What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and bites. It includes multiple dental procedures such as:
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure aimed at improving the appearance of teeth by reducing discoloration and staining. It involves using bleaching agents, most commonly hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which break stains into smaller pieces, making the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. While teeth whitening can significantly enhance one’s smile, it’s not a one-time procedure. Regular maintenance is required to keep your teeth looking their whitest.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from porcelain or resin covering the teeth’ front surface. They’re used to improve your appearance by covering the visible front areas of teeth to enhance color, shape, size, or length. Veneers are typically used for teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped or broken, misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone, providing a sturdy base for artificial teeth called crowns. Dental implants are a widespread and long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems.
Dental bonding is when a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately bonds the material to the tooth. Dental bonding is considered for several reasons – it can repair decayed teeth, repair chipped or cracked teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, close spaces between teeth, or change the shape of teeth.
