What to do when your teeth are stained, discolored, chipped, broken, or have a gap between them? How do you change your overall smile appearance? Modern cosmetic dentistry will give you a better smile.
Also known as aesthetic dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry specializing in dental treatments and procedures used to improve the appearance of teeth — color, position, size, shape, alignment, and overall smile.
A cosmetic dentist is responsible for a variety of procedures, from minor to major surgeries.
Teeth whitening is the simplest way to improve a smile. A professional dentist cleans the teeth using cleaning tools that remove discolorations and stains from them.
Dental Crowns are used to replace damaged or decayed teeth above the gum and help to restore the appearance. A crown can hold cracked and broken teeth together. These crowns are made from metal, porcelain, resin, or ceramic.
During this procedure, tooth-colored durable plastic material is applied to the tooth and hardened by using ultraviolet or laser light on it to bond the material to the tooth. Then, the dentist shapes and polishes it. Tooth reshaping removes the damaged or misshapen part of the enamel to improve the appearance of teeth. The procedure offers a fast result and is a good substitute for braces.
Implants are made of titanium and are inserted and allowed to graft into the bone socket of missing teeth to provide a foundation for replacement teeth.
These fillings are made of gold, porcelain, or composite material used to fill damaged teeth.
Veneers help to keep the color and shape of a tooth. They are more expensive but are a viable alternative to crowns.
A gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure that races and sculpts the gum line. It involves reshaping the tissue and underlying bones to create more symmetrical teeth.
Through these treatments, advanced dental technology provides good-looking teeth that will enhance your oral health.
