What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry involves procedures that primarily concentrate on enhancing the appearance and aesthetics of the teeth, gums, and the smile of the patient. It includes treatment options like teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, etc., to name a few. Most cosmetic dentistry procedures focus on enhancing the aesthetics of the teeth, while some of them also help to restore the teeth or their functionality.
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
When you visit us for cosmetic dentistry treatments, our dental team will work with you, assess your mouth and teeth, and discuss your needs to customize your treatment plan. Here are the cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you transform your smiles:
One of the popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, professional teeth whitening procedures, involves a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums to eliminate plaque or tartar and dental stains and using a whitening solution to enhance the color of the teeth.
The gap created by missing teeth can be a huge letdown for people, affecting their confidence. Among the various tooth replacement options available, dental implants are one of the superior choices as they are long-lasting, strong, and closely resemble natural teeth.
If you have a tooth with extensive damage or decay, broken tooth, or a tooth that needs structural support after a root canal procedure, crowns can be placed over its top to cover it to hide its imperfections or save the tooth.
Bridges are dental restorations that close the gaps in the smile created by missing teeth. They are false teeth, also called pontic, fitted in position by the abutment teeth or crowns on either side. They can be customized to resemble natural teeth.
Dental veneers are porcelain laminates that cover the front part of chipped, stained, or broken teeth to cover imperfections, resulting in a more beautiful smile.
One of the most basic dental restorations, porcelain fillings, are helpful in repairing dental cavities developed due to tooth decay. Besides, fillings are also used to restore cracked or chipped teeth.
Inlays are dental restorations that are fabricated to fill the cavities that are too large for fillings. They are manufactured to perfectly fit the cavity's contour. Onlays, also known as 'half-crowns,' are used to cover the cusp of the tooth to fix its worn-out surface.
