Cosmetic dentistry is a popular option for people who want a smile that they’re proud to show off. Whether you need to cover a crack, a stain, or some other flaw on your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve a whiter, more even smile. Crowns, Bridges, Veneers and Whitening are all forms of cosmetic dentistry.
Crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth that are broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown fully covers the tooth providing ideal esthetics and protection from future tooth fracture.
A bridge is a prosthetic tooth replacement that attaches on one or both sides to teeth prepared for dental crowns. A fixed bridge is permanently cemented onto the neighboring abutment teeth (crowned teeth) and consists of three basic units: the false tooth or teeth (called a pontic) and two abutment crowns. The style of bridge we suggest will depend upon the strength and health of the abutment teeth, as well as the location of the gap in relation to the rest of your dentition.
A popular way of improving smile esthetics is the use of veneers. Veneers can be used to cover over small chips or cracks in your teeth. If your teeth are uneven or there are gaps between them, veneers can help straighten out your smile without the expense and hassle of braces. A veneer requires far less tooth structure removal than a crown. A veneer is a thin porcelain facing (like an artificial fingernail), which replaces the defective enamel. It is bonded to the prepared tooth. This results in a beautiful, natural look which is both strong and resilient compared to natural enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.
