6 Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Patients Benefit from New Technology

Over the past decade, a lot of cosmetic dental procedures have become tremendously effective in treating both the appearance as well asfunction of teeth. Not only are these procedures more effective and reliable than ever before, they’re also becoming more affordable for the everyday dental patients. Here’s an overview of six treatments rising in popularity among people from all walks of life.

 

Dental Veneers

Porcelain and composite dental veneers allow people to change their entire smile. They’re strong enough to function just like normal teeth, thanks to the materials used in their construction. Patients experience non-invasive treatment and can preserve any healthy tooth structure. Some types of even require ‘no prep’ or ‘minimal prep’ for these veneers to be placed directly over your natural teeth. Advances in the materials used for dental veneers have also reduced the cost of treatment.

 

Invisalign Invisible Braces

Straightening your crooked smile no longer means wearing fixed metal braces for months on end. Invisalign orthodontics provides a comfortable and invisible option that requires few ongoing appointments over the typical 12 month wearing period. They’re perfect for busy adults and families. Invisalign treatment is just as effective as traditional braces, but without the need to limit what you eat. Not only that, but they are completely removable by the wearer, making it easier for you to care for your teeth on a day-to-day basis.

 

Dental Implants

Dental implants have dramatically transformed the smile restoration process. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, then getting an implant is the solution. Implants function the same way as a natural tooth and can be used to support multiple tooth bridges or even dentures. The materials used in dental implants are so strong that they can last longer than a real tooth. Smile by Design patients can have their complete implant therapy performed using pain-free treatment right at our office, so there’s no need to see different doctors for various stages of the treatment.

 

Porcelain or Composite Dental Crowns

Broken, chipped or badly damaged teeth can easily be restored with porcelain or composite dental crowns. The materialsused allow the crown to look as natural as possible, blending in with your smile. You won’t have to worry about the tooth looking false or not being able to hold up to normal wear and tear. Smile by Design uses only the best available lab materials, allowing our dental crowns to provide patients with a longer-lasting restorative solution than other types of treatment.
