Advances in dental technology and materials mean that cosmetic dental treatments are more affordable and today’s celebrity smile is no longer restricted to the rich and famous. If you’ve got a stained or crooked teeth, or any aesthetic dental concerns regarding your teeth and gums, a cosmetic dentist can provide you with an appropriate aesthetic solution. The best part is that with don’t have to resort to surgical procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
There are a variety of treatments that can enhance the attractiveness of your smile in just one or two dental appointments. Although seemingly straightforward and simple, they are no less effective. Let’s take a look at some of the speedier methods to achieve your dream smile.
Fixing chipped or gappy teeth
Dental bonding is a popular and easy method of concealing your dental flaws. By applying the tooth-coloured composite resin directly onto your tooth, the innovative material can easily fill in the cracks and recesses of your teeth. If you have short teeth that are not in proportion with your gums and smile line, dental bonding can precisely add length to your teeth. Using the highly malleable composite resin, the dentist is able to sculpt the teeth with exacting precision to achieve highly predictable results. The direct bonding method also reduces the teeth preparation time, by eliminating the need for moulds or temporaries.
Reshape your pearlies
A cosmetic dentist can reshape your teeth using a method known as tooth contouring. Want a perfect row of neatly contoured teeth? No problem. Tooth contouring is able to sculpt, shorten or lengthen your natural teeth to the exact size and shape, in proportion to the rest of your teeth. In as little as one appointment, the cosmetic dentist can help to shave millimeters off the edges of your teeth enamel, correcting minor imperfections so that your teeth line up perfectly and in proportion to each other. The dentist can also apply tooth colour laminates known as dental veneers to lengthen your teeth. This virtually pain-free procedure can really rejuvenate the look of your teeth.
Brighten your smile
Trends may come and trends may go but a healthy bright smile will never go out of fashion. The good news is that modern teeth whitening methods are more effective and results-oriented than ever. New and improved whitening systems like Philips Zoom can deliver up to 8 shades brighter in a single one-hour session at the dentist. The in-chair whitening system uses a professionally administered dose of highly concentrated whitening agent to remove stains on the enamel that everyday brushing fail to. Depending on the individual case, this treatment remains one of the easiest methods to achieve the appearance of having healthy and beautiful teeth.
