Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to elective procedures that focus on improving the appearance of a patient's teeth, gums, and/or bite. They also refer to a variety of dental treatments that improve the aesthetics of your smile while also helping you better care for your oral health.
These treatments include:
Professional teeth whitening, provided by a dentist, is the most effective method for whitening your teeth. Dentists have access to professional-grade whitening products and can use them safely and effectively to whiten your teeth.
In addition to achieving better results, professional whitening is also safer for your teeth. It is also more effective than at-home whitening options. This is because dentists use stronger whitening products than what you can purchase over-the-counter. These products are also not available in gel form, so they are safer for your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can be used to change the color, shape, and size of your teeth to give you the beautiful, flawless smile you've always wanted. They are extremely versatile, and treatment can be completed in as little as two visits to the dentist. Once it's determined that you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers, your dentist will take a mold of your teeth. This mold is then used to create custom veneers that perfectly match your smile. The veneers are then bonded to the front of your teeth.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that uses a tooth-colored resin to repair teeth. The resin is molded to fit the shape of the tooth and bonded to the tooth using a dental adhesive. The resin is tinted to match the surrounding teeth for a natural appearance.
Porcelain dental crowns are a common cosmetic dental procedure. These custom, tooth-shaped coverings fit over damaged teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance.
A dental bridge is a restoration that replaces a missing tooth. The bridge is held in place using dental crowns on either side of the existing teeth. The bridge can be made from gold, metal, or porcelain.
Dental bridges are most commonly used to replace missing teeth in the front of the mouth.
