Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that pivots on improving the overall appearance of patients’ teeth and gums and enhancing their smiles. Common examples of cosmetic dentistry include veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, and dental implants, to name a few. These procedures either hide or remove imperfections in the teeth or improve the aesthetics of otherwise normal teeth. Anyone with reasonably healthy teeth and gums can qualify for cosmetic dentistry. Schedule a consultation with a Cary dentist at Myers + Co. Family Dentistry.
For an easy, effective, and convenient way to brighten your smile and boost your confidence, there's no better solution than at-home teeth whitening. Over the course of a few weeks, you can lighten your grin by multiple shades, all from the comfort of your own home! At-home teeth whitening is also one of the most cost-effective cosmetic dental treatments, making it a great way to transform your smile without breaking the bank.
If you feel insecure about your smile for reasons like chips, gaps, discoloration, veneers can fix that and more. Veneers totally transform your smile to hide any cosmetic imperfections. They are expertly crafted from porcelain, a thin yet durable material, to attach to the front of your teeth. This gives you a natural, beautiful smile that you will feel confident in. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of veneers, contact us and we will be happy to address any of your concerns.
Have you been dreaming of a straighter smile, but don't want to deal with the uncomfortable, unsightly metal brackets and wires? Invisalign clear aligner therapy may just be the solution for you! Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn, and are removable so you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks, without restrictions. Over the course of your treatment, you'll receive new aligners every few weeks that will gradually shift your teeth into their proper alignment. Before you know it, you'll have the beautiful smile you deserve.
A cosmetic dental appointment, like any other dental appointment, first starts with a consultation. This consultation is arguably the most important part of the appointment because it lets you establish your cosmetic goals and helps the dentist understand better understand your needs. The dentist might also ask you questions about your dental and medical history, including what procedures you’ve undergone before, whether you have underlying medical conditions, and what medication you’re currently on.
What follows is a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums, which typically includes X-rays, TMJ tests, and taking your bite impressions. Once the test concludes, your dentist will break down your treatment options based on the examination. They’ll explain what each option entails, including its pros and cons. You’ll go over these options and pick the best one for your needs.
Once you pick a suitable option, the dentist will create a comprehensive treatment plan. The treatment plan will outline the number and dates of dental appointments. They’ll also tell you how long each appointment takes and how to prepare for them, together with an estimate of the treatment cost. Finally, the dentist will ask you whether you have any questions or concerns before sending you home. Keep up with your treatment plan for the success of your cosmetic dental procedure.
Patients with proper overall health and disease-free teeth and gums are suitable candidates for cosmetic dental procedures. However, cosmetic dentistry is especially ideal for people with stained and discolored teeth, who can whiten their teeth using in-house or take-home teeth whitening techniques to remove the discoloration.
You’re also a great candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you have cracked or chipped teeth. The dentist will determine what cosmetic treatment option is best for you, depending on the severity of cracks and fractures. Common cosmetic treatments for cracks and chips include dental bonding, veneers, and cracks. Dental bonding is ideal for mild to moderate disfigurements, while veneers and crowns hide and repair severely damaged teeth.
These treatments are also highly effective at reversing or hiding damage from severe dental decay. Patients with crowded teeth and other types of malocclusions can also benefit immensely from cosmetic treatments. Braces, clear aligners, and retainers align misaligned teeth for a perfect set of straight teeth. Braces work sufficiently, but some patients might find them visually intrusive and bulky. In that case, patients can settle for clear aligners like Invisalign, which are not only discrete but also light to wear.
