The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry offers patients a full range of options for improving the look and feel of their smiles. Whether focusing on a single procedure or a full smile makeover, cosmetic dentistry can address several dental concerns. Patients choose cosmetic dentistry because the results of the treatments are more esthetically pleasing than other dental treatments. After cosmetic dental procedures, patients can enjoy renewed confidence in their smiles. They can smile proudly again without worrying about the condition of their teeth and gums. Patients can walk into their social and professional interactions feeling completely confident.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve the appearance of your teeth. It involves a tooth-colored resin being applied to a damaged, cracked, or broken tooth. The resin can also cover up imperfections like chips and stains. The dentist will sculpt the resin into the right shape for your tooth.
- Dental Contouring
Dental contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that modifies the structure of your natural tooth and gives it a more attractive shape. Contouring is typically done to improve the look of chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth.
- Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of porcelain or composite material attached to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can conceal aesthetic dental flaws, including chips, cracks, and staining. Veneers can instantly give you a smile that looks straighter, whiter, and brighter.
- Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth can boost your confidence and help you look younger, and there is no better way to do that than a professional in-office treatment. Our dentist applies a gel containing a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, a substance that bleaches away stains and discoloration, on the teeth and activates it using a special light to get dramatic results in only one visit.
- Dental Crowns
Dental crowns fit over the tooth's entire surface above the gum line. This restoration can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Many patients prefer porcelain dental crowns because they look like natural teeth.
