Title: 5 Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Methods

5 Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Methods
Dr. Joe Stucky, DDS Soft Touch Dental

Cosmetic dentistry is a method of professional
oral care that focuses on improving the
appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile. Some
cases of treatment also provide restorative
benefits. The most common procedures used in
cosmetic dentistry are quite simple, whereas
others are more complex and require specialized
care.
3
Inlays and Onlays These are also known as
indirect fillings, which are made by a dental
laboratory, and they are used when a tooth has
mild to moderate decay or there is not enough
tooth structure to support a filling. 
4
The inlay is placed directly onto the tooth
surface. When the cusp or a greater portion of
the tooth is damaged, however, an onlay is used
instead to cover the tooth's entire
surface. Inlays and onlays are made in a dental
laboratory from composite resin material and
attached to the teeth with adhesive dental
cement. They provide support to strengthen teeth,
restore their shape and avoid any further decay
or deterioration.
5
Composite Bonding Composite bonding refers to
the repair of decayed, damaged or discolored
teeth using material that resembles the color of
tooth enamel. Your dentist drills out the tooth
decay and applies the composite onto the tooth's
surface, then "sculpts" it into the right shape
before curing it with a high-intensity light. 
6
 This effectively covers the damage to the tooth
and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in
its place. Bonding is one of the least expensive
cosmetic dentistry procedures available to
patients with tooth decay, chipped or cracked
teeth and worn-down edges.
7
Dental Veneers Typically manufactured from
medical-grade ceramic, dental veneers are made
individually for each patient to resemble one's
natural teeth.
8
They look exceptionally realistic and can resolve
numerous cosmetic problems, ranging from crooked
teeth, to cracked or damaged enamel to noticeable
gaps between two teeth. The dentist applies the
veneer to the front of each tooth using a dental
adhesive.
9
Teeth Whitening One of the most basic cosmetic
dentistry procedures, teeth whitening or teeth
bleaching can be performed at your dentist's
office. Whitening should occur after plaque,
tartar and other debris are cleaned from the
surface of each tooth, restoring their natural
appearance. Teeth can also be bleached to achieve
an even lighter shade than this original color
10
Implants Dental implants are used to replace
teeth after tooth loss. The dentist inserts a
small titanium screw into the jaw at the site of
the missing tooth, which serves as the support
for a crown. These implants are almost
indistinguishable from the surrounding natural
teeth, and once the bone and supporting tissue
fuse to the implant, they are permanently secured
into place.
