Types of Cosmetic Dentistry to Improve Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses treatments which employ methods of dental care that are centered on enhancing the appearance of the mouth, which includes the teeth and your smile. The industry itself was responsible for generating total revenue of four billion dollars in 2018 alone. The growing population is also expected to increase demand and further expand the growth of the industry.

Cosmetic dentistry has gained much popularity over the years, partly because of the increasing number of celebrities advocating for these treatments all over the world. Celebrities wear bright smiles as an accessory on the red carpet and on the screen. Most people have tried to follow suit and also feel it is safer to opt for cosmetic dentistry approaches.

Our dentist will be able to guide you best on which treatment to get for yourself. Before undergoing any procedure, you should make sure you understand the process and its pros and cons of it. Here are some of the most popular treatments at our clinic.

Teeth whitening

It’s very normal for teeth to become stained or discolored over the years due to aging, or smoking or from improper brushing techniques.  Some foods are also responsible for staining your teeth more heavily than others. This treatment can be done at home or in the dental office and does not take too much time. Consult your dentist so they can verify if your teeth can be bleached.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are custom made and can be plastered to the front of the tooth. It’s a thin shelling covering that is made of porcelain. They can help cover a chipped tooth, a crooked tooth or even fill in any gaps in the teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are metal devices which can replace missing teeth. They are surgically placed in the jawbone where the missing tooth is. It is designed to replicate the purpose of the root of the tooth, and is helpful in anchoring dentures, crowns and bridges.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are also known as caps and can be customized to the individual’s needs by a cosmetic dentist. They are made of porcelain or acrylic fused with metal. Crowns are useful for those who have chipped, decayed, broken or poorly shaped teeth.
