Cosmetic Dentistry Can Fix Your Smile

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Fix Your Smile

With the advancement of dental technology and equipment, you don’t need to live with discolored or crooked teeth. Today, you can get your smile fixed at an affordable price. Furthermore, if done by our qualified prosthodontist, artificial teeth can last for years.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term representing any dental procedure that can improve your dental appearance. The dental treatments focus on improving color, position, shape, alignment, and the size of the teeth.

Although many dentists refer to themselves as cosmetic dentists, not all are qualified to do a smile makeover. General dentists can perform simple cosmetic procedures. However, cosmetic dentistry should be performed by a prosthodontist– so pay attention to the dentist’s qualification.

What Can It Fix?

Cosmetic dentistry can improve your teeth and overall dental appearance. The different procedures are recommended for;

  • Chipped teeth which can make your smile irregular and it can increase the risk of an infection
  • Discoloration and stains from coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco can. Stains can make your teeth dull, appear unhealthy and old. Teeth whitening procedures can address these issues
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth can lead to overcrowding
  • Cracked teeth not only are they less attractive, but they can cause pain and sensitivity when you take cold or hot foods. Plus, they are prone to infection. A restorative procedure can help fix the crack

What Treatment Options Are Available?

Our dentist will guide you in choosing the correct treatment options depending on your dental problem.

  • Teeth whitening

Teeth bleaching brightens your teeth and helps remove discoloration. Whitening is not a one-time procedure, but you will need different sessions to maintain the bright color.

While you can get various teeth whitening products like toothpaste on the market, these over-the-counter tooth products can only remove exterior staining. Additionally, store-bought teeth bleaching products can cause tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

At Complete Dental Care, we not only offer your deep teeth whitening but also take-home products to help you maintain the color.

Remember though, teeth whitening only removes stains and does not improve oral hygiene. You need to avoid substances that can stain your teeth and also practice daily oral hygiene.

  • Veneers

Dental veneers are thin porcelain used to create a natural-looking appearance while providing resilience and strength. These shells are custom-made to fit your natural teeth shape and are bonded to the original enamel. Veneers can last for years if you take care of them.

Veneers are part of your natural dentine and should be treated as such. Also, try to limit consumption of staining foods and drinks like coffee. Keep in mind, however, veneers will have to be replaced after sometime.

  • Bonding

Teeth bonding is the application of composite resin to repair chipped, fractured, discolored and decayed teeth. Unlike veneers, bonding can be done in a single visit.

Dental bonding is safe, but the composite resin isn’t as strong as your teeth. The material can separate from your teeth if you eat ice or bite down hard foods. Additionally, the resin is not stain-resistant and can get discolored.

  • Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent and long-term dental procedure done to replace tooth loss. Implants have three parts;

  • Titanium metal that is inserted on your jawbone
  • An abutment fitted over the implant and gums
  • Crown which has a tooth-like appearance.

Implants can be used to replace one or more teeth and they provide support. However, you have to be eligible for the procedure for our dentist to recommend it.

  • Lumineers

Lumineers are similar to veneers, however, the shell is much thinner and preserves more of the natural shape of your teeth.

With veneers, a significant amount of enamel must be removed and that is irreversible. Lumineers, on the other hand, ultra-thin shells are placed with minimal changes to your enamel.

  • Inlay and Onlays

Dental inlays and Onlays are done to repair the back teeth with mild decays. Inlays are considered if the damage does not affect the cusp while Onlays are applied on the cusps.
