Aesthetic Dentistry, also known as Cosmetic Dentistry, involves various dental treatments to give you that beautiful natural smile.
Aesthetic Dentistry is done by cosmetic dentists and includes:
Tooth Bleaching: is a direction many people take to whitened teeth that have been discolored due to aging, medication or stained by beverages and foods.
Porcelain Veneers: also called indirect veneers, are thin wafers of porcelain pieces place over the front teeth to change color, shape and size of the teeth, Veneers are good option in resolving irregularities on front teeth, closed gaps and can straighten mildly crocked teeth. Porcelain veneers provide good esthetics similar to natural teeth.
Composite Resin Fillings: are tooth- colored filings. Many individuals now reface existing amalgam filling with composite resin fillings for better esthetics.
Made of a plastic dental resin, composite resin has no known health risks relative to the controversial silver mercury fillings. These tooth-colored dental fillings are strong, durable and give good natural esthetics results.
Inlay and Onlays: are similar to dental fillings used to fill-in cavities or damaged teeth. But unlike fillings, inlays and onlays are made from porcelain or gold strength for larger cavities. Porcelain inlays and onlaysmimic the teeth’s translucency and color, making them attractive choice for patients.
Composite Veneers: also called direct veneers. Unlike porcelain veneers whereby wafer porcelain pieces are made in the labs, dental bonding is a procedure of applying tooth-colored resin material and hardened with a special light on the surface of front teeth in improving one’s smile.
Lumineers: are ultra-thin all porcelain wafer pieces placed over the front teeth to change color shape of the teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, lumineers requires no shots and minimal or in certain cases no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. Lumineers are thus sometimes known as safe and painless porcelain veneers.
