Ways a Cosmetic Dentist Can Help People Who Have Issues with their Teeth’s Appearance

When a person feels their teeth do not look well it can often have a very negative impact on their life. Many times such a person may feel embarrassed or self conscious about their teeth and this may cause them to refrain from smiling. This can have a negative impact on a person’s personal and professional life. To help in correcting this type of situation it is a good idea to visit a Cosmetic Dentist to explore the various types of options available to help them in correcting their dental issues.

Many people today will consult with a dentist because of the color of their teeth. Often a person with dull, stained or discolored teeth will visit a dentist to obtain assistance in correcting this type of issue. There are varieties of ways a dentist can help in this situation. One of the most common types of treatments used for this type of situation is teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening is a process where the dentist will apply a professional strength whitening product to the patient’s teeth. The product will then be activated using a laser light or UV lamp. This will cause the whitening product to move into the pores of the teeth so it can reach the stains or other areas of discoloration and begin to break them apart. Once this happens, more light will be able to shine through the tooth. This will make the tooth look brighter and whiter as well.

Patients who have more severed stains or other issues with their teeth may need a more extensive type of treatment, such as dental veneers. Dental veneers are generally applied by a Cosmetic Dentist on patient’s whose teeth are misshaped, severely stained or have other imperfections. Veneers are porcelain slips, which have been designed to fit over a patient’s natural tooth. They are used to cover up any imperfections the natural tooth may have. A veneer is very thin and custom fitted to the patient’s teeth so it will feel and look natural in his or her mouth. This type of treatment can be handled in a few short visits to a dental office, such as Smiles by Dr. Shrenna Clifton. This type of treatment will last for many years and for some this can be a great option.
