Cosmetic dentistry is a branch where a dentist combines various treatment methods to create the perfect smile.
Patients who desire a whiter smile undergo teeth whitening (also known as dental bleaching). One reason for tooth whitening is to make the patient's teeth whiter and brighter for an attractive smile. It can also be done to lessen discoloration and stains.
Discoloration of tooth enamel can be brought on by stains, aging, or chemical injury to teeth. Medication, coffee, tea, and cigarettes are a few of the most frequent reasons for tooth discoloration. Cola soft drinks can cause similar discoloration in people who consume large amounts of them. Discoloration may also result from root damage.
A dental implant, is used in dentistry to support restorations that look like a tooth or set of teeth.
Today, root-form endosseous implants are typically used to replace missing teeth. In other words, practically all dental implants placed in the 21st century have a "root form" that makes them resemble real tooth roots and are inserted into the bone. Not only are implants used to replace one tooth, but they are also very beneficial for those who missed most of their teeth, if not all. More and more detachable partial dentures and specific types of bridges are being replaced with implants.
Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding or tooth bonding, is a great way to correct both aesthetic and structural flaws in the teeth. Dental bonding can replace the silver amalgam fillings in teeth can be replaced with, which can also be used to fix broken, chipped, and discolored teeth. Cosmetic bonding can help realign teeth that are out of place, giving you a straighter, more even smile. Each patient's smile is created specifically for them. These operations are classified as cosmetic dental procedures.
The "Gummy Smile" is an issue where your teeth seem too short. Gum sculpting is frequently the answer. To fix this, a dentist will use a laser to cut away the extra tissue causing your "gummy" smile, exposing more of your tooth.
