Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is committed to improve or enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry services can correct cosmetic issues like discolored or stained teeth, missing teeth, broken and cracked teeth, crooked teeth, and teeth damaged by decay.
Cosmetic dentistry offers you the opportunity to craft the smile of your dreams, whether you simply wish to replace a tooth or reimage your whole smile with a complete smile makeover.
What is a smile makeover?
Smile makeovers use any combination of cosmetic dentistry services to custom design your ideal smile.
At Bruce L. Elkind, DDS, PA, Dr. Elkind begins a smile makeover with a consultation to discuss your wishes and goals for treatment. To determine which procedures might work best for you, he also considers variables such as:
- Teeth size and alignment
- Gum tissue size and shape
- Teeth color
- Facial appearance
These variables help Dr. Elkind decide on certain details, like the shape and length of your new teeth, and what shade of teeth best compliments your natural features.
What types of cosmetic dentistry are available to me?
Dr. Elkind offers cosmetic dentistry options including but not limited to:
Dental bonding is a simple procedure during which Dr. Elkind restores and protects a tooth suffering from one or more small imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or damage from a small cavity. He may also use dental bonding to lengthen teeth or fill in small gaps between them.
To do so, Dr. Elkind applies a plastic paste onto the front of your offending tooth, and then hardens the paste with a UV light. Next, he shapes and files the bonding so that your repaired tooth looks natural and attractive.
Dental veneers are paper-thin shells that Dr. Elkind affixes to the front of your teeth in order to resolve cosmetic issues, such as cracks, stains, gaps, and crooked teeth.
Inlays and onlays
Sometimes called “indirect fillings,” onlays and inlays are premolded fillings that restore teeth damaged by tooth decay or trauma. They are like regular fillings, but inlays and onlays target larger areas.
Through in-house teeth whitening, Dr. Elkind can dramatically brighten your teeth.
Dental implant restorations
Dental implant restorations are an excellent option for those missing several or all of their teeth. Dental implant restorations use titanium posts, called dental implants, to replace your natural tooth roots and provide your artificial teeth with an incredibly strong foundation.
