Not all dentistry is a do or die situation, and that’s okay. Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry less concerned with cavities and flossing and more interested in making your smile as bright as you dream. A smile can go a long way to helping you in social situations or even in your professional life. A great smile can boost your confidence and help you feel more successful throughout your day. That’s the importance of what cosmetic dentistry provides. Let us take a look at some of the more popular cosmetic dentistry options.
Teeth whitening is among the most common and least invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures. It could be as simple as using at-home strips or tooth whitening toothpaste or it could be more intensive like laser whitening or teeth bleaching. No matter what you choose, you can have the benefit of a dazzling and confident smile. Teeth whitening can be the gateway for many people to begin their journey for better and more confident smiles.
Healing Chipped Teeth
Something else that can throw a wrench into your smile is misshapen teeth, thanks to chips or damage. If you have a chipped tooth, you should have it looked at as soon as possible to ensure it does not get damaged further and the delicate internal part of your tooth is not damaged or potentially infected. But, beyond the emergency care, you may be left with an unfortunate dent in your smile that can make you self conscious. While it may not be medically necessary to get a chipped tooth fixed, you have plenty of reason to seek cosmetic dentistry options for your chipped teeth which includes enamel bonding.
When most people think of cosmetic dentistry, you likely think of veneers. This is among the most well known cosmetic dentistry procedures, utilizing porcelain shells that sit over your natural teeth. This is done by taking an impression of your teeth before permanent veneers are bonded to the surface. They’re ideal for those who are concerned about dark stains on their teeth that have resisted bleaching as well more permanent dents or chips that don’t have another recourse for chipped teeth. This is a permanent fix for many cosmetic dental issues.
For those who skipped braces as a teenager, Invisalign is the way to go for righting crooked teeth. Invisalign is a clear mouthpiece that fits over your teeth worn throughout the day, silently correcting your teeth while those around you are none the wiser. You can eat and drink what you want while using Invisalign and can take them off to properly brush and floss your teeth. This is a great way to fix crooked teeth later in life and can help teenagers worried about the aesthetic of braces.
