What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Dental science has two major roles, first is to ensure that the patients have a healthy mouth with healthy gums and the other role is to ensure that every patient has a beautiful smile. Most patients confuse cosmetic dentistry to be limited to veneers and laminates while cosmetic dental science is a really big domain. A large number of patients undergo cosmetic dental treatment without being aware of it being a cosmetic procedure. Here is a list of some of the cosmetic dental procedures available at Albany County Dental Associates.

Laser Teeth Whitening Teeth Whitening is a simple process in which the deposited plaque and tartar is removed from the teeth to restore its original color. In many cases, where the teeth lose their original shade, laser teeth whitening process (sometimes know as bleaching) is done to give them a brighter appearance.
Contouring! Tooth Reshaping There are patients who have minor defects in their tooth which can be corrected by removal of a portion of enamel. Tooth reshaping is the process by which the enamel or the outer layer of the tooth is reduced in order to give a perfect shape to the tooth. 
Bonding Patients who have gap between their teeth or have a few mildly damaged teeth are given a bonding treatment in which the blank spaces are filled with a special material which is hardened using a special light. The painless procedure ensures that there is no gap between the teeth and the jawline looks beautiful.
Bridges When a tooth or a few teeth are missing between two healthy teeth,  a dental bridge is planted using these teeth as the foundation. A dental bridge is a set of a few teeth, used to fill a gap or a space where a tooth or group teeth are missing between them. Dental bridge is a common and necessary procedure as it will not only enhance the smile of a person and restore function. Dental bridge or an alternative is a necessary  procedure to maintaining the health of all other teeth in the mouth. 
Veneers A thin layer of porcelain or any similar material is fixed on the front surface of a healthy teeth to give it a perfect esthetic appearance and function. A veneer is used to give a regular shape and a perfect jawline to patients who have less than perfect teeth. Dental Veneers are very popular among celebrities in Hollywood, as they often provide the best and perfect smile
Dental Implants A surgical procedure to plant an artificial titanium root in place of a missing tooth on which a crown or a bridge is placed in order to fill in the missing teeth of the jawline. Dental implants have revolutionized cosmetic dental treatments as one cannot distinguish between a real teeth and an implant without professional expertise.
Tooth Colored Filings There are patients who have irregular tooth or partially broken tooth. For such patients tooth colored filings are a great treatment using which the teeth are adjusted for size, color or shape. Tooth colored filings help in giving a consistent appearance to the entire jawline with no differentiation in color.
Smile Makeovers Smile makeovers are dental procedure that use more than one of the above given procedures to give the patient a perfect smile. Smile makeover is a multistage process in which the jawline is adjusted or perfected using multiple procedures to give it a perfect appearance.
