Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile. These procedures range from basic teeth whitening to more involved procedures like veneers or dental implants. Most procedures can be performed quickly and with no recovery time, making them popular among busy individuals.
Cosmetic dentistry is designed to beautify your smile. There are many different types of cosmetic dental procedures that can improve the aesthetics of your smile. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures have been listed below.
When patients have chipped, cracked, gapped, or discolored teeth, they can use porcelain veneers for cosmetic dental procedures. These thin shells are bonded to the front of teeth to hide imperfections, and patients can choose from various colors to enhance their smiles. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, and patients can maintain them with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits.
A dental implant is a minor, screw-like dental restoration that replaces a missing tooth. The implant is placed within the jawbone during a minor oral surgery procedure. It fuses to the bone and becomes a permanent part of the mouth. Once healed, a crown is placed on the implant to replace the missing tooth. Implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. Over-the-counter products are available, but these products can be harsh and abrasive. They may also cause tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. A dentist can prescribe a professional-strength whitening product that is safe for teeth and gums. The dentist can also perform treatment in the office, completing it in one visit.
Dental bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin material to teeth to improve their shape, color, and appearance. Dental bonding is used to fix small chips or cracks in teeth, correct gaps in teeth, and cover up stains or discoloration.
