Cosmetic dental procedures are focused on improving the appearance of a patient’s teeth, gums, or bite. At Freeman Dental, we use such procedures to replace damaged teeth, hide imperfections, or fix minor teeth alignment issues. Cosmetic dental procedures improve your smile and also have dental health benefits.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers mask dental imperfections and change the color of your teeth. Veneers are also highly stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about them staining or changing color over time.
A dental crown is a type of dental restoration that fully caps a tooth or dental implant. The crown is designed to replicate the natural anatomy of a tooth, and the procedure is used to strengthen a tooth or improve its appearance.
Dental implants are a type of prosthetic used to replace teeth. They have a similar structure to a natural tooth, and they are designed to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments which removes stains from teeth, giving them a brighter appearance. Professional teeth whitening can lighten teeth up to eight shades, removing deep stains and brightening the teeth beyond their natural shade.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Make Teeth Whiter
Veneers can make teeth appear whiter, but so can a teeth whitening treatment. In some cases, patients may choose veneers and whitening treatments to achieve their desired results.
Remove or Reduce the Appearance of Minor Imperfections
Cosmetic dentistry is most commonly used to improve the appearance of minor flaws, such as small chips or cracks, minor gaps, and stains on teeth. In many cases, these imperfections are only cosmetic issues. However, small chips and cracks that don’t get treated can lead to more significant dental issues. That’s why dentists often recommend cosmetic treatments for small imperfections.
Enhance Your Smile
With time, you may not be smiling as broadly or as often due to the fact that your teeth are dull, yellow, or stained. You can now easily transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry, and instantly feel more confident in yourself and your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile’s appearance, which can boost your confidence. When you’re proud of your smile, you are more likely to flaunt it. Smiling often can make you appear happier, friendlier, and more approachable to others, which can improve your personal and professional life.
Additionally, cosmetic dentistry procedures can improve your quality of life. For example, if you have missing teeth, you may find it difficult to speak or eat. This can affect your nutrition and overall enjoyment of life. Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants can restore your smile and your quality of life.
Help Prevent Future Damage
By addressing dental issues early, you can prevent further damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. This can help increase the longevity of your smile, too.
