Cosmetic dentistry is a field that focuses on enhancing the appearance of your teeth. These days people have become extremely conscious about the way they look. Everybody wants to have a bright sparkling smile just like celebrities. Moreover, many are concerned about maintaining their overall dental health.
Downtown Dental offers various procedures to improve your smile. Some of them are:
Over the years, our teeth tend to become pale when we don’t take proper care of them. Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is done to turn your teeth lighter than its natural color. Our cosmetic dentists do this procedure for our patients whose teeth require a lot of cleanup. So the first step is to restore the natural appearance of the patient’s teeth and then start the process of whitening. Teeth whitening can be done through different methods. Our dentists will help you decide the method most suitable to you.
Many of our patients come with crooked teeth or damaged enamel. For such patients, we recommend dental veneers. Dental veneers are made of porcelain and are wafer-thin. They are applied to the front surface of each tooth using an adhesive. If maintained well, these dental veneers can last for about 20 years. Each veneer is custom-made for the patient. Our dentists closely work the patient to decide on the size and color of the veneer. And the best part is no one will even come to know that you have undergone a cosmetic dental procedure as veneers look very natural and beautiful.
Composite bonding is one of our most popular services. It is an affordable solution to restore chipped teeth, discoloration, and cavities. In this procedure, our dentists drill out the tooth decay and apply composite filling in the affected area. This filling is made of durable plastic. It is then hardened using ultraviolet or laser light. Our dentist then shapes and polishes the teeth. Composite bonding is a fairly simple procedure and involves no anesthesia. Our composite bonding procedure gets done in just one or two sittings.
Inlays and Outlays
Inlays and outlays are done to fill damaged teeth. They are also known as indirect fillings. These fillings are made of porcelain, gold, and composite materials. These fillings are prepared in a dental laboratory. The filling is called ‘inlay’ when it covers the center of the teeth and, it’s referred to as ‘onlay’ when the filling covers the biting surface of the teeth or one or more points on the teeth. Inlays and outlays are an alternative to dental crowns.
Some patients come with damaged and decayed teeth, and we recommend dental crowns to them. Dental crowns cover the entire damaged and decayed teeth below the gum line. This procedure restores the shape and size of the infected teeth and enhances its aesthetic appeal. So they have both restorative and cosmetic benefits. At Downtown Dental, you can rest assured as we use the best dental material for your teeth.
Dental implants are used for people with teeth loss. In this procedure, our dentists insert a titanium tooth which is ingrained in the bone socket of the missing tooth. Over a period of time, the bone and supporting tissue fuse to the dental implant. They are then permanently fixed in your mouth. After undergoing this procedure, you will have to be meticulous with your oral hygiene habits to clear plaque and tartar around the implant.
