What is cosmetic dentistry?
This is a branch of dentistry that involves various techniques developed to improve your teeth alignment, shape, color, size, and overall appearance, aiming to give you an elegant and bright smile. It uses oral prosthetics and other advanced treatments to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
What are examples of cosmetic dentistry procedures?
Cosmetic dentistry involves many different procedures that are all dedicated to getting a particular result. These include:
If you are missing a single tooth, dental bridges can fill a space in your smile. There are various types of dental bridges, including cantilever bridges, Maryland, and traditional bridges.
These are tooth-shaped coverings that help to protect a severely damaged or decaying tooth. A crown covers the complete portion of your tooth enamel above the gum line. Once placed in the perfect position, it restores your tooth to its near-natural size and mimics your tooth’s original strength and shape.
This procedure is effective in turning back the clock for a discolored, stained, or yellowing smile. Although teeth whitening is not permanent, it can help brighten your smile for about six months, and regular touch-ups can extend your results even longer.
If you have stained, misshaped, or smaller than average teeth, veneers can be the perfect option for you. These are custom-tailored ceramic pieces or resin that are fused to the front of your permanent teeth.
These are used to treat minor tooth damage caused by tooth decay. The fillings are made of composite resin and blend perfectly with your tooth enamel so that no one knows you have had any work done.
If you have a chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth, dental bonding can avert further damage. Bonding uses composite resin material to effectively and quickly address tooth damage.
Dr. Grewal will educate you on your available options and recommend the best one for you.
What should you expect during your cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry can address a variety of aspects of the appearance of your smile. Your choice of treatment will vary depending on the issue you want to be fixed. During your initial appointment, the dentist will do any appropriate testing and discuss your treatment goals to develop a personalized cosmetic dentistry plan for you. Depending on the procedure, the treatment might be completed with a single visit or numerous appointments.
In conclusion, don’t let your smile lower your self-confidence any longer. Cosmetic dentistry is effective in having your smile enhanced or restored.
