Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Dentistry isn't just for functionality problems anymore. Having crooked and dull teeth can have a negative effect on your self-esteem, but with today's technology and procedures those that are unhappy with their smile can choose cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can help make your teeth straighter, brighter, and whiter so that you smile more often.
One of the most common complaints people have about their smile is that their teeth aren't white enough. Fortunately, this is also one of the easiest and cheapest ways to rejuvenate your smile. Stains occur naturally over time from drinking coffee, tea, and wine, consuming certain foods, smoking, and from age. There are hundreds of products made to help whiten your teeth from toothpaste, to gum, to kits, but the best option is in office whitening procedures. They will give you the fastest and best results.
Another procedure that can yield an instantly more attractive smile is porcelain veneers. Veneers are a thin porcelain cap that is applied to the front of an existing tooth. This is a great option for those that have chipped, cracked, or heavily discolored teeth. They are custom made for each patient to have the same shape and color as your existing teeth so that they blend in seamlessly.
Dental implants are an excellent choice for those that have missing teeth due to decay, trauma, or age. They are more comfortable than traditional dentures and can be more stable than dental bridges. Implants are used to replace the root of your tooth and are placed inside the gum for better grip. They can be used alongside dentures, dental bridges, and crowns giving them a more natural feel and look.
Tooth and Gum Contouring
If you have oddly shaped, overly long, overlapping, cracked, or chipped teeth, tooth contouring can help shape your tooth so it looks more cohesive with the rest of your teeth while still using your natural tooth. This is a subtle and minimal way to renew your smile.
Contouring isn't just for teeth. If you have gum reduction due to gum disease we can use gingival grafts to replace some of the missing gum. Gum reduction can make your teeth appear longer and misshapen. For those with a more "gummy" smile, a gingivectomy procedure can lessen the amount of gum covering your teeth.
