Cosmetic dentistry can provide restorative functions as well esthetic. For instance, dental fillings is a procedure used in restoring decayed teeth. However, cosmetic dentistry provides dental fillings using porcelain or composite materials that match the color of your teeth helping to maintain the natural appearance of your teeth and smile.

Gold amalgam and other materials used in the past, left visible dark spots on the teeth and could potentially negatively impact the appearance of your smile. It is for this reason that many patients choose to have their older fillings replaced with newer materials which are designed to resemble tooth coloration to help to restore oral appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry procedures by Dr. Ammar TaimishAdvancements in technology, such as porcelain fillings, have also allowed for the use of lasers in cosmetic dentistry. These lasers may be used to perform procedures such as gum contouring or gingivectomy in office and without the need for referrals to specialists. This allows for procedures such as smile makeovers to be done in a comfortable, convenient manner for patients while simultaneously reducing recovery time.

Additional technology has also allowed dentists today to use more conservative cosmetic dentistry techniques to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible depending on each case.

Composite Bonding: This procedure is used to restore chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth as well as repairing the appearance of tooth structure.

Teeth Whitening: This treatment is commonly recommended for teeth that have been stained by smoking, food, drink or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth in these cases can be used to enhance the appearance of your smile.

Dental Veneers: Porcelain or composite laminates that are bonded to the surface of the tooth in order to repair chips/cracks, worn appearance, gaps or severe tooth discoloration in the event that whitening is not successful.

Dental Implants: Artificial tooth replacements used to compensate for tooth loss with prosthetic dentistry. Dental Implants will not only enhance your smile, they will also give you a more youthful looking appearance as the absence of teeth can cause the face to collapse making a patient appear older.

Smile Makeover: A comprehensive assessment of your smile esthetics will allow dentists to best improve your oral appearance.
