Visit a Cosmetic Dentist for these Procedures

A Cosmetic Dentist should be the first person you talk to when you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile. These are professionals who specialize in improving the way a patient's smile looks. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, the smile you have always dreamed of only requires a couple of visits to the dentist.

Procedures often performed by a cosmetic dentist

Here are some of the more popular procedures performed by a cosmetic dentist:

1. Teeth whitening

This is arguably the top procedure performed by cosmetic dentists. The demand for whiter teeth is so high, it has even created an entire industry of over-the-counter whitening products.

There is a huge difference between whitening teeth with over-the-counter products and getting it done by a dentist though. Dentists use products that have more potent whitening agents and are not available over the counter. Top brand over-the-counter whiteners can improve the color of a person's teeth over the course of a few months. But, a teeth whitening session performed by a dentist can leave a person's teeth 10 shades whiter.

Teeth whitening is an effective solution that eliminates most types of stains and discoloration like those caused by tobacco use or drinking coffee.

2. Veneers

Not all stains can be removed with teeth whitening treatments. Stains caused by tooth decay or fluorosis are often resistant to bleaching agents. When that is the case, veneers can be used to restore the person's smile.

A veneer is a thin tooth cover that is used to hide flaws on the front-facing part of a tooth. These dental prosthetics are responsible for many of the amazing smiles seen on popular TV shows and movies. Veneers are versatile devices and can also be used to fix chipped teeth, crooked teeth and gaps between teeth.

Getting veneers often requires two visits to the dentist. During the installation, a small portion of the patient's enamel is filed off. It makes the person's smile look natural when the veneers are attached.

3. Orthodontics

A cosmetic dentist also works with patients who are dealing with a host of teeth alignment issues. Traditional braces were the standard way to straighten teeth for quite a while, but there are subtle ways to do that now thanks to clear aligners and ceramic braces.

These orthodontic tools all work by applying a constant force to the wearer's teeth. Over time, this force pushes the teeth into the desired position.

4. Crowns

Crowns are the most versatile prosthetic used by dentists. They can be used to fix a wide range of dental issues and they are often used in combination with other devices like bridges and dentures. Crowns protect a tooth as well as restore its appearance.

When a patient has a tooth that has been severely damaged by trauma or has been disfigured by tooth decay, crowns are a great way to save the tooth and restore its look.

A cosmetic dentist will improve the way your teeth look
