Not too long ago, cosmetic dentistry was considered a luxury accessible only to movie stars, models, and celebrities. However, advances and improvements in materials and techniques make cosmetic dental treatments more affordable and attainable than ever before.
Improvements in Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Since materials have improved, we have many opportunities to address the aesthetics of your smile. Dental crowns can now be made of porcelain or ceramic because both materials mimic the appearance of natural enamel. Crowns are no longer simply restorations for damaged teeth; they can also be used to change the aesthetics of a tooth completely.
Tooth-colored fillings are another valuable addition to the array of cosmetic dental treatments. The filling material is a composite of resin and plastic particles and can be shaded to match the color of your teeth. This natural appearance allows us to create seamless fillings, but we can also use the material for cosmetic dental bonding. This convenient, affordable treatment can be used to fix chips, cracks, or alter the shape of a tooth.
The purpose of professional teeth whitening hasn’t changed. But now there is a broad range of products to choose from to fit your budget and your busy lifestyle. In-office treatments are still a good choice, but there are now numerous professional take-home whitening products so you can take control of the process at your own pace.
Porcelain veneers have been around for decades, but materials and technology used to create them have improved significantly. Since veneers look so natural, you may only need one or two to see the transformation you desire!
