Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry involves improving the whole look of your teeth and smile through a variety of treatments, such as:
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain covers that go over the teeth. They are an aesthetic restoration that is often used to mask imperfections such as chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. Veneers are also used in smile makeovers, which combine multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments with improving the look of your smile.
The process for applying dental veneers is fairly simple and can usually be completed in two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. This will allow the veneers to fit naturally on your teeth. Next, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that the veneers can be custom-made.
A dental crown is a cap placed over a tooth to improve its appearance and function. A crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring it to its normal shape and size, strengthening it, and improving its appearance.
Dental crowns are used to protect a weak tooth from breaking or holding together parts of a broken tooth. They are also used to anchor a dental bridge, cover a dental implant, or cover a discolored or misshapen tooth.
A dental bridge is a device used to replace one or several missing teeth. A bridge is made up of artificial teeth that are anchored in place by crowns placed on the natural teeth on either side of the gap. The crowns hold the bridge in place.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that makes teeth whiter. The dentist may recommend teeth whitening if you have stained teeth.
Dental implants are tooth replacements that give patients the look and feel of natural teeth. Dental implants are surgically placed in the missing tooth gap, which over time fuses with the jawbone. The implant acts as an anchor for a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
