5 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Consider

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry focusing on improving the appearance of your dental structure. It involves various procedures that aim to enhance the aesthetic qualities of the teeth, including whitening, reshaping, veneers, and crowns. With advancements in technology and materials, cosmetic dentistry has become more accessible, affordable, and effective than ever before, offering various options to help people achieve the smile they have always wanted. Hugh B Rosenblatt, D.M.D., P.A. offers various cosmetic dentistry procedures, including the following:

  1. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is an aesthetic dental procedure that removes stains and discoloration from your teeth to make them appear brighter and whiter. There are several teeth whitening methods, including in-office and at-home treatments. During In-office teeth whitening, your doctor applies a strong bleaching agent directly on your teeth to whiten them. It only takes a single session to lighten your teeth by several shades. At-home treatments may involve applying whitening trays or strips to the teeth over several weeks.

  1. Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are dental restorations that repair cavities or damage to teeth. Unlike traditional metal amalgam fillings, tooth-colored fillings are made of a combination of plastic and glass that your doctor can customize to match the natural color of your teeth. This customization allows for a more natural-looking restoration that blends in seamlessly with your smile. Additionally, tooth-colored fillings are biocompatible, and they do not contain any harmful materials like mercury. Whether you have a small cavity or more extensive damage, this treatment repair the affected area and creates a more uniform appearance in your smile.

  1. Dental veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that your provider places on the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. They typically consist of porcelain or composite resin and can address various cosmetic issues, including discolored, chipped, or misaligned teeth. To prepare the teeth for veneers, Dr. Rosenblatt may remove a small amount of your enamel to allow the veneers to fit properly and blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth. Once the veneers are ready, he bonds them to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive.

  1. Dental crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap your dentist places over the existing tooth structure, providing support and protection. It is typically made of porcelain, metal, or both. Your provider can customize them to match the natural color and shape of your teeth. If you have a chipped, cracked, or decayed tooth, a crown can cover and protect it, restoring its strength and preventing further damage. Crowns can also improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth, creating a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile.

  1. Gum reshaping

Gum reshaping is an aesthetic dental procedure where excess gum tissue is removed to improve the appearance of your smile. The process involves using a laser or scalpel to carefully remove and reshape your gum line, creating a more balanced appearance. Gum reshaping can expose more of your tooth surface, making your teeth appear longer and more symmetrical. It can help correct a “gummy” smile, where too much gum tissue covers the teeth.
