Everything You Need to Know About Cosmetic Dentistry
There are a variety of specific reasons why people choose to have cosmetic dental treatments, but all of these treatments have a few things in common. Namely, they make your smile flawless, and they increase your self-confidence. Whether you want whiter teeth or a straighter grin, cosmetic dentistry by Millenium Dental can give you the smile you desire.
Take a look at the list of problems cosmetic dentistry can correct below, and then make your appointment with the caring team at Millenium Dental today.
1. Dark or Stained Teeth
Naturally, most patients turn to whitening treatments to remove teeth stains. These treatments, whether at our office or through take-home whitening trays, are vastly superior to the over-the-counter whitening products you’ll find at the grocery store. We also offer dental bonding with tooth-colored resin for spot treatments and discolored teeth.
Sometimes patients find that porcelain veneers meet their needs better than other teeth-whitening options. We are happy to provide porcelain veneers at Millenium Dental for stained teeth and other issues.
2. Chipped Teeth
Your teeth can easily become chipped from accident or injury, but you don’t have to go through life with imperfect chompers. We provide dental bonding to repair minor chips. For more extensive damage, you should consider porcelain veneers.
3. Crooked Teeth
You may think braces are the only answer for crooked teeth, but this is not always the case. Mildly crooked teeth can sometimes be fixed with veneers, sparing you from the hassle and expense of orthodontic treatment.
4. Missing Teeth
If you’re missing a tooth or two, you likely do not need partial dentures. Rather, your dentist can use crowns and bridges to complete your smile. You won’t hesitate to grin when your smile is restored to its original, whole state.
5. Cracked or Worn Teeth
What can you do when a tooth is cracked or worn? Fortunately, a crown can make all the difference in correcting this problem. A crown covers your tooth and also provides reinforcement. In essence, a crown instantly gives your tooth an attractive appearance, while protecting it against further damage.
6. Unattractive Fillings
You may not mind having a silver filling in a back tooth that is not easily seen when you smile. However, silver fillings in more conspicuous locations can be distracting and unattractive. Once again, a crown is the answer. A crown from your dentist will cover fillings and give you a flawless smile.
7. Large Gaps
A large gap between your teeth can be a noticeable cosmetic flaw. You may believe braces are required to close this gap, but a set of porcelain veneers or dental bonding can be just as effective in many cases.
Cavities need fillings to prevent decay from worsening, but silver fillings are not your only option. Millennium Dental offers fillings made from composite resin. This tooth-colored material is inconspicuous and won’t ruin the appearance of your smile the way that silver amalgam can.
9. Broken Teeth
Teeth that are completely broken are not only homely, but they can also keep you from chewing properly. Why not have your broken teeth covered with crowns for a better appearance and restored functionality?
10. A Complete Smile Makeover
To get a red carpet-worthy smile, most patients only need a few cosmetic dental treatments. Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your grin and, combined with other procedures as needed, give your teeth a look that will make your friends jealous.
