Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures help enhance your smile and provide aesthetic benefits. Most cosmetic dentistry procedures also improve the function and health of your gums and teeth.
Thanks to modern advances in the field of cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Zahedi can address several flaws that may detract from your smile, including:
- Missing teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
What are some types of cosmetic dentistry services?
Dr. Zahedi provides a host of cosmetic dentistry services to improve your smile, including:
Implants are small metal posts Dr. Zahedi surgically inserts into your jawbone. They naturally fuse to your jawbone and support natural-looking prosthetics that replace missing teeth.
This teeth treatment system uses invisible aligners to give you a straighter smile without spending months on end being self-conscious about metal and wires in your mouth.
Crowns are porcelain caps placed on damaged teeth to provide extra protection and improve the appearance of chips, cracks, and discoloration.
A bridge is a fixed restoration, or a set of natural-looking artificial teeth, that spans a gap in your mouth. They’re made of a flesh-like, gummy base and can be bonded onto surrounding teeth or supported by implants.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Missing or damaged teeth can often affect your facial structure. One of the most significant benefits of cosmetic dentistry is it helps fill in your face and enhances your smile.
When you address imperfections in your teeth and gums, you likely experience a boost to your self-confidence. Your smile is your first impression, so don’t neglect it.
Problems like missing teeth can also develop into severe oral health problems like shifting teeth, decay, or even tooth loss. Cosmetic dentistry helps limit your risk of these types of issues while keeping you looking and feeling younger and healthier.
Are there complications associated with cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is safe and produces stunning results. However, as is the case with all procedures, cosmetic dentistry can sometimes result in unwanted side effects, such as tooth sensitivity or swelling. Typically, these problems subside quickly and cause only minimal discomfort.
