There are a number of cosmetic dental procedures that can make a big difference in the way that your teeth look. It can be exhausting to live with teeth that are damaged, discolored, or crooked because you spend so much energy trying to hide them from others. If you avoid smiling, laughing, or find yourself covering your mouth while you talk then it is time to consider cosmetic dentistry. Below you can read explanations of four top cosmetic dental procedures to consider.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain is a strong material that is resistant to stains making it a great option for repairing damage and covering discoloration. Veneers can be used to for teeth that are cracked or chipped to repair or cover up the damage. Teeth with deep stains that do not respond to other whitening methods can benefit from porcelain veneers. You can also use porcelain veneers to reshape your teeth and fill in gaps. Porcelain veneers provide you with a lot of options for improving your teeth.
In-office teeth whitening is a quick and relatively inexpensive cosmetic procedure that can provide you with dramatic results. If you have years’ worth of surface stains built up on your teeth, one or two sessions of in-office whitening can remove those and whiten your teeth up to ten shades. You can walk out of the dentist’s office in as little as 60 minutes with a noticeably brighter smile.
Invisible braces are a cosmetic dental option for straightening your teeth. There are many people who can get straighter teeth without using traditional braces. Invisible braces straighten your teeth over time using clear aligners that are changed out periodically as your teeth shift. You can get straighter teeth and most people will not even notice that you are wearing the aligners.
Esthetic bonding involves bonding a tooth-colored resin to your teeth. This cosmetic procedure can be used to fix damage and improve the look of your teeth. If you have teeth that are cracked, decayed or damaged esthetic bonding can be used to make repairs. Esthetic bonding is a more affordable option than porcelain veneers or crowns and can be used to fix a number of common issues.
