5 Types of Cosmetic Dentistry, Perinton, New York

Many people are surprised to find that cosmetic dentistry is about more than just aesthetics. A lot of the same procedures which grant you a dazzling smile also make your teeth easier to clean, protect them from damage, and provide mental and physical health benefits.

To give his patients full access to these benefits, David M. Kramer D.D.S. in Fairport, NY, offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Below, he highlights five of the most common techniques and what they can do for your smile.

Top 5 Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Techniques

1. Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are caps that are generally made of porcelain and are designed to fit over an entire tooth. The porcelain takes the place of the outer enamel to create a new, beautiful look while holding together broken sections of your tooth or covering its exposed interior.

2. Veneers

Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that are similar to crowns. However, this solution differs because it only covers the front section of the tooth, rather than the entire thing. This makes it the perfect option to address issues such as discoloration or crookedness.

3. Dental Bonding

This technique is just as versatile as veneers, but it is quicker to apply and more affordable. Using the same composite resin substance employed in tooth-colored fillings, your dentist will sculpt a new shape for your tooth.

4. Dental Implants

Cosmetic DentistryA lost tooth can have a serious impact on your oral health and appearance. Implant dentistry is the only prosthetic option which replaces the tooth root, as well as the visible crown, preserving the health of your jawbone.

5. Orthodontics

Straight teeth are not just attractive—they’re also easier to clean and distribute the force of your bite more evenly than crooked ones. For these reasons, orthodontic options like braces or clear aligners will boost your dental health, as well as your self-esteem.
