5 Popular Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Reasons You May Want Them

There are many examples of cosmetic dentistry, each of which is designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. If you’re wondering what the right options are for you, read on to learn about five of the most popular examples. Then contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 to make an appointment to see an experienced cosmetic dentist.

  1. Teeth whitening
  2. Many habits can cause teeth to become discolored. This includes the obvious like smoking and using tobacco products, but even drinking coffee, tea, wine, or soda can cause staining on your teeth. There are do-it-yourself whitening products on the market but they are slower and not as effective compared to professional teeth whitening. We can generally brighten up your teeth in a single treatment completed in one appointment.

  3. Composite bonding
  4. If your teeth are broken or decayed then composite bonding may be a great choice for you. It rebuilds those areas and is the color of your natural tooth. We’ll start by forming the material into the right shape. We then cure it with a high-intensity light that restores complete functionality to your teeth and leaves them looking and feeling as good as a natural tooth. If you have a chipped tooth, a broken tooth, or a large portion of tooth that needs to be removed due to decay, then composite bonding may be the answer you’re looking for.

  5. Veneers
  6. Dental veneers are extremely thin coatings put on your teeth. They’re made of a medical-grade ceramic material, usually porcelain, and are custom-fitted for you. They’re color-matched to blend in with your natural teeth and are applied via adhesive. They’re a top choice for people with numerous dental issues, such as crooked teeth, gaps in their teeth, enamel damage.

  7. Implants
  8. Dental implants are used to replace teeth that are entirely gone. We start by taking a titanium screw and attaching it to your jawbone. We then use that in order to anchor a crown. This replaces the lost tooth entirely. Implants are generally a good choice for a person who’s lost a tooth but doesn’t need full dentures or doesn’t need a bridge.

  9. Orthodontics
  10. You may associate braces with kids but it’s not just teens and adolescents that can benefit from them. They are a good option to straight teeth and handle other dental issues. The good news is that some of today’s options are clear and can be removed. This makes it easy to keep teeth clean and brushed, and also makes it easy to eat.

If you are considering any type of cosmetic dentistry then we hope you’ll contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 to make an appointment. Not every option is right for every person, but we can complete an exam and let you know what you may benefit from. If you are tired of being less than thrilled with your smile, then we look forward to working with you.
