Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way over a short period of time offering many different cosmetic procedures to enhance one’s smile. A beautiful smile is not only for appearance but also helps with confidence and self-esteem. At one time, these dental procedures could only be afforded by movie stars but now with good insurance they can be quite affordable.
Teeth Whitening and Bleaching
Teeth whitening and bleaching have become one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures that enhances your smile. Smoking, eating, and drinking are all causes of stained teeth that can sometimes be corrected with just a cleaning but other times may involve bleaching and whitening.
Composite bonding can be used to repair decayed, chipped, or broken teeth by using a dental composite that has the look and feel of enamel. This composite is applied to the affected area and sculpted into shape then dried by high intensity light leaving the repaired area looking natural and you with a beautiful smile. This dental procedure can often be performed in one visit to your local cosmetic dentist.
Dental veneers are made of composite or porcelain laminates that are adhered to cracked or broken teeth. Veneers can improve the look of discolored teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Dental veneers have also been recommended to fix gapped teeth and improve whitening. Cosmetic veneers such as those at Smile Magic Dentistry can be affordable with insurance and improve worn enamel, uneven teeth, and discoloration.
Dental implants are a form of cosmetic dentistry that restores missing teeth to prevent jawbone loss. Jawbone loss can lead to sagging facial features leaving one looking older than they really are. Dental implants also help irregular bite patterns that lead to bad eating habits that can eventually cause weight loss and serious overall health problems.
Inviaslign is a cosmetic procedure that corrects a wide variety of dental problems including crowding, overbite, and spacing. Inviaslign straightens teeth by using custom-made aligners designed for an individual patient by using bite impressions. Aligners are made of smooth nearly invisible plastic that straightens teeth over time without having a mouth full of metal. Inviaslign leaves you with straightened teeth just like braces but without the pain or uncomfortable embarrassment of the metal mouth.
If you are unhappy with your smile a smile makeover is just the thing for you. Smile makeovers can help you achieve the looks that you have always wanted. If you suffer from self-esteem issues, then a smile makeover will help you build your self-confidence again.
These are just a few of the dental procedures that the modern world has to offer. From clear braces to dental implants and from smile makeovers to dental veneers there is no reason that everyone today should not have the smile that they have always wanted.
