A smile is one of the essential features. Dentistry helps in improving and achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile using various treatment options. Unlike general dental care, cosmetic dentistry is not only a science but also an art. The dentist enhances your smile, also helping in restoring and maintaining treatments for optimal dental health through cosmetic dental care.
What are the types of cosmetic dentistry treatments?
There are certain types of cosmetic dentistry procedures available; they are as follows:
Composite Filling: A composite (white) filling is a type of dental filling material that helps restore teeth that are decayed, cracked, fractured, etc. The dentist removes the decayed or affected area of the tooth and fills it with the composite filling.
Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are customized shells made of porcelain that cover the front side of the teeth to change their shape and color. They give a better appearance along with a long-lasting bonding. It treats the chipped teeth, worn teeth, permanently stained teeth, teeth with gaps, and improves poorly shaped or slightly crooked teeth.
Inlays or Onlays: Inlays or indirect fillings are fillings that last for a long time and so are added to teeth with decay or any other damage to their structure.
Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a highly recommended and practiced cosmetic dental treatment. Through teeth whitening, you can easily get rid of stains or discoloration of the teeth. This cosmetic procedure can be either performed in the cosmetic dentist's office for faster results or can be carried out at home with the kit and instructions provided by the dentist.
Crowns & Bridges: Crowns are caps that are made of porcelain, resin, or ceramic materials. The crown covers the tooth entirely and helps in restoring its shape and appearance.
If there is a gap made by one or more missing teeth, then a bridge could be of great help. The bridges are also usually made of porcelain, gold, alloys, or a combination of these materials. They are bonded with the help of the adjacent teeth, and thus, they fill the missing teeth gap.
