The Top Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry Right Now

Advancements in cosmetic dentistry ensure that everyone can get the perfect smile. No matter what tooth defects you experience, there are many procedures you can rely on to correct them.

We won't go into detail about all of them; that would take a whole booklet. But we will exemplify four advancements that are trending right now.

1. Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Do you have any broken or chipped teeth? When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, cosmetic bonding is a procedure that can repair and preserve the natural look of the tooth.

Many dentists only work to maintain the functionality of the tooth, rather than its aesthetics. With composite bonding, you can get both.

Your dentist will use a composite material similar to the enamel of your teeth. Here is how the procedure takes place:

  • The dentist covers your cavity or tooth surface with the composite material
  • He/She then proceeds to mold the material according to the shape of the affected tooth
  • He/She will use a tool that emits a potent light which hardens the material into place

The procedure is painless, and will return the real shine to your smile.

2. Have Discolored Teeth? Teeth Whitening Is Right for You

Many people brush and floss properly. But, for varied reasons, their teeth get stained. It's usually because they drink a lot of coffee, tea, or wine. All of these beverages discolor your teeth, especially wine because of its acidity.

Tooth discoloration can also come from regular smoking. No matter how well you clean your teeth, if you're a heavy smoker, your teeth will start yellowing.

In cosmetic dentistry, tooth whitening involves the bleaching of the teeth. That can be done by the dentist or by yourself with bleaching trays.

By whitening your teeth, you weaken them for a few days. "Make sure to avoid foods and drinks that stain your teeth if you go through teeth whitening" states Phoenix cosmetic dentist, Dr. Roderick.

3. A Final Solution: Dental Veneers

Tooth whitening doesn't work for everyone. Neither does cosmetic bonding. Some teeth are just more sensitive than others.

Fortunately, dental veneers can serve as an excellent method of correcting these problems. Porcelain veneers are attached to your teeth to repair them. They can also hide tooth discoloration and gaps in your teeth.

Moreover, they correct the appearance of crooked teeth to give new life to your smile.

4. The Highlight of Cosmetic Dentistry: Dental Implants

When the tooth is removed, not even veneers can bring them back. Fortunately, you can get dental implants! They are basically the prosthetics of dentistry.

If you get a tooth extraction, your smile will give out the impression of poor dental hygiene.

Getting a dental implant also preserves your youthful appearance. You might not have known, but missing teeth cause changes to the facial structure. Your face "collapses" so to speak, and will give the impression of aging.

Sounds pretty scary, doesn't it? Luckily, dental implants are a very common procedure nowadays. You can get the problem fixed in no time.
