Easy Fixes with Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry services are widely used to address aesthetic concerns with teeth. When you think about cosmetic dentistry, you might think of more extensive procedures that require a great deal of dental work, but in fact, many patients use cosmetic dentistry to fix smaller issues, and the process can be relatively easy. Here are some of the most common easy fixes with cosmetic dentistry: 

  • Gaps: Gaps between teeth are a common concern for patients. Gaps can make it harder to clean your teeth, and for many people, it's just not something they want in their smile. Fixing this issue can be as simple as placing a custom veneer over your tooth. Veneers are very thin shells that are custom fit to your teeth, and they are an easy treatment. 
  • Chips or cracks: Similar to gaps, chips or cracks in your teeth can be addressed with veneers as well. If you have experienced an injury or cracked your tooth while eating, and the damage is not too severe, veneers are a great choice. The thin, durable shell will be fitted for your tooth to ensure that it looks and feels natural, and it will cover those cosmetic blemishes. 
  • Discolored teeth: If your teeth aren't as white as you would like, professional teeth whitening is an easy, effective choice. Professional teeth whitening provides custom-fit trays, and professional strength whitening gel to ensure the best results possible. Your dentist will consult with you on how much whiter you'd like to go, and will create a treatment plan based on your needs. 

If you have a cosmetic issue that you'd like resolved, visiting a dentist is the best way to find out just how extensive your treatment needs are. Often times, your dentist can provide you with a simple and effective fix that won't take too long in the dental chair.
