What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a practice that serves to enhance and improve the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry works to restore depending on your goal, whether you want to fix that crack or dent on your teeth, regain your bite, or even have a balanced smile. There are many dental issues cosmetic dentistry can restore. These issues may include:
- Discolored teeth
- Missing teeth
- Large gaps in teeth
- Receding gums
You may have to visit your dentist if you have any problems or any other teeth-related issues.
What are the standard procedures in cosmetic dentistry?
There are different procedures that your doctor may use to restore your appearance. They may be:
- Teeth whitening
This procedure is the most common. It clears internal and external stains from any part of your teeth. There are two different forms of the teeth whitening procedure;
- ZOOM! Teeth whitening
This treatment uses light therapy and hydrogen peroxide to clean your teeth and deep stains. It is quick and painless and is suitable for you if you wish to regain that white color of your teeth in a short time.
- EPIC teeth whitening
This treatment is different from the zoom method as it involves keeping a whitening gel on your teeth for a few minutes at a time. It may be very effective if you have sensitive gums or teeth.
Teeth whitening is a very effective solution for your teeth as it can penetrate even the deeper parts of your teeth.
- Dental implants
These are implants that replace teeth entirely, from the root. They may be the best choice if you have poor bridgework or dentures or do not have the roots required for a complete dental restoration. They may be the best for teeth wholly broken as they offer safe and long-lasting replacements.
- Onlays and inlays
They are porcelains that restore decayed teeth similarly to dental fillings.
Other dental procedures your dentist may recommend include; veneers, lumineers, bonding, and crowns.
