Improving Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you familiar with crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, dental implants, and veneers in Zebulon? If you’ve spent your last couple of weeks checking out cosmetic dental services, then it could only mean one thing – you want to change your smile and make your teeth look more attractive.  

Millions of Americans are willing to spend money on their smiles. Whether you have stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth, your cosmetic dentist, can change everything about them. The teeth you’ve once detested will now become your most valued asset. Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetic appeal of your overall smile. It combines science and art and can range from simple treatments to more complex ones.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Your Smile? 

Dental Implants 

Losing your teeth will affect your oral function, but it will also significantly dent your self-esteem. Numerous studies reveal that tooth loss can cause severe emotional distress to the point where it affects a person’s mental well-being. Luckily, your cosmetic dentist can restore everything to the way they were with dental implant surgery.   

Dental implants are simulated tooth roots made of screw-shaped biocompatible metal. These titanium metal posts are inserted surgically into your jawbone from where the dental crowns are attached to complete your smile. They offer a strong, secure, and stable foundation for removable or permanent artificial teeth.  

Out of all tooth replacement solutions, dental implant surgery has the longest duration since osseointegration, or the ability of your jawbone tissues to integrate with the dental implants, can take a while. It can even reach up to several months. Nevertheless, despite the long waiting time, dental implants are permanent and can last a lifetime.  

Gum Reshaping 

Do you know what a gummy smile looks like? It’s when an above average amount of your gums are visible above your teeth. If you don’t like the excessive display of gum tissues, you can opt for a gum reshaping procedure. In this procedure, excess bone and gum tissues are removed and shaped to show more teeth.  

Dental Fillings 

In a dental filling procedure, your cosmetic dentist will remove decayed parts of your tooth and then fill the cavity with a filling material to restore your tooth’s structure. It’s an affordable treatment that repairs broken, cracked, decayed, and worn-down teeth.  

Some materials used in dental fillings are porcelain (the most popular), gold, silver amalgam (which contains copper, zinc, tin, silver, and mercury), and composite resin fillings. Most people prefer composite fillings because they share the same color as your natural teeth.  

Teeth Whitening 

What do celebrities typically have in common? They all have blindingly perfectly white teeth! Is it possible to achieve a bright smile like theirs?  

The answer is yes. If you are looking for an affordable way to transform your smile, consider in-office teeth whitening, which is much more effective than at-home treatments. 

While you can always purchase over-the-counter gels, trays, and strips from your local supermarket or drug store, we don’t recommend it.  

These DIY teeth whitening kits do not contain enough whitening ingredients to effectively brighten your smile. Furthermore, if you don’t know how to use them correctly, these products could leak out and burn your sensitive gum tissues or cause permanent damage to your teeth.  

During an in-office teeth whitening, you can instantly see dramatic results in as little as 45 minutes. It’s worth mentioning that not all patients qualify for teeth whitening. To know if it’s the right treatment, we suggest you talk to your cosmetic dentist.  

Dental Bonding 

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that aims to improve your smile. Your cosmetic dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin over your teeth, followed by the use of a special light. It’s an economical option that helps repair cracked and chipped teeth. It can also alter your tooth’s shape and closes narrow tooth gaps. 

Orthodontics 

The shape and color of your teeth are not the only reasons you need cosmetic dental services. Did you know that teeth misalignment can also change how you look? Crooked or misaligned teeth can ruin a beautiful smile.  

Luckily, there are plenty of orthodontic devices that can help correct misaligned teeth. Two of the most popular treatments are braces and clear aligners. These devices apply pressure on your teeth to move them until they reach their desired positions.  

Veneers 

Veneers are thin shells that are either made from composite or porcelain. Before these shells are applied to your teeth, your cosmetic dentist will shave off some parts of your enamel to give room for the veneers. Dental veneers have the power to completely change your smile – color, shape, length, and size!

“I just left this dentist office and I am so impressed. I was able to complete all my paperwork online so I did not have to arrive early and I had only a short wait time once there. While there I learned of tools that I could use at home and even saw what my smile would look like with Invisalign. I walked away with a good experience and my treatment plan. Friendly staff, extremely clean and I felt thoroughly taken care of. Thank you Tryon Family Dentistry”
