Cosmetic Dental Treatments to Fix My Smile

Cosmetic DentalIf you are dissatisfied with your smile for any reason, do not assume you are powerless. It is now possible to significantly enhance your look and confidence with cosmetic dental treatments. There are several cosmetic dental treatments on the market that can rectify damaged, aged or unsightly teeth, gums and other aspects of the mouth. Here are some specific cosmetic dental treatments for smile repair.

Smile Repair Options

Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile

When people find that their teeth are no longer a beautiful shade of white, they do not need to despair. Teeth whitening can brighten up a smile fairly quickly. There is no sense living life with yellow, brown or fading teeth. Instead, choose teeth whitening to enhance the smile and brighten the shade of the teeth. This cosmetic dental treatment can help make people appear younger and greatly boost confidence.

Teeth whitening eliminates those ugly stains from the surface and depth of the tooth enamel. The end result is a gorgeous white smile that gives someone the youthful and healthy look he or she desires. In-office teeth whitening typically takes an hour or less. Thus, there is no need to worry about a lengthy or elaborate procedure that chews up free time. Remedies that the patient takes home may take more time over several weeks or months.

Porcelain Veneers

This cosmetic dental treatment is ideal for those who are looking to significantly alter their smile. It also helps patients hide the flaws in their teeth, gums and other portions of the mouth. The professional will custom craft the veneers for each unique patient. It is important to make use of layers of porcelain that match tooth color.

This high-quality porcelain material attaches to the front portion of teeth that is on display when the patient smiles. The end result is perfectly shaped teeth with a lovely hue.

Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign

In other cases, Invisalign® can discreetly correct crooked teeth without causing much pain. Crooked teeth are an issue as they are unattractive and make eating somewhat challenging. Crooked teeth also run the risk of traping food more easily and allowing plaque to form, leading to a higher risk of infection.

While effective, metal braces are cumbersome and more noticeable than some people prefer. Fortunately, Invisalign® is a discreet option that gradually moves the teeth without the need for brackets or wires. This system makes use of trays that are nearly invisible. Patients can remove Invisalign® clear braces at any point. They really do shift teeth back into place in surprisingly little time.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding repairs damaged, discolored or decayed teeth with a material that looks like the color of your tooth enamel. The dentist drills away from the decayed portion of the tooth implements the composite to the surface of the tooth and sculpts it into the proper shape prior to using a high-intensity light for curing.

This process covers the tooth's damaged section, providing the appearance of a perfectly healthy tooth. This is an affordable and effective solution for those who have cracked, chipped, decayed and/or worn-down teeth.
