Cosmetic dentistry is a way of achieving and maintaining a beautiful smile. This type of dental care can be done along with preventive and restorative care. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to help you enjoy a great-looking smile and healthy teeth.
Teeth bleaching is a popular cosmetic dental service. It involves the removal of yellowish stains from your teeth by applying a gel bleaching product directly onto the enamel. Your dentist can do a tooth bleaching procedure in a 60-minute office visit. It takes one to four visits to achieve a whiter smile.
If your teeth are unevenly shaped, contouring can help to smooth their appearance. To contour a tooth, the dentist uses small buffers to gradually reshape their edges. Small chips or uneven wear can be fixed through contouring.
If your teeth cannot be whitened through bleaching, veneers may be an option. Veneers can also be used to fix cosmetic issues such as gaps between your teeth. Veneers are custom-made for you and are created from thin porcelain shells dyed to match your other teeth.
Fillings and Crowns
If you need a filling or crown to restore an area of decay or a chipped or broken tooth, you could consider a tooth-colored filling or crown. These restorations are considered both functional and cosmetic. They are made from a composite resin mixture that is colored by your dentist to match the shade of your other teeth. Once the filling or crown is placed onto your tooth, it will blend in and not be noticeable when you smile, laugh, or talk.
