Regardless of your age, your smile is one of your biggest assets. Teeth that are discolored chipped and misaligned can have a bearing on the way other people perceive you. Imperfect teeth are detrimental to your appearance, and they can adversely affect the way you speak and eat.
What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?
A cosmetic dentist can restore the function of your teeth. Cosmetic dentists have received additional training and can employ several unique techniques that enhance a patient’s smile and appearance. Even teeth that are free from decay and are in good condition can eventually discolor. One of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments in Bloomingdale is teeth whitening. Other patients may need more. A smile makeover can include dental implants, porcelain veneers, crowns, and bonding.
What Can a Cosmetic Dentist Do for You?
There are several techniques that a cosmetic dentist in Bloomingdale has at his or her disposal.
* Dental Implants: Although dentures and bridges are still in common use, many patients are turning to one or more dental implants when they have missing teeth. A dental implant starts with a small titanium pin or screw. The implant will eventually become one with the jawbone. It acts as a replacement tooth root. A crown is placed on top of the implant. Once the procedure is complete, the implant looks, feels, and acts no different from a natural tooth.
* Teeth Whitening: There are many “over-the-counter” tooth-whitening kits available. None of them can whiten teeth, as well as a cosmetic dentist, can. A cosmetic dentist can do a far better job, and it can be done much quicker and safer. Teeth whitening can result in an amazing difference in a single visit.
* Tooth Veneers: Over the years, it is not unusual for small surface cracks to appear, edges to chip and severe discoloration to appear. A cosmetic dentist can cover the damage with an extremely thin sliver of porcelain, permanently fixed to the surface of teeth using a strong dental adhesive.
These are only three of the many procedures available. The objective of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your appearance as well as your confidence.
