Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry: How would you choose the best option for you?

The appearance of your smile is just as significant as your oral health. Many of us may focus only on one of these aspects and ignore the other, which isn’t a healthy practice. Getting dental conditions addressed during their early stages would keep them from taking a toll on your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic and restorative dental procedures help you get your natural smile back. 

Popular Treatment Procedures 

When it comes to enhancing the appearance of your smile and restoring your teeth to their ideal condition, here are some of the most sought-after treatment procedures:

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is performed to remove the stains from the surface of the teeth using dental bleaching products, such as a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. When applied to the teeth and activated, it will release oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel and bleach the coloring particles. The process is quite simple, convenient, effective, and less time-consuming.

  • Composite Bonding:Composite resin made from tooth-colored material will be applied to the teeth in multiple layers and hardened. This process is used to restore teeth affected by chipping, cracks, receding gum line, excessive wear, etc. Since the resin is tooth-colored, it stays under disguise and keeps anyone from noticing it.

  • Crowns and Veneers: Dental crowns resemble our natural teeth in appearance from the outside but are hollow on the inside. They are placed on the teeth to cover them fully and bonded firmly in place with dental adhesives. Veneers are simpler restorations that resemble the contour of the frontal face of the teeth. They are extremely thin and can be used to enhance the appearance of the teeth and cover surface imperfections, such as cracks, chipping, extreme discoloration, etc.

  • Bridges and Implants:Dental bridges are ceramic restorations used to replace missing natural teeth. They are held in place by crowns on either side, which are bonded to the adjoining teeth. Dental implants are far more stable and stronger as they are placed directly in the jawbone. Both these restorations help you regain your lost smile and oral functionality.

  • Fillings: Fillings are made from composite resin or dental-grade ceramic - both of which are tooth-colored and biocompatible materials. They offer excellent sealing properties and can be shaped as required.
