Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of options to address whatever issues you might have with your teeth. A consultation with your cosmetic dentist will help you determine what procedure or procedures might be most appropriate for you to meet your goals. Some common and popular procedures include:
- Veneers – These porcelain shells are affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth to correct a wide range of problems, from pitting and cracks to severe discoloration.
- Teeth Whitening – Whitening uses strong bleaching agents to remove discoloration from tooth surfaces.
- Bonding – Bonding can reshape asymmetrical or misshapen teeth.
- Dental Implants – Implants are a natural-looking and long lasting way to replace missing teeth.
You and your dentist might decide to use one or more of these treatments to give you the best possible results. You’ll be able to smile with confidence after your treatment.
If you have always been self-conscious about your smile, or if you’ve recently experienced damage, tooth loss, or increased discoloration, you’re probably a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Depending upon what you would like to have done, you might need to be evaluated to be sure you are a good candidate. For example, if you wish to have dental implants, you are more likely to have a successful surgery if you are in overall good health and do not smoke. Tooth whitening works on external staining but is less likely to work on staining caused by trauma or by exposure to certain drugs or to fluoride.
