Any dental work that enhances the aesthetic (but not usually the performance) of dentition, gums, and/or biting is considered cosmetic dentistry. It puts emphasis on the color, placement, form, structure, symmetry, and visual appeal of the teeth.
Here is a list of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures available today.
Crowns are a sort of cap that is used to cover an injured tooth. Crowns can still be used to strengthen teeth or to alter their proportion or look. Steel, porcelain fused to wire, ceramic, and resin are all options for crowns. Each tooth to be treated is trimmed back well before a crown is put. A dental adhesive is then used to secure the crown to the filed-down teeth.
Veneers are transparent casings that are placed over the front enamel surface to conceal them. Implants are created to order and glued to your teeth in order to alter their aesthetic. The structure, form, color, and width of your teeth can all be altered with veneers. Veneers are never a major change, yet they are fixed and cannot be reversed.
Tooth whitening can be done with a range of specialist solutions as well as over-the-counter items. Gels, trays, and strips, along with medical interventions in a dental clinic, are instances of bleaching agents. It is also great for teeth that have a yellowish discoloration. Patients with healthy, unrestored teeth are the greatest candidates for whitening. Your dentist will be able to tell you if teeth whitening is a viable solution for you.
Gum recession can highlight the roots of the teeth. The uncovered teeth will occur to be excessively lengthy and hypersensitive to changes in temperature. Gum recession increases the chance of cavities and infection at the base(root) of the teeth. It can be corrected by grafting strong gum tissue from one area of the mouth to the other. The gum line will also look better as a result of this.
When any gum line is uneven, or the teeth seem to be excessively small, gum contouring might contribute to enhancing a smile. A tiny fragment of the gum tissue is excised during this surgery. Bone tissue that is excessive could also be eliminated. The process can be accomplished on a single tooth or a group of teeth.
