Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your smile through treatments such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and composite bonding. The appearance of a smile can impact a person’s self-esteem and confidence.
A smile that shows beautifully aligned teeth is an indication of overall good oral health. On the other hand, years of drinking coffee or wine or using tobacco products can stain the enamel of your teeth and turn them yellow or brown over time. When this occurs, patients may put off smiling in social and professional situations. Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry can help fix these problems.
At Allouez Family Dental, with cosmetic dentistry procedures like professional teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, you can gain a brighter, more youthful-looking smile that you’ll be proud to show off to the world. In addition to removing stains from your teeth, these cosmetic treatments can correct crooked teeth and minor gaps between teeth.
The Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Straightening misaligned teeth can improve a person’s smile, self-confidence, and quality of life.
- Replacing multiple missing teeth helps improve the chewing and speaking functions of the mouth.
- Repairing damaged or decayed teeth improves overall health and prevents further tooth loss.
- The appearance of your teeth can affect how young you look overall. You can look more youthful by correcting discolorations, gaps, and alignment issues!
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Teeth whitening improves discoloration, staining, and dullness of enamel. It allows patients to brighten their smiles by several shades.
Dental bonding is a quick and non-invasive way to improve the appearance of teeth. Typically, dental bonding is used to repair minor chips and cracks in the enamel. However, it is also commonly used to make minor alignment improvements.
Porcelain veneers are a more extensive type of cosmetic dentistry procedure. They are custom-made shells that are placed over natural teeth. Using porcelain veneers, patients can improve their smile's alignment, shape, color, and overall appearance.
Several cosmetic dental procedures can restore and improve the appearance of your smile, including dental crowns. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that fit over a tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed. A dental crown is also very effective at restoring the appearance of teeth that are misshapen, stained, cracked, or broken. They can also be used to support bridges, cover implants, protect a weak tooth from fracturing, or restore a broken tooth.
Many patients who used to feel self-conscious about their smiles often say that after getting cosmetic work done, they feel like entirely new persons!
