Seven Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help

Seven Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help

Cosmetic dentistry is an elective dental procedure. Its goal is to better the appearance of your teeth and smile. Read on to find out more.

When you have misaligned, discolored, damaged, or missing, it can affect your self-confidence and dental health. Fortunately, with cosmetic dentistry in Richmond Hill, NY, you can get a smile makeover. Our cosmetic dentistry services can help you:

  1. Brightens Your Smile  

Discolored and yellow teeth can be nerve-wracking, as they lower your self-esteem. We use a bleaching agent which is made up of hydrogen peroxide. The bleaching agent is the most effective and quickest method to whiten your teeth. Our dentist in Richmond Hill, NY, will apply the bleach directly to the teeth. Then, we expose the bleach to light to speed and intensify the process. We brighten your smile in less than one hour.

  1. Close Unsightly Gaps in Your Mouth

Unattractive gaps due to a missing tooth make you feel self-conscious. But, we can close the gaps with:

  • Dental bridges. Our dentist can bridge/close the gap with a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a human-made tooth that fills (close) the gap by creating a natural appearance. We customize them to meet your dental needs.
  • Implants. It’s an artificial tooth root that fuses well with the jawbone to support an artificial tooth. Once we have surgically attached it, our dentist mounts a human-made tooth to the implant.
  1. Straighten Your Teeth 

Crooked teeth may not fit well correctly and are hard to clean. To correct this, our cosmetic dentist in Richmond Hill may recommend Invisalign. You will wear a sequence of clear plastic aligners to straighten the teeth into proper position. It’s hard to notice it, and you can remove the brace to brush the teeth or have a meal if you need to.

  1. Get Rid of Cavities

Untreated cavities increase the risk of infection. To treat tooth decay, we recommend Inlays and onlays. Inlays and onlays are indirect restoration/filling. Our dental team will prepare them in the dental laboratory as a single solid piece and cements it in your teeth holes (cavities). The restoration fits the shape and size of your caries.

We use them to get rid of cavities if the tooth is severely damaged and can’t support a regular filling. The inlays and onlays strengthen the teeth and restore their shape. Furthermore, they prevent further decay.

  1. Cover Cracked Teeth 

Suppose you experience pain while chewing food or sudden teeth sensitivity to hot or cold. Chances are, you have a cracked tooth. If a front tooth is cracked, dental bonding is a perfect option for a flash winning smile. Our dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the tooth’s surface. Then we will expose it to ultraviolet light to harden it.

  1. Strengthen Your Teeth

Well built, healthy teeth help you chew the right food to derive the nutrients for the body. Enamel is a tough outer shell of the tooth that makes the teeth well built. With time, the enamel wears away. Eventually, the teeth weaken, making it susceptible to breakage. Our dentist in Richmond Hill, NY, cements porcelain veneers to strengthen your teeth.

Dental veneers are thin cells of composite or porcelain resin that are customized to fit over the teeth. They are durable and make the teeth robust.

  1. Have All Your Teeth Same Size

Enamel reshaping may come in handy if you have a small chip, a tooth surface abnormality, or uneven teeth. Our dentist uses a laser or a drill to remove some enamel gently.  By shaping, we change the length, shape, or surface of your teeth/tooth. Once we have contoured the teeth to the desired size, we polish them. You are ready to go home with an appealing smile.

The procedure is simple and provides instant results. Remember to protect the thinned enamel from abrasive forces. Still, use a soft brush to keep the solid substance safe.
