Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your teeth and oral aesthetics. These procedures mostly focus on enhancing the visual appeal of your smile and teeth. The cosmetic dental procedures that we perform in our Anderson Family Dental clinic in Milwaukie, OR address common aesthetic concerns such as cracks, misalignment, discoloration, and more.
Your teeth can lose their natural white hue due to several reasons. Mostly, stained or discolored teeth are due to prolonged tobacco use or exposure to high fluoride levels. Medications and consumption of some foods and drinks, such as coffee, can cause teeth staining. You can consider teeth whitening to eliminate such stains and ensure your teeth have a whiter color for a brighter smile.
Teeth whitening uses products containing hydrogen peroxide or charcoal to brighten teeth. You can also purchase whitening toothpaste, over-the-counter products, or gel to perform the procedure at home.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.
Dental veneers are custom-made shells attached to the front surfaces of your teeth. These shells help to conceal any imperfections that may exist on your teeth. They enhance the appearance of your teeth and correct teeth problems such as misalignment, chipped, or gaps in your teeth.
Dental bonding is a popular dental procedure that involves the application of a resin material on your teeth. It helps to enhance your oral aesthetics by concealing common imperfections on your teeth. The cosmetic procedure is quick and cost-effective and gives you optimum results.
We must ensure we select a resin material that matches with the color of your teeth. Before attaching the resin material, we first roughen and prepare your teeth. We then place the resin material on your tooth and shape it for the best appearance. Once confident the bonding material is hardened, we trim and shape it further to make it appear as natural as possible.
The main aim of cosmetic dentistry is to ensure you look beautiful and confident. It helps conceal defects such as misalignment, discoloration, chipping, or missing teeth.
