Bright Benefits with Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry has gained immense popularity over the years due to recent advancements in cosmetic dentistry procedures Cosmetic dentists can provide patients with a total dental makeover, fixing problems like chipped, missing, damaged, or misshapen teeth, discoloration, and gaps between teeth. Many of these procedures not only help the patient look and feel better, but also assist in treating oral issues. Cosmetic dentists are similar to a regular dentist as they have knowledge and experience with dental crowns, dentures, bridges and implants, however, they are experts in procedures like teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, bonding, teeth straightening, and restorative dentistry.
Getting your picture perfect smile
The first step to getting your smile the way you want it, is to consult with a cosmetic dentist to find out what they recommend for you and your mouth. With so many different procedures available, a consultation will help you breakdown the best options for you. One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. Almost everyone wants a bright white smile. Teeth whitening or bleaching is done to restore natural color and shine to the teeth. Over time teeth can loose their natural luster and become discolored or stained. With the use of a highly effective whitening gel and a laser, a cosmetic dentist can help patients lighten their teeth up to 10 shades lighter in just a short office visit or two. Professional whitening treatments done by cosmetic dentists are faster and more effective than other whitening options.
Another popular cosmetic dental procedure is Dental Implants*. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth and more durable than other options such as dentures. Cosmetic dentists are experts in dental implants and you can rest easy knowing they will be able to find solutions for any problems that may arise with multiple dental implants. Dental implants are an excellent option for patients with missing teeth because they can last the patient’s lifetime, and they look and feel just like natural teeth. Additionally, dental implants will help prevent facial sagging which can occur for patients with missing teeth.
Straightening teeth is another service area in cosmetic dentistry. There are several procedures within cosmetic dentistry that can help patients fix their crooked or uneven teeth. Many cosmetic dentists specialize in an orthodontic treatment called Invisalign. Invisalign is a set of clear aligners that work similar to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is an excellent option for adults as it straightens your teeth a lot faster than metal braces and can be removed for eating and brushing your teeth. Porcelain veneers are another method that cosmetic dentists use to repair teeth that may be uneven or misshapen. They can also help in cases where the patient has cracks or large spaces between their teeth. Veneers can enhance a patients smile dramatically.
