Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at approving the appearance of teeth. These treatments help correct the size, shape, and color of teeth in order to improve oral health and the appearance of your smile. With advancements in dental technology, the field of cosmetic dentistry has evolved so that treatments are quicker, easier and last longer. We know that “Confidence Begins With A Great Smile,” and we look forward to helping you get there! Below are some of the cosmetic treatments offered at Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry.
Whitening is a great solution if you like the way your teeth look and feel, but want them to be whiter and brighter. While there are many different types of whitening systems available, Smileboston uses BriteSmile due its amazing results and ease of treatment – one hour and one office visit!
Dental bonding is used to repair chips or fill gaps in teeth or to improve the appearance of a discolored tooth. A tooth-colored resin is applied to teeth and then sculpted and shaped on the tooth to make it look realistic. Dental bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic treatments available.
Tooth-colored fillings are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that may have fractured or decayed, tooth-colored fillings may also be used to cosmetically change the size, color and shape of teeth.
Porcelain veneers are similar to dental bonding, but instead of resin, a porcelain shell is crafted and bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Porcelain veneers cover up cracks, chips, whitening-resistant stains, gaps, and more.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges allow for the replacement of missing teeth or to fill spaces between teeth. Crowns are individual dental restorations that are placed over a tooth or implant to restore the natural look and function of a missing or broken down tooth. A bridge can replace a missing tooth or teeth by attaching to the ‘anchor’ teeth on either side of the missing area.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used as an alternative treatment to dental crowns or traditional dental fillings. Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, stronger, longer lasting solution for tooth decay or similar damage. These restorations are beneficial from both an aesthetic and functional point of view.
