Although not a separate speciality on its own, Cosmetic Dentistry is the area that deals with improving a person’s smile. It focuses on improving the teeth’s aesthetic appearance and not necessarily the function.
Primarily, Cosmetic Dentistry enhances the colour, shape, size, position, alignment, and overall appearance of the patient’s smile. While most cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective, they can sometimes be required, particularly in cases of dental injury.
The team at The White House Dental Clinic offers a wide range of procedures designed to improve your smile. Some of them are –
Teeth Whitening Home Kit
Teeth whitening is one of the most basic treatments provided by a cosmetic dentist. It involves the removal of stains and the use of bleaching agents that make your teeth appear whiter. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your smile for your wedding day or perfect your look for business meetings, whitening is simple, convenient, affordable and safe. This teeth whitening is done in the comfort of your own home.
Composite bonding (also known as tooth bonding or dental bonding) offers a solution for minor or damage or gaps in teeth. Bonding is usually used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth or for fixing discolouration. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth so it will appear as though it is a natural part of the tooth.
Bonding is a non-invasive procedure. For composite bonding to be applied the surface of the tooth only has to be roughened to help the resin bond, meaning the structure of the tooth remains intact. Bonding improves your smile quickly without causing further damage to your teeth.
A composite veneer is a thin shell of material that goes over your natural tooth to cover up flaws. The process is considered minimally invasive. It’s a cosmetic treatment that primarily enhances the look of front teeth. You can get just one veneer or several to make your smile look better and give your confidence a huge boost.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over and replace an entire tooth at and above the gum line. Crowns are popular in restorative dentistry – meaning they restore the appearance, shape, size, and strength of a tooth.
Cosmetically, crowns are used to cover severely discoloured or misshapen teeth. They are made from various materials such as metals, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, etc.
Along with dental crowns, dental bridges also play a great role in restorative dentistry. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They are made of crowns that are cemented on the natural teeth present on either side of the gap and a hollow tooth representing the missing tooth. The replacement bridge will be matched to the rest of your teeth to give you as natural a result as possible.
Improves Appearance and Self-Confidence
There is no denying the fact that when we look better, we feel great. This includes having a good smile. Stained, discoloured, damaged, or missing teeth hamper our smiles, negatively affecting our self-worth. The lack of self-esteem acts as a barrier, preventing people from reaching their full potential in both their professional and personal lives.
Cosmetic dentistry allows us to achieve our million-dollar smiles, greatly improving our confidence.
Correcting Dental Problems And Future Prevention
Your dentist at The White House Dental Clinic will assess your teeth and give you a treatment plan detailing any issues that you might have. Cosmetic dentistry procedures that correct that position of teeth, in turn, correct issues like overcrowding and TMJ problems, etc.
Cavities are taken care of; broken or chipped teeth are repaired and reinforced.
Improvement in the position and shape of your teeth enhances their appearance. Additionally, they also make it easier to clean and keep them free from plaque deposits. This is essential for the prevention of future dental issues and prolonging dental health.
Improves Quality Of Life
When you have broken, damaged, or missing teeth, you suffer in performing basic functions such as speaking or chewing. Cosmetic dentistry aims at correcting these ailments, improving the quality of life as a result.
Most cosmetic dentistry treatments are pretty painless and have quick recovery times. A person can jump right back into regular life after their appointment. Teeth whitening procedures, composite bonding and composite veneers require little to no prior preparation. And with the right care, a patient receives a perfect smile that can last for years.
While a lot of cosmetic dentistry procedures are a large financial investment, the benefits greatly outweigh the cost. Taking care of any issue at the earliest stages prevents them from worsening and saves you a lot of money in the long run.
With developments in dental technology, dental costs have been brought down and are more accessible to people from all financial backgrounds.
