Aesthetic dentistry, in many cases, is the implementation or combination of several services and procedures that can improve your smile as well as your overall health and wellbeing.
Aesthetic dentistry includes:
Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures in modern dentistry. Teeth that are stained from smoking, food, or drinks (coffee, red wine, or tea). Bleaching, good oral hygiene, and seeing the hygienist on a regular basis will enhance your smile.
With modern dental materials, it is possible to correct chipped, broken, discolored, or decayed teeth. A composite material with the variety of colors available for enamel and dentin is applied to the chipped, broken, discolored, or decayed tooth surface and then sculpted into the desired form or shape and hardened with a high-intensity light source. These restorations will blend seamlessly with the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth.
Composite or porcelain laminates (veneers) are adhesively bonded to the surface of the tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks. Veneers can correct worn appearance, gaps between the teeth, and severe tooth discoloration.
Inlays and onlays:
Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from gold, porcelain, or composite materials are fabricated in the dental laboratory. They usually provide a long-lasting, yet cosmetic, result and may prevent future structural damages. Dental fillings that are placed directly within the mouth during a dental visit are called direct fillings.
Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss and bone loss. These procedures will enhance your smile since the dental implant will become a part of you. Another advantage of dental implants is the enhancement to your facial structure for a more youthful appearance since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, especially when patients have ill-fitting dentures.
If you struggle with many dental flaws, your dentist can create a custom treatment plan. This may include dental implants, veneers, crowns, bonding, and/or whitening.
