What can cosmetic dentistry do for me?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses more on the aesthetic side of dentistry than improving the teeth’s functionality. If you have a smile you feel could be improved, your cosmetic dentist can help. Cosmetic dentistry is extremely versatile and includes anything from repairing chipped teeth to giving your teeth a whole new look with dental veneers. Your Rigby dentist can help you determine which cosmetic dentistry procedures are best for you and your mouth.
Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures in Rigby, ID
- Teeth whitening: If your smile is dull or stained, teeth whitening may be for you. Providing big results in only about an hour’s time, teeth whitening is an effective and, compared to some other procedures, simple way to breathe new life into your smile.
- Veneers: Dental veneers mask your teeth to give them a whole new look. Carved from a block of ceramic, dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain which your dentist affixes to the surfaces of your teeth. These restorations can permanently hide stubborn stains, fill small gaps, adjust the teeth’s alignment, or even correct teeth length to even out your smile.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are a permanent, effective, and functional option to replace your missing tooth or teeth. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants also replace your tooth’s root, providing the bone in which it lies the proper stimulation to stay healthy, preventing bone atrophy.
- Bonding: Dental bonding is an option for teeth which have small imperfections or abnormalities. Bonding is great for teeth which have small chips. During the procedure, composite resin placed directly onto the tooth allows your dentist to mold the material into the proper shape for your tooth.
