How Do I Know if Cosmetic Dentistry Is the Right Option for Me?

A lot of people wonder if cosmetic dentistry could be the option they have been searching for regarding obtaining good looking teeth. Some people are not positive what precisely cosmetic dentistry is and what the term means for them and their teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry, as opposed to general dentistry, is the field that a dentist will focus on the cosmetic and aesthetic look of a person's teeth. The procedures and focus they have been on ensuring that their patients have a smile they are proud to show off and will guide them in making the best decisions to obtain these results.

Do you have chipped or broken teeth?

For patients and individuals who may have chipped or broken teeth, a cosmetic dentist can recommend and suggest a few different procedures that can fix the issue. It will depend on how badly the teeth are chipped, and if the crack goes below the gumline.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a process that can help patients with chipped, cracked or worn down teeth that need to be restored. Using the dental bonding solution, the dentist can paint the bonding material on the tooth. After this is done, a light is used to dry the bonding material to the tooth. The material can also be customized to match the color of the patient's teeth so that no one will notice it.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers have become even more popular over the years. As dental technology has progressed and become more and more advanced, the strength and durability of the veneers have too. The fact that they are resistant to staining is also another feature that patients who choose this option continue to rave about their bright white new teeth!

Dental veneers are custom made for each person. After taking a mold of the teeth that the veneers will be covering, the lab will create the custom made shells that will be bonded to the teeth. The dentist will inspect the patient's mouth and compare the dental veneer to ensure it was crafted correctly and will be a good fit.

What other things can cosmetic dentistry help me with?

Cosmetic dentistry can help with everything from discolored teeth, worn down teeth, chipped and broken teeth, and misaligned teeth. All of these issues can be fixed and made like new with cosmetic dentistry.

Because cosmetic dentists are focused on making a person's teeth white and bright, they are aware of all the newest technologies that can help a person obtain the smile and white teeth they have been wanting. No longer will someone be shy of smiling for the camera after visiting a cosmetic dentist and following their instructions on which procedures and processes to do.
