Cosmetic dentistry refers to any type of dental work that’s done to alter the appearance of the teeth, instead of the functionality. Teeth, gums, and bite can all be improved with cosmetic dentistry. If you want a new smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. Think you can’t have your dream smile? Think again.
Misaligned, chipped, or cracked teeth can all be improved by bonding. Bonding is also used in filling cavities A quick and painless procedure, your smile can be restored in a matter of minutes. In the bonding process, a thin coat of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth. The bonding is strengthened with a curing light, then shaped so it’s virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
A crown can be installed to perform several different functions, and are one of the most common procedures in dentistry. The damaged tooth is reshaped to fit the crown, which acts as a cap to that damaged tooth. Crowns help restore appearance, functionality, strength, and shape of the teeth. They are also integral in upholding the structure of your entire bite.
Also called composite resins, tooth-colored fillings are the modern-day answer to ugly metal in your teeth. These fillings are made of a blend of silica and plastic resins that mimic the look and feel of a natural tooth. After removing the cavity, the resin bonds to the tooth and is shaped to fit perfectly with your bite.
Veneers are thin porcelain covers that can be placed over the front of the teeth. They’re used to treat teeth that are worn, chipped, crooked, or uneven. Strong, long-lasting, and natural, they’re customizable to each and every person. Veneers can give you a full smile makeover, or just help repair certain individual teeth in need of cosmetic dentistry.
