Cosmetic dentistry often includes the use of veneers or tooth bonding material to restore the appearance and functionality of a patient’s smile. If you have crooked, chipped, or stained teeth, you may feel like your smile could use a makeover. Fortunately, your cosmetic dentist can help. A composite tooth resin, or bonding, can fill in chipped teeth and create a better looking smile. Porcelain veneers can cover imperfections to create a glowing smile that makes teeth look straight and natural. Take a look at the information below to learn which treatment may be right for you.
Composite resin is a safe alternative to the amalgam fillings that were used in the past. When you have decayed material removed from a tooth, the resultant void requires filling. Composite resin can be bonded to the tooth to easily and safely restore it. When the composite material hardens, your tooth will look and feel natural. This same material can also be used to fill in chipped teeth. The color can be matched to the color of your existing teeth. Tooth bonding may be an excellent choice for you if you only have one or two minor imperfections. Be careful not to drink too much coffee or soda after this restorative dentistry procedure, as doing so may stain the bonding material over time.
Repairing aesthetically unpleasant teeth can make you feel like a new person. Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for meeting this goal. This cosmetic procedure is performed by placing a thin shell of porcelain over the front of a tooth or set of teeth. Porcelain veneers can last for many years and do not become stained with food or drinks. Veneers are excellent options if you have several chipped or cracked teeth, staining, or gaps between your teeth. They are also a wonderful way to correct minor orthodontic issues without the use of braces.
