3 of the Most Popular Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures

cosmetic dentistSure, cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the bright, straight smile you’ve always deserved, but how? What services can cosmetic dentists provide that can fix whatever issue you may have?

Wonder no more — here are just a few of the most amazing treatments cosmetic dentists can provide.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures cosmetic dentists perform. Though there are at-home kits you can use to make your teeth whiter, cosmetic dentists have dramatically more effective results. In-office procedures generally get teeth to be three to eight shades whiter.

Bonding
Bonding is a procedure that can improve the way your teeth look if there’s excess space between them, or if they’ve been chipped, stained, or cracked over the years. Cosmetic dentists use bonding materials to fill small cavities or to protect an exposed root by applying an etching solution followed by tooth-colored materials. The effects of bonding can last for several years, but unfortunately, it’s more likely than other types of procedures to chip or become stained or even just wear down.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are exactly what they sound like: they’re teeth implants. Dental implants replace missing teeth’s roots with titanium anchors that provide strong, sturdy foundations. These dental prosthetic provide the feel, function, and appearance of natural teeth, and have a high success rate. Research shows that dental implants have a reported success rate of 98%, in fact.

Your smile matters. Surveys show that virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a healthy smile is socially important, that 96% believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex, and that 74% feel an unattractive smile can hurt their career success. Let cosmetic dentists help you achieve the smile you deserve.
