A cosmetic procedure is any treatment designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Some cosmetic dental procedures are purely for aesthetic reasons, but some are also necessary to keep your teeth and gums healthy. There are many different types of cosmetic dental treatments. Your dentist can recommend the best option for you individually after an exam and consultation.

Some of these cosmetic dentistry treatments include:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most dramatic treatments for missing teeth because they provide both replacement teeth and restoration of the lost jawbone structure. The dental implant itself is a small titanium post that is implanted into the bone beneath the gums. It acts as an artificial tooth root that supports the visible portion of the restoration above the gum line. This can be a single crown to replace one missing tooth, a bridge to replace multiple consecutive missing teeth, or a full denture to restore an entire row of missing teeth in the upper or lower arch.

Teeth Whitening

There are plenty of options for teeth whitening, from DIY whitening kits to in-office procedures. A dentist can offer professional insight regarding which treatment might work best for you. In-office treatments can whiten teeth an average of six shades in under an hour and yield results that will last for years. Your bite will also be evaluated to ensure that the restorations or cosmetic work you have will be in harmony with the rest of your smile. This is incredibly important when it comes to cosmetic dentistry because your restoration will look as natural as possible and feel completely comfortable.

Some at-home treatments may also contain prescription-strength ingredients, like hydrogen peroxide. These ingredients are safe to use on your teeth but could cause irritation if used in high concentrations. If you have sensitive gums or teeth, in-home treatments may not be the option that is best for you. Your dentist can help you decide which treatment option is most appropriate for you as well as how you can maintain your results at home through proper oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings.

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is used to enhance the appearance of teeth and improve a smile's appearance. These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front of the tooth in order to improve the color, size, shape, or length of the natural tooth. Dental veneers can be used to correct staining on the natural tooth caused by wine, coffee, soda, and certain medications. The treatment can also lengthen short teeth, close gaps between teeth, and even create a more symmetrical smile.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth in order to improve the smile's appearance. This procedure is non-invasive and can be completed in a single visit, making it a convenient and affordable way to improve your tooth's appearance. The procedure can often be completed without the use of anesthesia.
