When it comes to getting your teeth perfect, there are no shortage of cosmetic dental procedures that you can have to improve the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dental procedures are a popular way for people to get the smile they have always wanted. Working with a cosmetic dentist you can learn about the cosmetic dental procedures and and the best treatment options to help improve or perfect your smile.
Dental crowns are often used to cap or cover over a tooth that has undergone a root canal, prevent teeth from fracturing or they are often used to improve the look of teeth that are cracked, chipped, or discolored. Dental crowns can help prevent breakage of teeth as well as improve their appearance.
Veneers have been around for decades, but they continue to improve in strength, style, color and more. Veneers are made from porcelain or other hard materials and can be placed on one tooth or many teeth. Some people opt to have all of their existing teeth treated with veneers. Veneers are attached to existing teeth with dental cement, and cosmetic dentists can match the shape and color of your existing teeth for a seamless smile.
Dental implants are among the newest dental treatments for missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants require a lot of prep work, but they are worth it in the long run because they can be one of the best permanent options for cosmetic dentistry when a tooth is missing. Oral surgery is necessary to implant a titanium rod into the jawbone, and then after a recovery period which can last several months, a porcelain crown is placed on the titanium rod to complete the look of the tooth.
Tooth whitening is one of the fastest and often most economical ways to improve the look of your teeth. You can meet with a cosmetic dentist to review the types of tooth whitener that is on the market, but some of the most popular types are at-home professional kits, laser lights, and solutions that provide next-to- instant whitening results. Professional whitening kits and treatments last much longer than at-home kits you buy in stores.
Sometimes people have teeth that are not properly shaped or non-symmetrical. In this instance, tooth shaping or re-contouring might help to improve the look of teeth. In addition, some people have teeth that are sharper than they might like, or they are longer than they might like. Having a cosmetic dentist reshape your teeth can improve the look of your teeth in a short period of time and with minimal discomfort.
If you have crooked teeth or suffer from an overbite or crossbite, even as adult, you might consider getting braces to improve the look of your teeth. Adults are often self-conscious about the way their teeth look and more and more adults are opting to fix their teeth so that they don’t have to worry about the way they look anymore.
