Do you wish you could smile without covering your mouth? What you might not realize is that not only can cosmetic dentistry improve your appearance, but it can also improve your confidence.
There are a variety of options available for cosmetic dentistry. When you visit, we will help you choose the right treatments that are suitable to achieve your desired smile.
Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can cover imperfections like chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the appearance of uneven teeth. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular types of cosmetic dentistry procedures because they look very natural and can last for many years.
Whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures, and it is quick and convenient. During your visit, your dentist will apply a whitening agent to your teeth. The agent is rinsed off after a few minutes to reveal brighter teeth.
Many patients choose in-office whitening because it can brighten teeth by several shades in just one visit. However, there are take-home kits available as well. These kits come with custom-made whitening trays.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the surface of the tooth. The resin is then shaped and polished so that the tooth looks like the surrounding teeth. Dental bonding is a quick procedure that can usually be completed in one visit.
Dental implants are the closest you can get to natural teeth. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and topped with a dental crown. You can brush and floss your dental implants just as you would your natural teeth.
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth.
A dental bridge can take the place of one to three missing teeth, helping to maintain a healthy smile. The dental bridge is made up of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth (called a pontic), which are fused together. The dental crowns are placed over your existing teeth, while the pontics take the place of your missing teeth.
