Cosmetic dentistry uses oral prosthetics and advanced treatment techniques to improve the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Aside from addressing aesthetic imperfections, cosmetic dentistry can improve your oral health. By replacing missing or damaged teeth, you significantly lower the risk of tooth decay, gum recession, and bone loss.
At Smile Studio of Buford, the team offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Crowns are custom-crafted coverings that sit on top of a molar or premolar. They repair damage caused by cavities or injury and restore your tooth to its near-original shape, strength, and appearance.
The team uses porcelain and ceramic crowns. These materials blend in with your surrounding teeth and mimic the color and light-reflecting properties of your natural enamel. With good oral hygiene, crowns can last many years.
If you’re missing some or all of your permanent teeth, your provider might recommend dental implants. Implants are metal posts that provide a strong, durable base for dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. Aside from restoring your smile to a healthy condition, dental implants prevent bone loss and make biting and chewing easier.
If you have stained, slightly crooked, or unusually shaped teeth, consider veneers. Veneers are custom-tailored shells of porcelain or composite resin bonded to your teeth. Once placed, veneers restore balance and symmetry to your smile, ensuring your teeth are shiny, vibrant, and brilliantly white.
If you’re missing all of your teeth or need extensive dental work, consider a full mouth reconstruction. Full mouth reconstruction combines a variety of cosmetic dentistry techniques to restore your teeth and gums. The process typically takes several appointments spaced over weeks or months.
Teeth whitening is a type of cosmetic dentistry used to minimize the appearance of stains and tooth discoloration. There are many types of teeth whitening, but almost all use carbamide peroxide as their primary ingredient. Carbamide peroxide safely eliminates stains without damaging your teeth or gums.
To determine if you can benefit from cosmetic dentistry, your Smile Studio of Buford provider conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. Then, they take oral X-rays to determine the condition, position, and overall health of your teeth and gums.
After gathering the necessary information, the team develops a custom treatment plan for your dream smile.
