Frequently Asked Questions
There are several whitening options designed to fit almost every budget. From pre-packaged take home products, to customized whitening trays for superior results, to Power Bleaching, for the whitest shade your teeth can naturally achieve. Whitening solutions even exist for people who are not typical whitening product candidates. In such cases a dentist may create a bright new smile through the use of bonding or porcelain veneers.
Cosmetic dentistry isn't always just about good looks. Many of these treatments can improve various oral problems, such as correcting your bite. They are also not necessarily restricted to the teeth. Some people encounter problems with gum pigmentation or uneven gums. Periodontal procedures exist that address these difficulties as well.
Generally, cosmetic dental procedures include whitening, bonding, crowns, veneers, and the reshaping and contouring of teeth. If you have a cosmetic concern, it is a good idea to have heart-to-heart talk with your dentist and ask lots of questions. Among them:
- What can I expect the changes will look like?
- What should I experience throughout the course of treatment?
- What type of maintenance will be required by me or by the dentist?
Television has certainly popularized cosmetic dentistry with such shows as Extreme Makeover and, at times, it can be as complex as a total smile reconstruction. At other times, cosmetic dentistry may be as simple as correcting the appearance of a single tooth. In short, it is what is right for you, what fits your budget, and makes you feel better about your smile!
