Over the years, the field of dentistry and dental procedures has evolved to include cosmetic as well as medical services. If you’ve ever dreamed of having a perfect, glowing smile, nowadays, it’s possible to achieve! There are several cosmetic procedures out there that can enhance your smile through a treatment plan that many refer to as a “smile makeover”. Read on for some of the most common cosmetic procedures.
Tooth discoloration is a very common problem, whether it’s from coffee and wine stains, smoking, or physical conditions like certain illnesses. Teeth whitening can be done either at home with over-the-counter products, or in your dentist’s office for a higher quality, longer-lasting result.
For chipped or misshapen teeth, or for gaps, veneers offer a gorgeous, long-lasting solution that can be in place fairly quickly after two or three appointments. This procedure consists of thin porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Veneers give your teeth a uniform appearance, and can be used to cover gaps or correct discoloration as well. They’re also highly resistant to staining, so they’ll stay a gorgeous, bright color.
If you’re looking to straighten out crooked teeth or correct an overbite, Invisalign offers a convenient and aesthetically pleasing method. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear trays that are worn over your teeth to correct them over time. Unlike braces, the trays are not visible to others. Invisalign is a great choice for anyone who wants a straighter smile without wanting to be self-conscious about braces.
These bonds are similar to veneers, but utilizes a resin which bonds to your tooth with the help of ultraviolet light. This procedure can come in handy if you want a quick, aesthetically pleasing fix to a problematic tooth that has suffered a chip or has a jagged, rough edge.
Crowns completely cover the teeth like a cap, restoring the tooth to a normal shape and appearance.
A bridge is a single appliance that is generally attached to two teeth on each side of the space where a tooth is missing and an artificial tooth is attached to the bridge, filling the gap of the missing tooth.
