Imagine listening to a joke. The story builds slowly, then the punchline hits, and the corners of your lips start to shoot up. Flashing a smile is natural at this point. For those who aren’t confident in their smile, a moment of natural joy can turn into an embarrassing and vulnerable experience. Consider cosmetic dental work to give you the smile that will keep your confidence as high as your spirits.
There are several types of cosmetic dentistry that we’ll go through below. Make sure to ask your dentist which form of cosmetic dentistry is best for giving you the smile you want.
1. Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Sometimes called “teeth bleaching,” this form of cosmetic dentistry can help you get a brighter smile. This procedure is good if you have discolored or stained teeth. There are options for you to have teeth whitening at home and in your dentist’s office. Make sure to talk to your dentist so you can decide together if teeth whitening is right for you.
2. Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Veneers are another option to give your smile some extra support. Veneers are made of porcelain, or other materials that form a shell dentists can place over one or more of your teeth. Veneers are great for treating crooked teeth, cracked teeth, stained teeth, and sometimes extra spaces between your teeth. There are options with veneers to match the color of your natural teeth, so all your teeth will look similar.
3. Cosmetic Dental Implants
Dental implants are metal units that replace missing teeth. Dental implants typically get added to the jaw where the tooth is missing through surgery. A dental implant is usually the first step in correcting a missing tooth. The dental implant acts like the foundation or an artificial root for a crown, bridge, or denture that will mimic a tooth.
4. Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding is a type of cosmetic dentistry that places tooth-colored materials onto your tooth. This procedure helps repair a tooth that has been through a lot, including being chipped or broken. If a full repair is not possible, dental bonding can help improve your tooth’s situation.
