Dental problems happen, particularly as we age. If you maintain good dental health care and hygiene, you’ll experience fewer problems than if you let your oral health decline. But when dental problems occur, cosmetic dentistry provides options for returning your more youthful appearance.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is professional dental treatment focused on improving the naturally healthy appearance of your teeth, smile, and mouth. You choose to undergo most of these procedures for a better appearance. But many aid in the restoration of damaged teeth and help you build confidence with a healthy-looking, youthful and bright smile.
Badr Dental performs many cosmetic dental procedures. Most of these provide simple and straightforward improvements. But some require a higher level of quality dentistry and experience through specialized care.
Teeth Whitening in Pearland, TX
Cosmetic dentistry requests usually start with teeth whitening services. Teeth whitening takes place in the dentist’s office after a professional dental cleaning. Your teeth undergo safe bleaching for a whiter, brighter appearance. In fact, your teeth can look whiter than when they first emerged!
People choose teeth whitening because over time your teeth experience staining and wear from the foods you eat and beverages you drink. Medication also discolors teeth, as do personal habits like smoking or chewing tobacco. In your dentist’s office, the whitening solution coats your teeth, giving you a brighter smile in just one visit. Your dentist also offers an at-home teeth whitening kit that provides better results than store-bought options.
Inlays and Onlays for Your Healthier Looking Smile
Inlays and onlays made by a dental lab cover mild to moderate decay on your teeth or improve your tooth’s appearance, strength, and durability. These dental treatments give your teeth a natural-looking surface. The dental lab makes them using composite resin, tooth-colored material. They attach to your tooth using a special dental cement, quickly and easily restoring your tooth’s shape while preventing further decay.
Dental Veneers, Laminates, and Lumineers
Dental veneers and laminates made of medical-grade ceramic provide custom-fitted improvement for individual teeth. The brand of veneers most people recognize is Lumineers, the highest quality option for dental veneers. Regardless of which veneers your dentist uses for your teeth, the new tooth surface matches surrounding teeth for a natural appearance, thanks to cosmetic dentistry at Badr Dental.
Veneers look very realistic, and no one detects them upon seeing your smile. You receive custom-fitted veneers that hide many types of cosmetic problems. Veneers work well for crooked, cracked, damaged and stained teeth. They also help you gain a straighter, more complete looking smile when you have gaps in your teeth.
Veneers apply to the front of your tooth with special dental cement. Before placing the veneer, the dentist prepares your tooth by filing it down to remove a small portion of its surface and mass. This makes room for the veneer to adhere flush to your other teeth’s natural surfaces.
Porcelain crowns work much like veneers to return a healthier, more natural appearance to individual teeth. But veneers only cover the front of your teeth. Crowns fit over your tooth like a cap, covering all sides and the chewing surface. They provide strength and resilience for heavily damaged teeth unable to otherwise remain in place.
Before porcelain crowns and other dental services, many people had teeth extracted when their teeth became too weak to support chewing. But today’s cosmetic dentistry options like crowns help you have a healthier looking, stronger and natural looking tooth for many years.
