Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry that seeks to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, or bite. It can be for cosmetic reasons alone or to improve the function of your teeth if you have crooked teeth or a bad bite.
Standard procedures include veneers, crowns, and teeth whitening. Veneers cover the surface of the teeth and are used to correct chips, cracks, misalignments, and other aesthetic issues. Crowns are caps that cover a tooth to restore its function and appearance. Teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth, so they look whiter and brighter.
Why Should You Choose Cosmetic Dentistry?
With cosmetic dentistry, we can help you improve your smile and restore your confidence! Since we primarily offer procedures that improve your oral health, we will recommend other services as needed. For example, if you have a problem with how your teeth come together when you close your mouth, it could cause TMJ disorder. In this case, we may suggest orthodontics to correct your bite before doing any cosmetic work.
Although cosmetic dentistry is elective, some procedures are medically necessary. If your teeth are damaged due to a cavity, crack, or other causes, we may need to fill your tooth to protect it from further harm. Fillings and crowns are designed to restore your tooth’s appearance and structure after decay or damage. When done right, cosmetic dentistry can give you the beautiful smile you always wanted.
Many patients avoid the dentist because of fear or anxiety, but these problems can be addressed by non-invasive treatment options. Cosmetic dentistry can help patients who don’t feel comfortable smiling or speaking in front of others due to cracked, fractured, or chipped teeth. Also, if needed, we will administer the proper sedatives to help you relax during the procedure and get the necessary treatment done.
Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Cosmetic bonding: Bonding is the process of applying a composite resin on the teeth near areas where they have seen significant wear, cracks, exposed root surfaces, etc.
Teeth whitening: Whitening is the application of dental bleach to the teeth surfaces to get rid of stains. It is a non-invasive procedure that can be completed quickly.
Veneers: Veneers are custom-fabricated dental restorations that are bonded to the frontal surface of the teeth that need a cosmetic makeover.
Crowns: Crowns are one of the most popular dental restorations used for cosmetic and restorative purposes. They cover the entire outer surface of the teeth and help to treat issues like cracked, broken, and worn-out teeth.
