Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental medicine that focuses on improving the appearance of teeth, gums and bites. It includes a variety of cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and bonding.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is one of the fastest growing areas in healthcare.

This is because people are becoming more aware of the importance of a beautiful smile and its impact on self-confidence.

Who Benefits From Cosmetic Procedures?

There are many people who can benefit from having cosmetic procedures done. This can include people who have esthetic concerns with their teeth, or those who have suffered dental damage. 

Cosmetic treatments may help to improve your smile, and they can also help to protect the teeth from further damage. 

In addition, people who have had cosmetic procedures done often report feeling more confident and self-esteem.

What are the different types of cosmetic dentistry?

There are many different types of cosmetic dentistry. 

Veneers, implants, crowns, and resin are all types of cosmetic dentistry. 

Missing teeth, stains, chips, and misshapen teeth can all be corrected with dental implants, braces, and composite fillings. Decay can be prevented with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

Orthodontics

There are many orthodontic appliances that can be used to improve the alignment of teeth, including braces and veneers.

Orthodontics can provide many benefits, such as improving the appearance of your smile and making it easier to clean your teeth.

However, there are also some disadvantages to orthodontic treatment, such as the cost and the potential for discomfort. You should discuss the advantages and disadvantages of orthodontic treatment with your dentist before deciding whether or not to proceed with treatment.

Bonding

A dental bond is a type of resin used to improve the appearance of teeth. It is often used in cosmetic dental procedures to fill in chips or gaps, and can also be used to decay. 

Dental bonding can be done by a dentist or by a qualified cosmetic dentist.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or other material that is bonded to the front surface of a tooth.
Veneers are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, chipped, or worn down. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth.

Veneers are made from either porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are more durable and stain-resistant than composite veneers.

However, they are also more expensive. Composite veneers are less expensive but not as durable or stain-resistant as porcelain veneers.

To prepare for a veneer procedure, the dentist will first remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth. This is necessary in order to create room for the veneer. Next, an impression of the tooth will be made. This impression will be used to create the veneer. Once the veneer is ready, it will be bonded to the tooth with a special adhesive.

Veneers can last for many years with proper care. However, they can become chipped or damaged just like natural teeth. If this happens, they will need to be replaced.

Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implant has healed, a small connector piece called an abutment is placed on top of it.

Finally, a dental crown is placed over the abutment to give the tooth a natural look and feel.

Dental implants are a popular choice for people who are looking to improve their smile. They are also a good option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to injury or disease.

Implants are usually placed in the upper jaw because it has a higher success rate than the lower jaw. However, implants can be placed in either jaw.
