Cosmetic Dentistry Not Just for Youngsters
As people age, teeth can become discolored, chipped, or lost altogether. With that being said there’s no reason why seniors can’t have a bright, healthy smile with cosmetic dentistry.
With cosmetic dentistry from Paradise Dental, you can transform your smile and improve your self-confidence.
Cosmetic Dentistry and Whitening
Dr. Jeffrey Martins explains that one of the easiest and most affordable ways to improve your smile is through teeth whitening. Whitening can remove years of staining and discoloration from your teeth, leaving them several shades whiter.
While there are many over-the-counter whitening products available, professional whitening from a cosmetic dentist can provide faster and more dramatic results.
Dental Implants for Missing Teeth
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants can provide a permanent solution. Implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone to create a stable base for a replacement tooth. Implants look and feel like natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime with proper care.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a quick and easy way to repair chipped or cracked teeth, fill in gaps between teeth, or improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
During the procedure, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth and then hardened with a special light. The result is a natural-looking tooth that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Enamel Shaping and Cosmetic Dentistry
Enamel shaping, also known as contouring, is a procedure in which a cosmetic dentist reshapes the enamel of your teeth to improve their appearance. It can correct minor imperfections such as chips, bumps, or uneven edges. The procedure is painless and can be completed in just one visit.
Clear Removable Braces
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, clear removable braces can provide a discreet and comfortable way to straighten them. Unlike traditional braces, clear braces use clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. You can remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss, and they are virtually invisible when worn.
If you have cavities or old metal fillings that are showing, tooth-colored fillings can provide a more natural-looking alternative. These fillings are made of a composite resin that matches the color of your natural teeth, so they blend in seamlessly with your smile.
Dental Bridges and Crowns
Dental bridges and crowns can restore the appearance and function of damaged or missing teeth. Moreover, a bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is anchored to the surrounding teeth. A crown on the other hand is a cap that covers a damaged tooth. Both can be made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations that are used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are made of porcelain or composite resin and are bonded to the tooth. Inlays and onlays can be used to replace old metal fillings or to repair more extensive damage.
