Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that bond to the front of your teeth. When in place, they will cover any discolorations, spaces, or gaps between your teeth. They can also be used to correct the appearance of teeth that are misaligned, cracked, or chipped.
Veneers can be made from different materials, but porcelain offers the most natural appearance. They outlast composite resin veneers, and porcelain resists staining better than resin. However, both materials offer the same benefits.
Many patients choose our teeth whitening procedure because it is fast, effective, and safe. First, we clean your teeth. Then, we take impressions of your teeth to create custom whitening trays for your teeth. Once they are ready, you will wear them for two weeks while you sleep. After that, we check your teeth again to make sure they have lightened to your desired shade.
Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure used to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, or discolored. The bonding material is similar to tooth-colored putty and can be used to fill in gaps between teeth and cover discolored areas.
Bonding is one of the simplest and least expensive procedures in cosmetic dentistry. It’s also one of the least invasive. Because it’s a soft material, it can be directly applied on top of teeth without the need for grinding down teeth.
Tooth contouring, also known as tooth reshaping, is a simple procedure to fix minor tooth imperfections. It is a cosmetic procedure, meaning it’s designed to correct imperfections in smiles. Most patients choose to undergo tooth contouring to fix minor teeth discoloration. It can also help correct teeth that are crooked or oddly shaped.
Dental bridges can be used to fill gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. The dental bridge is permanently attached to the adjacent teeth and is designed to look like your natural teeth. The bridge restores the function of your teeth and helps prevent problems with your bite.
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that fill in your smile gaps. Your dentist installs the implants into your jawbone. Then, you wait several months for the implants to fully heal. Once your implants are ready, your dentist will attach your prosthetic teeth to the implants. They look, feel, and act just like natural teeth.
