4 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Make You SMILE!

Cosmetic Dentistry helps create the perfect smile

When you smile, people see you as happier, healthier, and younger. Science has even proven you actually are healthier when you smile more often.

Cosmetic dentistry helps people like you be more confident and smile more often. 

Of course, cosmetic dentistry can also help to correct dental issues like structural anomalies and can fix bite problems too. 

Here are 4 common cosmetic dentistry procedures

Dental Bonding 

Dental bonding helps to fill gaps and cover stains or chips on the teeth. It’s done by applying resin to the existing tooth. This resin comes in many different colors and shades to match the natural tooth.

After application, the dental resin is dried with a high intensity light or through the use of chemicals. There is no discomfort in dental bonding and only minor roughing of the tooth surface is required. Additionally, it can be done in one visit and is relatively inexpensive.  

Tooth Contouring & Reshaping 

This is a quick, inexpensive, non-invasive form of cosmetic dentistry that allows your dentist to pretty dramatically fix your smile. It can fix overlaps, shallow pits and grooves in enamel, smooth worn edges, and fill chipped teeth as well.

A polishing instrument is used to remove just a little enamel and then the dentist reforms the tooth. Prior to performing the procedure, the dentist should do x-rays to ensure the tooth can withstand the enamel removal.

The tooth contouring and reshaping procedure is finished by smoothing and polishing the edges of the tooth and usually requires at least one follow-up visit.

Tooth Whitening 

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that can remove tooth stains due to tea, coffee, cigarettes, and wine. Whitening is done with a bleaching gel – usually either hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. The gel breaks down, releasing oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel and dentin to degenerate stains. The length of time for results depends on the source of the stain and can be hours or weeks.

Crowns & Bridges 

Dental crowns and dental bridges can be used to repair a tooth or teeth after an accident or fix a tooth or teeth that fell victim to decay or disease. A crown is an artificial replacement for the upper part of the tooth or teeth. A bridge involves replacing a tooth or teeth with an alternate tooth or teeth—using crowns bonded on adjacent teeth.

Of course, there are several other cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you achieve a smile that makes you more confident – and happy and healthier too! The best thing to do is to visit your dentist and find out what options and choices you have to give you the perfect smile. If you are in the Milwaukee or Greenfield area, we’d love to help you.
