14 Nov Improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry
A smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest procedure can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more!
There are many different treatments available to improve dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Common procedures include Teeth whitening, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring your teeth.
These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems such as your bite.
Types of cosmetic Dentistry:
Teeth whitening is a relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile, whitening teeth can be accomplished at home or at a dental office. It is the most common cosmetic dental procedure.
While many whitening options are now available, including over the counter products, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discoloured teeth. Over the counter procedures can result in disappointing and unsafe results.
Porcelain and Composite Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the front surfaces of your teeth, they usually need minimal reduction of tooth enamel and are strong and stain resistant.
Composite veneers are a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to the front surfaces of your teeth, sculpted into shape, hardened and then polished. They are made at the dentist’s office so you can have instant results; however, they need more maintenance than Porcelain veneers as they may stain and chip under a lot of pressure.
A dental crown is a tooth-shape “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, alignment and improve its appearance
