- Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is the process of lightening the color of a patient’s teeth to ensure they look bright and appealing. When done correctly, this process lightens the color of your teeth by several shades and can remove unsightly stains from the surface as well. This is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today. Teeth whitening is a relatively simple and quick procedure during which:
- The dentist places a mouth guard that covers your gums and lips to protect the soft tissue from whitening agents.
- They then place a whitening agent on a specially designed dental tray, which is often customized to fit your teeth.
- The tray is placed on your teeth and allowed to sit for a specific period of time.
- The whitening agents break down and produce oxygen, which in turn whitens the teeth.
The whitening process takes around three to four weeks to complete. It includes a combination of office visits and at-home treatments to get the best results.
- Bonded White Fillings
Tooth decay is a common ailment that compromises the appearance and integrity of the teeth. One of the most common treatments for this is bonded white fillings. These fillings replace lost dental matter and reinforce the tooth’s structure. The white color ensures they blend in easily with the natural color of your teeth and aren’t as visible to others during conversations.
The filling is used to treat all kinds of mild dental damage like cavities, chips, cracks, etc. Many patients choose these fillings over unsightly amalgam fillings, which are dark and stand out against the translucent white color of natural teeth. The filling is molded carefully to ensure it fits in with your bite. A skilled dentist will make sure there’s no unusual gap or misalignment when they apply the fillings.
- Porcelain Veneers
Natural teeth have a tendency to become yellow and sustain damage over time. This is more common with people who have a lifestyle that involves smoking, drinking wine, or consuming excessive coffee. Porcelain veneers are a great way to continue consuming your favorite food items, while keeping the teeth safe.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are glued to the surface of the teeth, with dental cement. They mask discoloration, small cracks or chips, and give your teeth an even appearance. Veneers are more resistant to stains and damage, and can easily last for 10-15 years with good maintenance. They look like natural teeth and have the same color and translucency.
If your teeth aren’t properly aligned or straight, they can compromise the beauty of your smile. The best way to fix this issue is to wear braces for an extended period of time. Most people hesitate to wear braces because they are unsightly and can make them self-conscious about their appearance. Invisalign is the best alternative to regular metal braces because it is nearly invisible. It needs only 12 months of careful use to realign the teeth and ensure they’re straight.
- Smile Makeovers
Smile makeovers are customized packages where the dentist combines different treatments to ensure the patient has a beautiful smile. The packages can involve everything from dental restoration to whitening based on the patient’s specific requirements. All of the procedures mentioned above can be included in a smile makeover package.
