Cosmetic Dentistry – Enhance Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry is fast becoming the most popular form of aesthetic enhancement. Unlike plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry isn't a major operation. One or two appointment is now all you need to emerge with the smile you've always wanted; no pain, no strain and most importantly, no time taken out of your busy day. The results are immediate and dramatic.
Cosmetic dentistry is the intricate combination of art and dental science. It encompasses several dental treatments, all of which are designed to enhance the appearance of your smile.
|Cosmetic dentistry treatments include:
- Teeth Whitening
Whitening your teeth can transform the appearance of your smile. It rejuvenates teeth by helping to reverse the effects of yellowing agents.
- Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial (metal) tooth root that is placed in the jawbone to replace a missing natural tooth. A crown is then placed over the implant to form a structure that closely resembles the look and function of a natural tooth.
Porcelain veneersVeneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. By placing glass-like ceramic porcelain on the surface of teeth, dentists can provide patients with bright, straight, and natural looking smiles.
- Crowns and Bridges
A crown encircles the existing tooth and restores it to its natural form. It is used to strengthen a damaged tooth. A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth.
Porcelain inlays and onlaysPorcelain inlays or onlays refer to indirect fillings made of porcelain that fit into or onto the affected tooth. Their purpose is to make the tooth stronger by holding it together while retaining a natural aesthetically pleasing colour. They are used in instances when there is deficient tooth structure to support a filling, but the tooth is still in a condition that does not require a crown.
Tooth-coloured restorationsCEREC Porcelain Restorations are a ceramic reconstruction. The process allows for restoration in a single appointment and the end result is a perfectly bonded porcelain crown.
Composite bondingA technique that uses materials that match the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth. This technique is used when only a fraction of a tooth needs replacement.
Previously, little could be done to treat crooked, chipped or stained teeth. Today, through the continual advancements in the field of cosmetic dentistry, your dream smile is closer than you think.
