Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry includes many procedures that improve the look of your teeth. While cosmetic dentistry procedures aren’t usually required for good dental health, they often optimize your bite and improve your teeth’s function as well.
If you’re self-conscious about crooked teeth, gaps, misshapen teeth, or dingy coloration, cosmetic dentistry solutions at Skyview Dental can help you.
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry improves your smile and generally improves your quality of life. You become less concerned about the appearance of your teeth, make better first impressions, and you're more likely to smile more.
Some cosmetic procedures also help the function of your teeth. Interventions like Invisalign® fill in gaps and balance your bite. This can reduce tension in your jaw, help you chew more effectively, and allow you to speak more clearly.
What procedures are considered cosmetic dentistry?
Skyview Dental proudly offers the following as part of their cosmetic dentistry offerings:
Veneers are super thin sheets of porcelain that fit right over your existing teeth to correct uneven, misshapen, discolored, or cracked teeth. They smooth out your smile and can even correct mild gaps and misalignments. The veneers match your natural teeth color, so they look natural but beautiful and uniform.
Teeth can discolor if you drink coffee and red wine, eat lots of berries and tomato sauce, or smoke or chew tobacco. The dinginess of a yellowing smile disappears with professional, in-office teeth whitening. You’ll notice a difference of several shades after just one appointment.
Dental crowns are like caps for your teeth. They are durable and match the color of your teeth. They effectively cover misshapen, damaged, or discolored teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are a discrete way to correct bite misalignments, minor gaps, and general crookedness. You wear plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into a cosmetically and functionally appealing position for about 20 hours out of the day but can remove them to eat, drink, and perform dental hygiene.
You change aligners once every few weeks to progressively shift your smile into a cosmetically beautiful state.
