14 Mar The Lens of Cosmetic Dentistry
You may have heard the term “cosmetic dentistry”. Here at Bull City Dental, we offer services in cosmetic dentistry. But what does that really mean?
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental procedure that changes, shifts or replaces teeth to improve its overall appearance.
What services fall under the branch of Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you’ve been searching through websites looking for a dentist, you may have noticed that many dental procedures can qualify as Cosmetic Dentistry, and each dentist offers something slightly different. Though some of these procedures are often listed under other categories of dentistry, here is a comprehensive description of what those services under a cosmetic dental lens:
- Orthodontics: Braces and other orthodontic devices shift your teeth and jaw over a period of time. Yes, straight teeth and a proper jaw placement are major factors toward long-term dental health, but patients often seek orthodontics simply for a beautiful bite. Dr. Audrey Kemp is trained to fit you or your child with Invisalign, a special type of clear, discrete braces.
- Restoration: If your teeth are discolored, decayed or chipped, composite bonding can fix that. Here materials like resin or plastic are chemically bonded to your teeth. It’s a quick, noninvasive procedure that improves the look of your smile. Veneers or crowns can also restore your smile. Most modern dentists use porcelain veneers and crowns to match the look of your natural teeth. City Dental can restore your smile with veneers or dental bonding, and even give it an extra sparkle with chairside teeth bleaching
- Tooth Replacement: Dental implants, bridges and even dentures fit into this category. They replace any of your lost teeth, which in turn improves the overall appeal of your smile.
