Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of one’s teeth and gums. Some cosmetic dentistry procedures can even improve oral health. There are a number of cosmetic dental treatments available. Some treatments can be completed in one or two appointments, while others might take several visits. Consult with your dentist to discuss which option is best for you.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common and most affordable cosmetic procedures that can improve your smile and make you appear younger as well as more attractive. Many dentists offer teeth whitening options, including take-home trays and professional treatments.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. They are customized to each patient’s teeth for a natural look.
Dental veneers are stain-resistant, making them an attractive option for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile.
Dental bonding is a fast and affordable way to hide small imperfections in your teeth. The tooth-colored resin is shaped over the tooth and hardened to create a natural-looking appearance. During the procedure, one of our dentists will select a shade of composite resin that closely matches the color of your natural teeth. The resin will be shaped and molded to your teeth, and a special light will be used to harden the resin.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that replaces missing teeth. It consists of a false tooth, called a pontic, which is fused between two crowns that have been prepared on adjacent natural teeth. The crowns fit over the adjacent teeth and hold the bridge in place. The pontic fills in the gap left by a missing tooth.
Composite fillings are a common option for minor tooth decay. The attractive, tooth-colored fillings are metal-free and can help to strengthen a weakened tooth. These fillings can be used to treat cavities on the biting surfaces of molars as well as those that appear on the sides of the teeth.
Dental implant posts are like the root of a new tooth. They are replacement tooth roots that provide a foundation for dental crowns. They are often the best tooth replacement option available. They can be strong and stable enough to support a crown, bridge, or denture.
