Cosmetic dentistry has done mainstream. It’s no longer a highly guarded secret of celebrities. You no longer have to grapple with the undesirable effects of broken, stained, or poorly aligned teeth.
Through the different orthodontics treatments, you can flash a smile with gleaming teeth that oozes confidence. So what are some of your options for cosmetic dental work?
Here are some of the different cosmetic dental procedures:
The preferred option for fixing crooked teeth! Invisalign aligners are the appropriate alternative to metal wires or braces for both teens and adults. This cosmetic dentistry treatment uses a series of customized, clear, and removable appliances, also known as aligners. The best attribute about Invisalign is that it’s virtually undetectable which means that hardly anyone will notice that you are straightening your teeth. You should wear your aligners for around 22 hours each day only removing them for regular oral hygiene, or when drinking and eating.
Whitening or bleaching is a highly popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. The procedure’s relative low cost and ease of access makes it an attractive option. Unlike other treatments, whitening is less invasive.
A cosmetic tooth bleaching procedure brightens and whitens your teeth from staining and/or discoloration. Depending on the specific whitening treatment Dr. Kimberley Barclay recommends, you can achieve desired results by two to ten shades.
A veneer is a thin shell made out of composite material or porcelain. A dentist plans and creates the veneer, and then cements it to your tooth’s front side. Veneers are effective at covering spaces between the teeth or treating dental conditions such as chipped teeth, discolored teeth, and crooked teeth.
If teeth whitening isn’t an option – perhaps because of stubborn intrinsic tooth staining or other functional concerns – dental veneers might be the answer. Nevertheless, compared to bleaching, the process of veneer application is an invasive one. It calls for permanent alteration of your teeth.
In dentistry, bonding refers to the process of attaching dental materials such as veneers, crowns, and fillings to the teeth. Cosmetic bonding is an affordable procedure that’s handy at getting rid of crooked edges, cracked chipped teeth, and tooth decay.
