Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to solve unsightly issues with your smile.  Enhancing your smile can lead to better first impressions as well as higher confidence and self-esteem.   Cosmetic dentistry can give you something to smile about.

Basic Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening.  Dentists have several ways to whiten your smile that are easy and effective.  This procedure can be done at your dentist’s office and sometimes even in your own home, depending on the specific method you select.

Gone are the days when getting a tooth filled meant showing off a mouth full of metal fillings.  Cosmetic dentistry has opened the door for dentists to use materials that are more like your own teeth while doing repair work.  This means that fillings are much less noticeable and they will look and feel more like your natural teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry for your Whole Mouth

Some people decide to completely redo their smile.  This could mean realigning teeth through orthodontics.  With more options for orthodontic appliances on the market, many adults are now working to correct those issues with their tooth alignment that they weren’t able to have done when they were younger.  Straightening teeth can go a long way for your smile and cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve that.

Dental implants and dentures are great cosmetic dentistry tools that can help restore missing or damaged teeth from your smile.  Dental care providers are constantly making breakthroughs with both of these options to find solutions that can help save your smile without compromising bone density or leading to other problems down the road.

If you have chipped teeth or teeth that have had significant damage or work, you may also look into tooth bonding.  This is when materials are bonded directly to your teeth to offer better appearance and structure.

Similarly, veneers, crowns and bridges can also be used to rejuvenate your mouth and smile.  Cosmetic dentistry has used these tools for quite some time to help improve the look and quality of your smile.  Advancements in materials and care have also improved the quality and strength of these items as well.  They look and function just like your natural teeth.
