Utilizing Cosmetic Dentistry to Achieve a More Beautiful Smile!

Jun 16, 2019

You might be afraid of smiling due to corked, stained teeth. With cosmetic dentistry, you have a variety of options to enhance the appearance of your smile. Prime Dental (Plano) provides cosmetic dentistry procedures aimed at improving the facial aesthetics and appearance of dental structures.

Various kinds of cosmetic dental procedures offered by the dentists-

  • Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that are custom made to cover the problem areas of the smile. These restorations are extremely thin and used to address the teeth near the front of the mouth that are permanently stained, broken or unevenly spaced.

It is a fast and effective way of addressing the specific issues which are impacting the smile.

  • Lumineers

Lumineers are similar to porcelain veneers but do not require any preparation of the natural tooth. They can be removed later and patients can address the imperfection in another way instead.

In traditional porcelain veneers, enamel needs to be removed from the surface of the tooth that cannot be replaced.

  • Porcelain fillings

If you have cavities, it needs to be addressed with aesthetic fillings. Porcelain fillings are a more attractive method of restoring the tooth than the use of metal or amalgam fillings.

  • Dental bonding

Repair the smile with the use of dental bonding. This material is shaped onto the tooth and hardened with a special light. It is used in the same way as a porcelain veneer or a filling and gives aesthetic improvements.

  • Laser treatments

Lasers are used in medicine to provide treatments and also used in dentistry. The laser treatments are provided for gum recontouring that help patients improve an uneven gum line or a “gummy smile”.

  • Teeth whitening

Brightening the smile is one of the fastest ways to improve the appearance. Certain lifestyle and dietary habits such as smoking, chewing tobacco, etc. can cause stains and discoloration of the teeth.

Teeth whitening involve a wide range of dental procedures and techniques. It helps in getting rid of stains and discoloration of the teeth and offers a healthy white smile.
