Countless dental surveys have found that Americans place a very high value on the appearance of their teeth. A nice smile tops the list of the most important features to have along with clear skin, bright eyes and beautiful hair. Thanks to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, you can get a perfect smile in just a few appointments at Dougherty Dental Solutions.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry Any treatment that is performed to improve the look of your teeth falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. Dental professionals have been administering cosmetic procedures for decades, and in ancient times people used shells, stones and animal bones to create makeshift dental restorations. Today, cosmetic dentistry is a $2.75 billion industry.
Top Cosmetic Treatments Though patients most often go to the dentist’s office because there’s an urgent problem, some go specifically for a cosmetic solution. Here are some of the top cosmetic treatments used in dental offices across the country:
- Crowns and Bridgework, to replace large amounts of lost tooth structure and/or missing teeth
- Cosmetic Bonding and Contouring, to repair small chips or cracks
- Dental Implants, for the longest-lasting tooth replacement available today
- Professional Teeth Whitening , to brighten a faded or discolored smile
- Porcelain Veneers, for repairing larger chips and cracks, and reshaping teeth
- Removable Dentures, to help you smile again
Getting Your Perfect Smile In some cases, your dentist will recommend a combination of cosmetic treatments to help you get your perfect smile. For
example, your treatment plan may include Invisalign clear aligners to reposition your teeth and professional whitening to make them look brighter. In some cases your dentist might need to use both veneers and crowns to recreate your smile.
