At Greater Dental Health, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth, and smile. People often seek cosmetic dentistry services to enhance the look of their smile if they have discoloration, chips, or cracks in their tooth enamel. Many patients feel self-conscious about their teeth, affecting their ability to socialize with others and feel confident on the job. Patients may also have difficulty speaking or eating certain foods due to the condition of their smile. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can restore beauty and function to a flawed smile!
Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Porcelain veneers are thin shells bonded to the fronts of your teeth to conceal various cosmetic imperfections, such as chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, or uneven tooth alignment. Porcelain mimics the appearance of natural enamel and provides a stain-resistant surface that can last for decades with proper care.
Over time, teeth can become discolored due to staining foods and drinks you consume daily. This can take a toll on the appearance of your smile and make you feel self-conscious about how you look. When you choose professional whitening, we can help you to achieve excellent results in a short period. We can also help protect the results by addressing any underlying causes before the procedure.
Your dentist may suggest dental crowns for teeth with extensive decay or that have undergone root canal therapy. These restorations help strengthen and protect your teeth and improve your overall appearance. A crown fits over the entire tooth, restoring its function and appearance.
Dental bonding is a procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to your tooth. The material is molded into place to cover the entire surface of your tooth. This material is then hardened using a special light that bonds the resin to the tooth. Once in place, the bonded material will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are many reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry. Your smile can make you look younger and more attractive, boosting your self-esteem and confidence. These good feelings can also spill over into other areas of your life. If you are self-conscious about your smile, you may shy away from people or situations that make you nervous. You may even withdraw from social functions altogether. But if you have a lovely smile that you are proud to show off, you are much more likely to take on those projects at work that no one else wants to do.
