Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Here are available treatment options when you visit our cosmetic dentist:
Also referred to as bleaching, teeth whitening is a simple and quick way to improve your teeth’s appearance and change your smile. The procedure is an excellent choice when teeth yellow due to aging, you want to have a lighter shade than the original color, or your teeth become stained from food, drinks, medication, or habits like smoking. Since not everyone’s teeth can be bleached, you should consult a cosmetic dentist first.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells made out of porcelain or composite material. They are cemented to each tooth’s front side using a dental adhesive. Veneers are designed to treat a wide range of dental conditions, including discolored teeth that will not whiten with bleaching, slightly crooked teeth, chipped teeth, and noticeable spaces between teeth. A cosmetic dentist will do an accurate impression of your teeth and send it to the lab for custom veneers.
Cosmetic bonding is a procedure used to repair or improve the appearance of decayed, discolored, or damaged teeth. During treatment, your dentist will drill out the tooth decay and then apply composite material that resembles the color of tooth enamel. The moldable material is sculpted into the desired shape and hardened and bonded to the tooth using ultraviolet or laser light. Bonding covers the damaged surface, providing the appearance of a healthy tooth.
Additional Dentistry Procedures
A dental implant is a device used to replace a missing or damaged tooth. Your cosmetic dentist will surgically place a small titanium screw in the bone socket of the missing tooth to serve as the root and support the crown placed on the top. The implant will be similar to and function much like your natural teeth and will be permanently secured into place when the jawbone heals and fuses with the implanted metal.
A dental crown is a prosthetic cap placed on top of a decayed or damaged tooth. Dental crowns are made from different materials such as porcelain, acrylic, or metal. Dental crowns are custom made to ensure they fit perfectly over the whole tooth and help restore the shape, strength, size, and appearance of teeth. A cosmetic dentist can also use crowns to hold a cracked tooth together and prevent a weak one from breaking.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to treat mild or moderate decay where the tooth structure cannot adequately support a filling. The cosmetic dentist will mold the fillings into place, but the onlays and inlays will be made in a dental laboratory. An inlay refers to when the material fills the area between the cusps, while an onlay is when the material covers the tooth’s biting surface.
