Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care focused on improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments usually aren’t necessary to prevent cavities or gum disease, but they can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance, boosting your confidence and self-esteem. If you’re missing teeth or you have discolored or decaying teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help.
Are there different types of cosmetic dentistry?
At Safari Dental, the team offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Veneers are custom-crafted shells of porcelain or composite resin that your dentist bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. Veneers improve the appearance, shape, and color of your teeth, restoring balance to your smile. Some people get one or two veneers, but to achieve the best possible results, the team at Safari Dental recommends six or eight.
If you have a cracked, chipped, or decaying tooth, your Safari Dental provider might recommend a dental crown. A crown is a tooth-shaped covering that envelopes the entire portion of a tooth that sits above the gumline. A crown improves your tooth’s appearance and makes it easier to bite and chew.
If you’re missing one, several, or all of your permanent teeth and you don’t want to wear dentures, consider dental implants. Dental implants are small metal posts that your Safari Dental provider surgically places into small incisions in your gumline. Dental implants are versatile and can support crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures.
If you have crooked and overcrowded teeth or misaligned jaws, orthodontic treatment can help. At Safari Dental, the team offers several orthodontic treatments, including traditional metal braces and custom aligners by Invisalign®. The type of orthodontics that’s right for you depends on the condition of your teeth and your goals for treatment.
Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?
Only a qualified dentist, like those at Safari Dental, can determine if you’re a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. However, if you regularly find yourself covering up your mouth whenever you speak, smile, or laugh, you probably qualify.
Cosmetic dentistry techniques are safe, well-tolerated, and can help you feel your best. If you aren’t proud of your smile, consider cosmetic dentistry today.
