Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures

There are several types of cosmetic dental procedures for rejuvenating your smile. Common cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate your smile include:

  • Veneers
  • Bonding
  • Contouring
  • Teeth whitening

Veneers are thin covers applied to the front of problem teeth to give them a completely new look. Veneers can be used to conceal a variety of imperfections, such as cracks, chips, and discolorations. Veneers can also transform the shape of teeth that are misshaped. Once in place, veneers look like your natural teeth.

Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can serve several purposes. Bonding can close gaps between teeth, repair teeth that are chipped or cracked, or correct the color of discolored teeth. The procedure for bonding involves applying a resin material to the problem area on a tooth. As the material dries, it bonds with the tooth and the problem is corrected. Once dry, the bonded material will blend in with the tooth and will be unnoticeable.

Contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure for reshaping teeth. Contouring can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are crooked, chipped, cracked, or overlap with one another. The procedure for contouring problem teeth involves gradually removing small portions of enamel from the teeth until they have been properly reshaped.

Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment for brightening the teeth and removing stains from them. Some dental practices offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options. Both options deliver superior results to over-the-counter whitening products as they contain a professional strength bleaching agent. Professional teeth whitening can whiten the teeth by several shades with long-lasting results.
