Where restoring the appearance of pearly whites is concerned, this is usually in the field of aesthetic dentistry. While its name may suggest that cosmetic dentistry is solely for vanity purposes, this is far from the truth as aesthetic dentistry may also touch on dental work that improves functionality of teeth.
Whether you have cracked teeth, unsightly stains on them, or a missing a tooth, aesthetic dentistry can bring back that once radiant smile. Here are the top three treatments in aesthetic dentistry that patients can greatly benefit from:
1. Teeth whitening – There are various products for teeth whitening in the market such as gels and creams, but these can be a waste of one’s money. Instead of resorting to guesswork and unproven do-it-yourself whitening methods like rinsing on acidic food, consult your dentist about teeth whitening. You may even be surprised to hear that your teeth are already white enough and any shade lighter may lead to an artificial-looking appearance. Teeth whitening treatment at Audubon Dental Center is quick, comfortable, and highly effective. We use professional-grade Zoom Whitening technology for stunning results with a single application.
2. Dental implants – Contrary to popular belief, aging is not the primary cause of tooth loss, but rather periodontal disease. It’s natural to feel embarrassed about having missing teeth, which is what dental implants are for. Whether it’s a single tooth implant, a bridge, or implant-supported dentures you need, you can soon smile widely and with confidence after your dentist has installed dental implants. Here at Audubon Dental Center, we can install artificial tooth roots, replace missing teeth, and reconstruct soft tissues at our clinic.
3. Dental crowns – When a damaged or decaying tooth can still be saved, your dentist will most likely turn to dental crowns. Your dentist will first clean the tooth, remove the decayed parts and then place a crown to cover the remaining structure of the tooth. This is needed to prevent further damage on the tooth. Aside from protection, dental crowns can also improve the appearance of teeth, by having a color or shade that matches the rest of your natural teeth.
Whether you’re a young professional in a client-facing industry, or a stay-at-home parent, you can greatly benefit from our range of aesthetic dentistry treatments.
