Cosmetic dentistry is any type of dental treatment that is concerned primarily with the appearance of the teeth. Many people hear the term ‘cosmetic dentistry’ and automatically think braces, because straightening crooked teeth is one way a dentist can help you love your smile more. However, there are many other types of cosmetic dental treatments available in the South Shore, including:
Tooth Whitening: Are your teeth yellow, brown, or otherwise discolored due to smoking, coffee, red wine, prescription medication use, or other cause? Your South Shore dentist has a range of tooth whitening treatments available, including a brush on treatment that provides stunning same day results, as well as the use of veneers.
Dental Implants: If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the smart, efficient way to fill the gaps in your smile. Dental implants can also improve the experience of eating and make it easier for others to understand you when you’re speaking. Many people who are missing teeth are self-conscious about that fact. Having your South Shore dentist put dental implants in can bring your confidence back. In instances where more than a few teeth are missing, dental bridges or dentures may be used.
Tooth Contouring: Used to treat chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, tooth contouring results in an aesthetically pleasing, regular smile. Tooth contouring can be used to address jagged or pointy teeth, or if you have teeth that are of dramatically different heights. Crowns are also sometimes used to address uneven tooth heights or to regulate the smile.
