Cosmetic dentistry includes all dental procedures that are performed to improve the appearance of one's teeth and smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures help improve your appearance by getting rid of dental flaws such as discoloration, misalignment, and gaps. Stained, chipped, cracked, and missing teeth can make you look older than you really are. By correcting these dental imperfections, cosmetic dentistry procedures can make you look more youthful.
The major benefits offered by cosmetic dentistry are the following:
When cosmetic dentistry procedures address your dental issues like crooked, stained, or gapped teeth, they will become clean, white, straight, and more attractive.
Cosmetic dentistry can help improve your smile, which can improve your confidence. A beautiful smile is the key to opening new doors and opportunities for you.
You will experience better overall health when you take good care of your teeth. Your oral health can affect your overall health as well.
Teeth whitening is an easy, inexpensive way to brighten your smile. Over time, the enamel on your teeth may become worn, dulled, or discolored. The foods you eat, tobacco use, and staining beverages can also affect the way your smile looks. Teeth whitening treatments work to lighten the enamel and result in a brighter smile.
With dental veneers, you can transform your smile from dull and discolored to bright and beautiful. The veneers are thin porcelain shells placed on the fronts of your teeth, and they look like natural tooth enamel. Veneers can improve the aesthetics of your smile by hiding discolorations, masking chips, correcting slight misalignments, and lengthening teeth.
Dental crowns may be used for different reasons. Crowns are used to protect teeth that have large fillings, cracked teeth, or teeth that have had a root canal. Crowns are also used to improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen or discolored. Crowns may also be used to cover a dental implant.
Orthodontics focuses on the treatment of improper bites, straightening teeth, closing gaps, and improving the appearance of the mouth and face. Braces are used to align teeth and create a perfect smile. Straightening teeth with braces improves your smile while also helping your oral health. Braces correct your bite and straighten your teeth. When teeth are properly aligned, it is easier to brush and floss, which can prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Braces can correct crooked teeth, a misaligned jaw, underbites, overbites, and crossbites.
Dental implants are a popular procedure because they can help restore multiple teeth at once. Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are surgically embedded into the jawbone. A temporary crown is then placed over the screw. A recovery period of about six months to a year is necessary to allow the titanium screw to fuse with the jawbone and for the gum tissue to heal. After this healing period, permanent dental crowns can then be attached to the dental implant.
