Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry that improves the appearance of your smile. This field of dentistry provides a number of benefits, including:
However, cosmetic dentistry isn't just for looks. It can also help to improve your bite, repair broken teeth, and improve your tooth's function.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-shaped porcelain that are bonded to the front of teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Veneers are placed over the course of two visits. During the first visit, Dr. Juboori will capture molds of your teeth. These molds will guide the dental lab in creating your veneers.
On your second visit, Dr. Juboori will attach the veneers to your teeth and polish them for a natural-looking shine.
Teeth whitening treatments use various bleaching agents to make teeth whiter. These treatments usually contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide as the bleaching agent. The concentration of this bleaching agent determines the results a patient can expect.
A patient who wants to straighten their teeth discreetly without braces can opt for Invisalign®. Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that uses transparent aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made of a thermoplastic material, which is virtually invisible when worn.
A dental bonding procedure is good for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile. Unlike a dental crown or porcelain veneer, a dental bonding procedure can be completed in just one visit to the dentist's office. When applying a dental bonding, the dentist will apply a compound to the surface of your tooth, sculpt it into place, and harden it. The procedure is quick, easy, and affordable.
A crown is a dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials, including metal, ceramic, and porcelain. Porcelain crowns are a common cosmetic restoration. They are indistinguishable from natural teeth, and unlike metal crowns, they do not contain mercury.
Crowns are used for a variety of reasons. When a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth, a filling may not be sufficient to restore the tooth. A crown can protect the tooth from further damage. They are also used to support a dental bridge, cover a misshapen or severely discolored teeth, or cover a tooth after a root canal.
