Cosmetic Dentistry Today – Staying Ahead of the Technology Curve
While Family or Restorative dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, Cosmetic Dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s smile. So Restorative Dentistry, and Family Dentistry address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas Cosmetic Dentistry provides elective treatments or services.
To provide our patients with the best that dentistry has to offer, Banyan Dental is consistently on the leading edge of modern dental techniques and materials. One of the fastest advancements in dentistry is natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials that make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. These materials make more conservative cosmetic dentistry techniques possible which preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Smile Makeovers involve a comprehensive assessment of your smiles esthetics and your desires, in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures will be implemented, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
While a Smile Makeover to primarily improve the esthetic appearance of your smile, we may discover that there is a need to provide necessary treatment to correct diseased teeth or bone structure.
Inlays and onlays are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, however, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory before being fitted and bonded into place.
Chipped, broken, or decayed teeth can have their appearance corrected using a procedure called composite bonding. A dental material with the look of enamel is applied onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, and hardened with a high-intensity curing-light.
Teeth whitening is perhaps our most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Bleaching the teeth eliminates stains and enhance the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain laminates that are bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct damage will improve a poor tooth appearance or discoloration.
Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a way to replace a missing tooth. After the implant is placed into the bone, a Dental Crown is placed on the implant to replace the missing tooth.
