If you want long lasting results and a better and brighter smile, then you can reach your smile goals with cosmetic and implant dentistry. These fields of dentistry produce results, and they make it possible for you to get any chipped, cracked, damaged, or even missing teeth repaired and replaced.
Do you find that your teeth are a bit discolored? Cosmetic dentistry can help whiten your teeth, restore any lost self-confidence, and give you a more youthful appearance.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to create positive changes to your teeth and help restore your smile. Cosmetic dentistry includes a number of different procedures and treatments including:
• Teeth whitening
• Dental Veneers
• Dental Crowns
• Inlays and Onlays
• Dental Implants
• Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dentistry is primarily focused on improving the beauty of your smile including the position, shape, color, size, and the alignment of your teeth; all of which can have a tremendous effect on the aesthetics of your smile.
Tooth whitening is a common procedure and is also often referred to as tooth bleaching. Laser whitening is often used and involves covering the gums with rubber so that a bleaching compound can be placed on the patient’s teeth. A beam is then used to accelerate the bleaching process and lighten the color of your teeth.
For patients that are missing teeth, dental implants are a prosthetic replacement option and consist of the implant device which is typically made of titanium, an abutment, and a dental crown. Dental implants will fuse with the jawbone and provide much more stability than dentures and can also help prevent bone loss and atrophy.
If you are unhappy with the shape of your teeth, then dental veneers may be the ideal solution. They can help close any gaps, enhance the shape of the teeth, or even change the color of the teeth if the whitening procedures prove unsuccessful.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry can provide you with the motivation you need to continue improving your smile by practicing better dental hygiene. When you are able to see the positive results the cosmetic dentistry procedures have on your appearance, you will be motivated to continue reaching for those positive results, and you will want to maintain your new smile.
