3 Cosmetic Dentistry Techniques to Transform Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve the appearance of your mouth, smile or teeth, though not necessarily their function. But considering how important our smile can be in social interactions, it can still be extremely important. It’s more than just vanity. A beautiful smile can be the key to nailing that job interview, finding that special someone, and making friends.
Here are 3 cosmetic dental work techniques to improve your smile.
Dental veneers are typically manufactured from medical-grade ceramic and custom created to look like your natural teeth. They are applied to your teeth using a dental adhesive. They look impressively realistic. They’re a good option for addressing cracked or missing teeth, fixing gaps between teeth, and fixing crooked teeth.
Bonding repairs decayed, damaged or discolored teeth using material that resembles the color of tooth enamel. The decay is drilled out of the tooth and then a composite is applied to the surface, sculpted into the right shape and cured with a high intensity light. It is one of the least expensive solutions to tooth decay, chipped or cracked teeth and worn-down edges. The result is natural-looking teeth that appear perfect and healthy in every way.
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic dentistry procedures, but the results can be a dramatic improvement. Plaque, tartar and other debris are cleaned from the surface of each tooth for a more natural appearance. The teeth are then bleached to become a beautiful shiny white. It helps to remove stains that build up over the years from food, drinks, medication and smoking.
