Cosmetic dentistry is any dental service that improves the appearance of a patient’s smile. These services can be stand-alone treatments or part of a full mouth reconstruction. Common cosmetic services are:
Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front of the teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers can correct the appearance of chips, cracks, and discoloration. They also can be used to correct minor misalignment.
With so many over-the-counter and whitening products on the market today, it’s difficult to make a choice. Visiting our cosmetic dentist for a professional whitening treatment is the best option.
Dental bonding is a treatment in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to a tooth to improve its appearance. The resin is bonded to the tooth, and the material hardens to create an enamel-like surface. The resin material is matched to your tooth color, so it looks natural.
Bonding can repair minor cosmetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, and discoloration. It can also be used to conceal gaps between teeth.
Dental implants are the closest alternative to your natural teeth. These titanium posts replace the tooth root and can support a crown, bridge, or full or partial denture. Implants can give you back a complete smile that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth.
There are several different types of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can be combined for a smile makeover. A smile makeover can address stained, chipped, cracked, and gapped teeth.
Dental crowns are a common cosmetic dentistry treatment. They are used to repair severely damaged and decayed teeth. They cover the entire tooth above the gum line and can be made from a number of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and porcelain-fused-to-metal.
Dental crowns restore a damaged tooth, improving its appearance and function.
A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is comprised of two dental crowns attached to one or more false teeth or pontics. The dental crowns are then bonded to the natural teeth on either side of the gap, called abutment teeth, to anchor the bridge in place.
A dental bridge can help prevent the teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile from shifting and can also help restore your bite.
