With cutting-edge technology and fine dental material, cosmetic dentistry has gone miles to give you that sparkling smile.
Types of Cosmetic Dental Solutions
Having a lustrous and whiter smile is what everyone hopes for. There are several ways by which we can whiten teeth. In-office teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dental procedure performed inside the dentist's office. Dentists also offer over-the-counter whitening products to help enhance the color of your teeth at home. Laser teeth whitening is gaining widespread popularity due to its immediate results.
Veneers are thin, custom-designed shells made of porcelain or resin material. Veneers can function as both cosmetic enhancers and restorations. They help cover and protect the front surface of teeth. The dentist would remove a small portion of the damaged tooth from the enamel and bond the veneer to its surface to restore it.
Bonding is a classic cosmetic correction done on teeth to easily repair decayed, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth. A tooth-colored, resin material would be applied on the tooth's surface and hardened with a UV light. This would easily bond the material on the tooth's surface restoring its appearance and form.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays can offer solutions for your cosmetic and restorative dental problems. They are also known as indirect fillings. Inlays are applied within the enamel whereas an onlay would restore the tooth's biting surface.
Every smile has unique requirements and hence, smile makeovers are designed just to improve the smile's overall appearance and aesthetics. It involves a comprehensive assessment of your smile and one or more cosmetic procedure to correct it.
Cosmetic dental procedures can have dramatic results to the patient's overall appearance. They can help boost your confidence, self-esteem, and help give you a fuller smile.
