Improve Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure used to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. The dentist offering cosmetic dentistry procedures uses a variety of techniques to improve the aesthetics of a smile.

Here are some of the popular cosmetic dentistry procedures:

Teeth Whitening

Many cosmetic dental procedures are designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Although teeth whitening will not completely erase stains and discoloration, it can noticeably enhance the beauty of your teeth. Professional teeth whitening treatments are able to brighten teeth up to ten shades in a short amount of time, whereas over-the-counter products can typically only lighten the teeth up to three shades. Patients can also expect professional bleaching agents to also work much more quickly than store-bought whitening strips or trays.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth and leave you with an attractive smile. Because they are so thin and light, no one will be able to tell you to have a veneer in place. Veneers are also resistant to staining, so you can expect them to look just as white and bright as ever for many years after you get the procedure done. While porcelain is semi-translucent, it is also stain-resistant, making it the ideal material to use for veneers. Getting veneers requires several appointments with the dentist, but it’s a relatively quick process overall.

First, you’ll have a consultation appointment where your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to make sure you’re a good candidate for this procedure. If you agree to it, you’ll then get impressions made so that your custom veneers can be made in a lab. When you return for your second appointment, the veneer will be placed over your tooth using a special bonding agent. After it’s set into place, your veneer will be polished to give you a natural-looking shine before being secured permanently to your tooth. 

Dental Bonding

The cosmetic dental bonding process allows our dentist to mold a material directly onto the tooth to alter the shape, size, or color of the tooth. The material is then hardened in place with a special light, so it adheres strongly to the tooth enamel.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. They are the only tooth replacement option that restores both the root and crown of a tooth with excellent results. A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone to act as a root for a dental crown. The crown fits over the implant, creating a natural and seamless appearance.
