Cosmetic dentistry is the process of providing dental care that is intended to enhance the smile and correct teeth that are discolored, cracked, chipped, or unevenly spaced. There are several different types of cosmetic dentistry available to give you a smile that you can feel proud of. Dr. Jonathon Won and his team provide all types of cosmetic dentistry at Pacific Dental Care in Rosamond, West Palmdale, Lancaster, and East Palmdale—read on to learn more.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide range of corrective solutions such as:
- Gum Contouring – This procedure corrects an uneven gum line to produce a more attractive smile.
- Dental Bonding – Tooth-colored composite is applied to the teeth before being polished and shaped to make it match the rest of the teeth.
- Porcelain Veneers – Ceramic shells are used to cover the front of the teeth to hide chips, cracks, gaps, and stains.
- Dental Whitening – Teeth may be whitened either using laser whitening or a teeth bleaching procedure.
- Dental Bridges – A bridge is a structure comprised of two crowns and a prosthetic tooth. This is used to bridge the gap caused by a missing tooth.
- Dental Implants – An artificial root is embedded within the jaw and crowned with a prosthetic tooth.
- Dental Inlays/Onlays – Natural-looking restorations for repairing damaged teeth. They can be used with minimal tooth reduction.
- Invisalign – A teeth-straightening solution that uses clear aligners instead of metal braces.
- Bone Grafting – Oral bone loss can occur as a result of trauma or periodontal disease. Bone grafting replaces lost bone to provide structural support.
Cosmetic dentistry not only improves the appearance and health of your teeth, but it can also give you a new feeling of confidence because you know that you are looking your best.
