Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted .

Over the past few years, cosmetic dentistry has become one of the most popular ways to improve one’s appearance. This is because of the myriad of options a person can choose from to improve their smile. Cosmetic dentistry can allow you do just about anything from whitening your smile to even reshaping the gum line to fill in spaces between your teeth!

If you’re looking to replace a lost tooth, dental implants may be the way to go. Many Americans over 30 have lost teeth, and are choosing dental implants as replacements. This is because unlike dentures, dental implants look, act, and feel just like your normal teeth. In addition, implants offer more comfort compared to dentures and also will last the wearer longer.

People who have had fillings in the past ten years in one of their prominent teeth know how smiling can be made awkward. It may seem like people are looking at the little black filling or your discolored tooth. Thankfully, due to improvements in dental technology, you can replace the old filing and restore the whiteness back to discolored teeth by having a tooth-colored filling put it. A tooth colored filling will be sure to match your other teeth so it can blend it seamlessly, restoring your confidence when smiling.
