What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
When it comes to restoring a great smile, patients may want to pursue esthetic dental procedures. This type of surgery can repair a malformed bite or crooked teeth. It can also remedy a past injury, or improve your overall appearance. That’s why esthetic dentistry has become an essential option.
If you have misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth esthetic dentistry will restore them. This procedure can also be the perfect option for changing the overall shape of your teeth if they’re too long or short, have gaps, or just need reshaping.
Other common procedures that can be performed include:
- Bonding - A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color.
- Contouring and reshaping - A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
- Veneers - A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.
- Whitening and bleaching – Both whitening and bleaching are rapidly increasing procedures that are used to make teeth whiter.
If you would like to improve your smile, why not schedule a dental exam? The exam will take many factors into consideration, including your overall oral health.
