Cosmetic dentistry offers many options to enhance your smile, make you appear younger and enhance your self-esteem. Changing your smile can change your life.
Cosmetic Smile Makeovers with Porcelain Veneers
A smile makeover is what most people think of when they consider cosmetic dentistry. Dentists use porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns and implant crowns. The process is generally quick with just a few appointments, and each case is individually designed. This will give your smile a more complete and finished look. Some cases involve a single tooth and some require that all teeth be involved. It is more common that only a few teeth (4-8). Be sure to choose a dentist that has had experience with smile makeovers, and view his portfolio to make sure he can provide the look you want.
Professional Teeth Whitening
The simplest is teeth whitening. A mold is made of your teeth and a bleaching solution is used to gradual change the color or your natural teeth. This will not change the color of any fillings or crowns. The bleaching process can be ongoing and done on an as needed basis to brighten your smile.
Another option is tooth reshaping (enameloplasty). By removing small amounts of enamel dentists can improve the looks of the teeth and smile. It is limited in scope and outcome but it is virtually non invasive.
Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty and most dentists perform some type of cosmetic dentistry.
