All About Cosmetic Dentistry

It used to be that cosmetic dental procedures were only available to celebrities and people with money, this is no longer the case. Gold Coast Chicago cosmetic dentists now can offer their patients a host of options that put the quest for a beautiful smile into the hands of millions of people, not just the rich and famous.

Cosmetic dentists can make subtle changes to your smile or undertake a full blown smile makeover, if your teeth are discolored, chipped, crooked or missing then cosmetic dentistry may be exactly what you have been looking for.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Traditional, or restorative dentistry focuses on the health of teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry on the other hand focuses on the appearance of your teeth and improving your smile.

Although cosmetic dentistry is not new by any means, recent advances in procedures and materials allow dentists to provide anything from simple teeth whitening to replacing missing teeth to complete smile makeovers.

Cosmetic dentistry options:

There are a number of procedures available, all of which are designed to improve your smile and appearance; the procedures include but are not limited to:

   * Teeth whitening: Teeth that are stained or discolored from beverages such as coffee and tea can be whitened and brightened. The process uses a bleach compound and in less than an hour in a dentist’s office your teeth can be whitened by as much as six shades.

   * Veneers: Veneers are made from either resin or porcelain, they are designed to fit on the front and sides of teeth that are chipped, badly discolored; slightly misaligned or have wide gaps between the teeth.

   * Dental implants: It used to be that the solutions available for missing teeth were either bridges or dentures, neither of which was all that good. Today, patients with a missing tooth can have titanium “root” imbedded directly into their jaw bone. Once the implant has stabilized a crown is placed on top. A dental implant looks, feels and acts like a natural tooth.

Gold Coast Chicago cosmetic dentists can use one or a number of procedures, whatever is necessary to improve and enhance your teeth and smile.
