Cosmetic dentistry involves common procedures that a cosmetic dentist can handle from the comfort of their office. Most cosmetic dentistry involves improving the appearance of the teeth and smile.
Here are some of the popular procedures you may get from your cosmetic dentist:
- Teeth Whitening. This is a frequently requested service in most dentist offices. Cosmetic dentists use bleaching agents to get rid of discoloration on teeth, resulting in a whiter appearance. It is a quick and non-invasive procedure. Patients can also use take-home kits they get from their dentist to maintain their white smiles.
- Dental Veneers. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of composite resin or porcelain that are bonded to the front of the tooth surface. They are used to fix problems with cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth. Veneers offer a durable and natural-looking solution to such problems.
- Dental Implants. These are a common solution for missing teeth. Implants consist of artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone through a surgical procedure. Implants are a foundation for replacing teeth or dental crowns.
- Dental bonding. Bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth and then shaping and polishing it. This works as a form of repair for decayed, chipped, or discolored teeth and improves the functionality of destroyed teeth.
