Cosmetic dentistry is a great investment. Restoring your smile is always worth the price, and today there are more options than ever for cosmetic dentistry, especially at Busk Family Dentistry.
But these options can make it hard to know what’s right for you. Should you get veneers? Do you need a porcelain crown? What about bonding and shaping?
In this blog, we’ll go over the basics of our most popular cosmetic procedures and discuss which ones might be right for you.
1. Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a great way to get a brighter smile on a budget. You can remove surface stains from smoking or restore teeth that have become yellowed due to age. With just a single appointment at our offices, or with take-home whitening trays, you can restore your smile without overspending.
2. Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are usually used for cosmetic dentistry issues such as chipped or misshapen teeth. They can also be used to treat teeth that are stained on the inside from antibiotics like tetracycline or fillings.
Veneers can also be used to correct slightly crooked or gapped teeth, though more serious cases may require orthodontic treatment.
3. Bonding And Shaping
Bonding and shaping uses advanced dental resin to add to the structure of your existing teeth, or reshape the teeth. Bonding and shaping are great options if issues are minor, and you don’t want to invest in porcelain veneers.
Invisalign is the best choice for fast orthodontic correction. If your teeth are crooked but you do not have major bite issues or other orthodontic problems, Invisalign can give you the smile of your dreams in about a year, depending on your case. Best of all, Invisalign is subtle, and can be worn without anyone knowing that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
5. Dental Implants, Bridges, And Dentures
Dental implants, bridges, and dentures are technically restorative procedures, but they’re also cosmetic, as they improve the appearance of your smile.
A dental implant is usually the best way to replace a missing tooth, but dentures and dental bridges may be appropriate for some patients who are missing multiple teeth or who cannot afford a dental implant.
6. Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns are a great way to restore damaged teeth. If you have a cracked tooth from an accident, for example, a porcelain crown can cover it up and provide a totally natural appearance.
You can also use porcelain crowns to replace older dental crowns made of steel or gold, giving you a more natural and beautiful smile.
