Cosmetic dentistry is professional dental work used to restore the appearance of mouths, teeth, and smiles. Cosmetic dentistry is performed more for the art of dentistry than for any scientific reasons.
In cosmetic dentistry, the following dental materials and procedures are used for tooth and gum care:
- Teeth whitening
- Composite bonding
- Inlays and onlays
- Tooth-Colored fillings
- Clear orthodontic aligners
- Cosmetic gum surgery
- Tooth positioning
- Porcelain and composite veneers
- Porcelain crowns
- Tooth contouring and reshaping
- Gum grafts and implants
All cosmetic dentistry treatments can restore the function, appearance, and development of an individual’s teeth. The best thing is to have regular dental checkups and professional cleanings.
CERTAIN CONDITIONS DURING ADULTHOOD:
Gum disease: If regular dental cleanings, brushing, and flossing have been skipped, bacterial plaque and tartar will build up on your teeth. When these are left untreated, they may cause irreparable harm to your jawbone and supporting structures and ultimately lead to tooth loss.
Oral cancer: Some people get diagnosed with cancer of the mouth, tongue, or throat areas. The use of alcohol and tobacco increases the threat of oral cancer. During a routine checkup, these conditions can be diagnosed initially by a dentist.
Break down of the dental fillings: The expected life of a filling is from eight to 10 years; however, they can last longer. When the fillings start to break, food and bacteria can get under them, which can cause deep decay in the tooth. Proper oral health routines can keep teeth clean.
Cosmetic Consultation: In a cosmetic consultation, a dentist will give you some general guidelines. Aesthetic problems such as discolored or missing teeth can point to underlying health issues. Once the dentist thoroughly understands the problem, he or she can explain your treatment options and plan a course of action.
