Modern dentistry can do more than treat a cavity or two; it can improve the appearance of teeth substantially. With today’s techniques and technology, any smile can be improved with cosmetic treatments such as bonding white restorations, placing porcelain veneers, or lightening the color of teeth with professional teeth whitening. Dr. Holloman has experience creating smile makeovers that turn even the most imperfect teeth into beautiful, healthy-looking ones.

Common Dental Imperfections

Common issues that make people want to improve the appearance of their smiles include permanently stained teeth, teeth with jagged edges, misshapen teeth, and improperly spaced teeth. Cosmetic issues can range from completely intrinsic in nature to needing aesthetically pleasing restorative materials. While cosmetic dental issues can vary from person to person, there is hardly anyone who can’t benefit from receiving a smile-enhancing treatment.

Popular Cosmetic Treatments

Some of the most popular cosmetic treatments include professional whitening, the placing of white restorations like dental crowns, and the bonding of custom made porcelain veneers. Professional whitening is far more effective than products like strips or toothpastes that can be bought over the counter. Store bought products might contain unstable formulas or abrasives, which can harm teeth or leave behind a smile with little noticeable improvement. Placing white restorations and bonding cosmetic enhancements like veneers can produce a smile makeover that is noticeable yet not unnatural looking to others. White crowns made from porcelain are great for placing over worn down, cracked, stained, and misshapen teeth while porcelain veneers can be used to produce a perfectly straight, white, and proportionate smile. Old unsightly dental work can also be replaced with tooth-colored alternatives so that teeth are protected but still natural looking.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a variety of procedures and treatments that focus on improving the appearance of teeth and a person’s overall smile. Common and popular cosmetic treatments include professional teeth whitening, placing white restorations, and bonding porcelain veneers. Cosmetic dentistry can transform the appearance of teeth affected by deep stains, cracks, chips, spacing problems, and misshapen or jagged edges.
A dental crown is a restoration used to cover the entire visible surface of a tooth. This means that a crown will fit over a tooth like a cap, covering its biting surfaces and sides. When teeth are ravaged by damage or disease, they can be especially vulnerable to disease and unsightly. While dental crowns are used commonly for restorations, they have cosmetic benefits, too. From a cosmetic standpoint, a crown made from tooth-colored materials can make a tooth look bright white, healthy, and proportionate to other teeth. Crowns made from porcelain are incredibly lifelike. They are available in various shades of white and because of their reflective properties, they mimic the natural luster of biological teeth. Porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crowns are great complements to smiles noticeably affected by staining, wear and tear, and cracks or chips. If a person has multiple teeth in need of repair or improvement, multiple crowns can be used to substantially improve the aesthetics of a smile.
A porcelain veneer is a cosmetic enhancement used to conceal dental imperfections. Made from porcelain, veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-shaped shells that are bonded over the front sides of teeth. Porcelain veneers can produce a total smile makeover - even for those with the most noticeably imperfect teeth. Sometimes veneers are referred to as “instant orthodontics” because when a series of veneers are bonded over crooked or rotated teeth, they can produce the appearance of a straight, beautiful smile.
If you have sensitive teeth, you likely don’t want to do anything that exacerbates your symptoms. Many people shy away from teeth whitening if they have sensitive teeth because they have heard that whitening can make sensitivity worse. This is true when patients use and/or misuse over the counter whitening products like toothpastes and white strips. These products can contain unstable formulas or abrasives that can increase tooth sensitivity. Fortunately, professional whitening treatments utilize safe but effective formulas that won’t harm tooth enamel or permanently increase tooth sensitivity. Professional whitening is a long-lasting complement to your smile that can greatly improve your appearance without an invasive procedure.
