Cosmetic dentistry has slowly become part of our culture. Today, many people think that cosmetic dentistry is crucial for a smile makeover. A survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) revealed that over 98 percent of adults feel that a beautiful smile is a crucial social asset. Most of these adults firmly believe that unattractive smiles can inhibit their career growth. That said, let us take a look at some of the most popular cosmetic treatments available.
Although most people do not know about them since they tend to go unnoticed, invisible braces are the preferred option by a considerable number of Americans. Patients who use them are the ones who are not comfortable with bracket braces or a mouth full of wire. There are several invisible braces variants. They include clear aligners, inside braces, and ceramic tooth-colored braces.
Most people concerned with a gummy smile that exposes excess amounts of gum tissue opt for gingival contouring. These patients may suffer from a condition known as excessive gingival display. There are several treatment options for this condition. They include gingival sculpting, maxillofacial surgery, laser treatment, orthodontics, and surgical lip repositioning. Our oral surgeons, orthodontists, and periodontists typically offer these procedures to our valued patients.
Other popular cosmetic dentistry treatment options include the installation of crowns and dental implants. Crowns, which can be ceramic porcelain, porcelain fused, or gold, help preserve how damaged teeth function. On the other hand, dental implants considered the magnum opus of cosmetic dentistry, serve as permanent solutions to lost teeth. Dental implants are artificial teeth that become fused with our jaws in a process popularly known as osseointegration.
Direct composite bonding, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers are common cosmetic treatment options among our patients. To discuss suitable cosmetic dentistry options for your condition, get in touch with our professionals, and we will gladly help you out.
