Cosmetic Dentistry improves the appearance of teeth, gum, bite or smile by changing the color, position, shape, size, and alignment of the teeth.
Veneers, Tooth whitening, Porcelain Crowns and Smile Makeover are some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures.
COMPOSITE VENEERS ARE AFFORDABLE RESTORATIONS COVERED BY MOST DENTAL PLANS.
Veneers are applied to the entire front surface of the tooth, and make teeth look better by changing the color or shape of the teeth. They can also be used to close spaces between teeth.
Veneers are usually made of porcelain or composite resin.Tooth Whitening
MAINTAIN YOUR YEARLY CHECKUP AND CLEANING APPOINTMENTS TO RECEIVE A FREE TEETH WHITENING KIT WITH YOUR VISIT.
Tooth Whitening (bleaching) is restoration of natural tooth shade. Restoration of natural underlying tooth shade is possible by removing surface stains (e.g. coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco).
Whitening your teeth can be done in the dental office or at your home using a bleaching kit provided by your dentist. The kit contains of custom made plastic trays that fit on your teeth and some whitening gel. Once home you simply put some of the gel material in the tray and wear it on your teeth 15-30 minutes a day, for a week or two. The gel material used to whiten teeth is Carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide may be less effective than hydrogen peroxide , but has fewer side effects.
BONDING IS ONE OF THE EASIEST AND LEAST EXPENSIVE COSMETIC DENTAL PROCEDURES.
A composite resin is bonded to the tooth or teeth, then shaped and polished to match the adjacent teeth to make the smile look better.
Many times bonding is used to improve the appearance of a chipped, discolored, or severely decayed tooth or teeth.
A smile makeover (smile design) is improving appearance of the smile by cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental veneers, composite bondings, tooth whitening , porcelain crowns and bridges.
White fillings look natural. Many people don't like the aesthetics of silver fillings.
White fillings also make the tooth more resistant to the fracture by bonding to the remaining tooth structure.
