How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Life

Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry can have an incredible impact on your life, improving your appearance and providing you with a level of confidence you may not have thought was possible. These are just a few of the procedures that can improve your smile – and possibly even your outlook on life.

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

These are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures that have proven to be very popular.

  • Veneers – These are outer coverings, or shells, that are colored and shaped in the exact way you want. The procedure involves removing a portion of an existing tooth (or teeth) and replacing it with the new shell. This procedure can be performed on many teeth at once.
  • Crowns – A crown can also be custom designed in the size, shape or color you want. Before the crown is inserted, your dentist will clear the tooth of any damage or decay.
  • Bonding – This is a very convenient and fast way to fix teeth that have been damaged. The damaged area is first removed and then replaced with a composite resin that matches the color of the surrounding teeth. This is a great way to restore teeth that have been decayed, chipped or broken.
  • Implants – A dental implant provides a high-quality, permanent fix for teeth that are missing.
  • Stained teeth – This is one of the best ways to improve your smile. There are several different ways to remove stains or correct any problems with mis-colored teeth.
