What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the art of restoring the beauty of a patient's smile. Dentists primarily intend to improve appearance using cosmetic dentistry techniques, but some methods may also have therapeutic benefits.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry not only affects your smile, but it can also boost your quality of life. Many people with broken, stained, or misaligned teeth feel self-conscious about smiling and laughing in public. They may not want to have their picture taken with their teeth showing. With cosmetic dentistry, you can feel free to show off your smile and bring positive energy to your relationships.
Today's teeth whitening techniques can give you excellent results in just one or two appointments. In-office teeth whitening can take years off your smile. At-home whitening trays provide touch-ups.
Invisalign takes the science of correcting tooth alignment and brings it into the dentist's office. The system consists of a graduated series of medical-grade clear plastic aligners. Every one to two weeks, you will change your aligners to shift your teeth into better positions. Generally, within 12 to 18 months, you will have a new, beautifully straightened smile. Traditional braces can take up to three years to work.
Traditional braces sometimes attract unwanted attention. Adults and older teens can use Invisalign to straighten their teeth discreetly. Invisalign benefits adults in public-facing professions and teens who want to keep their orthodontic work private.
The comfortable aligners do not cut into sensitive mouth tissues like braces. They come out before eating, so you can have whatever you want without worrying about your aligners. Clean your teeth and your aligners before replacing them in your mouth.
Veneers are thin layers of tooth-colored material applied to natural teeth. These dental restorations can cover multiple cosmetic issues simultaneously, including stained, chipped, misaligned, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can reduce the number of appointments needed to enhance your teeth and the cost of your treatment. Veneers come in two varieties:
- Porcelain: Thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain cover prepared natural teeth. Porcelain is durable, attractive, and stain-resistant.
- Composite: Composite veneers are an affordable alternative to porcelain. They do not last quite as long as porcelain veneers, but many prefer them.
Cosmetic bonding is the process of filling or restoring teeth with a tooth-colored material in order to improve a tooth’s appearance. In order to bond a tooth, composite material is added to the tooth structure to adjust the size, shape, or color of the existing tooth.
