How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help?
Cosmetic dentistry includes several treatment procedures that are primarily aimed at enhancing the appearance of one’s smile. Some of the procedures also improve the mouth’s functionality by strengthening the teeth and preventing their failure. Here are some of the common cosmetic procedures that you could benefit from.
Implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth as they are fixed to the jawbone. They offer a life-like appearance and amazing strength, making them the go-to solution when patients wish to restore their missing teeth.
Bridges are simple tooth restorations that do not require surgery to be bonded in place of the missing tooth. They look exactly like natural teeth in terms of color, shape, and texture, and also function like natural teeth.
Dental crowns are placed on teeth that are too weak, worn out, cracked, chipped, or broken. This allows the dentist to restore them to their ideal function and aesthetics.
Bonding includes the application of composite resinous material on the surface of teeth to get rid of surface imperfections. Issues such as minor cracks, receding of gums, misshapen teeth, chipped teeth, excess spaces between teeth, etc., can be treated using bonding.
Veneers are extremely thin restorations made from composite resin or dental-grade ceramic. They are bonded to the teeth to eliminate the surface imperfections, such as cracks, chipping, discoloration, excessive wear, large gaps between adjacent teeth, etc.
The teeth tend to stain due to excessive consumption of colored foods, smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, drinking wine and aerated beverages, etc. These stains can be removed to give you a sparkling white smile using teeth-whitening procedures. The most prominent ones are conventional in-office whitening, take-home whitening trays, and laser teeth whitening.
The gums complete the appearance of your smile. But, gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis can make your smile appear displeasing, as they have symptoms such as bleeding and discharge of pus, redness, the decay of the tissues, etc. We treat gum disease by removing the decayed tissues with laser therapy, root planing to remove the tartar deposits, and grafting healthy tissues to the receded area. After a healing period of a few weeks, the gums would be back to their ideal condition.
Orthodontic treatment aims at correcting the alignment of misaligned teeth. This is done using orthodontic aligners, such as dental braces, retainers, Invisalign, etc. Treating malocclusion not only makes your smile appear better but also allows you to clean your teeth effectively.
