Cosmetic Dentistry: More than just looks

Mar 29

Advances in dentistry have given us a plethora of possibilities for producing stunning smiles. Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance of your smile by employing natural-looking, safe, and long-lasting materials. There isn't a smile that we can't make better. It's about more than simply appearance when it comes to a smile. Aesthetics are important, but practicality is equally important. A beautiful grin should not only be attractive but also feel at ease and natural. When it comes to your mouth and teeth, we at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry recognize the importance of functionality.

The Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry can encompass a number of different dental procedures, all designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Other popular cosmetic dental procedures include:

Bonding: Bonding can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. The process involves the application of a tooth-colored resin to the tooth. The resin is then cured with a special light, resulting in a seamless repair that looks and feels natural.

Veneers: Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth. They can be used to correct a wide variety of dental problems, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment.

Crowns: Crowns: Crowns are caps that are tooth-shaped that are placed over damaged or misshapen teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, and resin.

Implants: Implants: Dental implants are fake or artificial roots that are situated in the jawbone to support a replacement tooth. Implants are a popular choice for those who have lost a tooth due to injury or disease.

Invisalign: Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to correct misaligned teeth. Invisalign is virtually invisible, making it a popular choice for those who want straighter teeth but don't want the hassle or appearance of traditional braces.

Dentures: Dentures are removable replacement teeth that are used to correct tooth loss. There are two types of dentures, full and partial. Full dentures replace all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth.

Which treatments are most appropriate for me?

Many people are uninformed of the therapy options available to them and which ones are best for them. This is why we recommend starting with a consultation. Our dentist can assess your needs and wishes for a beautiful smile during this session and match them with the cosmetic dentistry procedures that are best for you.

Consultations are a way for us to get to know you, your needs, and your desires for your smile. We want to ensure that you are fully informed of the treatments available to you and that you make the best decision for you and your smile.

Is cosmetic dentistry the best option for me?

Consider the reasons for your unhappiness with your grin or your desire to hide your smile. Others' initial impression of you is your grin. What message does your smile send?
