If you are dissatisfied with your smile, or if you are having trouble chewing food, it may be time to schedule an evaluative exam with a cosmetic dentist. In addition to providing general dentistry services like exams, fillings, and extractions, a cosmetic dentist offers treatments that can make your teeth look their best and function as they should. Here are some of the services that can help you get the teeth you need and the smile you want.

Crowns

If you have teeth that are broken or chipped, a crown might be the answer to your problem. A cosmetic dental exam will evaluate the problem to see if your teeth will support the addition of a crown. This procedure shaves off the top part of the tooth but retains the root. The top missing part is replaced by a synthetic structure that looks and acts like a real tooth.

Implants

When people lose an adult tooth, their ability to chew food can be impaired. In addition, one or more missing teeth can change the way they look overall and especially impact their smile. Someone with a smile that reveals missing teeth may feel self-conscious and be uncomfortable about smiling or talking much with others. Fortunately, a dental impact can secure a metal stud in the jaw bone and then attach a replacement tooth to the stud in a series of related procedures to fill the gap left by the original missing tooth. Implants look real and enable you to speak, chew, and look as you did before, or better.

Whitening

White teeth help people to look healthier and more youthful. Stains left by foods, tobacco, or poor hygiene can make teeth look unattractive. Professional teeth whitening can be done by the cosmetic dentist or at home with products recommended by the dental office. Results are usually noticeable with the first treatment. Teeth can be kept white with repeat treatments periodically.

Dental Bridges

Patients with several missing teeth may need a dental bridge. This is an oral structure and connects between two stable adult teeth to provide stability and the appearance of having all or most teeth. Bridges can be permanent or removable depending on the condition of the patient’s mouth. Additionally, here is more information on what you need to know about full mouth restorations.

If you have concerns about the appearance of the function of your teeth, contact a cosmetic dentist for an evaluation. You can ask about procedures, timelines, and costs to make informed decisions about recommended treatment.
