Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental services designed to create a positive change in your teeth and enhance your smile. With modern advances in the field, dentists at Hamden Dental Care can vastly improve a multitude of issues, including:
- Decayed teeth
- Teeth that underwent a root canal
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
At Hamden Dental Care, the talented team of professional dentists offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Teeth whitening is an ideal way to enhance your smile. Your dentist takes impressions of your teeth in order to custom-make clear plastic trays. You wear the trays with a special whitening solution at home to remove staining and achieve your desired level of whitening. You may need a touch up every several years, and more often if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Crowns encase the entire surface of your tooth, capping it and restoring it to its original shape and size after structural or cosmetic damage. They protect and strengthen tooth structure, and they match the appearance of your natural teeth. The team at Hamden Dental Care provides porcelain crowns and zirconia crowns, both of which are durable, long-lasting, and offer different benefits.
Veneers are thin layerings of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made for shape and color by a professional dental laboratory. Your dentist bonds them onto the front of your teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in extending the life of your new veneers.
Composite fillings repair a tooth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. Your dentist removes the affected portion of the tooth, then fills it with a composite filling that matches the appearance of natural teeth. Composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. But they are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
When chips, cracks, or decay affect your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile and help boost your self-confidence. Beyond the cosmetic benefits, structural problems to your teeth that impact your appearance can also prove damaging to your oral health. Complications like crooked teeth or gaps in your smile can affect surrounding teeth, increasing your risk of periodontal and gum disease.
