Top 8 Cosmetic Dental Procedures for the Perfect Smile

This read will comprehensively examine dental procedures and how they can transform an individual’s smile.

1. Dental Crowns or Caps

When a tooth sustains damage, be it fracturing, breaking, or decaying, it’s no longer strong enough to function optimally and requires support. Dental crowns or caps care coverings that are tooth-shaped and placed over a weakened or damaged tooth to restore its size, shape, and strength and boost its appearance. They are often made of porcelain to mimic the tooth’s natural look. The material is also particularly durable, thus able to effectively restore a mouth’s function.

Dental crowns can last up to 15 years with the right care and maintenance.

2. Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells placed on the teeth’ front side to mask their imperfections. More often than not, they are made of porcelain or composite materials and mimic the natural tooth color to help address various cosmetic dental concerns. These include chipped or misshapen teeth, small alignment issues, gaps between teeth, and discoloration. They can also help strengthen weakened teeth and restore the mouth’s optimal function.

The process of getting veneers takes two or three visits to the dentist. During the initial visit, the practitioner assesses the patient’s dental health to determine if veneers are the best option. Next, they take impressions of the patient’s teeth to make veneers tailored to their unique needs. Once ready, the veneers are bonded onto the teeth’ front surface using a special adhesive. Dental veneers made of porcelain are extremely durable, and with the right care and maintenance, they can last up to 20 years.

3. Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can be a suitable cosmetic procedure for people who have lost a tooth. A dental bridge is a form of restoration procedure used to replace a missing tooth by “bridging” the gap between two adjacent teeth. It consists of multiple dental crowns attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap, referred to as abutment teeth, with a fake tooth in between, known as a pontic.

In addition to restoring a healthy smile, dental bridges also have structural benefits such as preventing facial from changing or sagging due to the absence of teeth. They also prevent the remaining teeth from shifting because of the gap in an individual’s mouth. Dental bridges are a good way to replace a person’s ability to chew and speak properly, and with proper care, they can last more than a decade.

4. Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular cosmetic dental procedure that offers a modern alternative to bridges and dentures. Following tooth loss, it is imperative to handle it before complications arise. A professional cosmetic dentist will most likely recommend implants to restore the mouth’s appearance and function.

Dental implants are usually made of titanium or zirconium oxide, although other materials like ceramic and gold alloys may be used as long as they can fuse with the jaw to provide a robust and stable foundation for replacement teeth.

The first appointment with the dentist involves surgically placing the implant into the jawbone. It is then left to heal and fuse with the jawbone for a few months. Once the dental implant has completely integrated with the jawbone, the practitioner attaches a connector known as an abutment. This acts as a support for a dental bridge, crown, or denture.

Implants have many benefits, including increased comfort, improved appearance, improved speech, and better oral health. They can last up to 30 years and provide a permanent solution to lost teeth.

5. Dental Bonding

This dental procedure is used to correct uneven teeth, chips, fractures, gaps, and other minor damages. Dental bonding is non-invasive and usually done in a single dentist appointment. A small amount of composite resin is added to the affected tooth during the procedure. It’s then sculpted and contoured to properly fit the patient’s tooth. The resin’s color is also adjusted to match the rest of the teeth.

6. Tooth Recontouring

Most dentists recommend recontouring for people looking to adjust their teeth length and achieve a symmetrical smile. During this procedure, the dentist uses specialized tools to slightly reshape the teeth until they are level. Any corners that are too square are rounded, and the uneven edges are corrected. This minimally invasive and relatively inexpensive dental procedure provides patients with a quick solution to correct cosmetic dental concerns, including fixing their smile.

7. Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners are a form of orthodontic treatment that incorporates a series of tailor-made, clear plastic trays to straighten teeth over time. They are designed to apply gentle, controlled force to the teeth that need to be shifted to the right position. Also, since they are made from plastic, they are virtually undetectable, making them a good option for those who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly.

8. Teeth Whitening

Even if you fix crooked, chipped, or missing teeth, it is impossible to achieve that Hollywood-worthy smile. This is where teeth whitening comes into the picture. There are various ways to whiten teeth, and a professional cosmetic dentist will recommend the best one. Getting rid of those yellow stains caused by smoking, red wine, tea, or coffee can instantly transform a smile and boost an individual’s confidence.
