What Are the Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
If you are unhappy with a part of or the overall appearance of your smile, our cosmetic dentist can recommend and perform specific procedures to improve it. Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide patients at Russell Family Dentistry include the following:
When patients want whiter teeth, they turn to dentists for the most effective solutions. Our dentist offers in-office whitening treatments that can visibly brighten your smile in only one visit. To whiten the teeth, the dentist applies a prescription-strength whitening gel and then uses a special light to accelerate the whitening process.
Another quick and easy way to whiten your teeth and transform the look of your smile is to choose a whitening kit that contains customized trays and a special whitening gel for at-home use. Our dentist will provide comprehensive instructions on how to use the whitening system at home.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth to improve its appearance. Veneers are placed over teeth with imperfections such as chips, discoloration, or gaps between them. Porcelain veneers are customized to fit your smile and look completely natural. They are resistant to staining from food and beverages, making them a great option for patients who want a lasting bright smile.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength and improve its appearance. Ceramic and porcelain are both strong and natural-looking materials used for fabricating dental crowns. Porcelain is especially popular due to its translucent qualities, allowing it to blend in with natural teeth.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that repairs minor tooth damage. It uses a thin coating of tooth-colored resin that is applied to a tooth, shaped, hardened, and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
