Cosmetic dentistry has made significant advances in the last few years, giving a wide range of options to improve your smile. From teeth whitening treatments, to dental bonding, to Invisalign, to dental veneers, cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance and function of your natural teeth. Here are some of the most popular dental cosmetic procedures.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Teeth whitening is a non-surgical procedure that can be performed in a single session. Dr. Bacon will remove the buildup of plaque and tartar from each tooth to restore your teeth's natural appearance. This lays the groundwork for the next process: teeth whitening treatment. A bleaching agent is applied to achieve a lighter shade of color. It is natural for our teeth to become worn out and stained from exposure to food and drinks. This doesn't mean you should skimp on oral hygiene; you'll still need to maintain your brushing and flossing routine.
Dental bonding is a procedure that repairs the damage done to your teeth. It can also fill gaps between the teeth and may help lengthen a tooth. Our skilled specialist, , will apply a composite resin that fills in the cracks in your tooth, restoring your smile in the process. But there's more to dental bonding than just aesthetics. It can also help make chewing easier and protect your teeth from further damage. Tooth bonding only works for teeth with minor injuries. Severe damage and decay may require a more comprehensive procedure, such as a dental implant.
Dental veneers are a cosmetic solution for chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth. They are made from high-quality dental materials such as porcelain. They can fix many aesthetic issues, such as cracks, gaps, and discolorations. Dental veneers are often confused with dental crowns. The latter can reinforce the entire tooth structure, while dental veneers only provide a cosmetic improvement. You can also opt for a more temporary solution, such as removable dental veneers, to mask any aesthetic issues in your natural teeth. Do keep in mind that it can be slightly challenging to eat with removable veneers.
Invisalign is a popular alternative to conventional braces that are used to move teeth into the correct positions. The orthodontic appliance uses a gradual force to move the teeth but without brackets or metal wires. When done right, Invisalign can make your teeth appear more aesthetically pleasing and in their correct positions. Results with Invisalign are often quicker compared to regular braces. It is also discreet and barely noticeable by onlookers, making it the perfect solution for younger patients such as teenagers. Our dentists will take various scans of your teeth to help create custom-designed clear aligners for a perfect fit. A major advantage of Invisalign is the level of comfort compared to traditional braces. You may feel mild discomfort as Invisalign applies pressure to your teeth, but this will gradually improve after a few days. You should give us a call if you feel any significant pain or discomfort.
