Which Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Is Right for You?
posted: Apr 18, 2019.
Do you close your mouth the instant you see a camera? Dental imperfections, gaps, and even dull teeth can make you feel so self-conscious about your appearance that you practically give up smiling. Luckily, your Washington, DC, dentist, Dr. Leslie Bonner of The Bonner Dental Network, offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures and services that can enhance your smile!
Teeth whitening removes stains that dull your tooth enamel. Professional whiteners used by dentists are stronger than those you'll find in drugstore products, and they can safely whiten your teeth as much as three to eight shades in just one hour. Professional whitening agents contain hydrogen peroxide, a natural substance that breaks apart and removes stains that collect deep inside your tooth enamel.
Implants offer the latest and most reliable way to restore missing teeth. Dental implants are small titanium posts placed in the jawbone. They're designed to replace your natural roots and bond to your jawbone in just a few months. After your implants have bonded completely, your Washington dentist will add dental crowns to the top of the crowns to complete the restoration of your teeth.
Veneers offer an excellent solution for many types of dental flaws. The thin porcelain or plastic shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement to hide a variety of imperfections. They conceal chips and cracks, cover gaps, hide discolorations, and improve the shape and length of teeth. Veneers are available in many shades of white to brighten your smile!
Offering an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear, removable aligner trays to gradually re-position teeth in a discreet fashion. During treatment, you will place a new set of aligners on your teeth approximately every two weeks. Invisalign straightens teeth and corrects mild to moderate bite problems in some older teens and adults. Aligners are designed with your convenience in mind—since you'll remove them to eat, brush, and floss, you won't need to make any changes to your usual routine!
