Your local cosmetic dentist can give you a complete smile makeover; making you look much more attractive and beautiful!
Cosmetic dentistry is basically the dental procedures that are done to improve the quality of your smile and appearance. There are multiple affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures, and can avail any of them depending on your needs.
This is, by far, the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. It can either be done in-office, meaning it can be performed by your local cosmetic dentist at his clinic using different bleaching agents. On the other hand, you can either get bleaching agents and teeth whitening products from local drug stores and retailers. These are usually in the gel form; the gel is squeezed into a mold that fits your teeth. It’s performed after deposits of plaque and teeth discoloration takes place due to poor oral hygiene and consuming staining foods and beverages.
What are they? Well, they are actually porcelain or resin that are tooth-colored to cover the front side of teeth. Your local cosmetic dentist will place them for you after he removes about a millimeter of enamel from your teeth. These are unique to each patient – made according to his or her shape teeth and structure.
Dental veneers benefits include prevention of some dental issues like crooked teeth, gap between teeth, etc. Known as the ‘Hollywood Teeth’, they can be quite expensive.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlay and onlay are a type of indirect filling usually done when the teeth are gradually decaying. They are made of Gold, Porcelain and other composite materials that can be easily used to fill in. The difference between them is that inlays are placed directly onto some part of the teeth surface whereas onlays are used to cover the entire surface of the teeth. The type of filling depends on the degree of decay.
Composite bonding is another method to reduce the effects of decayed teeth. The local cosmetic dentist removes the decayed part of teeth, applies a material holding great resemblance to your teeth color and then eventually shapes your teeth. This method is another affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure.
A dental crown makes your teeth as good as new; they’re placed right above your decayed teeth like a cap and restores the original shape, size, structure, strength and appearance. Crowns are able to hold your teeth together so if you have faced a severe injury or severely discolored teeth, then dental crowns should be cosmetically placed.
Let us tell you what a dental implant is, defined by the Academy of General Dentistry. When an artificial tooth is positioned in your mouth for a dental prosthesis, it is said to be a dental implant. Dental prosthesis includes crown, bridge, or denture. A titanium framework is attached to your jawbone on which prosthetic teeth are mounted.
