For patients who aren’t comfortable with the appearance of their smile, cosmetic dental treatments can help to improve their appearance. A variety of techniques can be used to improve the appearance of the teeth. By improving the aesthetic quality of your teeth, you can improve your overall confidence. Patients can also benefit from different treatments that strengthen damaged teeth, replace missing teeth, and treat discolored or stained teeth. In some cases, patients might benefit from a combination of these procedures to achieve a beautiful smile.
Here are some of the common cosmetic dentistry treatments:
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain that can be bonded to the front of teeth to create a more aesthetic appearance for your smile. They can fix a number of minor cosmetic issues, such as chipped or cracked teeth, uneven spacing between your teeth, stained teeth, and much more. If you have multiple cosmetic imperfections that you would like to address at once, then porcelain veneers may be the perfect option for you!
Dental bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored resin is applied to teeth to cover up chips, cracks, or other imperfections. The composite resin is bonded to the tooth using a curing light. This treatment can be used to treat minor tooth decay or cavities, chipped or broken teeth, and worn-down enamel. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile!
Dental crowns are restorations designed to restore the function and appearance of a tooth. They are commonly placed after a root canal or after a large cavity is removed to protect the remaining healthy tooth structure. A porcelain crown is custom-created for your tooth using impressions taken of the treated tooth, as well as the surrounding teeth, to provide proper fit and bite alignment. The process typically takes two appointments to complete because the crown must be molded at a dental lab and then cemented in place at the second appointment. Once completed, the final restoration will be indistinguishable from the natural teeth around it!
A dental bridge is a restoration used to close gaps between teeth. The bridge is anchored to surrounding teeth for support, and a false tooth or teeth are suspended between the anchor teeth. Bridges are an excellent alternative to crowns because less of your natural tooth structure is removed during the treatment process. However, bridges are not permanent restorations and must be removed from your mouth and replaced every few years. There are several types of dental bridges to choose from, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded bridges. Your dentist will recommend the most appropriate type of bridge for your individual needs and preferences.
