Cosmetic, or aesthetic dentistry, is focused on the way teeth look. The focus of this branch of dentistry is on form, color, and the position of the teeth and providing a beautiful, perfect smile. Aesthetic Dentistry of Stuart provides many services to their customers including whitening, adjusting the appearance of teeth, hiding flawed teeth, and even basic general dentistry needs.
Over time teeth can become discolored. A cosmetic dentist can remove the stains from your teeth through a process called bleaching. The procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how deep the staining is. It may take several sessions to completely whiten deeply stained teeth.
Hiding Flaws in Teeth
Bonding is a procedure used on teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken. The dentist will use bonding materials to fill any small cavities and around the gum line to protect the root of the tooth.
Enamel shaping and contouring are done to remove excess enamel and reshape teeth that are oddly shaped. When combined with bonding, a dentist can use this method to fix:
* Crooked teeth
* Overlapping teeth
* Chipped teeth
Veneers & Crowns
Veneers are basically a shell for your tooth. They are made of either porcelain or plastic. They cover the sides and front of your teeth to correct:
* Spaces between the teeth
* Seal chipped or worn teeth
* Cover teeth that are permanently stained
* Cover teeth that are misshapen
* Correct the appearance of teeth that are slightly crooked
Crowns, also known as caps, completely cover a tooth. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, resin, or ceramic. A crown is used to restore the normal shape of a tooth and to:
* Cover misshapen teeth
* Reinforce weak teeth
* Provide a large filling
* Secure a dental bridge
