There are many types of dental problems that can make you feel uncomfortable and lower your self-esteem, such as chipped teeth, receding gums, discoloured teeth, deformed teeth or unwanted spaces between your teeth. With the help of modern technology, however, dentists have the ability and skills to help us achieve a healthy, bright smile.
Here at Bennani Dental Clinic, this combination of beauty, health and function is our ultimate goal for every patient.
We call it "cosmetic dentistry", and in today's article, we'll explain why this approach to care will help you achieve the best results.
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that involves skills and techniques to improve the appearance, shape, colour, alignment and size of your smile, as well as its overall health and function. Sometimes people may refer to cosmetic dentistry as cosmetic dentistry, however, they are both very different. Regardless of having the same goal of perfecting your smile, cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your smile while cosmetic dentistry aims to improve appearance, function and oral health. If you've ever had cosmetic dentistry, you may have a smile that looks "Hollywood approved"; pearly white and perfectly shaped. If you've ever had cosmetic dentistry, you probably have a smile that looks natural and matches the color and shape of your original tooth.
Some common cosmetic dental techniques include :
- Dental bonding - repairs cracked or chipped teeth and can help fix discolouration.
- Veneers - Secure the spaces between teeth and mask cracks or chips in the teeth. These are thin layers of porcelain placed on the tooth to protect the enamel or restore discoloration.
- Dental implants - A replacement for missing teeth that can be permanent or removable.
- Dental bridges - Bridges Used to fill the space between teeth to improve occlusion and maintain the shape of the mouth. They are permanent and require regular oral care.
- Dental crown - A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged, weak, decayed or sensitive tooth. The cap has the same shape as the natural tooth and is made of porcelain.
