Hiding your smile? Make your dream smile a reality with cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work used to improve the appearance of a person's smile. Dr. Laura Koch, Dr. Andrew Soulimiotis, and Dr. Sunny Patel at Dentistry for Midtown in Atlanta, GA, offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures to their patients. Read on to determine which cosmetic dentistry service is right for you.
1. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is the application of composite resin using a light, which bonds the resin materials to the teeth to improve the appearance of a patient's smile. Dental bonding is used to fix cracked teeth, gapped teeth, chipped teeth, and decayed teeth. Bonding is also used to improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
2. Dental Crowns
Dental crowns can give you a smile you love. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" your Midtown Atlanta dentist can put on your teeth. The purpose of a dental crown is to improve the appearance of the tooth or make it stronger. Crowns are used to cover misshapen or discolored teeth, protect weak teeth, restore worn down or broken teeth, and cover teeth with large fillings.
3. Porcelain Veneers
Natural-looking porcelain veneers are gaining popularity and patients are demanding them more often. A porcelain veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, changing its shape, length, and size. Veneers are used to fix teeth that are discolored, chipped, worn down, or uneven. Veneers improve the aesthetics of a smile and protect the tooth enamel from damage.
4. Dental Implants
Millions of American adults suffer tooth loss -- mostly due to gum disease, decay, or injury. Dental implants are the gold standard for the replacement of missing teeth. According to AAID, dental implants can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time by your dentist. The benefits of dental implants include improved appearance, easier eating, improved speech, and improved comfort.
5. Dental Bridges
Dental bridges can fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Bridgework is a low-cost alternative to dental implant restoration. A fixed bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or multiple missing teeth by joining a false tooth/teeth to the surrounding teeth or dental implants. A fixed bridge cannot be removed by the patient because it is attached to the mouth.
6. Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening can give you a bright, white movie-star smile. In-office teeth whitening uses a light and bleaching gel to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades in about an hour while you relax in the dentist's chair. Take-home teeth whitening kits involve filling a dental tray with a peroxide-bleaching agent. The tray is worn a few hours per day for one or two weeks.
