What Are Some Cosmetic Treatments?
It is one of the most modest and least expensive ways to improve your smile. The teeth can be bleached with our whitening products at our office, or you can get customized trays and gels to have your whitening done at home. The effects of the whitening are instant and can make your teeth several shades lighter and whiter.
Dental veneers are cosmetic appliances that help cover cracked, broken, or stained teeth. The procedure is painless and cost-effective. It involves the removal of about 0.5mm of enamel from the tooth's surface. Then thin, custom-made tooth-colored shells called the veneers are cemented with strong glue to the surface of the teeth. The veneers are generally used for the front teeth and are matched to the adjacent teeth's color, shape, and size.
Dental bondings can help fix decayed, chipped, or misshapen teeth and is an excellent cosmetic alternative to dental fillings. In dental bonding, a resin that is tooth-colored and putty-like is applied to the tooth's surface and hardened with laser light to bond the tooth's surface.
Crowns help to protect a weakened tooth from breakage or are used to hide misshapen or severely discolored teeth. The crowns are usually fabricated from metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic, making them strong and durable.
White fillings are an improvement on the unappealing metal amalgam fillings. Instead of metal, these fillings are fabricated from a composite material that imitates the look of natural teeth, enhancing your smile and restoring the health of a tooth that is chipped, decayed, or cracked.
