Cosmetic and General Dentist in San Jose, CA
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
A healthy smile is made up of healthy looking teeth and gums. This is just what cosmetic dentistry provides to patients. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of the patient's teeth, gums, and their smile. Cosmetic dentists work to enhance the aesthetics of the patient's smile by whitening their teeth, repairing teeth that are damaged or broken, and even filling up problematic gaps between teeth.
Why would a Patient Undergo a Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure?
When a patient has many gaps between their teeth or their teeth are chipped and cracked, it can affect the aesthetics of their smile. Cosmetic dentistry includes many procedures such as dental implants, dental bridges, and crowns that fix the damaged teeth. It also includes tooth-whitening procedures that are safe and effective in making teeth look brighter and much lighter. Teeth can also be reshaped and restored depending upon the needs of the patient. There are cosmetic procedures to straighten crooked or misaligned tooth, which can save patients from having to get braces.
What are the various types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
There are several cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the patient's smile. Fillings are used in cases where patients have cavities. These dental fillings can be of many types and they protect the patient’s teeth from further damage and decay.
Cosmetic dental procedures like gum correction make the patient's gum line appear even and smooth. An uneven gum line can look odd and make teeth look small which is why gum contouring is a very viable and an effective option. Other cosmetic procedures like the 20-minute whitening method are designed to give people attractive smiles. The 20-minute whitening procedure is useful for patients looking for quick results.
