Cosmetic dentistry will focus on how to give you a better smile by attending to teeth that have become discoloured, chipped, broken, misaligned etc. Improving your smile will give you more confidence as well to speak to people and show off your smile without any self-consciousness.
There are many types of cosmetic dentistry. You can see the cosmetic dentistry services provided by the dental service by clicking mountdruittdental.com.au. This branch of dentistry is called aesthetic dentistry as well. Your smile is the first thing that anyone will notice so there are so many things you can do if you are self-conscious about your smile. Teeth whitening and dental veneers are some of the common procedures of cosmetic dentistry. If your teeth are misshapen or you have missing teeth that are easily noticeable, these can be corrected by a cosmetic dentist. So you need to specifically search for a cosmetic dentist in order to address these issues.
Many people come in for teeth whitening procedures and this is an inexpensive way of improving your smile. They can be bleached at the dentist’s office or you can also ask the dentist about procedures that you can do at home to whiten teeth. There are moulds and gels that aid teeth whitening that can be done at home. But it is best to ask for a recommendation from your dentist so that you choose a safe product. Dental veneers can do a great change to your smile. They are very thin customer made shells that can cover the front of your teeth. These shells can be made of resin or porcelain and they will be coloured to match that of your existing teeth. A very thin layer of enamel will be removed from your teeth before these shells are bonded to the surface. This is a more expensive procedure when compared to teeth whitening.
A dental crown can be fixed over a damaged tooth as well. This can keep a cracked or weak tooth together. And they can also cover teeth that are misshapen. Dental crowns are also called caps. You can ensure that the strength and shape of the tooth is reinforced through this procedure. If you have decayed, chipped or cracked teeth, they can be repaired by teeth bonding where a durable plastic will be bonded to the tooth with the help of ultraviolet or laser light. This material is then shaped by the dentist through trimming and polishing to create a more natural and complete tooth. There are also indirect fillings that are made from a variety of materials like porcelain, gold and composite materials. These are called inlays and on lays. These dental fillings are created to fit your tooth in a lab and during your appointment, the dentist will bond these fillings into place. These can be bonded to the centre of a tooth or it can cover the surface of the tooth that you use for biting. This is an alternative to dental crowns and they can help preserve healthy teeth.
