Putting off going to the dentist is tempting, especially if you have previously been told that you need to correct a costly dental problem. While the costs are a nuisance,...
Cosmetic dentistry offers patients with an imperfect smile the ability to improve the position, shape, size, and color of their teeth every day. These treatments can range from relatively subtle to a complete smile makeover in as little as one appointment.
Whether you’re looking to correct a minor issue or to transform your overall appearance, these six cosmetic dentistry treatments will transform your smile.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are many reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry. After all, your smile is the first thing others will notice about you during initial interactions, and when you are in a public setting. The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics found that those with an ideal smile were considered more intelligent and had a higher chance of being hired during job interviews. Additionally, cosmetic dentistry can also provide several health benefits, including enhanced alignment, improved oral health, and even better overall health.
Custom CEREC dental crowns are typically made of a solid block of ceramic or resin material. One of the most significant benefits of a CEREC crown is that this type of crown can be made within a single visit. Same-day crowns allow for the elimination of temporary crowns and multiple office visits. By utilizing computer imaging technology, CEREC crowns allow for your new tooth to blend perfectly with the rest of your smile. Additionally, this type of crown is often stronger than other crown options.
Minor dental issues, including dark-stained teeth, unwanted spaces, or chips, can all be addressed with dental bonding. Bonding is the ultimate solution for minor cosmetic issues. Your dentist can quickly and efficiently make adjustments to a tooth to regain any lost confidence in your smile.
Bright Smile Whitening
Eating and drinking certain foods that are dark in color are known to leave unwanted stains behind on your smile. Antibiotics and tobacco use are also leading causes of tooth discoloration. In less than an hour, Bright Smile Whitening treatments can brighten your dull, stained smile and restore your confidence.
Moderate aesthetic issues that can’t be corrected with dental bonding often require veneers. Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive way to correct imperfections while giving you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Your teeth can be reshaped entirely and brightened all while keeping the natural structure untouched. Designed to look just like your natural teeth, veneers are applied to the front of your teeth using a dental resin.
A dental bridge replaces missing or damaged teeth by hiding the gaps. This type of device improves the appearance of your teeth and prevents other dental issues often caused by a missing tooth.
Missing one or more permanent teeth requires a long-term solution. A dental implant is the only tooth replacement option that is designed to look and function like a natural tooth. Implants are impossible to differentiate from surrounding natural teeth, and unlike dentures or bridges, they are permanently secured into place. Your smile can be entirely restored cosmetically and functionally with dental implants.
