Your smile can be enhanced with cosmetic dentistry! From minor imperfections to major repairs, a dentist can help patients achieve their ideal smiles with a variety of treatments.
There are many cosmetic dental procedures available to improve the look of your smile. These procedures can correct the appearance of chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth; close gaps between teeth; and even brighten a smile that has yellowed with age. Some common options are listed below:
A thin shell of porcelain is bonded to the fronts of your existing teeth to mask imperfections like chips, cracks, and stains. Veneers can be matched to the exact color of your surrounding teeth for a seamless and natural look.
There are several ways to whiten your teeth, including take-home kits and professional teeth whitening treatments. Our dentist will be able to recommend the right option for you during your consultation. Professional teeth whitening treatment provides the quickest and most effective results. After about an hour of sitting in the office, you can walk out with significantly whiter teeth! This professional treatment is safe and effective for most patients. Take-home kits may be more convenient for use at home, but it may take a bit longer to achieve desired results. Some patients may not achieve the same bright white shade as they would from a professional whitening treatment.
If you have teeth that have suffered minor damage, such as cracks or chips, cosmetic bonding may be the best option for you. Similar to veneers, bonding uses composite resin to correct your smile’s imperfections. Unlike veneers, though, the procedure is less invasive and can be completed in one visit. The bonding material will be bonded to your tooth and then sculpted to look natural and beautiful. Once it’s shaped and polished, you’ll be left with a brand-new smile!
A dental implant post is surgically implanted into the jawbone, where it acts as an artificial tooth root. The dentist then places an abutment and crown over the implant to create a realistic-looking replacement tooth.
It’s important to remember that while these treatments can improve the look of your teeth, they won’t address an underlying dental concern. It’s usually best to undergo restorative dental treatments to address more serious issues. In many cases, it’s best to choose a cosmetic dentist who offers the convenience of both general and cosmetic services in one convenient location. That way, you can receive the best care possible without having to travel between dentists’ offices.
