Candidates for cosmetic family dentistry include anyone with chipped, broken, crooked, uneven or discolored teeth. Everyone deserves a beautiful smile, and below are five of the most popular cosmetic family dentistry procedures performed by Atlantic Family Dentistry to help you achieve yours.
Composite bonding, commonly referred to as “bonding”, is a good cosmetic family dentistry choice for those whose teeth have staining, decay and other harm. Any decay is drilled from the tooth and the tooth-colored composite is spread over the tooth, molded to the shape of the tooth, and then cured under a special light until it hardens. This is a great option for families on a budget.
Inlays are used in family dentistry practices when the tooth is too decayed to hold a filling, the cusp of the tooth must not be decayed enough that it can support the placing of an inlay over the surface of the tooth. If the cusp of the tooth has too much decay, an onlay is placed over the entire tooth. Inlays and onlays constructed of composite resin and bonded to the tooth with dental cement. Upon placement of the inlay or onlay, the tooth becomes stronger and is protected from further damage
When a tooth must be removed, an implant can be placed where the tooth once sat. To place the implant, a small screw is placed in the gums for which to support the crown. Over time, the bone will fuse to the screw. Implants look so natural that it is almost impossible to tell which tooth is an implant and which are the natural teeth.
Veneers are a popular request for cosmetic dentists as they can completely transform any smile. Made of strong ceramic, the veneers are placed over the front of the patients existing teeth. Veneers are great for teeth that have noticeable gaps, chips, unevenness, and discoloration.
Commonly referred to as simply “bleaching”, this is a very simple procedure performed on teeth that have been discolored from food, drink, and smoking. Whitening restores stained teeth to their original shade of white, but can also be taken a step further to an even brighter shade of white than the teeth naturally are. A gel-like substance is applied to the teeth and a special light is applied to the teeth for the gel to take effect and whiten.
A common question regarding whitening is, “Why would a visit a cosmetic dentist near me when I can whiten my teeth at home.” The answer is simple: While at-home kits can greatly improve your smile by whitening your teeth by almost four shades, they cannot reach the level of nearly eight shades lighter that an in-office whitening can achieve.
