Although we focus on different dental specialties that are essential for the health of your mouth like periodontal dentistry and teeth cleaning, Cosmetic Dentistry is different.
Cosmetic Dentistry is intended to change the appearance of your teeth, gums or bite. Through altering the color, shape or size of your teeth or gums, we can get you a fuller, healthier smile.
A wonderful way to restore the appearance of your smile is to sue veneers to add a full facade to your tooth. Veneers have a protective property to them as well, so your tooth will be more durable after application.
There are two types of veneers: composite material and porcelain, but essentially the are applied in the same way.
Your dental technician will create a custom veneer that fits over your tooth after taking measurements and then the veneer is applied with a resin cement for a near permanent replacement.
Who would benefit from dental veneers?
- Patients with smaller teeth that cannot be aligned with traditional orthodontics can received veneers for a fuller smile
- Patients with damaged teeth can get veneers for their protective properties
- Patients with worn teeth can get fuller, wider teeth through the application of veneers
- Patients with yellow teeth than resist whitening can get veneers for a whiter smile
Bonding and White Fillings
Also known as composite filling or tooth color fillings are an alternative to traditional metal fillings. Although metal fillings are other easier to apply, white fillings have become more widely used because they are nearly undetectable when compared to metal and gold fillings.
Because we value a bright, while smile as a aesthetic choice, White Fillings are a great solution to cavities versus traditional fillings.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are another cosmetic dental technique used but Loretto Family dentistry to keep your mouth aesthetically pleasing while maintaining the strength and integrity of your teeth.
By taking dental impressions and creating a custom mold for your inlay or onlay we can create a durable, but form fitting implant to restore your teeth.
Inlays sit flat within the pit of your tooth, called the sulcus, while a onlay is used to form a new cusp (the crest of the teeth). Using these techniques we are able to create a fully functional tooth. You will be able to eat better, stay protected and get a tooth that is consistent with the others within your bite.
Veneers, Bonding & Inlay-and-Onlays, are not the only cosmetic dentistry specialty we offer. We can get you a fuller, whiter smile with our Teeth Cleaning services in a few visits.
