Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures have the objective of improving the appearance of your teeth, primarily by altering their shape, alignment, and color.
While many cosmetic dental procedures, such as crowns, may also improve the function of your teeth, the primary objective is enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is not always necessary to maintain good oral health, but many people find that cosmetic dentistry can restore and maintain their confidence in their smile.
What kind of problems does cosmetic dentistry solve?
If you’re experiencing any of the following, cosmetic dentistry may offer solutions:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Missing teeth
- Stains or discoloration, especially caused by coffee, wine, medications, or tobacco
- Gapped or misaligned teeth
- Irregular or receding gum lines
If the appearance of your teeth has become a source of anxiety for you, talk to a dentist at McCormack Dental Group about what options cosmetic dentistry could offer you.
What treatments does cosmetic dentistry include?
There are a wide variety of procedures available in cosmetic dentistry. In many cases, cosmetic dentistry corrects teeth that have become misshapen by damage or injury. Cosmetic dentistry can alter the shape, size, and alignment of your teeth through many treatments.
Porcelain dental crowns, all-white fillings, inlays, and onlays, are all examples of treatments that can restore the shape of a tooth or its appearance. If you have existing fillings or crowns made of metal, McCormack Dental Group offers all-white fillings and porcelain crowns to help restore a more natural appearance to your teeth.
Crowns cover individual teeth that are broken or cracked, suffer deep decay, or are discolored. McCormack Dental Group offers same-day CEREC® crowns, so you can complete your treatment in one visit.
Porcelain veneers are also an option for restoring your teeth, especially when treating multiple teeth or those in the front of your mouth. Veneers are wafer-thin layers of porcelain that your dentist bonds directly to your teeth, and can remedy a wide variety of cosmetic issues, such as discoloration or misshapen teeth.
If you have misaligned teeth, your dentist may recommend orthodontic treatment. McCormack Dental Group offers the highly advanced Invisalign® system that uses clear aligners to straighten or correct teeth. An orthodontist is on staff to ensure the best orthodontic treatment for your needs.
If teeth are missing, or need replacement, bridges or dental implants can fill in the gap left behind, and prevent your other teeth from shifting. In addition to preserving the function and health of your teeth, this has the cosmetic benefit of preventing further misalignment of your teeth and restoring your self-confidence after tooth loss.
McCormack Dental Group also offers teeth whitening that can restore your teeth to a healthy, natural shade of white through the Zoom bleaching system. When you get Zoom whitening in the office, your dentist applies hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and shines a special light on it to increase the bleaching power. Zoom whitening treatment is also available in convenient take-home trays, molded specifically to your mouth, to ensure maximum efficacy.
