Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is about making positive changes to your smile. If your teeth are not as white as you would like, then our dentist at Shore Drive Dental, can give you a professional whitening treatment that can brighten your smile by several shades. If you have missing teeth, then our dentist might recommend dental implants or bridges for teeth replacements. If there are gaps between teeth, our cosmetic dentist might suggest orthodontic procedures like braces or Invisalign aligners. 

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can help you correct several different cosmetic flaws. If your teeth are yellowed or stained, the porcelain shells that cover them can brighten your smile. Teeth that are chipped, cracked, irregularly shaped, or misaligned can be covered by porcelain. Once they’re in place, you can brush and floss your teeth just as you would with your natural teeth.

Dental Bonding

Your dentist may suggest dental bonding when a tooth or teeth have minor cosmetic damage. This treatment involves the application of tooth-colored resin material to the tooth’s surface. The material is designed to look and function like natural tooth enamel. Once the material is bonded to the tooth, it corrects the flaw and protects it from further damage.

Tooth Contouring

If you have one or more teeth that are oddly shaped, we can use a tooth contouring procedure to reshape them and give you a smile that is more even and attractive. 

The Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry

Easier to Smile

With cosmetic improvement, you can look forward to showing off your pearly whites every time you laugh or smile. The procedures can correct common problems with your teeth, such as tooth discoloration and misalignment in your smile. After completing your process, you’ll feel more confident smiling because you know that your teeth look their best.

Maintain Dental Health

Many cosmetic dental procedures maintain the health of your mouth. For example, a process like porcelain veneers can improve your teeth' alignment and protect your teeth' surface from damage. During a bonding session, your dentist will apply resin to the surface of teeth to repair minor chips and cracks and improve the appearance of misshapen enamel.

Restore Your Smile’s Youthful Appearance

As you age, your face changes shape, and your teeth also shift position. A youthful appearance can be maintained through cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening, for example, can restore the brightness of your smile and make you look younger. You can also replace missing teeth with dental implants, which act like natural teeth and keep the jawbone strong and healthy.
