Cosmetic dentistry involves dental treatments designed to enhance the beauty of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry goes beyond smile improvements, though. Some cosmetic services also contribute to your overall oral health while also increasing your self-confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry includes fixing common tooth imperfections including:
You can also fix slightly misaligned or uneven teeth with cosmetic dentistry, but you’ll need orthodontics to fix severely crooked or crowded teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry services are ideal for people with healthy teeth and gums. If you require restorations or have any oral health problems, Franklin Square Dental works with you to fix them and restore gum health before cosmetic services begin.
There are a variety of ways Franklin Square Dental can transform your smile, including:
Veneers involve placing a thin piece of porcelain over the front of your teeth to provide a solution for gaps between teeth, discolored teeth, and slightly crooked teeth. Veneers offer a dramatic change in the overall appearance of your smile.
Dental crowns provide a solution to save severely damaged, cracked, or decayed teeth that may otherwise require extraction. Natural-looking restorative caps are fitted to your teeth to restore their appearance and function. Additionally, crowns can provide protection from further damage and teeth grinding.
Dental bridges offer a solution for a missing tooth. They “bridge” the gap between your existing teeth and fill in the space with a crown anchored to the teeth on either side of the prosthetic tooth. You can also support a bridge between dental implants.
Invisalign offers a metal-free, non-invasive solution to fix minor tooth crowding and spacing issues. They are clear and removable dental aligners that reposition your teeth into proper placement, not only improving your appearance but reducing wear on teeth and improving your ability to clean them.
Orthodontics is a dentistry specialty that corrects teeth and jaw irregularities, especially how they fit together. While orthodontic treatments to align your teeth improve the aesthetics of your smile, they also lower your risk for dental problems because properly aligned teeth are easier to clean.
In addition to fixing crooked teeth or misaligned teeth, orthodontics can correct overbite, underbite, open bites, and crossbites.
If aesthetic flaws in your teeth cause you to smile less, cosmetic dentistry from Franklin Square Dental can help. Find out how you can increase confidence in your smile by calling the practice or scheduling an appointment online today.
