COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Cosmetic Dentistry

  • corrects the teeth imperfections or severely damaged teeth that cannot be treated with routine restorations, such as fillings.
  • involves using different technique of treatments from simple plastic Bonding to Porcelain Veneers, In-Lay/On-Lay, or Crowns as well as Orthodontics.

COMPOSITE BONDING

 

 

Composite bonding is a type of dental procedure that had been in use for many years.

 

 

  • Composites are made up of nano resin plastic particles.
  • They come in different shades to match the teeth or whitened the teeth.
  • They are soft and pliant so your dentist could sculpt the material to match different natural tooth shapes.
  • They are held onto the teeth with a special bond or glue.
  • A special visible blue light called curing light is shined onto the composite to make a hard shell, protecting the natural tooth.
  • Your dentist will polish the composite so that the shine will make the bonded tooth look natural and life-like.
  • This cost about 75% less expensive than porcelain crowns and ceramic veneers.

 

CERAMIC VENEERS

Ceramic veneers are customized dental prosthetic shells made with thin ceramic layers that are meant to cover the front of your teeth.

Although they are synthetic teeth, they appear natural and have the strength similar to your natural teeth.

Reasons to Use Ceramic Veneers 

 

  • For teeth that do not respond to common whitening treatments with chemical gels or laser, ceramic dental veneers 

 

  • Great for fixing minor gaps between front teeth, minor crowding such as overlaps and twists between the teeth, damaged teeth from decay or trauma

 

  • Ceramic veneers are resistant to coffee, cola, and cigarette smoke stains.

How Ceramic Veneers Are Made

 

 

  • First, part of the enamel from your teeth are removed to allow the proper fitting of the veneers with the rest of the teeth. 

 

  • While the final veneers are being made, your dentist will place temporary veneers to keep the other teeth from moving into the area and to allow you to maintain the esthetics of your smile.

 

  • You may experience temporary sensitivity to cold and hot while you are in the process of getting the final ceramic veneers. 

 

  • Since ceramic veneers are custom-made in professional dental laboratories to fit with the rest of the teeth in your mouth, they often take up to two weeks to finish.

 

  • Ceramic veneers are cemented onto your teeth with a very strong dental cement (dental glue). 

 

Maintaining Your Ceramic Veneers

 

  • Your ceramic veneers needs to be cleaned and maintained  just like your natural teeth. Consistently brushing twice a day with non-abrasive fluoride-containing toothpaste, and flossing daily are necessary to prevent decay.

 

  • Do not miss your 6-month cleaning visits with your dentist. Your veneers will be cleaned and checked for decay, chips, during the dental exam and cleaning.
