Did you know that some cosmetic dentistry treatment services can save smiles? Despite the occurrence that all cosmetic dentistry can improve the look of your smiles, some are equipped with the added bonus of protecting your teeth too. There are treatments available to improve your smile simply by replacing teeth that have been lost over the years, while many others are simply designed to restore broken or damaged teeth.
Some of the most wonderful forms of cosmetic dentistry for fixing tooth abnormalities include teeth whiteners, dental crowns, dental veneers, and dental bonding treatments. Dental crowns are little shells placed completely over teeth for added protection and increased functionality for damaged teeth, whereas dental veneers are small shells placed on the fronts of teeth only for a small amount of protection and a customizable look that can drastically improve your smile’s aesthetics. Dental bonding is used to cement material directly to a tooth for protection and increased functionality without covering the entire tooth.
Some of the most wonderful forms of cosmetic dentistry for replacing missing teeth include dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures. Dental bridges are attached to nearby or neighboring teeth while filling in gaps left behind by missing teeth, whereas dental implants are linked and installed in the jawbone. Dentures are attached using a type of bonding substance to hold the dentures to the gums for a removable hold so that they can be cleaned and removed on a nightly basis.
