Traditional dentistry focuses on good oral hygiene and preventing oral disease. By contrast, cosmetic dentistry is much more associated with improving the appearance of your teeth and your smile. The nature of general dentistry is a necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry tends to be more of an elective process. There are also some restorative elements involved with cosmetic dentistry. For instance, dental fillings with a cosmetic purpose in mind, use resins which are the same color as surrounding teeth. In the past, a wide variety of metals were used, and these created visible dark spots in the mouth.
Dental fillings today can be accomplished through porcelain and other composite materials which are much more like your natural teeth. There are a number of other tooth-colored dental materials now being used which can help improve the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is often undertaken by patients who have a cracked or chipped tooth, and wish to restore their natural smiles. People who have acquired discoloration on their teeth through aging, smoking, or lack of brushing, may turn to teeth whitening. There are a number of ways that teeth whitening can help to restore the original pearly white color of your teeth. In fact, that’s really the whole point of cosmetic dentistry – to restore the appearance of your teeth and your smile. This in turn, can give your self-confidence a major boost, and your sense of well-being will also be elevated. These are the primary aims of cosmetic dentistry.
The first thing we’ll do when you consult with us about cosmetic dentistry is discuss your idea of the perfect smile. Then we will formulate a plan with you to try to achieve that ideal. One of the methods we may use to accomplish that is through bonding, in which modern bonding materials will help to improve your smile. We can ensure that the perfect match is made between the bonding agent and your natural teeth color, so no one will notice the difference. Another way that your smile might be improved is through the use of porcelain veneers. Veneers are now considered to be one of the best ways of enhancing or completely rebuilding your teeth. They are designed to improve the shape, color, texture, and general appearance of your teeth. Veneers are often used to cover chipped teeth, cracked teeth, discolored teeth, or broken teeth. We frequently arrange for teeth-whitening with our patients, whether accomplished in our office or at home. Teeth-whitening can be extremely effective, and it’s a safe and fast process. It has a very low incidence of sensitivity, so it has become popular among our patients. We even offer a free whitening-for-life service, which you can ask our specialists about. People who need some kind of teeth straightening procedure will often opt for Invisalign aligners. These are the clear alternative to braces, which are virtually invisible when worn. Unlike braces, they are extremely comfortable when you wear them, and can easily be removed for cleaning. You can eat whatever you want with these aligners in, and there is no stigma attached to them like there would be for metal braces.
