What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that is concerned with the aesthetics or appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, mouth, and even bite. This type of dentistry offers a wide array of treatment options to help improve a person’s smile. This is done through procedures that aim to improve the color of the teeth, correct bite problems, restore chipped or cracked teeth or align and straighten the teeth. Cosmetic dentistry deals with added benefit procedures that will not just improve your dental health, but will also improve your smile and boost your confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures and services offered by For You Dental
For You Dental offers cosmetic dentistry procedures that will improve the way your teeth look and the way you smile. These procedures include:
- Teeth whitening;
- Dental crowns and bridges; and,
- Porcelain Veneers.
One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures is tooth whitening. This procedure is used to whiten the teeth and instantly brighten your smile. Teeth whitening is ideally for people who suffer from discolored teeth due to staining food and drink, and bad habits such as coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco.
There are two kinds of teeth whitening systems, at-home teeth whitening and professional teeth whitening. Between the two, professional tooth whitening is safer and more effective because the procedure is administered and supervised by experienced dentists from For You Dental. This is unlike an at-home whitening system where patients are left on their own to use teeth whitening products without the supervision of dentists.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Both dental crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices offered by For You Dental to enhance the appearance, shape and structure of your teeth. While the two usually go with each other, there’s a difference between them.
Dental crowns refer to a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed on the tooth to restore broken, chipped or damaged teeth. Crowns are made of different materials like metal, porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. However, among the different materials used, the most popular is porcelain or ceramic dental crowns as these can be matched to the color of your teeth and are therefore more aesthetically pleasing than the others. Aside from restoring the teeth, dental crowns also act to protect the tooth structure from further damage, wear or tear and scraping.
On the other hand, dental bridges are used to bridge the gap between missing teeth. It works just like natural teeth and it keeps the other teeth from moving out of place, preventing gum diseases and bad bite caused by the movement of surrounding teeth. Like dental crowns, bridges can be made of different materials, but you can choose porcelain or ceramic to match the color of your teeth.
For You Dental is here to help you determine whether you are a good candidate for dental crowns and bridges. We’re also here to help you choose which materials to use for dental crowns and bridges based on cost, functionality, durability and aesthetic considerations.
Porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates are made of thin shells or slices of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your tooth. They are used to cover the front of the tooth to improve its appearance. Porcelain veneers come in different sizes and length and are individually crafted and bonded according to the exact size and shape of your teeth. Its color can also be matched to the color of your teeth.
For You Dental uses porcelain veneers for a number of cosmetic dentistry corrections. They are ideal for patients who have discolored or stained teeth, cracked and chipped teeth, worn down teeth, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth and those with teeth gaps in between where the veneer would close that gap.
