How Cosmetic Dentistry Improves Your Smile
Some people like to smile naturally, however, if you have discolored teeth, crooked, and unevenly spaced, you will try to hide them by all means necessary. Thanks to cosmetic dentists at Vita Dental Spring you can now have straighter, whiter, and more attractive teeth. There are so many options to choose from which will enable you to achieve the results that you desire.
Being unhappy and uncomfortable with your teeth can cause self-consciousness and dental health problems. To avoid these mental and physical maladies, a simple visit to the dentist will provide you with the proper cosmetic dentistry procedures necessary to make the important changes that you need. Moreover, it’s good because there will be a reduced risk of periodontal disease because damaged or cracked teeth will no longer be vulnerable to infection.
Here are some of the many cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you to improve and complete your smile.
If you have “silver” fillings, on the front tooth, you can replace them with composite fillings that are tooth-colored. The fillings are designed to match to the color of your teeth. And that’s why they are more preferable by clients than the traditional amalgam. Suppose you are unhappy with the fillings that you currently have or you have chipped and broken fillings, composite fillings are more natural looking and of a better quality.
Dentists can use a bonding material that matches your teeth color and structure to rectify the gaps between the teeth or to improve the outlook of a cracked, stained, broken, or chipped teeth. A single office visit to the dentist is enough to complete this procedure. Although bonding can last for quite some time, it can become stained, chipped, or simply wear down after a while.
Enamel Shaping and Contouring
This process involves altering the shape, the length, or position of teeth by contouring the dental enamel. The shaping of the enamel is often combined with bonding to rectify overlapping, crooked, irregular, and chipped teeth.
For poorly shaped or slightly crooked teeth, a custom-created “shell” made of porcelain is made to cover the front of the teeth to alter the color and shape. The veneers are buffed before cementing them in place. UV light beams help in hardening the cement, which safely secures the veneer to the teeth. Veneers have an advantage of lasting longer than bonding to cover your dental imperfections. Here at Vita Dental Spring, we have the perfect options for every individual.
Also known as “caps,” crowns are a tooth-colored protection that encloses the entire tooth. They are special -made for each tooth restore cracked teeth and offer protection from further damage. Crowns stop bacteria from growing into teeth thus lowering the risk of a nerve infection.
Crowns are also used for cosmetic improvements on an extremely discolored tooth. The damaged tooth will be corrected and eventually look like the adjacent healthy teeth thus providing a better smile.
Dental implants replace missing teeth permanently. A titanium rod is grafted into the structure of the jaw bone securing it in place. The bone fuses with the metal rod, to provide a stable and strong root, to enable a prosthetic crown to cover.
In the end, the dental implant will look and feel permanent as an attractive improvement for missing teeth.
Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office is the only way to rid the teeth of stubborn stains that have amassed over time. Tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea, and certain medications have a strong discoloring effect that can only be removed through professional bleaching.
The process is much stronger than using the over-the-counter products available in drug stores.
A mouthpiece tray that is custom made to fit your mouth helps to ensure that the desired amount of whitening solution reaches the teeth. This process can be completed in at least one or more visits to the dentists. Each session would take about an hour to complete.
Dentures may be the right choice for you if have teeth that are missing or shifting. They are removable and prevents your existing teeth from shifting into unwanted areas.
Dentures are an easier and more practical way of replacing lost teeth. Depending upon various factors, dentures are potentially capable of designing the perfect smile where one had never been in the most affordable way possible.
