Cosmetic dentistry could be just what you need if your reflection is making you unhappy. When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Julie Storm from Timberview Dentistry, your teeth and gums will be examined to determine what cosmetic dentistry procedures would be best for you.
What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures are Available?
According to your dentist in Midwest City, several cosmetic dentistry procedures are available that include porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, professional teeth whitening, cosmetic dental crowns, and clear braces.
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of dental porcelain designed to fit over the fronts of your teeth. Because a small portion of enamel is removed to make way for your natural looking veneers, the procedure is permanent.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is applied directly to crooked, chipped, or cracked teeth. Using a colored dental resin or plastic, the procedure is not as strong as porcelain veneers, but is more affordable. Unlike veneers, which can take up to three dental appointments, cosmetic dental bonding can be done in a single office visit.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Although professional teeth whitening will not work on teeth that have been previously restored, it will work wonders for natural teeth. Done in office in a single visit or using custom-made whitening trays, your teeth can be lightened up to 10 shades. Ask Dr. Storm if you are a good fit for professional tooth whitening.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Used for larger restoration purposes, cosmetic dental crowns take two visits, as you will need to wear a temporary dental crown while your new permanent crown is being made. Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain and metal or metal.
Clear Braces and Cosmetic Dentistry
Invisalign is the clear choice and a great alternative to old school wires and brackets. Using a series of aligners, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into position and can take less time than conventional braces, which can take up to two years.
