Improving your smile with cosmetic dental services

Many people notice things about their smile that they do not like. Here are popular cosmetic dental services that can help transform the smile.

1. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments provide a way to improve the color of a patient’s teeth. These treatments involve using whitening compounds like hydrogen peroxide to get rid of stains deep within teeth.  

In-office whitening treatments should not be confused with the over-the-counter whitening products sold at grocery and drug stores. Dentists use significantly more concentrated products that require professional supervision. A single in-office whitening treatment can improve the hue of a patient’s teeth by up to eight shades. That is often enough to get most people to their preferred shade of white, but those with significantly discolored teeth might need additional sessions.

2. Composite bonding

Composite bonding includes using resins to rebuild and restore damaged, deformed, or discolored teeth. It is a safe approach that typically does not involve using an anesthetic. The composite is applied to the tooth being treated in layers, and a curing light is used to harden it. A tooth can be restored with composite bonding in about 45 minutes.

3. Crowns

Crowns are commonly used restorations in dentistry. A crown hides flaws on the visible part of a tooth, improving its appearance and protecting it from bite forces. The crown also protects the tooth from bacteria and acids in the mouth.

Placing a crown on a tooth typically involves two dental visits. The first visit includes preparing the patient’s teeth by taking off enamel from its sides to create a better fit. An impression of the person’s tooth is taken, and a temporary crown is placed on it. The mold is forwarded to a lab where restorations like crowns are made. It takes a couple of weeks for the finished restoration to get back to the dentist.

The second visit includes removing the temporary crown and placing the custom crown. Alterations are made as needed to ensure a proper fit.

4. Veneers

Veneers were popularized by movie stars using them to enhance their smiles while filming. A veneer is a restoration that covers the front part of a tooth. It hides flaws on the tooth like stains, chips, and deformities.

Anyone’s smile can be transformed by placing multiple veneers on the teeth. The process does require removing small portions of the teeth being fitted.
