A cosmetic dental procedure focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dental procedures include teeth whitening, dental bonding, dental crowns, porcelain veneers, tooth contouring, gum contouring, tooth reshaping, all-on-4® dental implants, Invisalign®, etc.
Your dentist takes into consideration your facial appearance when assessing your smile. Some patients, for example, have teeth that are too small for their face. Others may have poorly aligned teeth, while others may have teeth that are very discolored from years of smoking. All of these issues are addressed with cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic procedures can improve both the health and appearance of your smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells made of dental-grade porcelain. They are custom-made to seamlessly cover the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great option if you want to improve the appearance of your smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are permanent teeth replacements that are anchored into the jawbone. They are a great option for people who have lost their teeth due to decay, injury, or gum disease. The implant itself is a small titanium screw. After it is placed, it will fuse to the jawbone, creating a permanent foundation for the replacement tooth. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a post is attached. This post will hold the replacement tooth in place. Dental implants are essentially replacement “teeth roots.” Once in place, they provide the solid foundation you need to enjoy a complete smile.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discoloration from the teeth. Discoloration can happen as a result of aging, consuming certain foods or beverages, or tobacco use. There are many options when it comes to teeth whitening. Our dentists can recommend the best treatment for you.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns, sometimes called caps, are tooth-shaped prosthetics that cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above your gum line. They are usually made of porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Crowns are typically used to restore damaged teeth, but they can also improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen or discolored. They’re often used on the front teeth but can also be placed on the back teeth.
What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge is a restoration used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge uses the surrounding teeth for support, which are called abutments. The dentist will reshape the abutment teeth so that the bridge can be attached.
