What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that takes care of the general appearance of your teeth, gums, and bite. Modern-day cosmetic dentistry can give you a great smile by correcting stained, misshapen, discolored, misaligned, chipped, broken, or worn-out teeth. The space between the teeth could also be concealed with cosmetic procedures. Through one or more cosmetic procedures, you can get the smile you have always desired.
What Are Some Common Cosmetic Procedures?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated from super-slim translucent porcelain ceramic and are cemented to the front and sides of teeth. They offer a natural look because they are color-matched with the existing teeth. Porcelain veneers can reinvigorate the appearance of crooked teeth, fix chipped and broken teeth, hide stained or discolored teeth, and bridge gaps between teeth for a more even smile.
Professional tooth whitening procedures can brighten the teeth by multiple shades. However, patients with sensitive teeth and gums or dental restorations may not be suited for this treatment. In addition, as we age, our teeth will lose their shine and look dull or yellowish. While regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene can help improve their appearance, teeth whitening is essential to remove dental stains and whiten the teeth.
Dental bonding is an affordable and quick way for patients to fix damaged and discolored teeth. This procedure is popular among younger patients who do not want a permanent restoration. Additionally, the resin composite material that is used in tooth bonding is long-lasting. Dental bonding can help treat discolored teeth, misalignment, cracked or chipped teeth, and gaps between teeth.
If the gum line is uneven, even the straightest teeth can look crooked or unequal. If you have an uneven gum line or a gummy smile caused by excess tissue, it can be removed to create a beautifully contoured smile.
Reshaping of a tooth is a cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of tiny amounts of tooth enamel to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. The procedure is usually performed to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, or even overlapping teeth.
