Cosmetic dentistry has witnessed a sudden rise in recent years. As the name suggests, cosmetic dental procedures are dedicated to improving your aesthetic appearance. It is done by addressing several problems like chipped teeth, broken teeth, stained teeth, and gaps between your teeth and giving you a desirable smile.
What are the Different Cosmetic Dental Treatments?
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening involves removing the build-up of plaque, tartar, and other substances from the surface of your teeth and restoring their natural color. We apply a hydrogen peroxide gel on your teeth, keep it for some time and then remove it.
If the stains on your teeth are too aggressive, we use a laser so that they absorb the application of the gel even better and give efficient results. We will also give you whitening trays that you may take home and regularly use to maintain your pearly white smile.
Dental veneers are thin, wafer-like shells that we place on the front surface of your teeth to treat cosmetic concerns like gaps between the teeth, slightly chipped or fractured teeth, severely discolored teeth, etc.
We use porcelain veneers to cover your teeth. If maintained properly, they last for many years. Veneers are customized according to the shape and structure of your teeth and made to match the remaining ones.
Implants are both a restorative and cosmetic treatment that you may opt to improve your smile and tooth functionality. An implant acts as an artificial tooth root for your missing teeth. Made using titanium studs, we place them into your jawbone at the location of your missing teeth. They also become a foundation for your artificial teeth, namely dental crowns or bridges.
Under this treatment, we shape your teeth by filing or removing some part of the enamel. The process is not painful, and the results are immediate.
Bonding is the process where we use tooth-colored material and bond them to your chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. The materials used for the bonding process include dental-grade resin, ceramic, porcelain, etc.
Primarily an orthodontic treatment, Invisalign also helps to improve your aesthetic appearance by treating your misaligned teeth. Crooked or misaligned teeth affect both your tooth functionality and smile. Invisalign are clear aligners that put slight pressure on your teeth to shift them to a desirable position. They have become a better alternative to traditional metal braces.
