If your teeth are yellow, or if you have an unattractive chip in one tooth, then
you can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Certain procedures, such as dental bonding, can fill in a chipped tooth
or crack, making your smile look brand-new again. Read on for some other
ways to solve your cosmetic dental problems.
Porcelain veneers, sometimes called dental caps, are used to cover gapped
teeth, chipped teeth, and severely discolored teeth. If you choose veneers
to correct your smile, your dentist will order a custom restoration to
fit the look and size of your affected tooth. Your dentist will then shave
off a portion of your tooth and, using a dental glue, will apply the veneer.
If you have a cavity on your front teeth, then you can benefit from a tooth-colored
filling, also called a composite resin filling. These dental fillings
are made from finely ground glass particles that are colored to match
your tooth. While these fillings are best applied to the front teeth,
they are still strong fillings for the back molars. You can also ask your
dentist to replace your current metal fillings with composite resin fillings
for a better smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to correct a discolored or darkened
smile. Even with regular dental cleanings, your teeth can darken and yellow
from common foods and drinks. However, you can brighten your teeth color
with professional teeth whitening done during a short dental appointment.
When you have a chip or crack in your teeth, you may benefit most from
dental bonding. Dental bonding, or composite bonding, can be colored to match your teeth
color. They also make strong dental restorations that can restore the
look and function of your teeth.
