Do you give a tight-lipped smile in order to hide the appearance of your teeth? Are you self-conscious of your silver fillings? Are your teeth too short, too far apart, or stained?
Cosmetic Dentistry is a discipline within dentistry in which the primary focus is the modification of appearance of a patient's oral cavity and surrounding structures, rather than the prevention and treatment of organic, structural, or functional oral disease. Through Cosmetic Dentistry, the appearance of the mouth can be altered to more closely match the patient's subjective concept of what is visually pleasing.
Strange as it may seem, the appearance of your mouth can make you look older than you are, affecting the first impressions you make on others and your self-confidence. Millions of people undergo Cosmetic Dentistry every year to improve the appearance of their smile.
Flaws commonly fixed by Cosmetic Dentistry include stained teeth, gummy smiles, gaps between teeth, unsightly silver fillings, chipped and crooked teeth. Cosmetic Dentistry includes everything from subtle changes to major repairs, and utilizes teeth whitening, tooth colored fillings and Porcelain Veneers, Dental Implants, tooth bonding, dental crowns and bridges, tooth contouring and reshaping, dentures and denture fillings, root canals and gum reshaping.
Today's top Cosmetic Dentistry procedures options include:
The most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedure, many whitening options are now available to consumers in a wide range of prices. Dentist-supervised treatments remain the AACD recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.
A replacement for dentures, Dental Implants are a stronger, more attractive option for replacing missing or lost teeth. An anchor is placed in the patient's jaw, and a life-like ceramic restoration is built around it and matched to the original tooth color.
An increasingly popular procedure, dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made laminates that are affixed directly to the teeth. They are a great option for closing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that did not respond well to whitening procedures.
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns, also known as caps, restore damaged teeth. A crown covers a tooth and mimics the shape, size and color of the surrounding teeth. Dental crowns are indicated for cracked teeth and teeth with deep cavities; to protect teeth that have been filled by root canal treatment; to provide extra support for bridges; and to cover poorly shaped or colored teeth. Dental crowns may be made of metal, porcelain, or newer restorative materials.
An option for chipped or cracked teeth, bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth's surface, sculpted into shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile.
