Cosmetic DenistryCosmetic dentistry is not general dentistry, in which the care is for the actual health of your teeth, but cosmetic dentistry instead is dental work that is completed purely for cosmetic reasons. Cosmetic dentistry may be sought after for a multitude of reasons, but the desired result of dentistry work in the cosmetic field is an improved smile.
When considering cosmetic dentistry, there are various procedures that can be completed to gain the look you desire. Procedures that may be offered in a cosmetic dentistry office include, whitening of the teeth, braces to straighten teeth, reshaping of teeth to repair cracks and chips, dental bridges to fill in areas from teeth that are missing, and veneers which are bonded directly on the teeth and can completely renew your smile.
Cosmetic crowns are tooth-colored fixtures that fit perfectly over the tooth. Dentists use such crowns for different purposes such as strengthening the tooth, changing its size, protecting it, or making it more attractive for the patient. Installation of dental crowns is easy for the dentist and the patient. The dentist places a cement on the tooth and then places the crown on top of the cement. An effective crown placement gives the visual image of a perfectly white tooth in the patient’s mouth.
Patients get dental crowns for a wide variety of reasons. Crowns can protect a chipped tooth from breaking. A crown can also support a tooth that has a large filling it. Additionally, a crown can cover up a slightly crooked or discolored tooth to restore a patient’s self-esteem. Additionally, dentists sometimes use crowns to connect dental bridges and cover up dental implants.
A person who would like to save a tooth that has been severely damaged from decay can get a crown. Crowns are the perfect saviors for those teeth that are not strong enough to maintain fillings. Patients can request metal, ceramic, or stainless steel crowns. They can be temporary solutions or permanent fixtures for anyone.

Having a smile with nice bright teeth can help improve our confidence. The smile is one of the first things people notice. A healthy smile shows that one has a friendly, feel-good attitude. However, teeth can lose their shine and become stained over time. The beverages we drink and the food we eat can stain our teeth. Tobacco products can also stain the teeth. Additionally, genetic, environmental and pharmaceutical issues can cause tooth staining.
The outer surface of the enamel will stain first. Eventually, these stains will affect the dentin. The dentin is located between the pulpy interior and hard enamel. Dentin is made up of porous living cells. It is yellow in color. This makes staining more of an issue because the enamel is translucent.
There are a variety of whitening methods that can be used in order to remove stains. Some methods are abrasive and can remove stains from the surface of the enamel. However, they may not remove stains from the dentin. Chemical methods involve using a variety of ingredients to whiten the teeth.
