Your smile is one of your most noticeable features. And if you have chips, cracks, discoloration or other cosmetic features you don’t love, it can be challenging to feel confident. If your confidence is low, you might not put your best foot forward or make the impression you want. Cosmetic dentistry is the answer.
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental medicine that treats and improves cosmetic features. In addition to increasing your confidence and repairing your smile, cosmetic dentistry can improve oral health. For example, many cosmetic dentistry procedures repair cosmetic damage like chipped or stained teeth. Once a chipped tooth is repaired, your tooth is less likely to chip further and decay.
Below, the Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry experts explore four cosmetic services you won’t want to miss – and one that all the celebrities love.
5 Beautiful Cosmetic Dentistry Services You Don’t Want to Miss
Dental bonding is a simple, pain-free process to restore chips or gaps between teeth. In this in-office procedure, your dentist will color-match a composite resin to your unique smile color. Then, they will apply a liquid bonding agent to your tooth and shape the resin to fit the tooth. Finally, they will set the resin with a special light that hardens the material. Dental bonding is ideal for chipped teeth, gaps or misshapen teeth.
Many adults want straighter teeth but don’t want to deal with metal braces. Metal braces can be painful and bulky and sometimes make people feel unprofessional. Fortunately, Invisalign is an easy solution to teeth straightening. With Invisalign, you don’t need to see an orthodontist and have painful metal wires installed. Invisalign is a teeth straightening process that uses clear trays, called aligners, to shift your teeth gradually. Because the trays are clear and easy to clean, they are practically invisible.
If you are missing some teeth, partial dentures are a great way to fill in the gaps subtly. Partial dentures come in a variety of forms, including removable and fixed. With partial dentures, your Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry team will spend 6 to 8 weeks preparing your smile and developing the denture. We match the gum so that your new teeth are practically invisible!
Everyone wants a whiter smile – and for good reason! Our teeth become discolored from the foods and drinks we enjoy. Coffee, soda, wine, tea and other acidic, dark beverages are notorious for discoloring our teeth. A yellow or discolored smile can create the wrong impression, but at-home whitening products are often harsh and damaging. In fact, over-the-counter tooth whitening products can cause extreme pain and sensitivity. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening at Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry is regulated and overseen by dental experts to ensure your smile is beautiful and bright – without extreme sensitivity or pain.
A celebrity favorite: Porcelain veneers
If your smile has a lot of minor imperfections and it feels daunting to repair them all, porcelain veneers are a great way to get a beautiful, bright smile quickly. Porcelain veneers are popular with celebrities, including Tom Cruise, Miley Cyrus and Zac Efron. Veneers are thin, durable shells placed permanently over your existing teeth. Because they are porcelain, they look like natural teeth but are extremely strong, making them less likely to chip or damage further. Porcelain veneers are great for:
- Covering spaces or gaps between the teeth
- Protecting broken or chipped teeth
- Replacing stained or discolored teeth with brighter, whiter teeth
- Reshaping misshapen teeth
