What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures created to improve your smile. There are numerous procedures that can whiten, tighten, straighten, and restore your teeth. If you’ve lost the confidence to smile the way you used to, cosmetic dentistry can change your whole outlook on the world and it can change the way the world sees you, too.
Why do people seek cosmetic dentistry?
People choose cosmetic dentistry to improve a variety of dental problems, including:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Missing teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Crooked teeth
What kinds of procedures are involved in cosmetic dentistry?
The most popular cosmetic procedures generally include:
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic Bonding
Although our practice doesn’t include dental implants, we offer other techniques to achieve a flawless smile. These include crowns or veneers, which are placed over your teeth to correct discoloration, correct spacing and change the profile of a misshapen tooth. Bridges, or fixed partial dentures, are also used to replace missing teeth with artificial ones.
Color correction can also be accomplished by teeth bleaching methods. Teeth whitening is a popular request as teeth are easily stained by ingesting certain foods or drinks, smoking, or taking certain medications. By creating a custom mouthpiece tray, your dentist will apply the appropriate amount of whitening solution for your teeth.
There are also procedures to reshape your teeth, known as enamel shaping and contouring. You may opt to modify the length, shape, or positioning of your teeth to correct crooked or overlapping teeth, chipped teeth, or minor bite problems.
Which procedure is right for me?
The treatment depends on the condition of your teeth and your desired result. Dr. Vanaria and Dr. Stijacic can assess your teeth and compare that with your desired outcome and come up with a plan to fulfill that desire.
Be sure to ask questions regarding what the procedure entails, and what kind of maintenance will be required.
