Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures To Improve Your Smile

Improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry

It’s common knowledge that smiling everyday leads to a better and happier lifestyle. No one should be sentenced to a gloomy life because they lack confidence in their smile. But feeling insecure about your smile is nothing abnormal. Perhaps it’s time you considered a cosmetic dental procedure that will improve your smile and boost your self-confidence.

Cosmetic dentists advise patients to undergo different procedures depending on their situation. We will take a look at the common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of teeth.


Dental veneers

If you are not content with the color or shape of your teeth, veneers can be a suitable addition to improve your smile. Veneers are often used if you have spaces in between your teeth, chipped teeth, permanently stained or poorly shaped teeth. Veneers are usually designed to fit the exact shape of your teeth. The dentist will take an impression of the tooth and use it to create a veneer that will be inserted in your mouth. Veneers can be made from plastic or porcelain and are secured in the mouth using dental cement. This dental procedure can be done in just two visits because the dentist has to make the porcelain veneers that match the shape of your tooth in the lab. They are more long lasting and look more natural compared to other cosmetic dental procedures like bonding.

Enamel shaping and contouring

There are cases where the dental enamel needs some work in order to enhance a person’s smile. This process can be done together with dental bonding. The procedure is done to adjust the shape or position of teeth. It works best for patients who have crooked, irregular, chipped or overlapping teeth. Your Barrie dentist may also recommend contouring and shaping of the enamel if you have bite problems. However, your teeth need to be healthy with no decays or gum infection for you to qualify for this cosmetic procedure. You also need to have enough bone between your teeth in order for the shaping and contouring procedure to be done.


Dental bonding

Bonding materials can be used to fill excess space in between your teeth, chipped, cracked or broken teeth. It’s usually risky to have gaps or spaces in your teeth because the root of the tooth may be exposed to cavities and infections. Bonding is also recommended for people who have stained teeth. This cosmetic dental procedure can be conducted in a single visit and can last for many years. The only major drawback of dental bonding is that the bonding materials can be discolored or chip over the years.

There are many other ways to improve the look of your smile. A cosmetic dentist is likely to assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the most suitable approach. Make sure you discuss your lifestyle with the dentist so that the procedure selected will perfectly suit your needs. With this, you’ll only be a step away from getting the bright and healthy smile you’ve always admired.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
