Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
This process, otherwise known as teeth bleaching, is applied in order to whiten and brighten teeth from discoloration and staining and is easily performed at a dental office. Consult with your dentist to find out if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Veneers are slim shells that are constructed out of porcelain or composite substances. These overlays are made to order for the individual client and then cemented onto the front portion of the particular tooth. Veneers are ideal for correcting teeth that are marginally crooked, chipped, and discolored. Veneers may also be utilized to hide unsightly spaces in between the teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Implants
Dental implants are metal implements that are constructed to take the place of missing teeth. They are commonly fabricated out of titanium and are surgically inserted into a patient’s jawbone where a tooth is absent. Implants are formulated to mimic the root of a tooth and are capable of anchoring artificial teeth including crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Crowns, sometimes called caps, are made to fit over the entire tooth after the cosmetic dentist has prepared it. Crowns are custom-made and manufactured out of acrylic or porcelain. The structures are joined to metal that can remain undamaged from biting pressure. Crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry in order to fix poorly formed, broken, chipped, and deteriorated teeth. They are also utilized to cover sizable fillings and gaps in between the teeth.
Cosmetic Teeth Shaping
Also called enamel shaping, a dentist is capable of altering the shape of a tooth by filing it down or removing a portion of its enamel. Teeth shaping yields instant results and does not typically cause the client any pain.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
The bonding process involves tooth-colored materials actually being bonded or affixed to the tooth. This specific procedure is often used to rectify or improve the appearance of extremely stained, broken, or chipped teeth.
Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatments are beneficial for people of all ages. There are plenty of adults that are undergoing treatment from orthodontists in order to reap cosmetic advantages. Both buck teeth and crooked teeth can be fixed so that patients can smile with confidence thanks to beautiful teeth. Speak with your dentist about seeing an orthodontist.
