Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetics and appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures do this job by enhancing the patient's dental aesthetics in terms of color, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance.
Cosmetic dentistry can fix and address several dental concerns that include the following:
There are many benefits of cosmetic dentistry. The most noticeable benefit is an improved appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can correct many dental problems, such as discolored, misshapen, chipped, or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can also improve the function of your teeth and make it easier to eat, chew, and speak. The other benefits include:
At River Family Dentistry, we offer the following services to correct damage, repair defects, and enhance your smile's appearance. Our treatments include the following:
Dental veneers are a commonly used cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve the appearance of damaged or stained teeth. Veneers are thin, tooth-like shells custom made from porcelain that cover the front of the tooth. They are bonded onto the tooth to camouflage cosmetic imperfections, such as staining or chips.
If a tooth is severely decayed, broken, or cracked, a dental crown may be recommended. Dental crowns are custom-fitted to cover the damaged tooth with lifelike porcelain material. The crown acts as a layer of protection for the damaged tooth and also helps restore its appearance.
Dental bridges are restorations that can replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge will fill the empty space, restoring your smile. A bridge is cemented to healthy teeth for support.
Dental implants are surgically-implanted titanium posts. Through the process of osseointegration, the dental implant fuses with the jawbone, mimicking a natural root. On the top of the implant, the artificial tooth is placed. Dental implants can be used to support single crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants provide the most stable, long-lasting solution for missing teeth.
Teeth whitening entails bleaching the teeth to make them whiter and brighter. During the teeth whitening procedure, a dental professional applies a bleaching agent containing hydrogen peroxide to the surface of a patient's teeth. The bleaching agent is then activated using a special light, which creates a chemical reaction that breaks up stains in the teeth.
Patients may need to have their teeth whitened several times to achieve the desired results.
Orthodontic treatments include dental braces and Invisalign aligners, which straighten the teeth and correct crooked jaws.
Gum contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that corrects a gummy smile by making the gums less prominent. It reshapes the gum line, making the smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Gum grafts are a cosmetic dental procedure that can address a variety of gum concerns. For example, if you have gum recession, the gum tissue around your teeth can be pulled away from the roots of your teeth. This creates a "toothy" appearance and can also make your teeth more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. A gum graft procedure can correct this issue.
