Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care used to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, gums, and mouth. These services usually aren’t necessary to improve your oral health, but they can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
At VidaDental, Dr. Cuevas offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-tailored shells of porcelain that attach to the front of your natural, permanent teeth. Veneers require very little preparation and can address various issues, including crooked, stained, or smaller-than-average teeth.
Dental bridges are oral prosthetics used to fill a space caused by one or several missing teeth. There are several types of dental bridges, but most people choose the “traditional” option. A traditional bridge contains one false tooth and two crowns. Dr. Cuevas bonds the crowns to your abutment teeth, the two teeth on either side of a gap.
Porcelain crowns are specially designed coverings used to restore a damaged or decaying tooth to its near-original shape, size, and strength. Once placed, a porcelain crown covers the entire portion of your tooth above the gumline. Porcelain mimics the color and light-reflecting properties of enamel, ensuring the prosthetic blends in with your smile.
If you have discolored teeth due to poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, or general wear-and-tear, consider teeth whitening. Teeth whitening uses harmless products like carbamide peroxide to cut through stains, revealing your beautiful pearly white teeth underneath. Though teeth whitening isn’t permanent, it can brighten your teeth for four to six months at a time.
If you want to address several issues with your smile, such as stained, missing, or decaying teeth, Dr. Cuevas might recommend a smile makeover. A smile makeover combines several types of cosmetic dentistry to help you achieve a Hollywood-worthy visage.
To determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, Dr. Cuevas conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment.
After gathering this information, she develops a custom treatment plan that helps you achieve the smile of your dreams.
