Are you someone who has been considering cosmetic dentistry for a while but you’re not sure you can easily distinguish between one treatment and the next? It’s important to keep in mind that when you feel ready to come in to talk about the way your smile looks, you don’t need to come in with a full set of cosmetic-related knowledge. We can help you become familiar with options along the way. However, if you’re interested in getting to know the basics, we understand wishing to feel informed. Let’s fill you in on those essentials with a quick refresher.
Whitening is frequently requested from patients seeking cosmetic dentistry. It’s a safe, quick, and convenient way to erase years of staining on your smile, so you can say goodbye to a yellowed or not-so-vibrant smile and hello to the sparkling, white feature you’ve been hoping to see.
When you think of bonding, remember that it’s a helpful way to create what appears to be more tissue. If you need to fix a chip in your tooth, fill a small space between your teeth, make a tooth look longer than it really is, and so forth, this is the cosmetic dentistry treatment for you.
Want to make some of that tooth tissue go away because a tooth is a little too long or because you’re dealing with a sharp or awkward shape? No problem. Dental contouring can help!
Veneers are known as little superheroes in the world of cosmetic dentistry. Why? Well, because they can accomplish almost any feat you’re hoping to achieve. Translation: They generally offer all of the benefits that you can receive from dental bonding, contouring, and whitening put together (and then some).
