Some people are unhappy with their smile because their teeth are stained or they have a few broken or chipped teeth. They can get their smile back with some cosmetic dentistry, which will have them smiling again in no time.


Beautify your smile with cosmetic dentistry

If you are interested in fixing your smile, here are a few ways cosmetic dentistry can help.

Teeth whitening

This is a popular procedure for people with yellow or stained teeth. It is also a simple procedure you can ask your dentist to perform during your next dental exam. Your dentist will use whitening solutions that contain hydrogen peroxide to clean the surface of your teeth. This will return them to their natural whiteness.

However, the effects of teeth whitening fade after a few months and you will need to see your dentist regularly to have them whitened again.

Your dentist can also make you a mouthpiece and provide you with a solution to whiten your teeth at home. The whitening process takes a few weeks when you do it from home because the solution provided will not be as strong as the one they use in their office.

Dental veneers

These are used to fix crooked, broken, discolored and gap teeth. Your dentist will bond a thin piece of porcelain that is molded to fit the contours of your mouth to cover up your dental imperfections.

Veneers are very popular in cosmetic dentistry because they can be used to cover up stains, tooth gaps, chipped teeth and crooked teeth.

Getting veneers requires two trips to your dentist. During your first visit, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth then send them out to a laboratory to get made. During the second visit, the veneers are put in place with dental cement, which holds them in place.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are used to cover a damaged or missing tooth, giving your teeth a natural look. They can be made from composite resin, ceramic, metals and porcelain fused to metals. Dental crowns made from metal are used for the back teeth because of their appearance and the fact that they are the most durable type of crowns. Dentists recommend dental crowns if other cosmetic dentistry procedures cannot provide the desired results.

Like veneers, getting dental crowns requires two visits to the dentist. The first visit involves taking an impression of your teeth and shaving off part of the teeth that will be covered by the crown. Your dentist will create a temporary crown to cover the tooth until the permanent crown has been made. During your second visit, the permanent crown is put into place, helping to restore your smile.

Enamel shaping

This procedure involves contouring or removing enamel to improve the way your teeth look. Enamel shaping is done to change the shape, length and position of your teeth to fix crooked teeth, bite problems and chipped teeth.

Dental implants

This is a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure for people with missing teeth that do not want to wear dentures. It is also used by dentists if dental bridges, which are used to replace missing teeth with artificial ones, do not work.

Conclusion

Cosmetic dentistry is very popular these days because it can help fix the appearance of your teeth and give you some extra confidence in the process. If you don’t like the appearance of your smile, talk to your dentist about which procedure will help restore your smile.
