veneer covers the surface of your tooth, giving it a brand-new look. Your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers if you have:
The porcelain veneers procedure typically takes two to three visits to complete. The veneers are custom-created by a professional dental lab based on an impression of your teeth. Then, they are bonded to the front surface of your teeth at your final visit.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to protect it from further damage. Dental crowns are typically used if there is more extensive damage that would prevent a tooth from being able to support a filling or if a tooth has been treated with a root canal.
One of our most popular procedures is teeth whitening. This treatment uses a bleaching gel containing hydrogen peroxide to lift stains from tooth enamel. After keeping the gel on the teeth for a specified time, it is rinsed off. The process is repeated till the desired level of whitening is applied. A professional teeth whitening treatment can lighten the teeth by up to five or six shades.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that’s used to replace a missing tooth. Typically, a dental bridge is made up of an artificial tooth that’s secured between two dental crowns. The dental crowns, which are attached to your natural teeth, will support the bridge.
Dental implants are a popular alternative to dentures and dental bridges. They allow you to replace missing teeth without the visible metal appliances, and because they actually replace the tooth root, they support a variety of dental restorations. For instance, dental implants can be used to secure dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.
These small titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone. Over the course of several weeks, they fuse with the bone, creating a stable foundation. The implant acts just like a natural tooth root, keeping your jawbone healthy and preventing tooth loss.
Invisalign® is a popular alternative to metal braces. The clear, comfortable aligners gradually realign your teeth without wires or brackets. They’re removable, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in them while you’re eating or cleaning your teeth. Since they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them!
Dental contouring and reshaping procedures can correct crooked teeth or uneven gum lines. Contouring involves trimming away small amounts of enamel to allow your teeth to appear less crowded. Reshaping involves adjusting your teeth’s length, shape, or surface. For example, veneers can cover imperfections, such as minor chips or gaps between your teeth.
Gum lifts and gum contouring can address an asymmetrical gum line. While a gum lift procedure isn’t medically necessary, it can improve the look of your smile. A gum lift procedure can even out an uneven gum line, creating a more symmetrical appearance. A gum lift procedure can also address receding gums. A gum lift can correct the appearance of receded gums by reshaping the gum line.
