Cosmetic dentists are highly trained professionals who can provide teeth whitening, veneers, dental bridges, crowns, tooth whitening, cosmetic dentures, orthodontic braces, gum lifts, orthodontic implants, lumineers, crowns, and various other cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic dentistry can be divided into two major categories; aesthetic dentistry and corrective dentistry. Aesthetics involve the beauty of a person’s teeth and their overall look. The main goal of aesthetic dentistry is to enhance the aesthetics of the teeth without changing the underlying structure of the tooth.Learn more about us at Kessler Dental Associates-Cosmetic Dentist
Corrective dentists usually focus on the function and maintenance of the teeth and their strength. Cosmetic dentists usually work on the visual appearance only. There are also some cosmetic dentists who combine both practices in order to help patients achieve better oral health while looking beautiful. Most patients choose to undergo these procedures at a dentist office as it is a more convenient option for them.
A cosmetic dentist uses different methods in order to provide patients with improved oral health. Some of these techniques are bonding, veneers, gum grafts and composite resin bonding. Bonding is done by applying thin layers of composite resin to damaged or chipped teeth. Gum grafts are used for those people who need to replace missing teeth and gum grafts are used when a patient has too many damaged or broken teeth. Composite resin bonding is a procedure that uses a hard material, like dental acrylic, to build a strong bond between the base material and the tooth or teeth being treated.
