Cosmetic dentistry is more readily available now than ever before; a consultation with your cosmetic dentist will offer solutions for stained or discolored teeth, chipped or broken enamel, uneven or crooked teeth, unwanted gaps between teeth, or to restore one or more missing teeth.
A popular method to treat stain or discolored teeth is with teeth whitening. Depending on your time frame or preferences, you can choose in-office whitening allowing the patient to realize an amazing transformation in one brief dental appointment … or take-home whitening designed for patients who wish to whiten in the privacy of their home. This method takes longer, but both teeth whitening programs have similar advantages in that there is a dental professional available to address questions or concerns throughout your teeth whitening experience.
And since you are acquiring whitening from a licensed provider, you have the security of knowing that your whitening program contains one of the most powerful whitening agents available; and has been tested for safety and effectiveness.
Porcelain is a material that is strong, stain resistant, and is used in several cosmetic applications. Veneers are very thin tooth colored shells that are bonded to the fronts of teeth that are chipped, uneven, severely stained, or to correct unwanted gaps between teeth. Veneers can correct one or several teeth with a result that is natural, beautiful, and permanent.
Dental crowns have been around for a very long time, but now they can be made from porcelain for crowns needed in the smile line. Crowns are used to save broken or deeply decayed teeth, as anchors for fixed prosthesis, as the finishing step for root canal therapy, or as the cosmetic restoration for a dental implant … crowns have many applications in cosmetic dentistry.
Missing teeth can be restored with dental implants. An implant is a small, titanium post that is surgically placed in gum tissue where tooth loss has occurred. Jawbone will fuse to the implant during the healing period, a process called osseointegration. The implant will eventually become a permanent part of your dental anatomy acting much like the roots of a natural tooth to provide strength and support for the restoration that will be affixed to it.
