If your teeth are stains, worn, chipped, or broken then you are a candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry Chestnut Hill.
Cosmetic dentistry works to improve the appearance of your smile using dental procedures that correct the look and function of your teeth.
There are different types of services offered by cosmetic dentists.
Teeth whitening is by far the most popular and simplest procedure. It is also one of the least expensive ways to improve your smile. Teeth can be brightened several shades by using a special dental bleach in the dental office. There are some at-home bleaching and tooth whitening products that can be used and which are relatively inexpensive.
Dental veneers are a covering for the front of the tooth. Veneers are permanently placed, thin shells that are used to change the color and shape of a tooth. Many celebrities have veneers, and no one notices.
Caps or dental crowns fit over a tooth that has been damaged by decay or breakage. The crown will keep a weak tooth from breaking and can hold a cracked tooth together. They can be used to cover a tooth that is oddly shaped.
Dental implants are replacement teeth anchored securely to the bone with a small metal rod. Unlike dentures, dental implants cannot be removed.
If a tooth is missing the dentist may request a bridge to fill in the gap. A bridge is made of two crowns on either end, and a false tooth is nestled between them.
Procedures have become quicker and more effective, and some are even pain-free. These improvements mean that getting that perfect smile is relatively painless.
