With today’s advancements in dental technology, missing teeth, tooth decay, and uneven teeth are all cosmetic dental problems that are easier to repair. All you have to do is find a reputable cosmetic dentist in your area. After your initial meeting, a diagnosis will be made, and you and your dental practitioner will discuss the best option for your specific oral needs. This makes sure the specific procedure is safe for you to undergo and for the dentist to perform. As a reference, listed below are some of the most prevalent cosmetic dentistry procedures used in this field:

1.) Tooth-colored fillings: Amalgam fillings are the usual composite materials used in filling damaged teeth. Having the same color filling as your teeth, like white, will be something that will really bring positive attention back to the beautiful set of teeth you have.

2.) Dental crowns: This procedure is used rather than a simple filling. It is a cap made from the original tooth that is placed over the recovering tooth after cleaning. 

3.) Porcelain inlays/Onlays:  Porcelain inlays or onlays are a more effective alternative to fillings and crowns as they require less tooth reduction. It is mostly used to fill-in and repair cracked teeth.

4.) Dental bridges: Missing teeth can also be fixed by receiving a dental bridge procedure. This is the method where a prosthetic tooth is placed in the area of a missing tooth. It uses two crowns for stability that are placed on the neighboring teeth.

5.) Dental bonding: Decaying of a tooth can be very annoying, so having it restored with a dental bonding procedure rather than losing it in an extraction procedure will be better. During this process, a composite material will fill the damaged tooth and then polished to reveal a healthy-looking set of teeth.

Of course, these are just a few of the treatments offered in this field of dentistry. Follow this link for more cosmetic dentistry solutions that we offer at our offices.
