Healthy teeth are goal number one, but it’s nice to have a beautiful smile that makes you feel self-confident, too. At Lee Dental located in Frisco, Texas, Dr. Clyde Lee and Dr. Julie Lee stay up to date on developments in cosmetic dentistry to keep your teeth looking bright, strong, and white.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry explains that cosmetic dentistry is aimed at “creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile.” Cosmetic dentists not only emphasize the importance of teeth function and health but their appearance over a lifetime.
At Lee Dental, the menu of cosmetic services includes:
Dental implants restore the structure to your tooth and mouth when you lose a tooth. The implant replaces the root of the lost tooth. It’s then covered with a crown for optimal appearance and function. Most implants are permanent and look and function just like real teeth.
Bridges are another way to fill the gap of a missing tooth. It’s a false tooth that sits in the space of a lost one. It’s nonremovable and considered like a prosthetic tooth because it attaches to your existing teeth on both sides.
Bonding is a natural-looking covering that’s affixed to the front of a tooth to replace worn-away enamel or chipped or broken spots. It restores a completely natural look to your smile and blends into your tooth structure, so your teeth have a pleasing shape and look.
Veneers are another way to enhance the appearance of your smile when you have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. They’re thin pieces of porcelain which are layered over the original tooth enamel. A millimeter or so of the natural tooth enamel is filed down to create room for the application of the veneer.
No one wants yellow teeth, as whiter teeth give your smile an enhanced appearance. Numerous ways to bring this brighter smile exist. Externally, the teeth may be bleached with a whitening agent. At Lee Dental, the Zoom! Teeth Whitening system is available. You’ll have a gel applied to your teeth, and then an overhead lamp sends UV light to activate the whitening gel.
Full mouth reconstruction may be appropriate if you have multiple missing teeth, a number of compromised teeth, or badly worn teeth due to grinding or an accident. You’ll experience a complete revision of your smile and restore functionality of your teeth.
