What are the different types of cosmetic dentistry treatments?
Cosmetic dentistry has a wide variety of options for smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction, such as:
Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are prosthetic “caps” or “crowns” that are tooth-shaped, covering the weak teeth, misshapen or damaged teeth, or dental implants. They look like your natural teeth, also protecting your existing teeth from any further damage and helping you to restore that beautiful smile of yours.
Dental Bridges: Bridges are permanent or removable false teeth that help in bridging the gaps left behind by the loss of natural teeth. Bridges improve the way you look, making it easy for you to eat, prevent a bad bite, and avoid the surrounding teeth from drifting out of its position.
Veneers:Veneers are durable wafer-thin porcelain shells that are placed in the front of a tooth to improve its shape and color. Veneers can fix cosmetic defects like chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth. Veneers are customized and tinted to match the color of the neighboring teeth. Dental veneers are made of porcelain or resin composite materials.
Dental implants:Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed beneath the jawbone and act as an artificial tooth root. This post fuses with the natural bone, providing the base for artificial teeth like bridges, crowns, or dentures.
Dentures: Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and also for the surrounding tissues. You can get all your teeth or just some of your teeth replaced.
Bonding:In bonding, the dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth, which is hardened using a special light. It repairs and covers the teeth that are fractured, decayed, chipped, discolored, or misshapen.
