Cosmetic dentistry helps to improve your smile by using restorative procedures to brighten your teeth or alter your jaw line in order to change your smile and overall appearance. Some Modesto Dental offices can do the cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening but you may need to go to a specialist such as an oral surgeon for in-depth procedures.
If you have older fillings made from amalgam (silver) or gold, cosmetic dentistry can help to solve your filling problems by replacing them with white or composite fillings. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to try and save as much of your tooth as possible.
Laser treatments are commonly used with cosmetic dentistry to perform procedures such as removing decay and yellowing on the teeth. Whitening the teeth is one of the most common dental procedures being used right now.
When you visit a Modesto Dentist office, ask about some of the dental procedures that they can perform, here are a few to ask about:
- Inlays / Onlays – If your tooth has structural damage or decay you need to ask about inlays / onlays that can replace the filling. They will be bonded to your teeth, which provides you with a whiter onlay to make your smile brighter and much whiter.
- Teeth whitening – Many people are looking for ways to make their smiles brighter. Teeth whitening is the perfect way to brighten your smile in a hurry. If you drink dark sodas, coffee, and other things they will stain your teeth. Bleaching your teeth is a great way to quickly improve your smile.
- Veneers – Chips and cracks on the surface of a tooth can make it appear darker. Many people that have had braces will notice that their tooth does not look the way they want it to after the braces are removed. Dental veneers will cover the front side of the tooth to give it a nicer appearance.
