Cosmetic Dentistry includes a variety of dental procedures aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth or smile.
Teeth Whitening – Whitening procedures can effectively brighten the smiles of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are common causes of stained teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. More and more people today are choosing tooth whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food, drink and tobacco stains.
Dental Crown – Over time our teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as cavities, cracking and discoloration. If your dentist observes a tooth that is decayed, weakened or cracked a crown may be a good option. A crown can also restore a tooth that has had a root canal or replace a large filling to prevent a broken tooth.
Dental Bridge – Bridges are a natural-looking replacement for one or more missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made from porcelain, gold, or metal alloys to ensure that they are strong and durable.
Dental Implant – Before development of dental implants, dentures and bridges were the only alternatives to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Dental Implants are titanium replacements for teeth that are anchored into the bone and are designed to mimic the tooth root. The dental implant acts as a foundation for an artificial tooth. An implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or as the support for a bridge or removable denture. Dental Implants require the same diligent care that you give your natural teeth.
