The Basics of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is any service used to improve the appearance of your smile. Your smile is the first thing most people notice when they meet you, so it’s important that you feel confident enough to show yours off. Most dentists provide cosmetic solutions that allow you to improve your smile. The following are common cosmetic issues that can be treated with cosmetic dentistry:

Discolored, Stained Teeth

Over the years, our smiles can age us due to discoloration and staining. Many of the foods and drinks we consume on a regular basis are actually known to dull the color of your teeth. Coffee, tea, soda, and fruit juice are some of the most common sources of tooth staining. Luckily, teeth whitening solutions can help resolve this issue. Through the use of a custom tray, a bleaching gel is coated over your teeth to lift stains and leave you with a brighter, whiter smile.

Chipped, Misshapen Teeth

Many people have pointed or rounded permanent teeth. While fully functional, they may not blend in with the rest of your smile. This can throw off the overall appearance of your smile. Additionally, teeth are commonly chipped overtime when eating especially crunchy foods. Porcelain veneers are a good solution to this issue. Porcelain veneers are durable caps placed over the tops of your teeth. They provide a complete smile makeover while also letting you keep your original tooth.

Gapped Teeth

Gaps in your teeth can be a source of embarrassment for some patients. If you notice large gaps in your teeth, this is a common issue that can be cosmetically covered if desired. Tooth bonding, or the use of a composite-resin, is commonly used to fill in gapped teeth. Additionally, if you have a stain on your tooth that is resistant to a whitening gel, tooth bonding can be used to cover up those small blemishes as well.
