Cosmetic Dentistry is a sub-genre of dentistry that aims to create a positive change in the appearance of your teeth and smile. Cosmetic procedures are categorized as elective even though they are known to offer restorative benefits. Here, we will give details of all the different cosmetic dental procedures available in the market.
Dental implants are surgical components that sit on your jaw bone and allow for the placement of oral prosthetics such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. The dentist will drill a titanium screw into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. The screw is allowed to merge with the jawbone and allowed to heal before further treatment is carried out.
Veneers are thin, white-colored shells bonded to your front teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are an excellent option for people who have chipped or stained teeth. They also help reduce the gaps between teeth and add an extra dimension to your smile.
This is one of the most popular treatment options offered by cosmetic dentists. A teeth whitening procedure aims to enhance your smile by cleaning out the plaque and tartar to give you brighter teeth. It is usually carried out in a dental office where dentists use a bleaching agent to whiten your teeth by at least three shades.
An inlay is a piece of dental material fitted into the cavity after the dentist drills the decayed area of a tooth. On the other hand, an outlay is a cap-like structure fitted over the tooth when the cusp of the tooth is affected. They are used when a tooth doesn’t have decay or damage that can support a filling.
Besides offering an aesthetically appealing look, most of the procedures mentioned above can also restore your teeth, and in effect, your smile to keep you confident.
