Types of Cosmetic Dentistry for Your Mouth

Posted on 1/10/2017 by Na Xu
A dental implant inside of a patients jaw.Have you been trying to figure out if cosmetic dentistry would be good for you? It may be something to consider, if you have minor imperfections you want to make look better. If you have major imperfections, you may need more than cosmetic dentistry to fix them. Here are a few types of cosmetic dentistry that may help you get the smile you want.

Common Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Whitening your teeth is more than just to make your teeth look healthier. It can also boost your confidence, and make you appear more attractive to potential partners. Plus, it can give you the benefit of being able to see when something goes awry with your teeth more readily.

Bonding is when a tooth-colored substance is bonded to your teeth to cover imperfections and fill in gaps. It can be used to cover things like an uneven space between your teeth, discolorations, and cracks and fractures.

If you have teeth that need to be completely covered, you can opt for shells that cover the front, known as veneers, or you can have the teeth completely covered with crowns. These need to be cared for and used gently, but can give you a long lasting smile you can be proud of.

Implants are also a type of cosmetic dentistry that also crosses over into restorative dentistry. They are used to replace missing teeth to help keep your jaw healthy and strong, plus allow you to eat and chew like you once did with your original teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry allows you to feel better about your smile, and to maintain the overall health of your mouth. If you want to know more about specific options that may be a good fit for you, contact our office today!
