Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, gums, and overall smile.
Cosmetic dental treatments are typically elective procedures that are performed to enhance the patient’s confidence and self-esteem by creating a more attractive smile. This can involve a variety of treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, and orthodontics.
Cosmetic dentistry is a popular and growing field, as more and more people are seeking to improve the appearance of their smile.
Many cosmetic dental treatments are minimally invasive and can be completed in just one or two visits, making them a convenient and effective option for patients who want to enhance the appearance of their teeth. At the same time, cosmetic dental treatments can also improve oral health by addressing issues such as misalignment, discoloration, and chipped or broken teeth, which can lead to further dental problems if left untreated.
COMPOSITE RESIN FILLINGS
Amalgam fillings and gold fillings are becoming obsolete as more patients choose to go with composite resin “tooth-colored” fillings. Composite resin fillings can be made to match the color of a patient’s natural tooth. Composite resin fillings have rendered the silver fillings that were once telling signs of cavities unnecessary.
Dental bonding can repair chips and cracks in teeth, and cover areas of discoloration. During the procedure a composite resin is applied to the tooth, layer-by-layer, and cured (hardened) with a light. The dentist will smooth and polish the bonded material once it has set.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a false tooth that is permanently secured to the jaw. A small titanium rod will be fixed into the jawbone, and once the jawbone has adhered to the structure, a false tooth will be attached to it.
Dental inlays and onlays are materials used to strengthen and repair decayed or otherwise damaged posterior teeth. They can be made of an attractive porcelain material and are ideal for restoring cracked or fractured teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that may be used to cover chipped, cracked or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth with special bonding agents.
