Everyone deserves a smile that makes them feel confident. Unfortunately, not everybody is born with perfect teeth. With the help of cosmetic dentistry, crooked, cracked and dull smiles can all be improved. Here are just a few of the ways cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile of your dreams.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that attach to the front of a patient’s teeth. These porcelain veneers are custom-made in order to fit each tooth perfectly and look extremely natural. Veneers are often used to hide gaps in teeth, cover any permanent staining and to improve misshapen teeth.
While the best outcomes of orthodontic work come from having braces at a young age, adults can still get a straighter smile with braces, too. However, thanks to advancements in orthodontics, traditional braces are no longer the only option. If you’d rather not have metal braces, Invisalign Clear Aligners are another option that provide patients with the straight teeth they’ve been wanting.
Dental crowns, also called “caps,” are placed directly onto prepared teeth and cover the entire tooth. Crowns are custom-made for each tooth to provide protection and prevent further breakage. While crowns are most often used to restore tooth integrity and stop bacteria from entering into the tooth, they can also improve the appearance of heavily damaged or discolored teeth.
Maintaining a white smile requires a lot of upkeep and a lot of time. While there are many do-it-yourself whitening solutions that can be done at home, these products often leave you with temporary results that just aren’t as white as promised. Professional teeth whitening provides the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time.
Bonding is a process in which the dentist uses tooth-colored bonding material to fill gaps or chips in your teeth. During this process, your natural tooth enamel is fused with the bonding material to create a durable structure that can last for several years. The bonding procedure can often be completed in just one office visit, which makes it great for those who want fast results.
