Five Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Offered At Kaimuki Dental Group

1. Teeth Whitening

Over time, consumption of things like coffee, soda, or tobacco can result in stained or discolored teeth. To regain your sparkling smile, try teeth whitening to remove stains.

2. Cosmetic Contouring

With cosmetic contouring, your dentist can fix small irregularities in your smile. Also known as tooth reshaping, this process is done by removing a small piece of enamel from the outside of the tooth, allowing for a change in the surface, shape, or length of the tooth.

3. Veneers

Veneers can fix chips, discoloration, or unevenness. Your dentist will place a thin piece of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth, evening out their color and shape for a picture perfect smile.

4. Cosmetic Fillings

cosmetic dentistrySometimes a filling is needed for oral health reasons, like fixing a cavity. In some cases, you may desire special cosmetic fillings, which will be matched to the shade of your natural teeth. This makes for a more aesthetically pleasing look.

5. Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth, it’s not always medically necessary to get a replacement. Most people prefer to get a dental implant to fill in any gaps. With a dental implant, a small titanium screw is inserted into the jaw, which mimics the root of a natural tooth. The fake tooth is then attached to the small titanium post, resulting in a natural-looking complete smile.
