Every day we get to meet and greet different kinds of people. Wouldn’t it be nice if we have almost perfect teeth every time we smile? This could boost self-esteem and self-confidence which also brighten up our lives. Moreover, having a good set of teeth can be a good start of a healthy life. In this scenario enters cosmetic dentistry.
In cosmetic dentistry the dentist performs a variety of procedures to improve your smile. These procedures are indicated for:
- Teeth discoloration
- Noticeable gaps
- Permanent stains
- Broken or misshapen teeth
- Restore worn or short teeth
- Reshaping teeth
The following are some kinds of cosmetic dentistry:
Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of the teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years. Bonding is more susceptible to staining and chipping than other forms of restoration. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resin may be the material of choice. Bonding is also used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between the teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.
This is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance and health of theteeth. It is used to cover teeth that have been damaged by injury or disease, teeth that have been discolored and teeth that people are not happy with the appearance of. Veneers are made of a thin composite material that is attached to the front of the teeth. The procedure requires a person to have an exam and to have a mold of the teeth made. The veneers are made at a lab from the mold. That process can take 1 to 2 weeks. Once the veneers have been made, they are bonded to the teeth with special cement.
These are increasingly popular types of veneer. They serve the same role as traditional veneers. They can be used to improve the appearance of teeth. Lumineers are very thin (contact lens-thin) ceramic veneer made from patented cerinate porcelain that is translucent. They have the natural appearance of the enamel of the teeth, but they do not require the preparation or the pain that can be involved with traditional veneers. They can be applied to the front face of the teeth without having to remove much of the enamel of the teeth. Lumineers typically require two visits to complete the procedure.The restorations are very thin and little or no tooth preparation is advocated.
Teeth whitening is a procedure that is designed to make the teeth whiter. It is often referred to as bleaching. The process involves putting a special type of chemical on the teeth to whiten them. It is designed to help people that have teeth that have become discolored by age or from staining. There are teeth whitening products that people can do themselves, but for best results a person should go to a dental professional. Teeth whitening needs to be done every 3 to 6 months.
Crowns, also known as caps, cover a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and appearance. Due to their cost, they are used in cases where other procedures will not be effective. Crowns have the longest life expectancy of all cosmetic restorations, but are the most time-consuming.
