Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help Your Smile
Most people have at least one thing they would like to change about their smile whether it is whiter teeth, chip repairs, or replacement teeth. Cosmetic dentistry includes several procedures that can give you a more beautiful smile. At Northwest Arkansas Family Dental, we offer our patients in the Fayetteville, AR area simple quick fixes to full smile makeovers so everyone can have a smile they love.
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You
- Discoloration – One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures done are in-office whitening treatments. In-office treatments generally work better than store-bought gels because they seep deep into the enamel to lift and remove stubborn stains. We use the Kor whitening treatment which gives you not only whiter teeth but actually protects them.
- Chips and cracks – If you have mild chips and cracks in your teeth it can make your smile look uneven and awkward. Composite bonding uses a tooth-colored resin to fill in chips, cracks, and small gaps to make your smile more cohesive. The resin can also be used to reshape disproportionate teeth and make them more consistent.
- Severe damage – Some discoloration, cracks, and chips can’t be fixed with whitening and composite bonding treatments, yet veneers can hide these issues. Veneers are made of a thin, porcelain shell that is attached to the tooth. They can hide almost any aesthetic issues and give your smile a completely different look. Crowns are similar to veneers, but are most often used for implants and broken teeth to make them more functional as well.
- Missing teeth – It may seem like once you lose one of your adult teeth you are out of options, but dental implants can help restore your smile and oral health. An implant is placed directly into the bone to stop bone loss and add stability to the crown. Once the crown is attached, the implant will look, feel, and act like a natural tooth.
