In today’s world, people are more concerned about appearances than ever. But you don’t need to be vain to want increased confidence in your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is an increasingly popular solution for a host of oral health and beauty problems, but many people don’t know what’s available and are afraid to ask. Brookstone Dental Care offers many cosmetic surgery options, and we’re ready to answer any questions you have. Let’s take a look at what we can do.
Cosmetic dentistry, generally speaking, is any dental work specifically performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile. In other words, it does not address a functional problem, such as chewing ability or treat any problematic symptoms or diseases. It entails a change to the size, shape, color, or alignment of your teeth.
There may be some overlap, in that some treatments to improve dental maladies also aesthetically improve a smile (such as replacing lost teeth), but such procedures would not be considered cosmetic dentistry because missing teeth, for example, is a functional concern as well.
The most widely known cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening. This procedure cleans tartar stains from tooth enamel. Usually, this will be done at our office, but there are at-home solutions as well.
This procedure repairs damaged or discolored teeth with a material that looks just like your natural enamel. The damaged areas are removed and replaced with the composite.
Sometimes called indirect fillings, inlays cover the surface of the tooth whenever there has been substantial damage. Onlays are made of composite resin and adhere to the teeth. This improves the aesthetic appearance of badly damaged teeth but may also be a functional procedure to restore strength, as well.
A ceramic covering uniquely fit for your natural teeth, veneers are highly flexible, addressing concerns from chipped teeth to gaps, or even crooked teeth. They are very natural-looking and adhered with dental adhesive.
If a tooth is missing, an implant is a common solution. A titanium post is inserted into the jaw to support a crown. Thanks to modern dentistry, implants are hugely successful these days.
