Cosmetic Dentistry Works to Improve the Appearance of Your Pearly Whites
Common cosmetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. Cosmetic procedures can also be used to change the overall shape of your teeth from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped. A dental exam will take several factors into consideration when deciding what cosmetic procedure is appropriate for your smile.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
When asked what your best feature is, you will receive thousands of different answers. However, one defining feature we all possess is our smile. Looking and feeling good doesn’t have to be about counting calories or spending hours at the gym. Cosmetic dentistry can help give your self-esteem the boost it has always been looking for.
If you are looking to enhance your image there is an array of dental treatments available to fit your individual needs. Cosmetic treatments can range from quick and basic tooth whitening, to tailored courses of treatment, such as dental implants, crowns, or bridges. Each treatment is guaranteed to improve the appearance of your teeth, leaving you with a reason to smile.
Teeth Whitening Improves Brightness
A common complaint among smokers, or those who have stained teeth caused by the consumption of certain foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine, is that they are not happy with the appearance of their dull, faded smile. Depending on the whitening method you choose, treatment can be completed in one visit to your Cincinnati, OH family dentist, eliminating stains and enhancing your natural white in less than an hour. In-office teeth bleaching performed by your cosmetic dentist involves applying a bleaching gel to the teeth and activating the whitening solution with special lighting for approximately 30 minutes.
Dental Veneers Create a Straight, White Smile
If your teeth are cracked, stained, uneven or chipped, veneers may be the perfect option for transforming even the most damaged smile. Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are custom-designed by your dentist to perfectly cover and match your natural smile, masking most any dental blemish, including stains and cracks. Veneers are fitted to the front of your existing teeth, creating a uniform look by disguising stained, damaged, or crooked teeth, or by closing small gaps between teeth.
Compared to many treatment options, veneers can last up to 20 years, correcting the alignment of your smile by covering damaged or misshapen teeth. Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available, providing aesthetic and durable improvements in the appearance of your smile.
Whether you are interested in whiter, brighter, or straighter teeth, your family dentist in Cincinnati, OH can help you accomplish a more confident smile.
