Smiling at someone can change their entire day and when a person smiles at another person, they will end up feeling good and that feeling will last them throughout the rest of this day. However, a lot of people don’t enjoy smiling. This is because of their teeth. The good news is cosmetic dentistry can improve the way your teeth look, thus improving your smile.
About Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry involves fixing people’s teeth due to them being chipped, stained or broken. Some procedures involve repairing broken areas of the teeth, whitening teeth or reshaping teeth so they can line up properly with the teeth that are in a normal position. Orthodontic treatments involves treatments designed to correct bites, straighten teeth and to align bites, but cosmetic dentistry is more focused on how the teeth actually look.
One of the most common and popular procedures is bonding, which just happens to be the least expensive one. Bonding is for those who have a chipped tooth, discolored tooth or if they have gaps in-between their teeth. The area that will be repaired will be treated with a resin bonding material, and the dental professional will get the resin to mold into the desired shape. After that, the resin will become harden via a laser and then polishing may be done because this will help the area match the row or the surface.
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure. Bleaching strips or laser may be used to bleach stained teeth. Hydrogen peroxide is a common material that is used in the bleaching process. However, some dental professionals may choose to use carbamide peroxide.
A crown procedure is used for those who have damaged teeth or if they have a fractured tooth. The tooth or teeth are filed down to a specific size and then a porcelain crown is made. The crown may be made with another type of material. Afterwards, the cap is bonded in order to keep it in place.
Patients that have missing teeth or a missing tooth may want to look into dental implants, which is a procedure that involves replace the tooth’s root with an implant. The implant holds the tooth in place. There are many benefits that dental implants have to offer, such as improving a person’s speech and they can help make it easier for people to eat foot. Dental implants function and look just like real teeth, which is why they are a popular procedure among many patients.
Those are only a few cosmetic dental procedures available to patients. If you suffer from low self-esteem or you don’t like how your teeth look, then consider contacting Smiles on Broadway to discuss a complete smile makeover.
