Top cosmetic dentistry treatments
When a person sees another person, the first thing he or she notices is a smile. This is the reason people are looking for ways for them to improve their smiles. For this, the combination of science, art, and cosmetic dentistry come together to improve the dental appearance of the teeth as well as the smile further boosting the self-esteem of the patient.
Since such a vast diversity of treatments are present to choose from, people do not know what is best suited for them. To help you decide about what are the best cosmetic dental treatments by Dr. Ostromecki, some of them listed as follows:
Teeth whitening is the top most common cosmetic treatment that people get nowadays. Teeth whitening is used to whiten the teeth that have been stained. This procedure works by the removal of internal as well as external stains from the teeth whitening lengthens the shades of the teeth 5 to 10 times lighter in color.
Dental implants have many benefits over the traditional methods of replacing missing or extracted teeth, which have more benefits in terms of appearance and in its functions. That is used as an alternative to the dentures and bridges which look and feel like a real tooth
A dental implant is a screw-like titanium post that is inserted into the jaw bone where the tooth is missing. That bone grows back and around the fixated implant, fixing it securely to the bone. After it has bonded to the bone, a crown is placed over it which is attached to the adjacent tooth.
A type of dental veneer that is the most common today is porcelain veneers. They are tooth-colored laminations that are directly cemented to the tooth surface after slightly grinding the surface of the teeth. They are used to hide a kind of abnormalities like cracked teeth, or smaller than normal size teeth and to close the gaps between the teeth.
An alternative to veneers is tooth bonding, which produces instant results as a tooth-colored composite plastic resin is bonded to the surface of the tooth with a laser or ultra-violet light. The procedure disguises discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, and cracks in the tooth enamel.
While veneers are custom-made in a laboratory, bonding for a single tooth can be done in a single visit to the dentist. Bonding is one of the simplest and least costly cosmetic dental treatments but will need replacing more frequently than veneers.
Dental bridges consist of artificial teeth fused to a frame, and they are used to replace several missing teeth while helping to retain the shape of the face and ease the stress on the bite function. The bridge is supported by implants or teeth adjacent to the gap, while the middle section replaces the lost tooth.
