Evenly shaped and spaced white teeth enhance your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry offers many treatment options for people who want to improve their Dental appearance. Methods can be as simple as teeth whitening or as complex as braces and bridges.
Teeth whitening products typically use peroxide to clean stains from the enamel and give your teeth a white, clean look.
Tooth-shaping is a simple procedure and doesn’t take a lot of time to accomplish. The Dentist reshapes your teeth to give them a more consistent and symmetrical appearance. The Dentist can alter the shape of one or more of your teeth or maybe shape the uppers to better match the lowers. The removal of a small amount of tooth enamel will not cause any long-term damage.
Porcelain veneers usually referred to as veneers, are porcelain slices that make your teeth look nearly perfect. They cover up damage, stains cracks and the like. Ask your Dentist about veneers it may be the best option for you.
Resins are typically used for short-term repair to improve appearance. Resins can be used to treat chips and cavities. Chips and cavities will eventually need to be treated using a long-term method. The major disadvantage of using resins is that they eventually change color and will wear down.
A bonded-bridge is typically a porcelain or resin tooth with metallic or resin attachment wings on the sides. The Dentist removes a small amount of enamel from the backside of the teeth on both the sides of the missing tooth and then the bonds the bridge to the existing teeth or it is clipped on to the adjacent teeth.
These are some of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. Ask your Dentist what is right for you.
