2 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Worth Considering

There are a number of cosmetic procedures that can be used to fix smile problems. From veneers to dental bridges, implants and inlays, your dentist will present you with lots of options that can give you a complete smile makeover. Below are two more aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry procedures that you may want to consider to get the perfect smile.

 

1. Dental contouring

Dental contouring is one of those cosmetic procedures with a really high rate of success. It’s best for individuals having crooked or long teeth that need reshaping. It’s also ideal if you have chipped teeth that need to be fixed to restore your confidence. Contouring is done using a special diamond-impregnated drill. The teeth are then sanded and polished to correct the flaws and improve their overall look.

 

When to consider dental contouring

Your teeth undergo natural movements that cause them to shift and drift overtime. When this happens, they wear out and possibly chip. Dental contouring can help to restore the teeth’s natural look by realigning the affected teeth. In fact, one of the main benefits of contouring is that it helps to improve the teeth’s form and function and it’s not just for aesthetic purposes.

 

2. Teeth whitening

Bleach substances can be used to restore the teeth’s white and bright look. There are different forms of teeth whitening procedures. Your dentist may recommend a whitening gel that you can use at home or perform the procedure at the dental office. It’s normal for teeth to darken overtime due to lifestyle choices such as consuming foods and drinks that stain teeth or smoking. Whitening helps to restore the teeth into a more natural looking and youthful appearance.

Should you consider teeth whitening?

 

There are a number of cosmetic procedures that can be used to fix smile problems. From veneers to dental bridges, implants and inlays, your dentist will present you with lots of options that can give you a complete smile makeover. Below are two more aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry procedures that you may want to consider to get the perfect smile.

 

Extrinsic versus intrinsic teeth whitening

 

Teeth whitening procedures are divided into two broad categories: Intrinsic and extrinsic whitening. In extrinsic whitening, the goal is to get rid of any stains or color on the outside of the tooth. The teeth can only become as white as your natural tooth color. Over time, your dentist may recommend using toothpastes, mouth rinses or go for professional dental cleaning in order to restore the teeth’s natural color. With extrinsic whitening, you cannot achieve a color that’s whiter than the inherent color of your teeth.

 

On the other hand, intrinsic whitening involves bleaching the inner parts of the teeth to try and dissolve the pigments that are responsible for the discoloration of teeth. Intrinsic whitening procedures can be done using custom trays which are designed by dentists, over the counter products as well as dental strips. Powerful lights and lasers can also be used in intrinsic whitening of teeth. The processes vary in terms of the time they will take as well as the level of concentration required. They can all bleach your teeth beyond their natural color if you feel like your teeth are still too dark after professional cleaning.

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 :)
