Thanks to advancements in modern dental care, a variety of options are available to help any person have a dazzling new smile more easily today than ever before.
Today's top cosmetic dental treatment options include:
Whitening ------ The most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedure, many whitening options are now available to consumers in a wide range of prices. Dentist-supervised treatments remain the AACD recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.
Bonding ------ An option for chipped or cracked teeth, bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth's surface, sculpted into shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile.
Implants ------ A replacement for dentures, implants are a stronger, more attractive option for replacing missing or lost teeth. An anchor is placed in the patient's jaw, and a life-like ceramic restoration is built around it and matched to the original tooth color.
Veneers ------ An increasingly popular procedure, veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made laminates that are affixed directly to the teeth. They are a great option for closing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that did not respond well to whitening procedures.
As with any dental procedure, consumers are recommended consult with their dentist before undergoing any cosmetic dental treatment.
