Cosmetic dentistry is designed to treat aesthetic flaws. It offers a variety of benefits. From improving the appearance of your smile to boosting your self-confidence, there are many reasons to seek cosmetic dental treatment.
Cosmetic dentistry is actually an important part of your oral health. Your teeth affect your smile, which also affects your appearance. It can also improve your bite, enhancing your oral health.
There are numerous cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you achieve a smile you love, that include:
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures among patients of all ages. Using professional-grade bleaching gel, our dentist can easily remove years of staining from your teeth. You can choose between in-office bleaching or a customized take-home whitening kit as per your comfort and need.
Dental crowns are custom-made teeth coverings that are placed over the tooth to restore its size, shape, and strength. The material that makes up the crown may be metal, ceramic, resin, or porcelain. Dental crowns are an option when a tooth is cracked or broken.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. The implant itself is a screw that replaces the root of the tooth. The screw is then attached to a prosthetic tooth. A dental restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, is then attached to the dental implant.
Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain or composite resin that cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance.
Veneers are used to fix several cosmetic concerns, including worn teeth, misaligned teeth, discolored teeth, chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, etc. This procedure is non-invasive. During your consultation, our dentist will determine if a veneer treatment is right for you.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that can improve the appearance of a tooth by covering it with a thin, tooth-colored layer of composite material. Bonding can be used to improve the appearance of a tooth that is chipped, cracked, discolored, or misshaped.
Gum contouring and gum lift treatments are procedures that can improve the appearance of your smile. Your gums play a big role in the appearance of your smile. If your gums are too puffy or too low, they can detract from your smile.
Gum contouring is a cosmetic treatment that removes excess gum tissue. This treatment can be performed on just one or all of your teeth. Your dentist can reshape your gum line to give your teeth a more attractive appearance. Gum contouring can also be combined with gum lift treatment. A gum lift is a procedure that improves the appearance of your gum line. A gum lift can correct the appearance of a “gummy” smile or close up gaps between teeth.
Smile makeovers are one of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry. They combine several dental procedures with improving the appearance of your smile. Your dentist may recommend a smile makeover if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth.
Smile makeovers often include tooth bonding, porcelain veneers, or teeth whitening. Your dentist will work with you to determine which procedures will most effectively improve your smile.
