5 Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

It doesn’t matter whether your teeth are stained, chipped, or misaligned –  cosmetic dentistry has a solution for all of it. Cosmetic dentistry refers to certain dental procedures that can help a person improve their aesthetic appearance by giving them a smile makeover. Everyone wants their smile to look healthy and bright, but not everyone is born with the same gene. With the help of cosmetic dentistry, your local Penrith dentist can fix almost all the dental issues and can help you get that perfect smile you have always wanted.

More than 99% of Australians believe that a smile is a crucial social asset, which is why cosmetic dentistry procedures have become quite common nowadays. Usually, cosmetic dental treatments are viewed as optional treatments, but some have restorative benefits. What kind of treatment a person needs is advised by their dentist after careful examination. Even though cosmetic dentistry is highly effective, not all treatments are suitable for every person. Your oral health plays a crucial role in whether you can go under a certain cosmetic dentistry treatment or not. In this article, we have mentioned some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures that are undertaken. Let’s take a look:

Dental Veneers

Veneers have been around for quite a while now and are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. Veneers can give someone a perfect smile by fixing tiny imperfections like discoloration, chipped teeth, gaps, etc. They are made from porcelain or a resin composite material and are highly effective. However, porcelain veneers are preferred over veneers made from other materials because of their reflective properties and durability against stains. This cosmetic procedure can also help you fix worn out and misaligned teeth by covering them with veneers. You will have to consult with your dentist about what kind of smile you are trying to achieve, and they will guide you about dental veneers accordingly. The procedure usually takes two weeks but can take up to a month, depending on the case.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is probably the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure out there, as everyone wants a bright and shiny smile. According to research, people are not as worried about misaligned or chipped teeth as they are about yellow teeth. That is why teeth whitening is widely popular among the general population. The best part about this procedure is that it is cost effective and you can get it done in one sitting or it can be done at home under supervision. It is the most affordable way of enhancing your smile and regaining self-confidence.

Dental Crown

If you have a damaged tooth, then you can get it fixed with cosmetic dentistry thanks to dental crowns. A dental crown can provide solutions for several tooth-related issues, including supporting damaged teeth or protecting heavily restored teeth. It can also help you cover a tooth that has had a root canal procedure and can last for more than a decade if you practice good oral hygiene. Many people that have severely broken down and discoloured teeth can restore their smile with dental crowns, which is a perfect solution for that problem. It is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that is suitable for most people.

Invisalign

Every person with misaligned teeth wants to correct them, but most of them don’t like the idea of putting wires in their mouth. Luckily, we now have another orthodontic solution for misaligned teeth, and this one doesn’t require any wires or brackets. Invisalign is often referred to as invisible braces which can help you fix your “crooked”  teeth without metal wires and brackets. The best part about Invisalign is that they are not fixed to your teeth, and you can remove them whenever you want, especially when eating and cleaning your teeth. Even though Invisalign’s cost is quite similar to ceramic and traditional braces, they take more time to show results. However, this cosmetic dentistry treatment is convenient and less painful.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure done to repair a broken tooth or a tooth suffering from discoloration or decay. During this treatment, the dentist removes the decay in your tooth and fills it with a bonding resin material that matches your teeth. The procedure is a little more complicated than it sounds and is by far the simplest way to replace lost tooth structure. It is usually the starting point for most cosmetic procedures.
