Cosmetic dentistry has many overlaps with other aspects of dentistry in general, but with an added focus on improving the appearance of our teeth. Employing a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments our Methuen, MA, dentist can renew our smile. We'll explore some below, but for more information turn to Dr. George Abou-Ezzi of Pleasant Dental Center.
A Brighter Whiter Smile
Our dentist will always recommend good dental health as a priority as brushing and flossing, and regular in-office dental cleanings can greatly improve our smile's appearance. But for those stubborn stains on unrestored teeth, professional whitening by our dentist can whiten our smile much better and faster than any over-the-counter product.
Repair Our Teeth
Dental fillings are as basic as it gets with dentistry, but the added benefit of cosmetic dentistry is the use of tooth-colored fillings. These perform just like traditional dental fillings but they can be made to match the color of our teeth so they practically vanish among them.
Using the same materials as with tooth-colored fillings our dentist can also repair our teeth if they have been chipped, and can also correct small gaps and even shape teeth that are too short or otherwise misshapen.
Restoring Our Smile
An alternative to correcting smile imperfections is dental veneers. These are thin but strong tooth-shaped shells that are bonded onto our teeth and are often used to radically transform smiles by using a number of them at once.
Veneers are an excellent choice when there is still a good amount of tooth structure present and typically are reserved for front teeth. So a dental crown is more appropriate for molars and also for teeth that have lost significant structure, as a crown will protect the tooth and return to it its appearance and its function.
