What you need to know about cosmetic dentistry procedures
The world of dentistry has changed dramatically. Now, dental treatments are not just functional; they are also completed to make your smile more beautiful. This is the beautiful world of cosmetic dentistry. If you want your smile to not just feel great, but to look great too, you need to consider cosmetic dentistry procedures; but with so many options available, what to choose? Dr. Jennifer Kim of Pender Dental Care in Fairfax, Virginia wants to help you decide which procedure is right for you.
Dr. Kim offers a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures to correct aesthetic issues with your smile. Consider:
Dental bonding and reshaping- using composite, a tooth-colored resin material that can repair small chips and cracks in your teeth, or reshape the look of uneven, crooked, or worn teeth.
Teeth whitening treatments- used to whiten yellowed, darkened teeth from coffee, smoking or aging. Dr. Kim offers speedy in-office whitening which takes about an hour, or convenient take-home whitening kits you use when the time is right for you, in the comfort and privacy of your home.
Porcelain veneers- used to correct major cosmetic problems with your front teeth such as:
- Heavy stains and discolorations
- Overlapping or poor alignment
- Damage, breakage or poor shape
- Uneven spacing or gapping
- Cracks, chips or age-related wear
Dental implants- to replace one or more missing teeth, making your smile and your face look younger.
Cosmetic fillings- using composite to create natural-looking tooth colored fillings. Cosmetic fillings can also replace bulky, unsightly metal fillings to create a more beautiful look.
Inlays and onlays- used in place of silver or composite fillings, inlays and onlays can be made of gold, for strength, or porcelain for cosmetic beauty.
