Cosmetic dentists perform procedures that restore smiles, repair damaged teeth, and provide the confidence you need to look and feel your best when you have concerns with the appearance of your teeth. There are a few different procedures and treatments that address several concerns at once, and a good dentist can skillfully use a cosmetic solution to address multiple issues:
A common cosmetic procedure, veneers are typically formed of a composite material, often including porcelain. They resist staining and are ideal for presenting an even and bright smile. A veneer covers the front of a tooth and can be used to address chipped teeth, uneven edges, and discoloration all at once. This makes veneers a popular procedure at a cosmetic dentist’s office.
Crowns have come a long way in recent years, providing an alternative or companion treatment to dental fillings. Crowns are used to cover broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth. They can be used in conjunction with a filling when the majority of a tooth has been either filled or removed. They are used to cover the remaining surface of the tooth all around, strengthening it and providing a complete surface for speech and eating. They can be made from composite materials that closely match the natural shade of teeth.
Dental implants are a cosmetic and restorative measure that can fully repair an extracted or missing tooth. Anchored to the jawbone like tooth roots, implants can replace a tooth that has been removed due to decay or even a tooth that has been missing for years.
