Cosmetic dentistry at Sims Dentistry of Louisville can make your teeth shine as they never have before. There is so much cosmetic dentistry can do for your teeth that it is difficult to name every procedure, but here are just a few cosmetic procedures and treatments that can make your smile even more beautiful.
These are fillings that are used when teeth do not have enough structure for a filling to be supported. Inlays are placed onto the surface of teeth to cover the area. Onlays are used when the entire tooth must be covered, keeping it protected from further decay and damage. They are made of composite resin and can be used to restore shape to teeth and prevent them from deteriorating.
Bonding means to repair teeth that have been damaged or discolored due to various factors. Composite resin is used to sculpt the tooth into the right shape, and a curing light is used to harden the material so that it stays on the tooth. It is used to cover teeth and fill in decay, chips, and cracks. It can even be used on teeth that have the edges worn down.
Veneers are bonded to the front surface of teeth so that they appear more aesthetically pleasing in the mouth. They are made to look like natural teeth and can help solve various issues with teeth. Teeth that are crooked or damaged in some way can benefit from the introduction of dental veneers.
Teeth can be whitened either at home or in your dentist’s office. At-home kits are likely to be less effective than dental procedures, but over time your results will be magnificent. Dental whitening produces immediate results, so your brightened teeth can be seen as soon as you leave the office. Whitening teeth is safe and does not damage teeth unless the solution is left on teeth for too long.
