At Century Dental Associates, cosmetic dentistry is a type of dental care that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. However, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your teeth and your overall oral health. While cosmetic dentistry focuses on creating a beautiful smile, it can also help restore the functionality of your mouth and teeth, which helps improve your overall health.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
A professional teeth whitening treatment can help remove stains from your teeth to create a brighter smile that can make you look and feel younger and more attractive.
Dental veneers are custom-made shells placed over your front teeth to cover imperfections such as cracks, chips, or gaps between teeth. Veneers are created using thin pieces of porcelain that can be shaped to perfectly cover any imperfection you may have on your front teeth.
Dental implants are another excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are a great way to restore your smile and give you back all of the functionality of having natural teeth. They are an excellent option for anyone who has decayed or broken teeth and needs restorative treatments.
The dentist may recommend dental bonding to repair mild to moderate teeth imperfections, such as stains and small chips or cracks. The treatment involves applying a resin composite to the tooth’s surface and curing it with a special light. Bonding material can be customized to perfectly match the patient’s natural teeth.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
