Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental treatment that improves the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and bite. This treatment can help patients gain a more attractive smile, which can help them feel more confident in their day-to-day life. When most people hear the phrase "cosmetic dentistry," they think of teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. These are definitely some of the effective treatments we offer, but cosmetic dentistry provides much more.
Cosmetic dentistry isn't just about improving the aesthetics of your smile. By improving your smile's appearance, you are also improving your oral health.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of ways to improve your smile's appearance and make you look younger, such as:
Dental crowns are caps that fit over teeth. Crowns cover and protect teeth, and can also be used to fix broken teeth, gaps between teeth, and worn down teeth.
To replace one or more missing teeth, our dentist may fit you with a bridge. A dental bridge is made up of two dental crowns, one on each side of the gap. The crowns fit over existing teeth to support the new bridge or artificial tooth.
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth. The implant is made of a titanium screw that's implanted into the jaw bone. This screw will fuse with the jaw bone, forming a strong base for the dental implant. Once the implant fuses with the jaw bone, a custom dental crown is attached to complete the dental implant.
Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. They're sturdy, durable, and look and function just like natural teeth.
Whitening procedures are done at home or in a dental office. In-office whitening procedures use a stronger gel with a lamp or laser light to activate the gel. Both in-office and take-home whitening procedures use peroxide-based gels to remove staining and return your teeth to their natural shade.
Teeth whitening can make teeth up to ten shades brighter. Whiter teeth help a patient's smile look more youthful and attractive. In-office teeth whitening procedures are one of the fastest and safest ways to get teeth whitened.
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are bonded directly onto the front surface of the teeth. These restorations can improve the appearance of teeth that are significantly discolored, cracked, chipped, or misaligned.
