186932212-300x223As the world of dentistry is constantly changing, cosmetic dentistry has risen to become one of the most popular types of dental exploration. With a wide range of procedures offered throughout cosmetic dentistry, cosmetic dentists everywhere aim to help individuals transform their smiles. Before deciding to undergo any cosmetic procedure, it is important to know the benefits and risks and what you can expect during each process.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth have the tendency to pick up stains and discoloration. Smoking, taking certain medications, or consuming foods or beverages such as coffee and tea can all contribute to the process. If you are looking for a solution to this issue, consider teeth whitening. While you are able to go out and buy at home whitening kits over the counter, keep in mind that there is no process more effective or efficient than the one your dentist can offer you in office.

Bonding

Bonding may improve how your teeth look if they have excess space between them, or if they are chipped, broken, stained, or cracked.

Veneers

Veneers are custom shells of thin porcelain that are attached to the front of teeth to improve spacing issues, chips or cracks, permanent stains, poorly shaped teeth, or slightly crooked teeth.

Crowns

Crowns completely cover a tooth, restoring a normal shape and appearance.
