While cosmetic dentistry is one of the newest sub-fields of dentistry to emerge, it has become one of the most popular. Hollywood has made cosmetic dentistry seem like an unattainable extravagance, but that is far from the truth. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for the bright, shiny smiles of Hollywood; it is also for the bright, beautiful smiles of people in Rochester Hills.
Cosmetic dentistry, to some, sounds like a superficial fix for bad oral hygiene, but that is not the case. Cosmetic dentistry is recommended for people who have otherwise healthy teeth, but are unhappy with the appearance of them.
Treatments and procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry include:
- Dental Crowns and Bridges
- Teeth Whitening
- Cosmetic Dentures
Let’s focus on three of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Veneers are a thin piece of porcelain that is permanently placed over the front of the teeth to cover gaps, cracks, pits, discolorations, and misaligned teeth. While veneers are a quick smile enhancer, reshaping the teeth may be necessary.
A teeth whitening treatment does just as it sounds – it whitens teeth. There are many over the counter teeth whitening creams, pastes, trays, lights, and gels, but nothing can get the same type of results that teeth whitening by a dental professional can provide. With a teeth whitening treatment in the dentist’s office, you are guaranteed a high quality, radiant smile that will last.
Dental crowns and bridges are part of a dental procedure that is meant to fill the spaces in your bite left by missing or extracted teeth. Dental crowns and bridges can be permanently anchored to your jaw using titanium cylinders, known as dental implants. That means that your replacement teeth will be just as strong and durable as the tooth or teeth you lost.
A beautiful, perfect smile is within reach when you visit a certified cosmetic dentist in Rochester Hills.
