If you have sustained damage to your teeth, brushing and flossing will not be enough to make your smile operate at its best. Rather, opt in for a cosmetic dentistry treatment to improve the look of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can be used for a wide assortment of services, including replacing teeth that may have been lost, or simply fixing or concealing irregular or damaged teeth.
Some of the most frequent tooth replacement services available are dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges. Dental implants are artificial treatments that are directly installed to your jawbone for a permanent hold that can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, not everybody can have dental implants if their jawbones are too weak and not strong enough to hold them. Another choice is dentures.
If you are looking for a more permanent hold than dentures but lack the strength for dental implants, dental bridges can be used. Bridges are inserted into your gaps caused by missing teeth and linked to neighboring teeth or implants for a permanent hold.
Another type of cosmetic replacement is dentures. Dentures can be detached for easy nightly cleaning. They can also be crafted for just a few teeth, which are called partial dentures, or can be used to replace entire rows, which are called complete dentures.
If you are simply looking for a tooth restoration procedure, there are plenty of options.
Most damage or stains can be covered up or concealed with a bonding treatment such as crowns, veneers, or dental bonding. Dental crowns are caps placed over the visible portion of teeth for protection and beauty. Dental veneers are attached directly to the fronts of teeth for an aesthetic look that can turn a bad tooth into a thing of beauty. Dental bonding can also be used to bind material directly to teeth for cosmetic enhancements. For a whiter smile, teeth whitening treatments exist that can be applied in only a few shorts minutes for a beautiful improvement in your teeth’s color.
