Cosmetic Dentistry

Generally speaking, a cosmetic dentist is a restorative dentist who understands the concepts of smile design and the necessary dental materials to make a patient’s desires a reality. Cosmetic dentists are usually affiliated with a professional organization that provides continuing education and levels of accreditation to verify outstanding achievement in the study of cosmetic dentistry. These dentists will be able to present patients with various options to fix their teeth depending on what they need.

Front teeth cosmetic options

If a patient is looking to cover up the fronts of teeth for a specific look, dental veneers are a highly effective choice. If a tooth needs added protection, dental crowns can fully cap a tooth down to the gumline. To fix discolorations and stains, dental bonding treatments and tooth whitening systems are both highly effective.

Missing teeth can be a huge burden on one’s quest for a great smile and on oral health. Thus, people should always replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Dentures offer a removable option that is easy to clean at night, but it is also one that may come with a few food restrictions. Dental bridges and implants are permanent tooth replacements that offer a durable hold that removes the need for food restrictions.

Discolored or chipped tooth

Tooth bonding is an effective and easy way to repair a discolored or slightly-damaged tooth. Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high-intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because we bond the materials to the tooth. Bonding is typically for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.

Bonding also closes the spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Often times bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.

Call us for a consultation

As always, if a patient is not sure what cosmetic procedure is the right choice, then we can make a recommendation. The whole point of a consultation is to make sure you know your options and can choose what will be most successful in what dental ailment you’re trying to fix.

You can expect your dentist to ask you to describe in detail what you like and dislike about your smile, and what you want to change. Once your dentist has a thorough understanding of where you are starting from and where you want to end up, he or she can explain your treatment options.
