The Popularity of Cosmetic Dentistry
Over the last decade, there’s been a dramatic increase in the interest of cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence.
Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we’re able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless, and surprisingly affordable treatments. We offer several cosmetic dentistry treatments here at Franklinville Dental, and our patients love their results.
What Can Cosmetic Dental Treatments Do?
Your smile speaks before you even say a word, and the primary goal is always to give you more confidence in your smile. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can:
- Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
- Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
- Improve or correct bites.
- Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
- Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
- Replace missing teeth.
- Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are quite a few types of cosmetic dentistry ranging from very subtle tweaks to more dramatic procedures. Some popular cosmetic dental treatments include:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental bonding
While the primary purpose of cosmetic dentistry procedures is to improve your smile, they can also be used for medical purposes, such as correction after a mouth injury.
Dental Implants and Mini Dental Implants
Dental implants are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. They’re made of tooth-like materials that are permanently attached to your gums, acting as replacement teeth. This is different from porcelain veneers, which are simply porcelain coverings over your real teeth.
Dental implants are similar to dentures, but since they’re permanently fixed to your gums, they’re not removable..
Mini dental implants have the same structure as regular implants, but they’re smaller. They’re also comprised of a one-piece screw that’s less than 3mm in diameter, unlike conventional dental implants. If you lost a tooth due to injury, tooth decay, or any other reason, dental implants can help restore your smile beautifully.
Oral Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgery, also referred to as facial cosmetic surgery,is a surgical specialty focusing on reconstructive surgery of the oral cavity, the mouth, and jaw. A maxillofacial surgeon is a dental specialist with advanced medical knowledge of conditions affecting your teeth and jaw.
