Cosmetic dentistry treatments these days have been quite popular not only to improve your oral health but your appearance too. If your teeth have issues and you are interested in a pearly white smile, your nearby dentist will recommend an appropriate cosmetic procedure. At times, processes meant to fulfill aesthetic roles may also improve the functionality of teeth. Emerging techniques for cosmetic dentistry procedures have become affordable and painless making them common. Listed below are the five most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Professional whitening is a non-invasive popular cosmetic de procedure aimed at improving the brightness of teeth. This option is quite attractive to patients due to its affordability and ease of access. Depending on the extent of discolouration or the natural colour of your teeth, you can lighten them by two to nine shades. How long the results last after treatment depend on how well you care for your teeth.
Veneers not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also aid in addressing practical concerns. A porcelain shell is usually fabricated to come up with a custom-made cover for the teeth. It is mostly used in case a patient suffers intrinsic staining and whitening won’t work. Porcelain veneers are used to cover the entire tooth surface and are appropriate in cases of chipped teeth, worn out enamel and uneven alignment. This procedure is invasive and leads to permanent alteration of the teeth.
Traditional metal braces are conspicuous and may be uncomfortable for some people. Invisalign offers an alternative to these braces. It is a discreet treatment consisting of clear aligners in the place of wires or metallic brackets. They, therefore, provide an invisible option for straightening the teeth. They have smooth, removable trays that allow effortless eating, talking, breathing and cleaning. The treatment aligns teeth to their ideal position without drawing much attention to your mouth.
4. Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are a treatment option capable of strengthening damaged teeth. Natural looking caps bearing the shape of a tooth are installed to cover teeth in order to improve their appearance, restore their shape and enhance their strength. They are also used to cover an implant, support tooth filling components and cover discoloured teeth.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to the loss of teeth. The process involves implanting an artificial root in the jaw and allowing it to fuse to the bone. This part of the procedure is invasive, and recovery takes about six months. A crown is then attached on its top as a replacement for a lost tooth.
