Types of cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
The material that we use for tooth-colored fillings is composite resin. This method of restoration is used to improve the structure and appearance of the tooth with minimal invasion and discomfort. The color of the resin can be matched closely to the natural tooth. Composite resin is best suited to repair teeth that are chipped, fractured, or decayed.
The procedure involves bonding the material to the tooth surface. No anesthesia is generally required and each tooth can be finished in under an hour. After being placed, the filling hardens with seconds and you can see results on the same day.
Veneers are very thin shells made of porcelain that can be bonded over teeth. They are made in the desired shape and color and then placed over the prepared tooth. The required shade of white or the color of neighboring teeth can be achieved with this material. We work with you to understand the kind of smile you want to achieve with the veneers and strive to give you something you would be extremely happy with.
For a veneer to go over the front of a tooth, the tooth needs to be prepared by removing a thin layer of the enamel to accommodate it. The veneer is shaped in a lab so we fit you with a temporary one for the time being.
Veneers work great for stained, chipped, or irregularly shaped teeth. They are also used to close any gaps between teeth.
Dental crowns can improve the appearance of a tooth by covering flaws like cracks, irregularities, deep discoloration, decay, or fillings. The color and shape of your crown is matched to the surrounding teeth to make it look natural, aesthetically pleasing, and fit seamlessly in your mouth. Read More
If your smile is missing a tooth or extractions have been made, inserting a dental implant in the jawbone allows a prosthetic tooth to be fixed on it. This tooth looks like your real teeth and makes your smile look natural and complete. Read More
Invisalign are clear, plastic aligners that are meant to straighten teeth. They fit securely over your teeth and need to be changed every 1-2 weeks with tighter aligners. Some irregularities are not effectively corrected by Invisalign. If you’re interested, we can look at your teeth and discuss how aligners may benefit you. Each case is different and the results depend upon the severity of the issue being addressed.
They are broadly able to improve the following :
- Crooked Teeth
- Gaps Between teeth
- Open Bite
- Crowded Teeth
