Cosmetic Dentistry has changed the definition of dental visits for everyone. Gone are the days you would schedule an appointment with us only for restorative procedures like missing teeth, misshapen or damaged teeth, or periodontal disease. Cosmetic dental procedures have given a new dimension to the field of dentistry. While traditional dentistry is all about addressing the health of your gums and teeth, cosmetic dental procedures are driven towards enhancing the appearance of your gums, teeth, and smile.
Some cosmetic dental procedures like implants also help to restore your tooth functionality. Schedule an appointment with us, and we will ensure you step out of our dental practice with a dazzling smile.
What are the Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures?
- Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure of all. You may get rid of all kinds of stains from your teeth, thus restoring your pearly white smile. It includes the application of hydrogen peroxide gel on the surface of your teeth. We will rinse it after a while. Sometimes, we may also use a laser to offer a better absorption of the gel on your teeth.
- Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding improves the appearance of your chipped, broken, cracked, and stained teeth. We use a tooth-colored bonding material matching the appearance of your natural teeth.
- Dental Veneers
Veneers are considered a gold standard in cosmetic dentistry. They are a solution to your multiple cosmetic problems like chipped, cracked, broken, and gapped teeth. Dental veneers also cover your severely discolored teeth, thus offering you a desirable smile. They are made in various materials, porcelain veneers being the most sought-after option. If taken care of properly, dental veneers may last for 10-15 years.
- Tooth Reshaping
The procedure involves changing the shape and structure of your teeth to enhance their appearance. We perform tooth reshaping by modifying or removing your enamel. Also known as dental contouring, this treatment is combined with bonding to offer better results.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants are a restorative procedure for missing teeth, which also improve the appearance of your smile. Implants are artificial tooth roots made using titanium we attach to your jawbone. Once healed, it becomes a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
After placing the implant into your jawbone and giving it enough time to heal, we will complete the restoration with dental crowns.
- Crown Lengthening
You may fix your gummy smile with a crown lengthening procedure. Also known as gum contouring, the procedure involves removing excess gum tissues and exposing more of your teeth’ crown.
