Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular sectors of the dental world. There are many options in the dentistry world regarding cosmetic dentistry and a lot of trends that come in and out of style. Currently the most popular are teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth crowning, composite Bonding and full mouth reconstruction.

Each kind of cosmetic dentistry treatment has its own level of dedication ranging from something as simple as dental strips to something as complicated as having a lot of teeth removed.

Teeth whitening

The easiest form of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. While there are so many teeth whitening options, a lot of people buy whitening strips at a local drug store or grocery store. Due to this, people attempt to whiten their teeth without professional guidance. In order to acquire the best results, people will better benefit from products or services at our office.

Store-bought products will only lighten the teeth a shade or two. Some methods are using a soft toothbrush, flossing regularly be aware of foods and habits that can contribute to staining faster like smoking and drinking wine.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are another option if you want to totally revamp your teeth. It is a step up from teeth whitening but it is still not as invasive as having actual work done. Porcelain veneers are like getting all new teeth without the pain. Veneers snap or glue onto the already existing teeth and are totally undetectable. It can be offered in any range from one tooth to all of them.

Tooth crowning

Tooth crowning involves permanent changes within the mouth to keep a tooth from deteriorating or crumbling. Crowning is usually for the molars and for teeth that are not visible when someone smiles. In fact, dental crowns are much more difficult to notice than they were in the past.

Composite bonding

Composite bonding is another fun cosmetic dental procedure. Bonding uses resin to change the shade of the teeth, help with discoloration, fill in large cracks or fill large spaces between teeth.  The resin can also stop the rot and keep the teeth strong.

Full mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is for anyone unhappy with their overall mouth, how everything is structured or if their teeth are long gone. A full mouth reconstruction can really be anything from changing the way a person bites, uses their muscles or how their teeth look.

Acquire the perfect smile you desire

With the advancements in dental technology, it is now possible to increase the precision of cosmetic dentistry treatments with computers. There are many advancements in the last several years and the time it takes to complete a treatment is shrinking. The current trends are benefiting from 3D options.
