Top 5 Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments!

In the era, where beauty and glamour are overtaking every industry, who doesn’t want to show off the beauty of their smile? Now more than ever, people are seeking cosmetic dental treatments. Cosmetic dentistry concentrates on improving the appearance of not only your smile but your face as well. There are many different types of cosmetic procedures available which can help enhance your smile.

Let’s talk about Top 5 Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments!

1. Teeth Whitening

Being one of the most common procedures of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening or teeth bleaching has the best results when done in office. Whitening should only be done after receiving a professional cleaning which removes plaque, calculus and surface stains from the tooth surface. This allows the bleach to penetrate the tooth and remove the stubborn internal stains. In-office whitening can achieve a lighter shade than the original tooth color. Over the years, teeth become stained from food, drinks, medications and personal habits like smoking. In-office teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to reverse the discoloration of teeth.

2. Dental Veneers

Veneers are made from a very thin porcelain and are permanently adhered to your teeth. A small amount of natural tooth structure needs to be removed from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneer. Veneers are considered a relatively non-invasive treatment, but is still considered permanent. Veneers can help solve many cosmetic problems including chipped, crooked, or discolored teeth. They are made individually for each patient to look like one’s natural teeth.

3. Dental Implants

Dental implants are now the most popular way to replace missing teeth. A small titanium screw is inserted into the jaw at the site of missing tooth to serve the purpose of supporting a crown. The bone surrounding the implant fuses to it which secures it in place. Once the implant is restored, the crown is indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth. Patient needs to keep utmost care of their teeth to avoid any plaque or tartar buildup at the implant site.
