Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental services that improve your smile. Various procedures can whiten, straighten, and restore your teeth and a natural-looking smile. Cosmetic dentistry can boost your confidence, empowering you to take on the world. It can also affect the way the world views you.
Why do people seek cosmetic dentistry?
People opt for cosmetic dentistry services to improve a variety of dental problems and insecurities, including:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Missing teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Crooked teeth
What kinds of procedures are involved in cosmetic dentistry?
- Popular cosmetic procedures include:
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic Bonding
Healthy Smile Dental offers many of these dental measures so you can achieve a flawless smile. These include crowns or veneers, which are placed over your teeth to correct discoloration, correct spacing, and change the profile of a misshapen tooth. Bridges are also used to replace missing teeth with artificial ones.
Teeth bleaching methods can also accomplish color correction. Teeth whitening is a popular request as teeth are easily stained by ingesting certain foods or drinks, smoking, or taking certain medications. By creating a custom mouthpiece tray, Dr. Baek will apply the appropriate amount of whitening solution for your teeth.
Dr. Hannah Baek of Healthy Smile Dental also offers tooth-colored or white filling procedures to restore decayed teeth. For cosmetic purposes, they’re used for color correction of the teeth and reshaping disfigured teeth. Advantages of these composite resin fillings mainly have to do with an enhanced aesthetic appearance. Dr. Baek can also create a color to match your current tooth. Composites then bond the filling to your real tooth and protect its remaining structure.
You may experience some tooth sensitivity after the procedure, and the filling is still prone to staining like your natural teeth.
Which procedure is right for me?
The treatment for you depends on your desired result, plus the condition of your teeth. Dr. Hannah Baek can examine your teeth and create a treatment plan based on what you want to achieve.
Don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Baek questions about your dental procedure: what it entails, and the type of maintenance required.
