Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure that improves the appearance of your smile. It can include anything from teeth whitening to veneers to dental implants.
Many patients can benefit from cosmetic dentistry procedures. If you have had trauma to the teeth, causing chips, cracks, discoloration, or other issues, then veneers or dental crowns can help.
Cosmetic dentistry can help conceal the imperfections in your teeth. Whether your teeth are discolored, worn down, or have chips or cracks, cosmetic dentistry can help. Veneers can be used to reshape your teeth, and dental crowns can be used to conceal dental issues.
Your dentist will assess your teeth, understand the issues and work with you to create a custom plan to improve the appearance of your smile.
Teeth whitening refers to any process used to eliminate dental stains and brighten the appearance of a patient’s teeth. Dentists provide patients with several options for teeth whitening, like in-office teeth whitening and at-home whitening systems.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells used to conceal minor dental issues and improve teeth appearance. The veneers look and function just like natural teeth and can last for many years before needing to be replaced. This procedure is also quite affordable, making it accessible to most people.
Dental bonding is a quick cosmetic procedure that uses composite resin to repair small cosmetic issues, such as chips, cracks, and discoloration. It is also used to address minor tooth decay. The procedure is simple and quick and can even be performed in a single office visit.
A dental crown is a cap-like covering of porcelain or ceramic that goes over a tooth. This restoration is used to strengthen a tooth that has broken or has been damaged by decay. Crowns can also be used to cover teeth that are misshapen or discolored.
Porcelain crowns are a popular choice because they look very natural and are very durable. Porcelain also reflects light, just like enamel, so your smile will look natural!
Dental bridges are permanent restorations that fill in gaps caused by missing teeth. Dental bridges are a good solution to restore your smile because they are strong, durable, and natural-looking. They also prevent your remaining teeth from moving out of place and help maintain the shape of your face.
Dental implants are used primarily for people who have lost teeth due to an accident, gum disease, or old age. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent.
While traditional braces are still the most common orthodontic procedure, there are numerous other options available.
Gum contouring can improve the appearance of a gummy smile. This is the term for a smile that shows a lot of gum tissue. Dental crown lengthening or gum grafting can remove excess gum tissue and reshape your gumline.
