The Most Popular Cosmetic Dental Treatments For Sparkling Teeth
You can find today a variety of treatments that a qualified cosmetic dentist can perform to bring out the brilliance of your pearly whites.
With regard to whitening of dull or tarnished teeth, bleaching might be the most beneficial treatment. The bleaching procedure starts by obtaining an impression of your teeth and producing an imitation of them from it. With this imitation, a fine transparent tray is fashioned, which will be filled with a bleaching paste and implanted directly onto your teeth. The paste-filled tray can be worn in the mouth for several hours each day or at nighttime while you are in bed. Increasing effects can be noticed every day. To receive the most dramatic results, many individuals should use the bleaching tray for up to two weeks. Moreover, the speed at which whitening effects manifest are influenced by the bleaching power of the paste used.
Should the enamel of your teeth become broken, cracked or corroded, artificial composite resins that are attached to your teeth by using a light gun can be the perfect answer. After your teeth are completely cleaned and an imprint is taken, a translucent paste is added to the spot that must be bonded. Following the glue application, a white bonding material will be applied to your tooth. After that it permanently attaches itself to the tooth by use of a compact light gun in a method referred to as photo curing. Tooth bonding provides a durable filling for small cavities or damaged tooth enamel, and can also be applied to fill in spaces between the teeth. It may even be employed to cover up the entire outside surface of a tooth in order to completely transform its coloring and look. Notwithstanding its usefulness, bonding has some restrictions and may not be sufficiently durable or cosmetic for all situations. In some more severe cases of damage, porcelain veneers may be a better option.
Occasionally the demands of aesthetic modifications of the teeth can’t be satisfied by bonding alone, which is typically when porcelain laminates are suggested. Porcelain laminates (often called veneers) can thoroughly change the look of your teeth. Porcelain laminates are generally quick, painless and extremely effective treatment options for cosmetic problems. They will alter the coloring, form and size of your teeth or any combination of those factors. They can even be considered as an alternative to orthodontic treatment. Porcelain laminates may be implanted over the course of multiple dentist visits rather than at one time. The technique entails first shaving off a super thin layer of the outer tooth. An impression will then be attained of your teeth and taken to an orthodontic laboratory, where a ceramist produces small porcelain veneers that incorporate the corrections in tooth color and proportions that are needed to enhance your smile. During your next appointment, the veneers are permanently affixed to your teeth using a light gun. The bonding element functions as a kind of adhesive for the laminates. Porcelain laminates usually are the best method for completely reconstructing the look of your teeth.
In the event that laminates are not practical owing to insufficient tooth structure being present, a more effective repair is needed, which typically means capping your teeth with porcelain crowns. Genuine porcelain crowns are implanted onto a fully prepared tooth and are generally thought to be the most organic and natural-looking of all crown replacements. The operation consists of generating a tooth imprint which is taken to an orthodontic laboratory so that a porcelain crown may be constructed. The crowns are placed inside of your mouth and permanently cemented onto your teeth. Occasionally pure porcelain caps are not suitable. In the event that biting pressure is too tough for pure porcelain caps or there are significant gaps between your teeth that must be filled, a metal alloy such as chromium or gold is needed underneath the porcelain to provide strength and durability.
