Procedures You May Consider
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching are the same thing. It can be used to brighten your natural teeth, making them look more radiant and white. This procedure can be done in the dental office or at home, depending on your provider. Consider what you have in your mouth before your try bleaching, as crowns, veneers, and other artificial teeth will not whiten as natural teeth will.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin shells made of clay, that can be used to cover a myriad of dental issues. They are made custom-fit to your mouth and cemented to the front edge of a tooth. A veneer can be used to treat cosmetic conditions like slightly crooked teeth, discolored teeth, or even used to lessen the space appearing between two teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Crowns are custom-made to fit over your tooth after it has been shaved down a small amount. Crowns fit over the entire tooth, and are usually made out of acrylic or porcelain. Crowns can be used to treat teeth that are chipped or broken. If you have had dental work, like a root canal, a crown may be recommended to strengthen a weakened tooth.
Cosmetic Teeth Shaping
We can reshape a problematic tooth tooth by removing some of the enamel through filing. If you have a tooth that sits a little higher than the others or is oddly shaped this is an easy fix.
