Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry may not be imperative to your survival, but it could make a positive difference to your life. Having confidence opens doors and a great smile invites opportunity.

As we grow older, our teeth might need an upgrade. It could involve a proper cleaning, some chips to be filled, or sadly even a tooth or two to be replaced. If this is the case, having your aesthetic issues attended to will not only give you more confidence but could improve your health. For example, replacing missing teeth will help you to chew better and absorb more nutrition from your food.

Dentist at Green Apple Dental uses these techniques to put a genuinely stunning smile on your face.

In a nutshell:

Composite Bonding

This procedure is used to repair damaged, discolored or decayed teeth. A material that matches the color of tooth enamel is applied onto the tooth. Your cosmetic dentist will ‘sculpt’ your tooth to be as good as new. It is then cured with a high-intensity light.

This procedure is an effective way of covering a damaged tooth to give it the appearance of a healthy tooth. It is one of the more economical procedures to fix decayed, cracked, chipped or worn down teeth.

Dental Veneers

 These are made of the medical-grade ceramic cast to match the individual needs of each patient. The veneers must resemble the natural teeth, and look completely natural. Like bonding, this is a solution to many cosmetic problems such as crooked teeth, or gaps between teeth.Your dentist will use a dental adhesive to apply the veneer to the tooth. The veneer is a shell that covers the damaged enamel to mask imperfections.

Dental Implants

Implants are used to replace missing teeth. The implant becomes the root to fit a crown and replace a tooth. Crowns are natural-looking teeth usually made of dental porcelain. There are other tooth replacement options, but this is by far the best and the longest-lasting.

Porcelain Bridge

If you have lost a tooth, a dental porcelain tooth called a crown, or cap can also replace it. The crown gets attached to the teeth on both sides of the gap and replaces the entire tooth down to the gum. Your dentist will be able to advise you as to the pros and cons of the various tooth replacement techniques.

Whitening Teeth

Teeth become stained over the years from drinking tea or smoking, and you might only need to whiten your teeth to put the sparkle back in your smile.

This is a basic cosmetic procedure that your dentist will perform at his or her office. The teeth are whitened or bleached after all the plaque, tartar and debris have been removed. The teeth’s surface is restored to its natural appearance. Alternatively, the teeth can be bleached to a lighter shade than their natural color to appear whiter and brighter.

Get a Smile Makeover Plan

When you visit your cosmetic dentist, he or she will discuss the best options for your smile and which restorative work will be best for you. You can then decide which procedures you feel are most important to you and work out a plan to phase the treatments and make your smile as good as new.
