Everyone wants a beautiful smile. This dream can come true with cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of teeth and gums. This field of dentistry also improves the functional and aesthetic aspects of your smile.
Some of the common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry include:
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of your teeth. They are custom-made to blend seamlessly with the natural color of your teeth.
The porcelain is translucent, allowing the natural color of your teeth to shine through while also reflecting light. This gives the veneers a radiant, bright, white appearance.
Veneers can mask a variety of imperfections, including chips, cracks, and stains.
Professional teeth whitening restores the natural color of your teeth. This gets rid of stains from common foods and drinks, such as coffee, wine, and tea. This procedure also brightens teeth that are stained due to tobacco use.
Professional teeth whitening is also more convenient than at-home whitening kits.
Dental bonding is used to fill gaps in your smile, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, and repair chipped teeth. Dental bonding is a quick procedure and can be completed in one visit. The dental bonding material is color-matched to your teeth, so no one will be able to tell you’ve had dental work done.
Porcelain crowns are one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. Porcelain crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to improve its shape, size, or appearance. Porcelain crowns are commonly used to cover teeth that are broken, chipped, or discolored.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option. Dental implants are surgically implanted into your jawbone. The implant post will integrate with the bone, providing a stable foundation for your artificial tooth. They are the closest solution to your natural teeth. They can replace one tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch.
Dental implants can also anchor a denture or partial denture and require the same care as your natural teeth.
