Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there are so many procedures out there. How do you know which one will give you the results you are looking for?

You can start by examining the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures and learning why they are getting so much attention these days.

What treatments are people choosing?
In progressive cosmetic dentistry practices throughout the United States, the smile makeover is quickly gaining popularity. The smile makeover is actually a personalized treatment made up of a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures. The treatment combinations are different for each patient and depend on your enhancement needs. By combining a few treatments into 2 or more office visits, patients can see dramatic improvements in the form of a more attractive smile appearance.

Let's look at the individual treatments that are getting the most requests:

  • Tooth whitening - Whitening has been popular for years, but it seems to be getting extra attention now that whitening technology has stepped up a notch. It is now possible to get dramatic whitening results, 8 or more shades brighter, in about an hour's time.

  • Porcelain veneers - Porcelain veneer technology has also greatly improved in recent years. Often referred to as "instant orthodontics," porcelain veneers allow you to see a great smile improvement in only two visits. The porcelain material is affixed to the front surfaces of teeth and looks just like natural enamel!

  • Porcelain fillings and porcelain crowns - Metal fillings and crowns are things of the past. Porcelain is the material of choice when it comes to smile appearance. It is strong, durable, natural-looking and can last many years with good care. Porcelain fillings and crowns are the new high standard in cavity treatment, and they can also be used when a tooth has been weakened due to physical injury or outdated metal dental work. And, with CEREC technology, these can be made while you wait in as little as ten minutes.

  • Dental bonding - Dental bonding is a conservative, flexible, and affordable solution when it comes to smile improvement. Cosmetic dental bonding allows the dentist to repair a variety of tooth imperfections, including breaks, chips, cracks, spacing issues and discoloration
What treatments should I choose?
First, consider your objectives. Then, choose an experienced cosmetic dentist who not only offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art treatment options, but also offers the qualities you want in the areas of financing, personal care, experience and results.
