Cosmetic dentistry is a broad category of dental treatments that can improve the look and function of your teeth. Depending on the problems you're seeing in your smile, your dentist may recommend one or multiple treatments.
Here are some common cosmetic dentistry treatments:
Teeth Whitening: This treatment brightens teeth through a bleaching process. It uses special whitening agents to lift stains from your teeth and lighten the overall brightness of your smile.
Veneers: These thin porcelain shells are custom-made to cover the front of your teeth. They conceal imperfections like discoloration, chips, cracks, and misalignment.
Invisalign®: This orthodontic treatment uses clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into better alignment and a more aesthetically-pleasing position.
Dental Bonding: This treatment uses tooth-colored composite resin to conceal cracks, chips, and gaps in your smile. The resin is carefully applied to the surface of your teeth and sculpted to hide flaws.
Gum Recontouring: This treatment is used to reduce a "gummy" smile. Your dentist will gently remove excess gum tissue to lengthen the appearance of your teeth.
Dental Implants: These titanium posts are placed into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth root. They provide a strong, durable foundation to support a custom crown, bridge, or denture.
Tooth Contouring: This treatment is used to lighten or reshape a tooth. Your dentist will use a small handpiece to gently and precisely remove small layers of your tooth's surface. This can improve problems with tooth shape, size, or alignment.
Whether you have overbite, underbite, or crooked teeth, these procedures can help you correct these issues.
If your teeth have minor cosmetic issues, like deep stains, minor chips, or gaps, then cosmetic dentistry might be right for you. If your teeth suffer from more serious cosmetic issues, like misshapen teeth, severe staining, or major chips, then it's best to consult with your dentist. They will be able to help you find the best way to fix your issue.
