Cosmetic Dentistry: Understanding the Different Types

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the art of taking an imperfect smile and transforming it into a radiant smile that you just can’t hide. There are plenty of treatments and options that will help you achieve that smile you’ve always wanted. Come and visit one of our cosmetic dentist to learn more about the options available to you.

Cosmetic dentistry is classified as any dental service performed to help correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

At 3v Dental a wide variety of cosmetic options are offered. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns

There are so many ways to fix stained, missing or broken teeth. An office visit with one of our professionals can help you understand what is needed to fix your teeth, how long it will take, and the results you can expect. Come in and talk with us to find out more about:

Dental Implant Restorations

Missing teeth can cause issues with chewing and speaking, as well as a lack of confidence when you smile. A dental implant will permanently fix this problem. A replacement tooth root will be placed in the first stage of this two-step treatment. Next, a replacement tooth will be attached to the replacement root. This tooth will look and feel like your original tooth. Dental implant restorations will fill that hole in your smile.

Add an Impression with Custom Veneers

Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are placed over your tooth. These are used to cover stained or broken teeth, giving them aesthetic appeal. The thin sheets of porcelain are permanently affixed to the front of the tooth to fix gaps, chips and brown teeth. The results are beautiful, white, even teeth.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening Brings Brighter Smiles!

Zoom! Teeth Whitening can help you dazzle friends and co-workers with your pearly whites. Using a peroxide gel and a special UV light, stains are penetrated and broken up. The treatment can brighten teeth up to eight shades in just one treatment.

Straighten-up with Invisalign

When your teeth are crowded together it can be tough to brush, floss or feel confident. To fix this problem without bulky braces, Invisalign aligners can help. Special removable aligners will gently move your teeth over time until you have a straight, healthy smile. These clear aligners can be worn at work or in public without anyone knowing you have them on.

Dental Bonding Builds Confidence

Using tooth-colored resin, a cosmetic dentist can fix chipped teeth. ‘Bonding’ permanently adheres the resin to the tooth, replacing missing parts of the tooth for a more pleasing appearance.

With the technology and knowledge available today, there is no reason to walk around with a dull, discolored smile. A confident, happy and healthy smile can be achieved using these procedures. Come in for a consultation to find answers on the costs, time lines and expected results of these and other procedures.
