Nowadays dentists have a wide selection of instruments and procedures at their disposal for improving the look of your smile. As you might have noticed, cosmetic dentistry is very popular and ranges from whitening and shaping to closing spaces and replacing complete teeth.
If you want to undertake any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to know the benefits and dangers. Also it’s nice to know what to expect during the procedure. Make sure you’re clear about what it will cost, and whether any special maintenance will be needed afterward.
There are several cosmetic dental procedures available;
- Bleaching in order to make teeth whiter (Teeth Whitening)
- Repairing chips or rough spots with fillings that match your teeth
- Filling cavities with tooth-colored materials (Tooth-Colored Fillings)
- Reshaping teeth that don’t match the others (Tooth Contouring & Reshaping)
- Closing gaps between teeth (Porcelain Bridgework)
- Covering broken teeth with porcelain crowns
A cosmetic dentist is a dentist who has considerably knowledge about the concepts of smile design and dental materials to create what could best be described as works of art. Cosmetic dentists are usually affiliated with a professional organization that provides continuing education and levels of accreditation to verify outstanding achievement in the study of cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth. This is something of the past, now we have tooth colored fillings that give a much nicer look and are not impossible to detect for other persons.
