What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is treatment which your dentist feels would improve your smile.
This can be done in many ways. Discuss your options with your dentist.
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedure. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discoloured or chipped tooth. This treatment is simple and invasive with immaculate results.
This is a way of rebuilding or reshaping an entire tooth. Even the most badly decayed tooth can often be restored by crowning to match other teeth.
Veneers are a way of resurfacing a tooth. Small porcelain shells are placed onto the front of the teeth and bonded into place using dental adhesives.
Replacement of missing teeth
Missing teeth may be replaced by dentures, bridgework or implants. Dentures are removable whilst bridgework is a way permanently fixing a new tooth to adjacent teeth. Dental implants are fixed to the jaw after removing compromised teeth and are the closest to the real thing but are costly and involve surgery.
