Technological advancements in dentistry today make cosmetic dental procedures look even better than before. Dentists are now using a more conservative approach to cosmetic dentistry to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible, making teeth more natural-looking and durable at the same time.
Cosmetic dentists may use their own equipment to do the procedure and not have to refer patients to specialists. This helps reduce recovery time and overall wait time for that great smile. And, what’s more is that, cosmetic procedures are getting more affordable. The trend now is to look your best at low costs.
So here’s a list of cosmetic dentistry treatments you might want to consider:
Composite bonding – Broken or chipped and discoloured or decayed tooth may be repaired to look new using this method. A dental composite that looks like enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or surface of the tooth, where it is sculpted and moulded into shape. It is then contoured and hardened with a high intensity light.
6 Month Smiles – Dental braces that can transform your smile in as little as 6 months.
Teeth whitening – Teeth that are stained from smoking or by poor oral hygiene can regain their radiance through this procedure.
Dental Veneers – Composite or porcelain laminates that are bonded to the surface of the tooth to correct chips and cracks. Veneers may be recommended if you have spaces in your teeth.
Dental Implants – are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetics to compensate tooth loss. The result is that great enhanced smile that you always wanted.
Teeth Straightening – The patient is given a local anaesthetic. Heat is then applied to remove the fragments of the gum in order to reshape it to suit the new veneers. Each veneer is then mounted and bounded to the front of the teeth.
Laser technique – Laser emitting beams are used to produce intense light that activates a whitening agent made from Carbamide Peroxide or Hydrogen Peroxide which will then be pasted onto the enamel of the tooth.
