Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Easy Ways To Have A Better Smile

Easy Ways To Have A Better Smile:

Many people dread going to the dentist. This fear often stems from the common misconception that dental treatments are always painful. Proper dental care is vital to health and success, yet many people fail to get the treatments they need because they avoid dentists. The truth is cosmetic dentistry is not necessarily painful. Many dental problems are treatable with only minimally invasive procedures. Easy Ways To Have A Better Smile

Teeth Whitening:

Teeth whitening is a procedure done for stained and discolored teeth. There are many techniques available to do this. Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening:

Laser whitening works by applying a chemical gel to the teeth and then using a laser to activate the gel's whitening effects on the teeth. One office visit is enough for this procedure. Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening:

Tray bleaching requires wearing a tray with bleaching gel over your teeth. The patient wears the tray for a short time each day and this gradually whitens the teeth. This is useful because it is inexpensive, done at home, and the gradual effects keeps others from noticing the difference in your smile as much. Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening:

Whitening strips sold in most supermarkets and drug stores. These take about a week for the full effects to work. Teeth Whitening

Tooth Veneers:

Tooth veneers hide discolored and stained teeth as well as chipped or crooked teeth. A thin piece of porcelain or plastic attaches to the teeth with a type of glue or dental cement. This procedure only requires one or two office visits and a minimal amount of tooth reduction to make room for the veneer. Usually less than a millimeter is enough to provide the necessary room. These veneers last for 10 to 15 years. Tooth Veneers


Lumineers are very similar to normal tooth veneers except for the type of porcelain. Lumineers are cerinate porcelain. This is so thin that no tooth reduction is necessary. They are usable over existing crowns and bridges. The procedure is also reversible in most cases. Only one or two office visits is enough to have these on your teeth. Lumineers

Dental Bonding:

A mild acidic solution creates very small crevices in the tooth enamel. This gives the tooth a rough surface where a resin bonds with the tooth. Once enough coats of the resin is on the tooth and hardened, the dentist sculpts this into the desired shape and then polishes. Dental Bonding

Tooth Contouring and Reshaping:

Tooth contouring sometimes takes just a single session with a dentist if only minimal changes are necessary. A few slight reductions made on the problem teeth and then the dentist applies a bit of laminate creating a beautiful smile. The patient feels almost no discomfort. Tooth Contouring and Reshaping
