What are the procedures available under cosmetic dentistry?
Dental veneers are also widely used as dental restorations and have also become a popular cosmetic dentistry choice. They are thin shells of ceramic or porcelain that are cemented to the topical surface of teeth to improve their color, shape, and size. Veneers are also capable of fixing cracks, chips, fractures, and teeth with gaps between them. They are custom-made and mimic the texture and look of natural teeth very easily.
Tooth whitening is the most coveted and the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. The procedure brightens and whitens your smile and makes it look more appealing and beautiful. During the process of tooth whitening, a whitening agent rich in oxidizing agents is painted onto the topical surface of teeth. When the agent is removed or washed away, your teeth are free of discoloration and stains. Tooth whitening is the best procedure to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Invisalign is a modern and aesthetic alternative to traditional metal braces. It consists of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and slowly and steadily push them to their ideal position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and hard to spot with the naked eye. Invisalign is capable of treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues like:
- Deep bite
- Open bite
- Gapped teeth
Crown lengthening is a surgical cosmetic procedure performed to improve the aesthetics of your smile. It involves the exposure of a greater amount of tooth structure or crown for the purpose of eliminating a gummy smile.
Crowns are the most commonly used dental restorations. They are tooth-shaped porcelain caps that cover worn-down and damaged teeth in order to restore them. Crowns also protect weak teeth by providing strength and resilience. These days’ crowns are also being used in cosmetic dentistry to enhance the color, shape, and size of natural teeth. They are also custom-made to suit the unique needs of each patient.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings or composite fillings are fabricated from a mixture of powdered glass and composite resin. They are used to treat teeth that are inflicted with chips, cracks, decay, fractures, and discoloration. Tooth-colored fillings are used in composite dentistry because they blend in really well with the neighboring teeth and look natural.
It is difficult to live with missing teeth and patients with all or few missing teeth experience a lot of problems in their daily lives like difficulty in chewing and speaking. Also, their self-esteem and confidence are hampered due to the presence of gaps in their smiles. Dental implants provide the best solution for missing teeth. They are small titanium screws that are surgically planted below the gums and in the jawbone. These screws act as false tooth roots and are attached to a crown, bridge, or denture to restore the tooth structure above the gum line.
