At Advanced Dental Arts NW, cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and smile. While the primary goal of general dentistry is to maintain oral health, cosmetic dentistry goes beyond that by improving the aesthetics of the teeth and smile.
The aesthetic aspects of a person's smile can significantly impact their self-confidence and overall well-being. Cosmetic dentistry aims to address various dental imperfections and give individuals a smile they can feel proud of. By improving the appearance of their teeth, cosmetic dentistry can boost a person's self-esteem, enhance their social interactions, and positively impact their professional and personal relationships.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Also known as teeth bleaching, this procedure removes stains and discoloration from the teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain or composite resin bonded to the teeth' front surface. They can be used to correct teeth that are chipped, stained, misaligned, or have gaps between them.
This involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth and then shaping and polishing it to improve their appearance. Dental bonding can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps, or change the tooth's shape.
Also known as caps, dental crowns are custom-made restorations covering a tooth completely. They can restore the shape, size, and strength of a damaged or severely decayed tooth while improving its appearance.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post surgically placed into the jawbone and act as a replacement for the tooth root. A crown is attached to the implant, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.
