The Five Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures That Will Improve Your Smile

These procedures can have a remarkable impact on your smile and significantly improve your confidence. Speak to Dr. Fatima Afshar at Grayslake Dental Care in Grayslake, IL, about cosmetic dentistry if you would like to discuss your options in-depth. 

Cosmetic Bonding

This procedure is best for individuals who need small, minor repairs. 

Dental bonding uses a resin that bonds to your teeth to correct chips and cracks. It is inexpensive and can be completed in one office visit if you only need one tooth repaired. No anesthesia is required, and aftercare is minimal. This procedure will reduce the hot and cold sensitivities you may have. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. In the past, dentures were the only option, but now implants are quickly becoming more popular. A dental implant acts as a natural tooth. It is implanted directly into the jaw, just as your other teeth’ roots are naturally. Once the implant is inserted, and the jaw bone has a chance to regenerate and anchor the implant, a crown may be attached. This crown looks just like your natural teeth and is permanently inserted, meaning it can be treated as any other tooth. 

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are commonly used to correct damaged or severely stained teeth. Veneers are natural-looking and can fill in gaps, chips, cracks, or stained teeth. Porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than other veneer options, making them a popular choice amongst patients and dentists alike. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Just as implants can support one crown (one singular tooth look-alike), they can also hold dentures. While traditional dentures rest directly on your gums for support, implant-supported dentures are durable and stable because they snap onto implants that are rooted into your jawbone. 

These dentures will never fall out and are much easier to speak with than traditional dentures. 

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure offered. It is quick, affordable, and yields stunning bright white results. You can have your teeth whitened in-office or get an at-home system that lasts slightly longer.
