Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedures that help improve the appearance of teeth, gums, and bite of a person.
The procedures are mostly focused on enhancing the color, size, shape, alignment, and overall smile profile.
There are various types of cosmetic dentistry, to name a few please see list below:
This procedure is meant to restore teeth’s natural pearl white color. It is intended to remove stains or get a whiter shade of teeth.
A lot of people do not know that their favorite dishes, desserts, and drinks can affect the discoloration of the teeth. Even habits like smoking cigars have an impact on the overall mouth health.
To do this procedure, a chemical will be applied on the surface of the teeth. The dentist will estimate how much chemical the patient needs based on the size of the tooth and level of whitening they prefer. This procedure takes a few sessions to become successful.
Often used to cover chipped or broken tooth, crowns are placed on the enamel to restore teeth’s natural shape or look.
This procedure is often the last resort for dentists because it takes time to install crowns. But, while it is the most time consuming, it is also the most rewarding. Crowns have the longest life expectancy among along cosmetic dentistry procedures.
These thin pieces of porcelain are attached to the front teeth to give a smile an overhaul. Veneers can be customized to the preferred shape, shade, and size to deliver the best smile.
This procedure is easily the next available choice if patients do not wish to proceed with getting a crown.
To do this, dentists will get the impression of the patient’s teeth to create the exact look. Once the veneers are formed, the dentist will apply a thin film of cement between the teeth and the unit.
Contouring and Shaping
This procedure is the easiest to carry out. Mostly used to reshape and contour crooked and irregularly shaped tooth, this procedure cannot discount pain for both dentist and patient.
But, with the help of anesthesia, pain can be evaded.
It does not only make a person have a beautiful smile it also helps improve the bite of the person. Various problems arise when a person’s bite is not corrected such as grinding of the teeth when asleep.
This procedure is ideal for people with healthy enamel but wants to have a brighter smile by making small changes to their teeth. By evaluating the size and the location, this procedure can be very successful and fulfilling.
