Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

 There are currently many cosmetic dentistry procedures available to help you attain the elegant smile of your dreams. A few options for you to consider include:

Replaces the broken, chipped, and discolored parts of teeth through the use of a special composite material. Composite bonding can also be used to close spaces between teeth.

Used to replace missing teeth, dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements.

Adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth or teeth to cover gaps, cracks, and chips in existing teeth and also to improve the color of the teeth.

Inlays, onlays, and overlays are also called indirect fillings. Unlike fillings, they are bonded over the tooth and are made of dental porcelain, so they look natural. They are a longer-lasting type of filling that is added to teeth with tooth decay or other structural damage. Inlays, inlays and overlays work in a similar way to dental crowns, but are a more conservative and simple procedure. The difference between the procedures is their size – if they extend over one or more cusps, they are onlays, if they do not they are classed as inlays. Each serves a slightly different purpose, with inlays being used to cover small holes and onlays and overlays used to treat more serious tooth decay.

The most commonly recommended and practiced cosmetic dental procedure, tooth whitening removes stains on teeth; the cosmetic procedure can be performed at home or in your cosmetic dentist’s office.
