Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular forms of dentistry available and many people choose cosmetic dentistry as a solution to their dental issues. Discovering more about what cosmetic procedures are most popular can help you to narrow down your selection. What is cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile. Most cosmetic procedures are usually elective rather than essential, but some cases provide restorative benefits. Teeth whitening. Teeth whitening are one of the most affordable option for enhancing your smile, perfect for brightening the teeth without making a huge commitment. At The Smile Pros Dental, we now offer Zoom Teeth Whitening as a teeth whitening option that can be performed at home or in the dentist chair. One of the experienced team members will take an impression mould of your bite to create a tray for your teeth which you will use at home. The home treatment will take up to two weeks to achieve the results. You can also opt for the in-office treatment which will take two appointments with each session taking just over an hour. Composite/Enamel bonding. Enamel bonding is definitely an option for people who have deeply stained or chipped teeth. Composite bonding repairs decay, damage and discoloured teeth using material that resembles the colour of tooth enamel. The material, which is bonded to your teeth is generally the same material that your dentist uses for white fillings. Your dentist will take the mouldable material and sculpt into the perfect shape on your teeth before curing it with a high-intensity light. Bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic dental procedures available for patients with chipped, stained or worn-down edges. They do not last as long as porcelain veneers and are not as stain-resistant. However, they are reasonably strong and can be periodically refurbished by polishing. Dental veneers. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are made to fit over the surface of the teeth. The enamel is gently filled, and an impression of the teeth is taken. The impression is sent to the lab to create the custom veneers. Veneers are perfect for patients whose teeth have dark stains that don’t go away with bleaching as well as fractured and chipped front teeth. They create an enamel-like surface that can be polished to create a higher lustre and are resistant to stains and chipping. At The Smile Pros Dental, we manufacture your veneers within 48 hours. During the first appointment, the impression of your teeth is taken and the final shape is pre-planned and sent off to the lab. During the second appointment, the porcelain veneers are tested to ensure they are a good fit and once you are happy they will be bonded to the teeth. Inlays and Onlays. These are indirect fillings which are created in a dental lab and are used when a tooth is not strong enough to support a filling but have mild to moderate decay. An inlay covers the chewing surface of the tooth between the cusps of the tooth. An Onlay covers one or more fractured tooth cusps. Inlays and Onlays provide support to strengthen the teeth, restore their shape and prevent further decay. At The Smile Pros Dental, we offer different materials available for Inlays and Onlays including gold, composite and metal. Dental Implants. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth where the dentist inserts a titanium screw into the jaw at the site of the missing tooth to support the crown. Once the bone and supporting tissue fuse to the implant, they are secured permanently. At The Smile Pros Dental, we make use of state-of-the-art technology to create a detailed image of the tooth and supporting structure in order to ensure the precise planning and placement of the implant.
