Your cosmetic dentist in Georgia understands how important a beautiful smile is to both your confidence and self-esteem. However, not everyone on the planet was born with perfectly straight teeth. In fact, most of your favorite celebrities have probably had some type of cosmetic dentistry procedure.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do For You
Cosmetic dentistry takes the tooth restoration process one-step further giving you a perfect smile.
While restoration dentistry restores your smile back to healthy function, cosmetic dentistry improves your smile with procedures such as cosmetic dental crowns and professional teeth whitening. In other words, cosmetic dentistry gives you what Mother Nature wasn’t able to.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are several types of cosmetic dentistry procedures with some overlapping from restoration to cosmetic. For example, dental implants replace missing teeth restoring your bite and function. While implants are restorative they are also cosmetic because they look just as natural, if not more so, than your real teeth. Dental implants are also beautiful.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Tooth whitening is very popular; in fact, it’s the most popular service available. Done in a single dental appointment or over time with custom-made whitening trays, professional teeth whitening is much safer than over the counter one size fits all trays, gels, pastes, rinses and strips.
Because over the counter products are not as strong as what you will find at Bela Family Dentistry, people have a tendency to leave the whitener on too long. If results aren’t evident, some lose patience applying too much too often. Sadly this can result in tooth sensitivity or worse yet, blue or chalky teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry and Bonding
Another cosmetic dentistry procedure available from your South Carolina cosmetic dentist that only takes a single dental appointment is also reversible. Cosmetic dental bonding is an easy and painless procedure that is completed in one dental visit.
Using a putty or resin that is matched to the rest of your tooth, the team from Bela Family Dentistry molds the dental product to the tooth before curing it with a light or laser for a natural looking finish.
Your dentist in Georgia uses bonding to fix chips, cracks and to make tooth longer. Small spaces between teeth are also an easy fix with cosmetic dental bonding. Cosmetic dentists often use bonding with enamel shaping for a beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneers for a Star Studded Smile
Arguably, the solution to the stars is porcelain veneers. Most people who rely on the camera for a job have had porcelain veneers. Dental veneers take two or three dental appointments and can change your entire smile.
Depending on your situation one, two, three, or an entire set of porcelain veneers is recommended. Just like bonding, veneers fix chips, cracks and lengthen teeth. However, veneers can also shorten teeth and make them look completely different than they do now. Yellow teeth are white again with porcelain veneers.
