Cosmetic dentistry is the name for a group of procedures and treatments aimed to improve the aesthetic look and feel of your teeth. These procedures can improve the color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. The types of cosmetic dentistry include but are not limited to:
Depending on the current state of your dental health, one or multiple procedures may be recommended. It is important to remember that your satisfaction is the driving force behind cosmetic dentistry. Superficial imperfections such as stains can be addressed with whitening while bonding can be used to treat both gaps and discoloration.
If you have a case of slight decay, chipping, discoloration, and/or damage, the use of crowns, veneers, or contouring may be what you’re looking for. Crowns are used to cover teeth and restore their original shape and look.
Veneers are thin strips of porcelain or plastic bonded to the front of your teeth to provide a uniform and bright smile.
Contouring is a form of treatment that aims to specifically change the shape of the teeth to correct chipped, crooked, or damaged teeth. It is common for contouring and bonding to be used to together to improve the appearance of the teeth.
An important part of any operation is proper communication between physician and patient. The doctors at Sunrise Dental will do everything thing they can to give you the look you want. Therefore, communicating with them is the most important factor before surgery can even begin. You’ll receive a full explanation of what procedures are recommended and how they will change your appearance. Once that work is done, you must do your part in maintaining your new smile.
Your newly treated teeth, crown, or veneers will require the same level of care and protection that your normal teeth do. Avoid foods that are hard to chew such as ice or nuts as they can cause physical damage to your teeth. Regularly brush and floss to avoid infection and disease. Visit your dentist at Sunrise Dental for regular checkups and cleanings for the best possible results.
