Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that cover a tooth's front surface to conceal cosmetic issues. They can close gaps between teeth; mask chips, cracks, and stains; whiten discolored teeth; and even straighten slightly crooked teeth! Because they are made of stain-resistant porcelain, they are durable enough to withstand normal wear and tear.
Teeth whitening can help patients address various aesthetic concerns, such as discoloration and staining from certain medications or smoking habits. As stained teeth could also affect your confidence and make you want to hide your smile, teeth whitening can help you recover your confidence. Many patients who feel embarrassed about the appearance of their teeth choose teeth whitening as a way to improve their confidence and self-esteem.
This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth, which is then bonded to the tooth's surface. Composite bonding is used to repair chipped teeth or improve the appearance of discolored teeth. It can also be used to close small gaps between teeth.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are many benefits to cosmetic dentistry, including an improved appearance and improved self-confidence.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and if you’re embarrassed by an imperfect smile, it can impact your personal and professional life. A beautiful smile can positively affect your confidence at work and personal life.
Cosmetic dentistry can also improve dental health by closing gaps between teeth or covering worn enamel, which may lead to future dental problems if left untreated. When your teeth are correctly aligned, they are easier to clean and floss, which reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Many cosmetic procedures are simple and quick and can be completed in just one visit.
