When you want to maintain a brighter smile, you can apply several dental cosmetics methods. Cosmetic dentistry solves all issues concerning teeth’s color, spacing, size, alignment, and shape. Bronx Nishita Gandhi, DDS, has experience and skills to enhance your smile using cosmetic treatments like cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and a smile makeover.
Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures
- Cosmetic teeth whitening
This procedure, also called tooth bleaching, can whiten and brighten your teeth from staining and discoloration. The method to be used for whitening teeth is determined by the number of stains in your teeth, age, and cost involved. It can be done from home or in a dental office. It’s better to consult the dentist first because not all teeth can be bleached.
- Cosmetic dental crowns
Crowns are caps made to fit your whole tooth after being prepared by your dentist to replace the entire damaged or decayed tooth on the gum line. They are made out of porcelain or acrylic that has been connected to metal to withstand pressure. Crowns protect a weak tooth from breaking. Crowns treat badly decayed teeth, poorly shaped, chipped, large fillings, broken, or to cover spaces between the teeth.
- Cosmetic teeth shaping
In this procedure, also known as enamel shaping, the dentist reshapes the tooth by removing some enamel or filing. This procedure produces an immediate effect and is not painful.
- Cosmetic tooth bonding
This procedure is where colored materials of the tooth adhere to the tooth. This process is used to improve and repair the tooth’s appearance that has been chipped, badly stained, or broken. Dental bonding is a painless and straightforward procedure that takes sixty minutes and lasts for ten years. They are made of ceramic, porcelain, composite, or porcelain fused to metal. If they are well maintained, they can last for 30 years.
- Cosmetic orthodontics
Orthodontics can correct teeth that are not aligned properly. Braces can be used to adjust the alignment of the teeth by applying pressure. They can be used for children or adults. If you have crooked or buck teeth, find out from your dentist if an orthodontist can be of help.
They are shells made from composite or porcelain, which covers the front teeth. The ultra-thin shells cover flaws visible with color, size, and length of the teeth. The veneer is inserted onto the tooth assisted by a cementing material. They last for about 20 years without collecting stains, and they blend well with other teeth.
- Dental implants
Dental implants are false teeth implanted into the jaw. They are commonly applied to adults losing their teeth as they age. Dental implants are made to look and act like natural teeth. A dental implant is a long-lasting method of replacing tooth roots. Dental implants are made of titanium, which has a better foundation for replacing teeth and strengthening over time.
