5 Cosmetic Dentistry Options for Natural Looking Teeth

Posted on: May 2, 2018

If you do not like the look of your smile, consider the merits of cosmetic dentistry. There are several cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures available to make flawed teeth look natural.

Here is a look at five of the most popular dental options to make your teeth appear clean, healthy and attractive.

1. Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are one of the most effective cosmetic dentistry solutions. Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the tooth in question. Veneers have a thickness similar to contact lenses. Minimal drilling is required to place veneers on the teeth. Whether you are interested in remedying imperfections or if you are looking for a way to bolster tooth strength, dental veneers will help.

This is the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for teeth that have darkened in hue, excessively spaced and/or crowding one another. Even misaligned teeth and chipped teeth look quite attractive after applying veneers. Once your dental veneers are in place, your teeth will blend in perfectly with one another to create a lovely smile.

2. Dental Bonding

If your teeth have fairly minor problems such as general wear or discoloration, a heavy-duty solution might not be necessary. Instead, opt for dental bonding and those minor problems will be concealed so your chompers look fantastic. Dental bonding involves the precise matching of composite materials to your current teeth to cover discoloration, reshape teeth and fill unsightly gaps.

3. Contouring

Contouring, also referred to as reshaping or tooth sculpting, is one of the fastest means of remedying crooked, chipped or uneven teeth. Contouring sometimes works in combination with bonding to ensure the patient's smile meets its potential. After contouring, you will not hesitate to smile, laugh and talk to others.

4. Ceramic Crowns

If you need a ceramic dental crown, you will likely have concerns as to how it will look when you part your lips to smile. Fortunately, ceramic crowns provide the strength and security of traditional dental crowns while blending in with the surrounding teeth. Take advantage of this cosmetic dentistry solution and you will once again be proud of your smile.

5. Teeth Whitening

Your teeth will gradually discolor as time progresses. Everything from injury to illness, flawed oral hygiene, consuming certain foods/beverages and using tobacco can compromise the look of your teeth. Teeth whitening beautifies the teeth, providing them with a lovely white hue you are proud to put on display.

Teeth whitening can take place in the dentist's office or on your own with at-home teeth whitening trays. In fact, the dentist can custom tailor a teeth whitening tray for your mouth's dimensions to guarantee the whitening agent does not reach your gums.

However, oral health professionals and patients who have tried different forms of teeth whitening agree whitening procedures at the dentist's office are vastly superior to others. You can walk into the dentist's office with discolored teeth and walk out an hour or so later with gorgeous white teeth.
