When we first meet new people, we want to make a good first impression. Having a sparkling smile can help you do so. It’s important to ensure your smile is in the best condition.

Dental complications, however, can make people feel self-conscious about their smiles. Dental issues can range from discolorations to broken or missing teeth. Any of the above conditions can lower your self-confidence and can also be detrimental to your overall health.

Even so, all is not lost. Cosmetic dental practices can help you get a smile you’re proud to show off. A cosmetic dentist will carefully examine your case before suggesting treatments to fix or enhance your teeth. We have several cosmetic dental procedures available to treat a variety of aesthetic dental issues.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Makeovers

  • Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a process performed to either whiten discolored teeth or to increase the whiteness of the teeth. Teeth whitening can be done in the comfort of your home or at your dentist’s office.

This process is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia. Teeth whitening entails using a chemical peroxide gel, which is a whitening ingredient that penetrates the enamel without causing any damage. The peroxide reaches chromophore molecules and dissolves them, leaving behind whiter teeth.

This procedure can be done in one appointment. However, you may need multiple teeth whitening sessions to achieve the look you want.

  • Veneers

Veneers are thin coverings placed on top of teeth to give them a new look. They are placed on the teeth to improve their shape, color, and size. In most cases, veneers are applied to the front teeth to improve their appearance.

Each veneer is glued to an individual tooth permanently using a unique adhesive. If damaged, the veneers are replaceable.

The process of placing veneers is easy. The dentist cleans the teeth, polishes them, roughens the surface, applies a unique adhesive, and then places the veneer. It typically only requires one session.

A minimal amount of enamel might be shaved off to accommodate the dental veneers. A professional cosmetic dentist at the Dental Arts of Plymouth will conduct this procedure, so you can rest assured that only the necessary amount of enamel will be removed.

  • Direct resin bonding

This treatment option is most preferred for minor to moderate cosmetic complaints. It’s performed on decayed or chipped teeth. It improves the shape of the teeth, and in some cases, it fixes discolorations. It’s worth noting that this procedure is minimally invasive and entails no drilling or injections.

This cosmetic procedure involves applying a special tooth-colored plastic commonly known as dental composite resin. A dental bonding treatment requires only one session with the dentist.

  • Crowns

When teeth are severely damaged, conventional fillings or veneers will not be adequate for treating them. This is where crowns come in handy. Crowns are used to restore badly damaged teeth and improve their appearance and strength.

This process entails creating a cap using a ceramic, gold, or silver material. The cap is fitted over the damaged tooth and bonded permanently with a unique adhesive. A dental crown procedure usually takes two sessions. In some cases, additional treatment is needed, such as a root canal procedure or gum therapy. Anesthesia will be used as the tooth will have to be shaved down for the crown to fit.

Final Verdict

General health is vital for anyone, and so is dental health. As it has been said, prevention is always better than cure. As such, it’s always advisable to maintain proper dental care. Excellent dental care includes keeping the teeth and mouth clean by regularly brushing and flossing them. Regular dental care can also keep your smile looking bright and healthy.

If you are unhappy with your smile’s appearance, a smile makeover can improve your teeth in various ways, such as their color, size, and shape. At Dental Arts of Plymouth, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental care services. Book an appointment today to get started.
