Helping your teeth to stay healthy and look pristine throughout your adult life requires general dentistry services, but some may need general combined with cosmetic dentistry services. Not every patient needs cosmetic dentistry, but if your smile is not quite where you would like it to be, cosmetic procedures can help. North View Dental offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services for our Ogden patients to help correct multiple issues. Below are some popular cosmetic dentistry services that can help boost confidence in your smile.
1- Teeth Whitening Or Bleaching
One of the most common cosmetic dentistry services is teeth whitening or bleaching. This service fills a most common need for dental patients to increase the whiteness and brightness of their teeth. Teeth whitening can be very effective when done by a professional. If you are seeking bleaching make sure to only bleach every so often so as to not cause extreme sensitivity. While there are many products on the market to complete teeth whitening at home, having it done by a dentist is still a common practice.
2- Dental Veneers
Veneers are small porcelain attachments that are used to cover some discoloration or misshapen teeth or to help support your implants. Dental veneers fit over your original teeth that do not damage the original tooth, but in order to install veneers, your tooth enamel will have to be drilled down. When choosing veneers, you are making a permanent commitment because tooth enamel does not grow back or regenerate. Veeners are often used to increase confidence in one’s smile because they do not discolor and help protect teeth from falling out, causing a gap in your smile.
3- Correcting With Invisalign
The clear correct braces alternative of Invisalign can be done by your dentist rather than an orthodontist. Invisalign will help improve the alignment of your teeth inside your mouth and help limit jaw problems. Invisalign can be less invasive than traditional braces and is a good option for adults who want a more discreet look.
Invisalign is considered one of the cosmetic dentistry services because it helps to improve the look and feel of your teeth. Having your teeth in the right place helps you look better and also helps with eating, talking, and swallowing.
4- Stopping Decay With Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are placed on teeth when the decay becomes too much for a traditional filling. These caps can help those with decaying teeth, damaged teeth, or chipped teeth. A well-designed crown will fit snuggly against your existing tooth and will look the most natural.
Dental crowns are one of the most durable cosmetic dentistry services because they are able to mimic the natural ridges of your teeth. They can last at least 10 years and often beyond that when you practice good oral hygiene habits.
Patients who have gaps in their smile or who struggle with frequent cavities, or decaying teeth find implants to be the best option. Implants are proven to last for much longer than other cosmetic dentistry services. If you do want to have dental implants you will need to have a strong bone structure in order to hold them, so if you have severe decay or jaw deterioration, dental implants may not work for you.
6- Gum Tissue Recontouring
Changing the shape of your gums is another popular item on the list of cosmetic dentistry services. Some patients have excessive gum tissue and worry about a “gummy smile.” Gum contouring can help your smile improve without exposing too much of your teeth. If you expose too much new surface of the teeth, you may experience tooth sensitivity. Having cosmetic dentistry services completed by a licensed dentist or oral surgeon will give patients the best results.
