Not everyone is born with a perfect smile. It takes time and effort on your part as well as help from your dentist to achieve the smile you dream of. Cosmetic dentistry is one such category in which dentists offer a multitude of options for perfecting your smile. From subtle changes to major work, your dentist can use methods and procedures to improve your smile with ease. Check out the treatment options below to determine what might be the right way for you to have the smile you have always dreamed of.
One of the more common cosmetic treatments that individuals undergo today is bleaching. This treatment method can help to whiten your teeth. Stains will disappear and your teeth will be a brighter shade of white, providing you with a lovely smile. Laser bleaching and professional whitening trays are just a small example of what can be done by way of bleaching to whiten your smile.
Another option for changing the color of your teeth as well as used to fill any gaps is bonding. Just one visit to the dentist office can result in bonding of the teeth which will last for many years. Bonded composite resins are used on the surface of the teeth or between teeth to help cover any imperfections or discolorations.
When you have a tooth that is broken or has an odd appearance, a crown can be added for a natural look. A crown will last for a very long time but is a time-consuming process. Also known as a cap, a crown will be added to the portion of your tooth that is missing or in need of restoration for a smooth finish.
New Look with Veneers
Perhaps the most popular treatment option that can provide a completely new look to teeth is veneers. With veneers, your teeth will look completely different as thin pieces of porcelain or plastic are added to the front of your teeth. The color and shape can be changed, with veneers applied to surfaces that are uneven. If you have chipped teeth, uneven shaped teeth, crooked or other issues, veneers can provide you with smooth and beautiful teeth without surgery or braces.
The treatment will require your dentist to make an impression of the teeth that will have veneers put in place. A custom made veneer will be created and once completed will be placed directly onto the tooth or teeth in question. The tooth/teeth will then be lightly buffed to take away the thickness of the veneer and make your teeth look cohesive.
