Young or old, your smile is one of your biggest assets; teeth that are discolored, chipped; misaligned, etc have a significant impact on the way others perceive you. Imperfect teeth not only affect your appearance, they can also have a detrimental impact on the way you speak and eat and can be at the root of serious dental concerns.
What are cosmetic dentists?
As well as restoring the function of your teeth, Chicago cosmetic dentists also employ a number of unique techniques to enhance your smile and overall appearance. Even teeth that are free from decay and in good condition can eventually stain; tooth whitening is one of the most common treatments. Other patients require a complete smile makeover which may include dental implants, crowns or porcelain veneers.
What can cosmetic dentists do for you?
There are numerous techniques that cosmetics have at their disposal that; in their hands, give your smile a much needed boost:
* Dental implants: Although dentures and bridges are still used extensively when it is necessary to replace one or more missing teeth, many patients today are opting for a dental implant. A dental implant consists of a small titanium peg, embedded directly into the jaw bone, this acts as a replacement root for a crown. Once completed the implant looks, feels and functions just like the natural tooth it replaced.
* Teeth whitening: Although there are OTC teeth whitening kits, having your teeth whitened by Chicago cosmetic dentists is faster and safer. Teeth whitening is extremely popular; it can result in a remarkable difference in whiteness and brightness in a single visit.
* Veneers: Over the year’s teeth take quite a beating; it is not unusual for small surface cracks, serious discoloration and chipped edges to appear. Through the use of an extremely thin porcelain cover, cosmetic dentists can cover the damage, greatly enhancing your appearance.
These are but three of the many procedures that can be carried out by cosmetic dentists; to improve your appearance and confidence consult your Chicago cosmetic dentists.
