Are you thinking about getting cosmetic dentistry in Fort Worth from Country Day Dental? You may be wondering what cosmetic treatments are available and which ones may be right for you. Read on to find out as we discuss a few of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures that Dr. Ryan Schmidgall has to offer.
1. Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is very affordable, and is a great starting point if you’ve never had cosmetic dental treatments. With a quick in-office whitening appointment or a set of professional-grade at-home whitening products, you can reverse years of stains, yellowing, and discoloration.
Teeth whitening is totally non-invasive, appropriate for almost all patients, and provides long-lasting results, so it’s a great option if you want to get started with cosmetic dentistry but aren’t sure where to begin.
2. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding uses a special type of tooth-colored dental resin. This resin is applied directly to the outside of your tooth to add more size, reshape the tooth, and cover up any cosmetic flaws. It can be used to treat stains, chipped teeth, gaps in your smile, uneven teeth, and much more.
Bonding takes only one appointment, and multiple teeth can usually be treated in one consultation at Country Day Dental, making it a good option if you want fast results. It’s also very affordable, especially compared to porcelain veneers.
3. Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are expensive, but are often considered the best way to cover up flaws like stains, gaps in your smile, misshapen teeth, and other such cosmetic issues that may affect your front teeth. Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that fit over your existing teeth.
They cover up your existing tooth and replace the exterior with a natural looking, perfectly shaped piece of porcelain. Veneers look and feel completely natural, last between 10-20 years, and are extremely durable and stain-resistant. However, they do require the permanent, irreversible removal of some tooth enamel.
Invisalign isn’t just an orthodontic treatment. It’s cosmetic, too! Invisalign can completely reshape your bite and the alignment of your teeth, improving your appearance and leading to better overall oral health.
Treatment usually takes about a year, and unlike braces, Invisalign is totally invisible when worn, and there are no dietary restrictions. It’s a particularly great option for older adults who want a healthier, straighter smile.
5. Restorative Dental Care
Restorative dentistry is a pretty large category, including things like dental crowns to repair damaged teeth, dental implants to replace missing teeth, and more. The primary focus of these treatments is not aesthetics, but restoring your oral health.
Still, these treatments do improve your smile. Repairing a cavity with a tooth-colored filling or replacing a missing tooth with an implant will make your smile look better and restore your oral health, too. That’s a win-win!
