COSMETIC DENTISTRY- A BASIC GUIDE TO GET YOU STARTED

Nothing puts a frown on your face more than a set of misaligned, cracked, yellowed, broken, gummy, or missing teeth. Something as simple as talking or laughing may cause you to feel self-conscious if you’re worried about the state of your teeth, so in that regard, one of the best ways to bring back your confidence is to undergo cosmetic dentistry.

This typically concentrates on keeping your teeth healthy and free from degeneration as well as oral diseases, all while enhancing the appearance of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry also gives you a better bite with the help of treatments such as teeth bleaching, porcelain veneers, and even dentures.

To that end, here are different treatments that dentists may suggest depending on your non-dental factors.

But First, What are the Non-Dental Factors to Consider

  • Facial Height

  • Facial Width

  • Lip Volume

  • Age

  • Skin and Lip Color

  • Lost or Missing Teeth


Different Treatments for Cosmetic Dentistry

  1. Bleaching and Whitening


Every person aims to have whiter teeth so they can grin from ear to ear without any insecurities holding them back. However, your pearly whites can darken and become stained over the years from a number of things, including beverages, food, cigarettes, and more. In that regard, a treatment such as bleaching or deep whitening can brighten your smile as the procedure serves to turn back the clock and bring back the milky white pearls you used to flash proudly. To that end, it is a fundamental treatment that can help your teeth attain a lighter shade for a happier smile.

  1. Dental Bonding


If you are looking for something to bridge the gap between your confidence and self-esteem? This is where dental bonding comes into play, wherein small oral corrections are placed in between the cracks of your teeth using a composite material called resin. It coats the area of your teeth and seamlessly blends with the rest of your teeth for an all-natural looking smile. Beyond recovering the appeal of your teeth, this procedure can also be used to fix dental cavities and protect delicate teeth. Dental bonding is an excellent choice for those who are not ready to commit to ceramic veneers.

  1. Porcelain Veneers


Porcelain veneers offer additional strength and assistance to your teeth, aiming to cover defects like enamel, chipped tooth, discolouration, and uneven teeth, as well as irregular spacing. Beyond boosting the aesthetic value of your smile, it also brings restorative functions that reduce the pain you may feel from a damaged tooth. This is ideal for long-term use and protection as veneers can last for as long as a decade, allowing you to maintain a healthy and reliable set of teeth. Not to mention, the thin, durable porcelain shells can surely give you an award-winning, movie-star smile!

  1. Dental Crowns and Bridges


A dental crown is used to cover a tooth that is discoloured, cracked, or densely filled. Available in ceramic, resin, and sometimes even in gold, crowns are ideal for preventing further tooth decay as it restores teeth and prevents them from cracking or splitting apart. The procedure is also used after root canal treatments as teeth are prone to fractures after the process. It can also serve to replace a missing tooth. Dental bridges, on the other hand, are ceramic structures that are fused between two or more porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth to serve as anchors. To that end, both offer to restore structure and balance to your teeth.
