Are you feeling self-conscious about your teeth, or just want to improve your smile? Cosmetic dental treatments may be the answer to a more beautiful, confident smile.
Cosmetic dentistry has become exceedingly popular in the last several years. This is not only due to the many advances in cosmetic dental procedures and modern materials available, but also because patients are becoming more focused on improving their overall health.
Improved dental health includes dental prevention, and makes for healthier, whiter, more radiant smiles. There are many cosmetic dental procedures available to improve your teeth and enhance your smile.
Depending on your particular needs, cosmetic dental treatments can change your smile dramatically, from restoring a single tooth to having a full mouth makeover.
Teeth whitening: Bleaching lightens teeth that have been stained or discolored by age, food, drink, and smoking.
Teeth darkened as a result of injury or taking certain medications can also be bleached. The effectiveness depends on the degree of staining present.
Composite (tooth-colored) fillings: Composite fillings, also known as bonding, are widely used instead of amalgam (silver) fillings to repair teeth with cavities, and also to replace old defective fillings.
Tooth-colored fillings are also used to repair chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. This type of filling is also very useful to fill gaps and protect sensitive, exposed root surfaces caused by gum recession.
Porcelain veneers: Veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded on to the fronts of teeth to create a beautiful individual smile.
Veneers can help restore or camouflage damaged, discolored, poorly shaped, or misaligned teeth. Unlike crowns, veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed from the surface of the tooth.
Porcelain crowns (caps): A crown is a tooth-colored, custom-made covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size.
Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. They are ideal for teeth that have large, fractured, or broken fillings, and also for those that are badly decayed.
Dental implants: Dental implants are artificial roots that are surgically placed into the jaw to replace one or more missing teeth. Porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures can be made specifically to fit and attach to implants.
Dental implants give a strong, stable, durable solution to removable dental appliances.
Orthodontics: Less visible and more effective brackets and wires are making straightening teeth with orthodontics much more appealing to adult patients.
In some cases, teeth may be straightened with custom-made, clear, removable aligners that require no braces.
