5 Cosmetic Dentistry Services That Can Improve Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry deals with aesthetic dental concerns that can make a person feel self-conscious about their smile, such as chipped, stained and gapped teeth. There are a number of cosmetic dental treatments available that can address certain types of dental issues and ultimately improve the appearance of a person’s smile. Read on to learn about five of the most common options.

1. Teeth Whitening

Teeth can lose their shine and become discoloured when staining foods or drinks are consumed often. Teeth whitening is carried out to lighten the colour of a patient’s teeth through removing stains and discolouration. This can be done either during an appointment at a dental clinic or by using a take home kit.

2. Veneers

Veneers are thin and transparent shells that are made to cover misshaped teeth, chips and gaps, as well as hide teeth stains. They’re made to fit over your teeth to alter their shape, size, shade and length, and they’ll match the colour of your natural teeth to look as realistic as possible.

3. Bonding

If you have teeth that are smaller than they should be or if they need additional protection, they can be bonded. The bonding procedure involves applying tooth-coloured composite resin to treat issues such as cracked, chipped or misshapen teeth.

4. Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are clear aligners made to correct tooth crowding and improve a patient’s bite and smile. These comfortable and discreet braces are a recommended alternative to traditional metal braces if you’re concerned about how your smile will look during the course of your treatment. They’re custom-made to fit your mouth and can be taken out when you eat or brush your teeth.

5. Crowns

Crowns are used to restore the shape, size and strength of teeth, and they’re available in metal, porcelain, resin and ceramic options. Your dentist will determine which option is best for you based on your budget and your dental needs.
