Cosmetic dentistry includes all dental techniques aimed at improving and restoring the natural beauty of your teeth, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile, while maintaining the health and functionality of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your self-image and have a positive physical and psychological impact.
Why Would I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
The indications for cosmetic dentistry are numerous and correspond to a large number of clinical situations. The most frequent reasons for cosmetic consultation are as follows:
- you want to replace one (or more) missing tooth (s), particularly in the anterior sector,
- you want to “fix” a broken, deformed or chipped tooth, especially if it is a front tooth
- you find your teeth stained, yellowish, greyish, stained,
- the alignment of your smile does not suit you or you are complex,
- you find that your smile is too “gummy” (your gums are really visible when you smile).
The dental industry is constantly evolving with the development at the cutting edge of technology and the use of advanced equipment. Therefore, if you want to achieve a flawless smile that can also help you with some concerns in your mouth, see your dentist today for an oral evaluation and set a schedule for the procedures recommended by your dentist.
They are more and more popular, which fully testifies to their effectiveness. The dental veneers are thin ceramic films of the dentist specializing in aesthetic smile glue on the surface of teeth. In colour, shape, and size, they blend in perfectly with the teeth and offer a natural result. Dental veneers can thus correct multiple defects:
- A slight dental overlap
- A spacing like teeth of happiness
- Stained or yellowed teeth
- Teeth too small, too sharp, too wide, too long …
Made to measure, dental veneers are an excellent solution to having a beautiful smile. These prostheses also have a lifespan of over 10 years. And their installation is completely painless.
What Do I Get From Cosmetic Dental Treatments?
The appearance of teeth often has a great influence on self-confidence and on relationships with others. It can be different from one person to another, in particular, according to genetic factors, but also of the age and the habits of each one. Among these factors, we find more specifically:
- Shock, which can be the cause of chipped teeth
- Dental caries or a disease that attacks the tooth and degrades its appearance
- A devitalisation, as a result of treatment of a dental condition
- The consumption of drugs or drinks may stain teeth
- The aging of the teeth and damage the enamel, which can dull the teeth
Aesthetic procedures remain above all medical acts which require the intervention of qualified professionals.
In all these cases, our Cosmetic Dentistry experts are able to offer you services tailored to your needs. They ensure a follow-up of the treatment and the preparation of your teeth upstream, in order to obtain an optimal result. Our centres are multidisciplinary and our dental surgeons know how to make your teeth radiant as well as to guarantee their good health.
Over time, teeth naturally change colour. Other factors lead to an alteration of their colour: heredity, certain drugs, tobacco, coffee… However, to remove stains or make your teeth white, good oral hygiene and scaling are not enough. Tooth whitening is a technique practiced by the dentist that allows you to find a radiant smile. He applies a concentrated product to your teeth using a gutter that he leaves in place during the session. It is painless and effective on the majority of dental discoloration problems.
Broken, cracked, “lead” teeth… tend to distort a smile. To restore their appearance to these damaged teeth, the dentist uses specific filling materials such as composite resin. In colour and transparency, they mimic natural teeth in every way and no longer stand out when you smile.
If a tooth lacks material, it is possible to compensate for this loss by an onlay or an inlay, also invisible. This will also have the effect of strengthening and protecting the tooth.
Improving your smile has a dramatic effect on your overall appearance and this is the reason why many people engage in this type of dental treatment.
