As cosmetic dentistry plymouth technologies advance, the ability to achieve a better, brighter smile is more accessible than ever before. There are several procedures available to help correct common cosmetic defects in teeth.  

Here are several current trends in cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Bonding

Bonding is a dental treatment that helps preserve and repair the look of a person’s tooth. For example, if someone has any broken or chipped teeth, a cosmetic dentist may use dental bonding to treat the issue. Dentists can use composite bonding to sustain both the functionality and the aesthetic of the tooth. This painless procedure uses a composite material that mimics the enamel of teeth to return your smile to a more visually pleasing state.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth can become stained by everyday activities, such as drinking tea, coffee, or wine. Even if you brush and floss properly and consistently, these beverages can still discolor your teeth. Smoking is another common activity that can stain teeth. Cosmetic dentistry uses bleach to whiten the teeth and can be applied using a bleaching tray. A dentist can perform teeth whitening procedures and can give you tips on what foods and drinks to avoid.

Dental Veneers

Also, teeth whitening and dental bonding is a great solution for some, not everyone’s teeth can withstand those treatments. Dental veneers are another great option for patients looking for a cosmetic procedure to improve their smile. Especially if that patient has very sensitive teeth. A dentist will attach porcelain veneers to a patient’s teeth to hide discoloration or gaps. Veneers can also correct the appearance of crooked teeth.

Gum Contouring

Gum reshaping (or gum contouring) is a way to make teeth seem more proportionate. This procedure is great for patients with a gummy smile, and can even improve the health of your teeth and gums.

No matter what you would like to improve your smile, there is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help to correct it and give you confidence in your smile.
