Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures That Can Improve Your Smile

Posted on: October 16, 2017

Flipping through the pages of magazines or watching videos online, it is obvious that a majority of celebrities receive some form of cosmetic dental work to their smile. People can have bright and shiny teeth, a straight smile, perfectly-shaped teeth or a smile with no gaps. These are all possible through the technology of cosmetic dentistry and available to you. If you have any feature of your smile that you wish to change, we can help.

A variety of possibilities

With cosmetic dentistry, we can help alter the appearance of a patient’s teeth and gums. Since there are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, there are several categories to divide cosmetic procedures into.

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is also widely known as prosthetic dentistry and involves the design, manufacture and fitting of artificial replacements for the teeth. Prosthodontics will help patients repair damaged teeth, replace missing teeth or change the appearance of existing teeth.

Endodontics

Endodontics is another part of cosmetic dentistry which studies and deals with the diseases that affect dental pulp. The dental pulp is the inside the outer shell of the tooth and is incredibly sensitive. If an infection is not treated soon enough, the patient may need to remove the tooth and receive a dental implant.

Periodontics

Periodontics involves the improvement and treatment of the structure surrounding the teeth and jaw. Periodontics can include a variety of non-surgical and surgical treatments depending on the needs of the patient. Since each patient is unique, we will need to customize the treatment.

Teeth whitening or bleaching

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures that we perform. There are multiple methods and forms of teeth whitening. However, patients may attempt to whiten their own teeth through the use of over-the-counter products that are a waste of money and not nearly as effective.

We recommend scheduling an appointment and visiting our office for teeth-whitening treatments. We will examine the patient’s teeth and decide on the most effective option. Our teeth whitening treatment can help patients achieve the bright and shining smile they have always wanted.

Teeth contouring

Teeth contouring involves changing the shape of the tooth. Some people may not like how one tooth seems larger than the surrounding teeth. Straightening teeth does not help as the tooth will not change size by simply moving in the mouth. Thus, teeth contouring is a useful procedure to help effectively alter the size of the tooth.

Patients can reshape their tooth to the appearance they feel comfortable with. Moreso, patients will be able to smile without feeling self-conscious about their appearance.
