There are several cosmetic dental procedures that can help you improve the appearance of your teeth and mouth, and regain the natural, attractive smile. It is important to consult your dentist before conducting these cosmetic dental procedures.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays, also called indirect fillings, are used when there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling. They are used to strengthen the teeth and restore their shape. To make an inlay or on lay, the dentist takes a dental impression and then the dental laboratory will make an inlay or onlay from either ceramic or metal material.After the inlay or onlay is fabricated, it will then be cemented to the tooth.
Dental veneers will be bonded to the surface of your tooth to cover the original colour after the dentist removes a thin layer of the tooth surface. The advantage of using a dental veneer is that it only requires minimal tooth structure removal. Veneers are used to improve the colour, shape, alignment of the teeth. It can also close gaps, reshape the abnormally spaced teeth, and fix cracked, stained or worn-down teeth, providing a natural, attractive appearance.
There are two options for teeth whitening – in chair session or home regime.
Contact your dentist for a teeth-whitening consultation to brighten your smile.
Composite bonding is used to repair cracked, decayed, chipped, or discolored teeth. It can also be used to close gaps and reshape misaligned teeth, improving the appearance of your smile. Composite bonding is one option for cosmetic dental procedures.
Dental implants replace the root of missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. A dental implant can only be used on patients with healthy oral conditions because enough bone is needed to grow around the implant for support. A dental implant is fixed and it will not rely on adjacent teeth, which is more beneficial for your oral health. The dental implants fuse to your jaw bone, providing stable support for the artificial teeth and secure fit for the crowns and bridges
