What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

At Carmel Professional Dentistry in South Charlotte, there are numerous reasons why our patients choose cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry allows patients to increase their confidence and overall appearance by improving their smile.

The possibilities are endless with cosmetic dentistry! Rotated, broken, and crowded teeth can many times be corrected through various cosmetic dentistry procedures. It is no wonder that cosmetic dentistry has become a vital and important part of the dental profession and one of the fastest growing areas of dentistry. For example, tooth-whitening procedures have tripled over the past five years.

Other common cosmetic dental procedures can correct misshaped, discolored, chipped, or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth – from teeth that are too long or short, to those that have gaps, or that simply need to be reshaped.

Our Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Composite Fillings: As opposed to the conventional silver-colored fillings, composite filling are resin materials that are colored to match your natural tooth.

Whitening/Bleaching: This procedure is utilized to reverse the effects of aging and remove stains from your teeth.

Veneers: Special thin porcelain laminates called veneers are used to cover stains, correct damaged teeth, and correct unsightly gaps between teeth.

Bonding: A tooth-colored filling material that can be matched to the enamel of your teeth can in some cases be used to improve the color of a tooth and also close unsightly gaps.

Cosmetic Contouring and Reshaping: A relatively simple procedure that can help to correct the appearance of chipped and crowded teeth.

Crowns: Synthetic caps, often made of porcelain.

Bridges: Natural-looking dental prosthetic that can be used to replace a missing tooth or small section of missing teeth. Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants.

Dentures: Removable prosthetic that mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. Dentures can be made from a combination of metals and synthetic material such as acrylic resin, and can be either partial or complete sets.

Implants: Synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are an excellent option for replacing missing teeth.
