August 30th, 2023

Taking care of our physical and mental health is important for our overall well-being, and it’s important that we feel good about ourselves in our daily lives. This includes taking care of our appearance, which can be as simple as exploring the world of cosmetic dentistry. This blog post talks about a few of the different types of cosmetic dentistry, and what you can expect from them.

Cosmetic dentistry 

This is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the look of your teeth, gums, and bite. It can be used to change the color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth, as well as the overall appearance of your smile. There are different cosmetic dentistry procedures available, below are a few of the most common cosmetic dental services:

Teeth Whitening treatment: This is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures offering a fast, safe, and affordable way to treat teeth discoloration. There are many causes of tooth discoloration, including certain foods and beverages, smoking, and aging. Teeth whitening can be done at home or by a dentist, and the results can last for several months if properly maintained.

Teeth whitening is done by using bleaching agents, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, that are applied on the teeth and rinsed off after some time. These whitening agents can be purchased over-the-counter or done by a dentist (In-office teeth whitening).

Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, and the effects will eventually wear off. However, it can be a great way to improve the appearance of teeth and boost confidence.

Dental Implants: Implants consist of titanium, which is a strong and durable material that can bond to the jawbone, this provides a stable foundation for the new tooth, and prevents the teeth from shifting or drifting. They are often more expensive than bridges or dentures, but they are a worthwhile investment, since they are a permanent solution for missing teeth that can provide a natural-looking and long-lasting smile.

If you are looking for dental implants to fix missing teeth, make sure to speak to a dentist to help you choose the right treatment for you.

Dental Veneers: Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry that can be used to give teeth a more radiant appearance. They are thin, shell-like coverings that are attached to the front of teeth and can be used to treat a variety of problems, including discoloration, chips, cracks, and misalignment. Veneers are more permanent than teeth whitening and can last for many years. They are also custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, so they look very natural. They are the lightest of all and the reflective surface allows the light to hit; giving that natural appearance.

Bonding: This is a cost-effective way to improve your smile, the results are visible after the procedure. The procedure involves a dentist applying composite resin material that is of the same color as the patient’s other teeth. The tooth is first hardened using a special curing light, the dentist will then contour and polish the area to leave you with a completely new look. This is a quick procedure that can easily be done in a single dental appointment.

Bonding is a durable procedure that can last for several years. However, it is important to take care of your teeth after a bonding procedure to extend the life of the restoration. This includes brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day, avoiding chewing on hard objects, and getting regular dental checkups and cleanings.
