What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Whether you need minor changes to your smile or a complete smile make over, Dr. Nugent will take the time to talk to you about your different cosmetic options. Cosmetic dentistry can treat discolored teeth, missing teeth, broken teeth and correct large spaces between teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry can increase your general self-esteem while providing a beautiful white smile. The most common cosmetic procedures include bonding, crowns, dental implants, veneers and bleaching.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Bonding is a dental procedure where white colored composite resin is used to fill in spaces between teeth. Often, this procedure is completed in a single visit and the composite bonding will last for several years. This procedure is most often used for chipped or slightly decayed teeth.
All Ceramic Crowns
An all ceramic crown (no metal uses) restores a severely damaged tooth to it natural shape and contour. Sometimes, people will call a crown a “cap”. Crowns are used for their high strength and amazing cosmetic outcomes.
Cosmetic Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most advanced and cosmetic was to replace missing teeth. Dental implants preserve bone levels so patients do not experience the ugly black voids that patients with bridges experience. Dental implants do no damage adjacent teeth like bridges do.
Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain covers that can correct the shape, size and gaps in teeth. This is a conservative cosmetic option because only the front of the tooth is worked on.
Teeth Whitening (Teeth Bleaching)
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic treatment option. It is very effective at removing stain that has built up in teeth. Teeth are porous, so over time stain from food and drinks will seep into the teeth. Teeth bleaching is a popular procedure because it delivers such a positive cosmetic result for minimal financial cost.
