Best cosmetic dentistry treatments

Cosmetic dentistry refers to a wide range of specialized procedures aimed at enhancing the appearance of teeth. Some of these procedures also have addressed dental issues along with esthetics.

Cosmetic teeth whitening

The most common, least complicated, and least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening brightens teeth using bleaching solutions. Depending on the severity of discoloration, your dentist will recommend you the best method for teeth whitening.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made covers for the front teeth that are constructed of dental porcelain or composite. The visual faults related to the size, color, shape, or length of the object are concealed by these incredibly thin shells. Dental problems including a slightly misaligned tooth, discolored or cracked teeth, or even gaps in teeth can be fixed with a veneer.

Cosmetic dental crowns

A dental crown is a cap-like covering that is put on top of a broken tooth. Crowns can be used in aesthetic dentistry to fix malformed teeth, that have extensive decay, are cracked, chipped, noticeably discolored, misshapen, shattered, or have had big fillings. They fix the teeth’s size, shape, strength, and look. Dental crowns can be fabricated from porcelain fused to metal, ceramic, or metal. They typically last for 30 years or more with proper care.

Composite Bonding 

 Composite bonding is another cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help achieve both restorative and aesthetic goals. The use of composite bonding is another cosmetic dentistry procedure that general dentists regularly carry out. With the aid of this procedure, both restorative and cosmetic objectives can be reached. On the surface of the teeth, flaws like discoloration, tiny fissures, or tiny chips can be fixed by composite bonding.

Usually, the treatment is short and painless. A thin layer of composite, a tooth-colored material, will be applied by the general dentist. The flaw will then be covered by the composite, which will be molded to make the tooth appear brand-new. The composite is then hardened using a curing light to guarantee that it adheres to the tooth permanently. Severely discolored, cracked, or chipped teeth may benefit from this composite bonding to restore appearance.

Orthodontic treatment

Commonly, treatments like braces or aligners are offered at a young age to straighten the teeth for good oral health. However, as people age, the teeth can shift again, resulting in crookedness. Teeth straightening/alignment falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry as it aims to improve form and appearance while ensuring good function, too.

Patients opt for clear aligners as they are more discreet and comfortable, which allows for an easier treatment process. Typically, depending on the severity of the condition, treatment is needed for six months to a year.

Invisible Aligners

Invisalign aligners are removable and convenient. Fixed braces are preferable for more severe cases of teeth straightening, while removable Invisalign braces are better for milder cases.
