When Is Cosmetic Dentistry Necessary?
Cosmetic dentistry is necessary when someone has undergone a type of trauma that has damaged their teeth in a way that does not allow them to perform everyday habits like talking and eating without experiencing some type of discomfort or pain. Cosmetic dentistry is also necessary for those who feel that if they have a certain cosmetic procedure performed, it would improve their overall quality of life.
Types of cosmetic procedures for those in need
The cosmetic procedures available today have been specifically designed to alter the size, shape and color of teeth. The following is a list of common cosmetic procedures that are performed to help those who are in need of one or more cosmetic procedures in order to improve their overall oral health.
Dental bonding requires the use of a special tooth-colored composite material that can fix a variety of tooth problems, including teeth that have been chipped, cracked or broken. Once the material has been placed on a tooth and shaped into its proper position, a special process will be used to harden the material, allowing it to become a part of the tooth.
A dental veneer is also called a porcelain veneer because it is created by layering super-thin shells of porcelain on top of each other in order to create a cosmetic covering for teeth that are unsightly or damaged. Veneers are often used in the front of the mouth, as they offer a natural look.
Teeth whitening services are necessary when someone’s smile is not as white and bright as it can be. It is important for those in need of teeth whitening services to understand that it will only whiten extrinsic stains, not intrinsic stains. When someone has intrinsic stains on their teeth, they will need to choose bonding or veneers to brighten their smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are also called composite fillings because the material used is very strong and blends in with the teeth. This type of filling is often necessary when someone has cracked, chipped, gapped, stained or sensitive teeth or teeth that are in decay.
Dental crowns are used for teeth in jeopardy of being lost because teeth are meant to last our entire lifetime. If nothing is done and the tooth is lost, then a tooth replacement option will need to be chosen.
