Restoring Your Smile May Begin with Cosmetic Dentistry
Posted on 7/12/2021 by SmileCOS Dentistry
Sometimes you just need a little self-confidence when it comes to smiling. That is why we offer several cosmetic procedures to improve the looks of your smile or increase its functioning. We can do this in one or more ways.
Restoring the Smile with Dental Crowns
Some patients may need to have dental crowns placed to fix cracks in the front or back teeth or to support the addition of a bridge. A dental crown lasts a long time and can preserve the integrity of a tooth. It often is applied after a root canal. Wherever they are placed, dental crowns can improve your teeth's appearance and aid in dental functioning.
Using Implants to Restore a Smile
One of the innovative technologies in dentistry today are implants. Implants serve as artificial roots for fixed bridges, fixed dentures, and crowns may be added. They make it possible for edentulous patients to restore lost smiles and make it easier to apply dental restorations that are more permanent. For example, you can have an all-on-4 dental procedure performed, which involves placing implants in the upper and larger arches in 4 strategic areas of the mouth. This treatment allows the patient to wear fixed dentures, which do not require the use of fixatives or adhesives.
Adding Veneers or Bonding
We can also perfect a smile with veneers or dental bonding. Usually, these cosmetic procedures are performed to improve the looks of the front teeth when they are discolored, slightly misaligned, or show a crack or chip. While veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the teeth, bonding involves using a resin and special light to correct a dental flaw or imperfection.
As you can see, you have several options available to you when it comes to improving the looks of your teeth and giving you a new smile. Give us a call today to find out more information.
