If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, cosmetic dentistry offers all of the solutions needed to correct it. Missing teeth, cracks or chips in a tooth, crooked teeth, large spaces between the teeth, and much more can be corrected with non-invasive treatment. Improving a smile has both physical and emotional health benefits.
Missing teeth cause difficulty chewing, speaking, and alter an individual’s facial structure. An individual won’t have to hide their mouth when they smile, talk, or laugh after cosmetic dentistry has been performed. A great smile will be an asset to an individual’s personal and business life.
Instead of using amalgam fillings that cause a dark-colored tooth appearance, a dentist uses natural-colored materials to restore a tooth. These types of fillings are resin and provide a natural-looking appearance. They are also used to replace amalgam fillings when a patient is interested in a smile makeover.
Stained teeth from medication, age, drinking coffee, tea, wine, or medication will be eliminated with the help veneers. Veneer are custom-made for each tooth and will be bonded or cemented to the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers look identical to natural teeth and are able to fill spaces and fix flaws in a tooth.
Composite bonding offers an affordable way to fix flaws with a smile. A dental composite material will look like enamel and sculptured to the shape an individual wants. A high-intensity light helps to harden the resin to complete the process.
Inlays And Onlays
Inlays and onlays fill a tooth that has tooth decay or other structural damage. An inlay or onlay is not the same as filling because they are created in a laboratory and are fitted to the tooth. A filling is molded into place.
During a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, you can expect to receive a comprehensive intraoral examination and determination of the dental work that had previously been performed. X-rays or other photographs might be taken. The dentist will discuss tooth color and show you a variety of before and after photographs of different procedures.
