Options Used by a Cosmetic Dentist

Teeth whitening are one of the most common procedures, which a cosmetic dentist performs today. Our teeth grow stained by so many different daily items like tobacco, soda, wine, alcohol, tea, coffee, or even poor dental hygiene. You can get the popular dental treatments for your teeth.

Everyone wants a pearly white smile, but still be allowed the drinks and habits they've grown to enjoy.

Dental Veneers

For incredibly discolored teeth, dental veneers may be the option. Sometimes bleaching just isn't enough and you need to take your teeth whitening a step further. A dental veneer is designed from porcelain laminate or composite. Then it's stuck to the front surface of the teeth.

Indirect Fillings:

Typical silver fillings stand out in pearly white teeth. So, if you're looking for an option that's tooth-like in appearance, you may opt for inlays and onlays, which are designed to fill in the cavity, which has formed in your mouth. Indirect fillings also use either porcelain laminate or composite, both of which are naturally tooth-like in color.

Composite Bonding

Another option for discolored teeth is composite bonding. This product can also be used in the repair of chipped, broken or decayed teeth. A cosmetic dentist will apply the bonding mater directly to your teeth and shape it like your original tooth, making each damaged tooth appear whole again. Composite is incredibly strong, especially once it's hardened with a specially designed high-intensity light. Bonding can also be used to whiten teeth by applying it over the discolored tooth.
