Modern Cosmetic dentistry procedures are very popular right now because people all around the world are realizing that they can change the way they look and feel relatively easy with the help of a qualified cosmetic dentist. If you were born with unattractive teeth, if your teeth are suffering the effects of aging, or if stress and poor quality dental care has finally caught up with you, a cosmetic dentist can help turn back the clock with a variety of dental procedures.
We live in a culture that reserves youth and beauty, thanks to 21st century technology, artistry, techniques and materials, it is possible to restore people’s worn, aged teeth to more youthful physiological positions, rejuvenating the face by providing underlying support. This rejuvenation technique enables the cosmetic dentist to take years off patient’s faces by realigning the bite and restoring it so the muscles are in their optimal, relaxed positions. Such an incredible Makeover demonstrates the ability of the present-day cosmetic dentistry to complement and enhance patient’s facial features. Regardless of your smile’s current condition, an experienced cosmetic dentist can help you achieve the white healthy teeth of your dreams.
If you are looking to makeover your smile, one of the easiest places to start is “teeth whitening”, as a bright beaming smile gives the illusion of perfection.
By bleaching your teeth so that they are all one shade, people notice the white, even colour of your smile more than anything else, creating a picture-perfect look. Blemishes are more noticeable on a discoloured smile than a white smile because the eye is drawn to inconsistencies.
Your aesthetic dentist will begin by painting your teeth with a peroxide-based bleaching gel, shielding your gums with a rubber dam and covering your eyes with protective goggles. Next a Laser light is used to penetrate the gel deep inside the teeth. This is performed in a single visit and may give you that Hollywood smile without requiring coming back multiple times. If teeth whitening don’t do it for you, you may decide to get a brand new you with cosmetic veneers.
Porcelain veneers are another common procedure used to change the look of the teeth altogether. Tooth veneers are the most conservative state-of-the-art solution to change color, shape, alignment or contour in the anterior teeth making up your smile.
They are custom-designed thin shells of porcelain or ceramic bonded to a minimally prepared tooth surface creating the ideal aesthetics and function. People who have severely chipped or decaying teeth often benefit from the placement of veneers.
Even more stressful than a chipped tooth can be a missing tooth. When your tooth is knocked out or never grew in then you are left with a hole in your smile.
Anyone who has missing teeth or is about to lose whatever teeth remain, makes an excellent candidate for this one-day complete smile makeover, which condenses what used to require several surgeries, sometimes spread over the course of a year – into a single visit.
Through this new technique, dental implants are threaded into the jaw bone, based on the number of teeth that need to be replaced, and the amount of healthy bone available. Once the implants are suitably positioned, your dentist will screw a new set of teeth onto the implants, based on your colour, and cosmetic preferences. In the majority of the cases patient can return to work immediately. About eight weeks later, once the bone has fused to the implants, a new permanent set of teeth is made and connected to the dental implants as a final restoration.
Remarkably, dental implants can be used in large numbers and throughout the mouth often replacing the need for dentures or partial dentures. Dental Implants are giving people the confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. A person with implants regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth and smile appear natural and that their facial contours have been preserved.
In this day and age there is nothing wrong with a sound concern for looking good. Modern cosmetic dentistry procedures offer solutions to enhance your smile no matter how bad your teeth are. Unlike plastic surgery, Cosmetic Dentistry doesn't need to be a major operation. Imagine coming in for a single appointment or two and emerging with the smile you've always wanted...no pain, no strain and no time taken out of your busy life. The results are immediate and drastic.
