Top Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Teeth Whitening

Your smile is the first thing people notice when they meet you. It stands to reason that most people are highly conscious of their teeth and apprehensive about giving that perfect smile.

There are various procedures that can help you improve your teeth while repairing or strengthening them. Read on to find out what the most common cosmetic dental treatments are.

Teeth Whitening

Perhaps the most common cosmetic dental procedure is teeth whitening. It is used to remove stains and discolorations from your teeth. The whole procedure is relatively easy and cost-effective without requiring any long-term commitments.

The procedure starts with removing any plaque on your teeth. The dentist will then use a whitening agent, sometimes with an activation light. The whitening agent will be rinsed off after 30-60 minutes, but it will keep lightening your teeth for up to 24 hours.

Teeth whitening can last up to a year if you maintain good oral hygiene.

Dental Crown

Also known as caps, dental crowns are fitted over damaged teeth to improve their shape, size, and appearance while strengthening them. This way, dental crowns are used for both restorative and cosmetic procedures.

The procedure involves filing down the weak tooth in the beginning. Once this is accomplished, the crown is placed over it, completely enveloping it. Crowns are typically made of metal, resin, or ceramic.

Dental Implants

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and more than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth. Dental implants are the best solution for tooth loss, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are implanted in the jaw—the titanium root fuses with the bone giving you exceptional durability. After, a crown is placed on the top of the implant to act as a tooth replacement.

Conclusion

Although there are several other cosmetic dental treatments, these are perhaps the most common ones. All of these can help you significantly improve your oral and dental health and enhance your smile.
