Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments That Ensure a Great Smile

Cosmetic dentistry covers every dental procedure done to enhance the appearance of the smile. Although most cosmetic dental procedures are not essential for dental health, they can help give your teeth a better appearance and boost self-esteem and confidence.

From teeth whitening to dental crowns and fillings, cosmetic dentists are experts at giving you a smile to be proud of. Although most cosmetic dentistry procedures are easy and straightforward, some are complex and require multiple sessions to complete. If the teeth get discolored, stained, misaligned, chipped or broken, cosmetic dentistry can help correct these issues.

Cosmetic dentistry treatment

Cosmetic dental procedures are sometimes combined to achieve drastic results. The dentist will evaluate the patient’s mouth and teeth and develop a treatment plan that will produce the best cosmetic results. The following are common treatments in cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth whitening

Different methods are available for whitening the teeth, but the most effective way to get rid of the tough stains and discoloration is with an in-office teeth whitening. The process is handled by a professional dentist and produces more durable results. The dentist can also provide at-home whitening kits.

Orthodontic treatment

This treatment is done to correct teeth crookedness and misalignment. Orthodontics can improve overall oral health and make the smile more attractive. Available options include braces and clear aligners such as Invisalign.

Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of resin or porcelain material, created to cover the front surface of the tooth. They look like natural teeth and are used to mask imperfections. They can help transform the shape, color, length, size of the teeth.

Dental crowns

Crowns are created to restore severely decayed or damaged teeth. Crowns are mostly used to strengthen a tooth with a large cavity. Placing a crown on the tooth prevents further damages and increases its durability. Dental crowns used in cosmetic dentistry are usually made from ceramic or porcelain because they can be customized to match the rest of the teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings

These fillings are used for cavities and blend right in with the remaining teeth. They are preferable over amalgam and gold fillings because of their appearance.

Dental implants

Implants are stable and reliable long-lasting restorations for a lost tooth. They look and function like natural teeth and allow people with missing teeth to function as if nothing ever happened. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that sits in the jawbone, an abutment and a prosthetic crown.

Inlays and onlays

These fillings are created from composite resin or porcelain material to repair a damaged or decaying tooth. They are the conservative alternative to dental crowns. They strengthen teeth with large fillings to prevent further damages. Inlays are bonded to the center of the tooth, while onlays are placed on the biting area of the tooth.

Final note

If you wish to improve the appearance of your smile, a professional dentist can give you the smile of your dreams with cosmetic dentistry.
