Do you try and hide your smile from others because of misshaped, chipped, or broken teeth? If so, aesthetic dentistry services may be able to help.
Aesthetic dentistry combines both art and science to improve the appearance of your smile without compromising the functionality of the teeth.
Enjoy Personalized Treatment
When it comes to aesthetic dentistry, there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach. What works for one person might not be necessary for someone else, so your dentist will create an individualized treatment program. The goal is to restore the teeth to their original function while helping you to achieve a beautiful and natural smile. This is different from cosmetic dentistry which strictly focuses on changing the appearance of the teeth.
Types of Aesthetic Dentistry Services
There are many services that can be used as part of an aesthetic dentistry treatment. Some of the most common include:
Dental bonding. This process uses a thin, tooth-colored material to reshape the teeth. Your dentist will apply the resin to the tooth and use a specially-designed light to harden the material. This is a cost-effective and easy way to improve the smile.
Dental veneers. Veneers are tooth-colored attachments that adhere to the surface of the tooth to improve color, size, shape, and appearance of the existing teeth. This durable porcelain will resist stains and will match the shade of the other existing teeth.
Onlays. If your tooth has been extremely damaged and requires more intervention than just a filling, an onlay might be able to help. This durable restoration is made from porcelain or resin, and it will protect the tooth against future decay or damage.
