Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a subcategory of dentistry dedicated to enhancing and highlighting the beauty of your natural smile and simultaneously improving or restoring its function. 

Keep Smiling Dental PC can beautify your smile using numerous services, including but not limited to:

  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Dental bonding
  • Composite fillings 
  • Complete and partial dentures

Services such as these provide solutions for issues such as stained teeth, chipped and broken teeth, crooked teeth, and missing teeth. The practice also offers full smile makeovers.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure during which the dental team applies a composite resin to your teeth. They can use dental bonding to fix many minor cosmetic problems, such as:

  • Repairing tooth cracks and chips
  • Reducing gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Concealing discolorations
  • Repairing decayed teeth
  • Lengthening an uneven tooth

If you have a cavity, your team can also use the resin as a composite filling to seal your tooth after they’ve cleaned it out.

Dental bonding offers countless advantages, including the fact that it is a less expensive and quicker treatment than other cosmetic procedures, such as dental crown placement. Typically, it only takes Keep Smiling Dental PC about an hour to complete bonding. 

Dental bonding also doesn’t require anesthesia.

If you’re concerned about staining your bonded teeth, the practice may recommend veneers. Veneers are stain-resistant, razor-thin porcelain shells. To improve the appearance of your smile, your team bonds them to the surface of your teeth.

What is a smile makeover?

If you want to re-imagine your entire smile, a smile makeover may be right for you. During a smile makeover, the practice can use any combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures to create the smile of your dreams. 

To formulate the perfect plan for your dream smile, Keep Smiling Dental PC starts with a consultation. 

During your consultation, you discuss with the team your goals and desires for treatment. You review the things that you like about your smile, and those things about your smile that you aren’t so happy about.

Next, your team considers a range of variables, like:

  • Teeth size and alignment
  • Gum tissue size and shape
  • Teeth color 
  • Facial appearance

They use these variables to decide details like the shape and length of your new teeth, and what color teeth best compliments your natural features.

After considering all of this, your team puts together your treatment plan and schedules your next visit.
