A Guide To The Different Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry procedures broadly refer to those dental works that aim to improve the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite to enhance overall facial aesthetics. We primarily focus on improving color, position, shape, size and alignment to complement your facial harmony. 

Your smile is one facial feature that attracts immediate attention. Maintaining your teeth and gums will not only put a broad smile on your face but also improve your overall appearance.

Some of the common cosmetic dentistry procedures are:

Veneers

Veneers function as a new front surface, which is fitted over your original set of teeth. They are usually made from ceramic or porcelain and are an ideal option for anyone who has chipped, broken, discolored, or uneven teeth. 

Veneers have to be individualized for each client because it acts as a newer outer covering for the teeth, and each person has a unique set of teeth. 

Composite Bonding

In this dental procedure a composite resin is added to the edges of your teeth. This procedure is used for the correction of chipped, discolored and gapped teeth. In some cases, the procedure is also carried out to repair decayed or damaged teeth. 

This cosmetic dental procedure is relatively easy and quick; the entire procedure can be completed in about 30 minutes to an hour. 

Teeth Whitening

Engaging in an unhealthy lifestyle of smoking and recreational drinking can make your teeth prone to discoloration. But as you age so do your teeth, and they consequently wear out. Your teeth could be stained from a range of natural and artificial material, such as your everyday tomato and soft drinks. 

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure, which can be completed with ease. Make sure to get your teeth whitened from a professional, as they are the best fit to carry out the procedure.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are primarily used to cap damaged teeth and preserve their functionality. Crowns can be made from several different materials, such as gold, porcelain fused to metal, or all-ceramic porcelain.

Even though metal and gold crowns are used, porcelain crowns closely resemble the natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are lighter when compared to other dental crowns and they also have good durability.  

Dental Implants

Implants are used to replace missing teeth. People can lose their permanent teeth due to several reasons. Some of these reasons include physical injuries, weak teeth and tooth decay. A missing tooth can seriously impact a person’s self-esteem and willingness to smile.

In this procedure we will insert a small titanium screw into your jaw where the tooth is missing. This tiny screw will then serve as support for your implant. Once the supporting tissue and bone fuse to the implant, the tooth is permanently fixed into place. The only duty of the patient is to engage in rigorous oral hygiene to ensure that there is no residue or debris in the space with the missing teeth. 

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are like any other dental procedure. Dental clinics and specialists aim to provide an aesthetically appealing smile. Most of the cosmetic procedures are quick and uncomplicated; this makes achieving your perfect smile easy and convenient. Results are often reaped immediately or rapidly. The ultimate goal is to ensure you keep smiling!
