Cosmetic dentistry has never been more popular than it is today. With the rapid advancements in both technology and skilled professionals, cosmetic dentistry has been to achieve incredible results. The field of cosmetic dentistry can entail a variety of service.
Crowns are often used in cosmetic dentistry to repair a damaged tooth. Sometimes crowns are put in place after a tooth has been worked on (for example during a root canal) to replace parts that have been removed due to damage or decay.
Clear braces are gradually becoming more popular than traditional metal braces. Clear braces function similar to traditional braces but are transparent and retainer-like in appearance. They correct your teeth through the same basic principles as traditional braces, but are removable and transparent.
Whitening is an extremely common form of cosmetic dentistry. There are various methods used, including LASER technology, that have remarkable results. The particular process of whitening may differ between various methods, but the goal is always the same; to whiten teeth and remove stains.
Veneers are used to fill in missing parts of a tooth or to replace a tooth entirely. They are typically made up of a very durable, ceramic composite. Veneers can be matched to the rest of your teeth to give the appearance they are real. Veneers feel and function just like real teeth.
Dentures have been around for ages, but with today’s advancements in dental technology have improved dramatically. The look and feel of dentures can be matched very closely, if not identically, to natural teeth. Because dentures can be removed they may add convenience to some people.
