Keep reading to learn more about some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today.
Tooth whitening is a fast, easy, and dramatic way to improve your smile. Over time, stains accumulate on the teeth that cause them to darken. Your dentist can offer in-office procedures to lighten the color of your teeth in under an hour for an instantaneous boost to your looks.
Veneers cover the fronts of the teeth with thin porcelain shells. These shells are shaped and colored to create your ideal smile. Veneers can correct minor cosmetic damage including chips, cracks, worn teeth, gaps, and stains. The porcelain material protects your teeth and resists staining for a long-lasting cosmetic solution.
Missing teeth leave gaps in your smile and affect your dental health. Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement technology today. Your cosmetic dentist surgically places titanium posts into the gums to act as an artificial tooth root. A crown, bridge, or even dentures can be attached to the post to restore the appearance and function of one or many missing teeth.
Orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign corrects the alignment of your teeth for a healthier and more appealing smile. You are never too old for orthodontics, and many adults are choosing to correct malocclusions to enhance their facial appearance and enjoy better dental health. Invisalign makes it easy to discreetly improve your tooth alignment without disrupting your everyday life.
