Maintaining the appearance of one's smile is not easy, and a lot of effort goes into its care. Factors such as the consumption of colored foods, smoking, chewing tobacco, external trauma to the mouth, malocclusion, excessive wear, etc., can make the teeth look unpleasant. Though we can do certain things at home to make our smile look better, issues such as damaged teeth, cavities, and malocclusion will require a dentist’s help to be treated properly.
We offer several cosmetic dental treatments at Brighton Family Dentistry in Salt Lake City, Utah, to help you achieve the healthy, glowing smile of your dreams. They include substituting missing teeth to improve the appearance of cosmetic dental flaws.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Your Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a blend of various cosmetic procedures planned to enhance the aesthetics of one's smile. Patients who have avoided dental treatments for many years and require extensive care to bring back their smile to the desired state can opt for cosmetic dentistry to regain the beauty of their smile. Some of the cosmetic procedures that can improve your smile include veneers, crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, gum contouring, composite bonding, dentures, and orthodontic treatment. At our office, we can conduct a comprehensive diagnosis of your teeth and determine which procedures would be suitable and recommended for you.
What Can Cosmetic Procedures Correct?
One of the simplest and most effective cosmetic procedures is teeth whitening. It helps conceal the stains and discolorations of your teeth. We use a whitening gel composed of hydrogen peroxide to correct these cosmetic issues. It consists of oxygen molecules that bleach the stains present in the porous structure of the teeth, thereby leaving the teeth looking whiter.
If your teeth have incurred damage due to oral trauma, they could break, chip, or get cracked. The central root canal cavity may be exposed in such cases, potentially leading to a root canal infection. The condition can be excruciating, as well. At our office, we could restore damaged teeth using appropriate treatments like dental crowns, veneers, or composite bonding.
Tooth-colored fillings are most often employed to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. Fillings can be customized to match the natural teeth's exact color, luster, and texture because of the composite resin or dental-grade ceramic they are composed of. They are also used to fill large grooves, restore chipped teeth, or fill the excessive gaps between adjacent teeth.
