How to restore your smile – common cosmetic dentistry treatments

If you are not happy about how your teeth look, then, be rest assured, because nowadays there are plenty of cosmetic procedures aimed to enhance your smile. You may have suffered an accident that left you with a chipped tooth or you think your smile is not white enough, but this is no longer a problem. Here are some treatments that can help you solve any imperfection:

Dental implants

This treatment is the safest and most reliable one recommended for those who suffer from complete loss of a dental structure. This means that if you have lost a tooth because of decay or trauma and you want to recover it, tooth implants are the most suitable choice for you. The procedure involves creating an artificial structure aimed to replace the original one. This new construction is made of two main parts: the root (a pivot inserted inside the jaw bone) and the upper part (also known as the crown of the tooth). The artificial root represents a strong foundation for the entire implant, becoming integrated part of the denture, while the crown imitates perfectly the natural look. Whether you are dealing with one or more missing teeth, this treatment provides you with an efficient solution.

Veneers

This treatment involves the application of thin shells above the original dental structures, in order to modify their form, colour or shape. The most popular type of veneers are those made of porcelain, since they are also the most resistant ones, but the shells can also be made of a special composite material or ceramic. So, in case you are dealing with misalignment, crooked, chopped and chipped teeth or unaesthetic gaps, then veneers are the right solution for you. As you can see, dentists recommend the treatment for a wide variety of cosmetic problems. The shells are easy to install and they also have the great advantage of looking extremely natural. In addition to this, if you invest in proper maintenance and pay attention not to damage them, you will be able to enjoy these new structures up to ten years.

 

Teeth whitening

Believe it or not, your life style has a great influence on the colour of your teeth. Habits such as smoking or eating certain foods (chocolate, coffee etc) can lead to premature discoloration of the enamel. If you are one of those people who are not happy with the colour of their teeth, the good news is that cosmetic experts have come up with an efficient and long lasting solution: professional whitening (also known as bleaching). The process can be performed in a dedicated clinic or at home, as long as you keep in mind the doctor’s recommendations and only use a special solution. What you have to do is apply a certain substance on the teeth and then use a device provided with laser light to restore the natural shade of the enamel.
