Cosmetic dentistry includes all the procedures and treatments that can help patients improve the appearance of their teeth and their smiles so they feel more confident about the way they look. Many cosmetic treatments also help restore teeth or improve oral health.
Cosmetic dentistry includes an array of treatment options. that can be performed singly or in combinations to suit each patient’s unique needs and treatment goals Some of the most treatments popular include:
Tooth-colored fillings are restorations that are made of durable composite resin materials which can be tinted to match the surrounding tooth material so the restoration blends in with neighboring teeth and is virtually impossible to detect by anyone other than a dentist. Unlike metal fillings that contain mercury, composite fillings contain no metals, plus they won’t turn dark and black like a metal filling can. The composites used in tooth-colored fillings are “filled” into the tooth surface, creating a more secure and lasting bond with the natural tooth to prevent bacteria-causing decay from leaching under the restoration.
A smile makeover is a customized plan of care that includes several treatments to address multiple aesthetic issues. Smile makeovers are designed to help every patient get the look they want so they can feel great about their teeth and their smiles.
Yes, some cosmetic treatments can improve a person’s overall oral health. For instance, orthodontic treatment including Invisalign helps correct alignment issues that can make it more difficult to keep teeth clean and free of decay- and disease-causing bacteria. Other treatments like bridges and implants help patients retain their bite balance following tooth loss so they can prevent issues like chronic jaw pain and headaches, as well as uneven tooth wear.
