What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to transform your smile into one that is more aesthetically appealing and healthy. To improve the appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry includes treatments such as dental implants, veneers, crowns, and whitening. These services will not only create a smile that you look and feel better with, but also improve your overall dental health.
What Are The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to enhance your smile through filling any gaps, removing discoloration, or correcting chips and cracks. By improving these aspects of your teeth, the chances of infection and bacteria growth decrease, leaving you with a healthier smile. A more appealing smile also boosts your confidence and leads to better first impressions, which is proven to improve your relationships and increase your success.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an appliance that looks like a tooth, and is used to fill any gaps in your smile from missing teeth. The implant consists of a metal post and a ceramic crown made to look like the missing tooth. By customizing the color and size of the crown, it is created to look natural and appear the same as the tooth being replaced. The post is set in the jaw bone, which prevents the surrounding teeth from shifting and reduces the risk of joint damage. Implants are a permanent appliance, however the crowns can be replaced if necessary.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells applied directly to the surface of teeth, which can be used to hide stains, cracks, crookedness, or other imperfections. An impression of your teeth will be made and the porcelain used in the appliance is color-matched to the surrounding teeth, meaning the veneers will appear natural and fit perfectly. Veneers are durable and stain-resistant, so you will not have to worry about gaining scratches, chips, or stains with wear. Since veneers are applied to each individual tooth, you also have the choice between singular veneers or a full veneer set, both of which will produce a completely new and improved smile.
What Are Crowns?
A dental crown is an appliance that covers an entire tooth and is made to match the appearance of surrounding teeth. Crowns can be beneficial cosmetically, by covering any stains, discoloration, chips, or fillings, as well as improving dental health through restoring decayed teeth, protecting teeth weakened by root canals, and acting as anchors for dental bridges.
What Is Whitening With Zoom?
At Academy Dental, we use a whitening treatment called Zoom. The Zoom whitening process consists of Dr. Thind applying a whitening gel onto your teeth, which is then combined with the Zoom light to achieve the best results. The entire session takes less than an hour and always creates amazing results. The peroxide in the gel breaks up any stains on your teeth, removing discoloration and leaving you with a whiter and brighter smile. Because the treatment will occur in the professional environment of Academy Dental, the Zoom whitening process is completely safe.
To determine which type of treatment will be best for you, contact the office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thind.
