Demand for cosmetic dentistry and surgery is up! And we know why. A great smile makes you feel confident and look better too. This blog outlines some of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry our patients request and we perform.
Gingivectomy is a procedure that exposes more of the teeth, therefore showing whiter, healthier teeth underneath. Typically this cosmetic dentistry (also known as gum contouring or gum reshaping) is best for people with uneven gums. But this is not always the case. Only have this procedure performed by a professional dentist.
Composite Resin Restoration
This is another common type of cosmetic dentistry. This restoration process corrects chipped teeth or fills in the cavities. This procedure helps you get an even, natural covering over your teeth and a whiter, more even smile.
The best thing about teeth whitening is how quickly the dentistry can be performed and how great the results are. Teeth whitening, as the name suggests, brings you a whiter and therefore a more confident smile. Please note, we suggest avoiding home teeth whitening kits if you have teeth sensitivity. Also, note that many home whitening kits contain abrasive ingredients that can damage your enamel.
Tooth shaping is great for people with long, pointed and/or uneven teeth. Your teeth will become even through the dentist’s polishing. This procedure is painless and doesn’t cost much at all.
Many of our patients love dental veneers. This ultra thin layer is placed over your tooth to drastically improve the aesthetic look of your upper or lower teeth. These can be composite or porcelain and can improve the cosmetic look of uneven teeth and/or cover imperfections.
