Is there anything about your smile that you wish to improve? Are your teeth crooked, broken, or chipped? Does your smile appear yellow or stained? Maybe your teeth appear too small because of the excessive amount of gum tissue showing? A qualified cosmetic dentist has the solution for these and a host of other smile imperfections. Here is a brief description of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments today.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are fitted to the fronts of teeth. Using skill and artistry, your cosmetic dentist can apply veneers to mask the appearance of broken or damaged teeth. Veneers can also be used to brighten the appearance of your smile, and sometimes they are used as "instant orthodontics" to make minor corrections to a crooked smile. Tooth whitening is perhaps the fastest and most popular way to achieve dramatic smile enhancement results. While at-home bleaching kits are effective to a degree, patients who visit their cosmetic dentist for tooth whitening often see a more dramatic result. In just one brief session, you can get rid of stains and discoloration caused by coffee, soda, tea, red wine, and certain medications. Patients who whiten their teeth often find they look younger, healthier, and more attractive than they had anticipated.
In recent years, the United States has seen a huge increase in the number of people who wish to undergo cosmetic dentistry treatments, from porcelain veneers and tooth whitening, to cosmetic dental bonding and even laser gum recontouring. With the advent of newer and more effective anesthetic methods and dental payment plans, a beautiful, movie-star smile is truly within your reach.
