Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dental treatment that is focused on improving the appearance of a patient’s smile. Patients who have undergone cosmetic dentistry procedures enjoy a boost in their self-confidence and self-esteem.
Some most common cosmetic dentistry treatments are:
Teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. There are two main ways of whitening your teeth, i.e., at-home teeth whitening and in-office teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening or in-office teeth whitening can give you the smile you desire in the fastest and most effective way. It is much safer than other teeth whitening options.
Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry procedure that can completely transform the appearance of your smile. If you have teeth that are poorly shaped, uneven or discolored, then veneers may be right for you. Veneers are also considered a more conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure than crowns, which makes them a popular option for many dental patients.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that can improve the appearance of teeth. Your dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin material to your teeth. The material will then be molded and shaped. Your dentist will use ultraviolet light to harden the material. The entire process can be completed in as little as one appointment.
Dental implants are an excellent option for patients who do not qualify for traditional dentures. Whether a patient is missing just one tooth or an entire row of teeth, dental implants are a permanent solution.
Porcelain crowns cover an entire tooth above the gum line. They are used to fix teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken. A crown can be made of several different materials, such as metal, ceramic, resin, or porcelain.
Contouring can reshape the gum line, improving the appearance of your smile. This is done when too much gum tissue is visible when you smile. The excess tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue is shaped and contoured. In the case of gum recession, the tissue is reshaped and repositioned to prevent shrinkage.
One of the cosmetic dental treatments that we offer is jaw reshaping. This treatment involves removing some of the bone from your jaw, which changes the shape of your face. This treatment reduces a square-shaped jaw into a more oval-shaped one.
This treatment is also called orthognathic surgery.
A smile makeover is a personalized combination of cosmetic dental procedures aimed at improving the appearance of your smile. Smile makeovers typically include teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns.
