In today’s society, general appearance and especially a great smile have become the starting point of all meetings, whether professional or personal. The high demand for a healthy looking smile has brought new techniques and improvements to create new aesthetic solutions to help modify and improve the smile.
What is “cosmetic dentistry”? It is the entire branch of dentistry that deals with improving the appearance of teeth which includes:
- Restorative Dentistry (improving the chewing function, veneers or crowns)
- Orthodontics (repositioning of the teeth)
Some patients are tired of having amalgam fillings (also known as “silver fillings”). In this case, the patient may request to change the old filling with a composite filling (“white filling”) or a porcelain inlay to brighten the tooth.
When the front teeth turn yellow, are stained, broken, chipped or if spacing occurs, it is possible to restore them and make them as beautiful as they once were with composite restorations in no time. For more complex cases, we recommend porcelain veneers or crowns.
