What Problems Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?
Cosmetic dentistry can address various cosmetic imperfections in your smile. Cosmetic treatments can whiten your teeth to correct discoloration and stains, repair chips and cracks, correct misaligned teeth, close gaps in your smile, replace missing teeth, and cover up misshapen and awkwardly sized teeth.
We offer a range of cosmetic treatments that can correct every type of aesthetic flaw with your teeth. Best of all, cosmetic treatments are versatile and can correct multiple problems simultaneously and you have the choice of many different treatments that can all treat the same problem.
For example, tooth discoloration can be addressed through teeth whitening, dental bonding, veneers, or dental crowns, which all correct the problem using different approaches. We can work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that will address all of your smile concerns and achieve your cosmetic goals in the least invasive and budget-friendly way possible.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Treatment?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile but are otherwise in good oral health then you’re the perfect candidate for cosmetic dental treatment. Cosmetic dentistry is often used to correct the following issues:
- Stained/discolored teeth
- Chips & cracks
- Minor orthodontic problems (gaps, crooked teeth)
- Enamel erosion
- Misshapen teeth
- Missing teeth
- Teeth that are too short, small, long, or sharp
Cosmetic dental treatments can correct issues like misaligned teeth, correct damage, and replace missing teeth. However, we can also completely transform the size and shape of your teeth if you wish they were larger, less jagged, or more uniform.
However, to qualify for cosmetic dental treatment, you need to be in good oral health with no active tooth decay or gum disease. If you have severely damaged teeth, you may also require restorative treatment and cosmetic treatment may not be right for you.
Some cosmetic treatments involve removing a small amount of tooth enamel so you must have healthy strong teeth with sufficient tooth enamel for these treatments to be suitable for you.
What Is Dental Bonding?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile but are otherwise in
Dental bonding is the bonding of composite resin to the teeth to replace missing tooth structures, repair damage, and cover up any other cosmetic imperfections in the teeth. The resin is matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth using a shade guide.
The resin is applied and molded to your tooth and then cured with UV light to harden it in place. Additional shaping can be performed to achieve the proper size and shape of the teeth that you are trying to achieve. Bonding can be used to cover a range of aesthetic imperfections, including discoloration, minor tooth damage, small gaps, and minor misalignment.
