Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
How is cosmetic dentistry different than regular dentistry?
While general dentistry involves the routine exams, cleanings, and procedures that maintain your oral health, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance and aesthetics of your teeth and gums.
Cosmetic dentistry gives you healthy, radiant teeth. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve confidence and make you want to share your smile. With state-of-the-art materials, and tried and true dental techniques, cosmetic dentistry enhances appearance and enhances self-esteem.
Which cosmetic dentistry procedures are available?
Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments at Lee and Van Mieghem DDS include:
Tooth veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry technique for creating a beautiful smile. They consist of thin sections of durable porcelain that are custom made for the unique shape of your teeth.
Dental laboratories create the veneers to match the exact color and shape specifications provided by your dentist; once completed, they are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. With proper care and regular dental visits, veneers are quite durable and can last for several years.
Teeth whitening is becoming a popular cosmetic dentistry enhancement. Treatments today are fast and painless, and your dentist can even send you home with products to use on your own. Lee and Van Mieghem DDS offers several different types of teeth whitening procedures that give you a gleaming, brilliant smile.
The Invisalign system uses 3-D computer imaging technology to create a complete treatment plan for straightening your teeth. After your dentist creates the plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced. Each aligner, or tray, moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dental procedures can offer a huge boost in self-confidence, and they also may inspire you to practice better oral health habits.
In some cases, cosmetic procedures actually can enhance the long-term health of your teeth.
