Cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that is designed to help improve your smile’s appearance. While improving your smile’s appearance is the main focus of cosmetic dentistry, it can also improve our overall oral health by improving your bite function.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
Teeth whitening is an easy and effective way to whiten your teeth. The procedure is non-invasive, so it’s safe and it’s effective. In just one visit to our cosmetic dentist, your teeth can be several shades whiter.
Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are thin shells of tooth-colored material. They are custom-made for each patient in order to improve the appearance of the front surfaces of the teeth.
Dental veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth, covering cosmetic imperfections and changing the shape and length of the teeth. Like dental crowns, veneers are permanent restorations. When properly cared for, dental veneers can last for many years.
Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to a tooth’s surface. This resin material is formulated to look natural when it is applied to a tooth.
Dental bonding can be used to help repair teeth that are chipped or cracked. This material can also be used to conceal minor flaws in a tooth, such as minor gaps between teeth.
Dental crowns, or caps, are restorations that cover the entire tooth. They are placed over a tooth that has been treated with a root canal or has undergone major damage. Crowns are strong and durable and can be made from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, metal alloys, porcelain, ceramic, resin, or porcelain fused to metal.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone. This implant acts as the root of a prosthetic tooth or teeth.
Contouring is the process of altering the shape or appearance of the jaw. This is usually done to correct a malformed bite (malocclusion) or to improve the aesthetic appearance of the face. Contouring can also be used to improve the results of cosmetic dental procedures.
One of the most common types of contouring is called gum contouring. It is used to correct the appearance of a “gummy” smile, in which the teeth appear short, and the teeth look as though they are oversized.
