Not everyone is happy with the way their smile looks. To some, the condition of their teeth is embarrassing for them even when talking to family and friends. If you wanted to change your smile, the best choice of action would be to see a dentists and discuss with them options of cosmetic dentistry. Brooksville residents should be aware of the different types of procedures that can help you have a more confident smile!
If a patient is self conscious about their teeth with tooth decay then they should look into Inlays, onlays, and overlays. These indirect fillings are used on moderately damaged teeth that cover part of the tooth, as opposed to the whole thing like a crown. These fillings are created in a laboratory from a composite resin material and then is attached to your damaged teeth with a dental cement. These fillings are not just for cosmetic dentistry! Brooksville residents also get the utilitarian value of having them strengthen teeth, and help avoid any further decay.
If tooth damage is bad enough, dentist might instead use composite bonding rather than inlays. Composite bonding is when a dentist physically drills out the decay, and fills it with a composite material cement that is hardened with a light. When contemplating cosmetic dentistry, Brooksville residents should know that this is one of the least expensive options for trying to achieve a better smile.
When a tooth is missing as opposed to damaged, implants are recommended to give a more natural look. A titanium screw is placed where the missing tooth is, and then a crown is mounted on it to give a fuller smile. Implants are not like dentures because they cannot be removed, they are locked in place.
No matter what the procedure or material is to fix your smile don’t fret! Dentistry has come a long way to make materials and solutions that look very natural to give yourself the new sense confidence you were trying to achieve!
