Cosmetic dentistry is the practice of improving the appearance of your teeth and mouth to enhance your overall smile. It merges art with structure and balance. Dentists have focused on the aesthetic aspects of their patients’ smiles for years, but today, the materials that are available for cosmetic dental work are more durable and natural looking than they have been in the past. Porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and cosmetic crowns are a few popular cosmetic treatment options.
Porcelain veneers are slim, tooth-colored shells. They are custom-made and designed to cover the front section of your teeth to improve the look of your smile. Once the veneers are made, your dentist will bond them to your teeth. After he does, the dental appliances will modify the color, size, length or shape of your teeth. They can even make all four changes at once. While some cosmetic dentists use resin to make their veneers, at Gage Dental Care in Bell, we use porcelain. The material resists stains better than resin. Porcelain also exhibits the same light reflecting properties that natural teeth emit. This gives them a more natural appearance.
Teeth whitening is another popular cosmetic dentistry procedure offered by Gage Dental Care. Several options are available, so be sure to discuss your preferences and outcome desires with Dr. Abaian. We offer at-home bleaching kits as well as laser bleaching. If you don’t have the time to commit to these teeth whitening procedure, then consider Zoom Teeth Whitening. With Zoom, you can have whiter teeth in an hour.
When it comes to broken or cracked teeth, you may need cosmetic crowns to gain the perfect smile. These are made from porcelain, and they are permanent and durable. We have the technology and equipment to place crowns during one procedure. While crowns made from other materials are available, porcelain ones blend in with your natural teeth. Cosmetic dentistry will help you reclaim your self-esteem and give you a reason to smile.
