It’s amazing how linked self-esteem and confidence are to your smile and the way that you perceive it and think that others see it. When you smile, they say that the whole world smiles with you, but problems with your dental health can lead you to not having the confidence to smile in the first place.
If you have experienced problems with your teeth in the past either due to an accident, through tooth decay, or even from gum disease, and you have had sustained damage to your teeth or had to have them completely removed, then this can knock your confidence.
You may not have had any of these problems though to feel unhappy with your teeth. Sometimes if your teeth are discolored, it can make you wish that they were brighter and whiter.
There is no need to hide your smile away though, as you can enjoy the benefits of cosmetic dentistry at Seven Star Dental in Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry gives your smile a makeover. There are a number of different types of cosmetic dentistry options that are open to you, and your first step in deciding which procedures might be for you will be to make an appointment with a Cincinnati cosmetic dentistry practice at Seven Star Dental to discuss the options best suited to your needs.
What Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Are Available At Seven Star Dental?
There are a number of different types of teeth whitening procedures available on the market. The effectiveness of the available treatments can vary considerably. At Seven Star Dental, Zoom! Teeth whitening is used. This is administered under the supervision of the doctor and staff and offers the quickest and brightest change to the color of your teeth.
At-home whitening is also available using a tray whitening system. This takes a few weeks to complete. Firstly, an impression is made of your teeth so that customer whitening trays can be made to fit your teeth. The tray will be used with whitening gel on your teeth over a period of a few weeks.
Veneers allow you to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. A thin porcelain shell is used to cover the front of your teeth. These veneers will fix problems with the way that your teeth look such as cracks, spaces, misaligned teeth, and stains.
If you want a million-dollar smile, veneers will give you exactly that.
Cosmetic bonding is used to correct gaps in your teeth or to cover-up stained or discolored teeth. The procedure involves having a composite resin applied to the affected tooth. This is molded and sculpted using an adhesive gel. Following this, the resin is hardened using an LED light. One set, the resin can be polished to create a dazzling new smile.
