5 Cosmetic Procedures for a Beautiful Mouth for Any Occasion
Porcelain veneers, dental bonding with resin materials, and crowns are still some of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures by patients.
More patients, though, are inquiring about periodontal and implantology procedures like dental implants and gum reshaping to provide them with a sharper appearance, more confidence, and greater ease while doing things like eating and chewing.
These procedures are quicker and more comfortable than sometimes initially thought. You can always request sedation before and during your procedure, and using state-of-the-art lasers to carry out laser gum surgeries means less discomfort and quicker healing times.
The technology behind dental implants is progressing by leaps and bounds. The resins used in dental bonding and porcelain veneers are becoming stronger and more natural looking, making these options great choices for those looking into cosmetic procedures.
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports that over 30 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both of their jaws. That’s a large number and it’s only growing. About half that number of Americans have crowns and bridges to address large gaps or missing teeth.
Enter dental implants. The success rate for dental implants is astoundingly high at over 98% and the pain can be lessened with the use of sedatives and anesthesia—both given and monitored by a trained professional.
Dental implants are typically supported by titanium posts, and today’s titanium-supported dental implants are considered the only dental restorative treatment that actually benefits and stimulates your supporting bone structure.
A consultation is necessary before undergoing more progressive cosmetic procedures like dental implants. A dental and radiologic exam at Central Florida Periodontics and Implantology is the first step to a dramatically improved smile that lasts!
A lot of people refrain from smiling in pictures or feel like they’re holding a piece of themselves back around company because they have a smile that they feel is too gummy. Sometimes your gums can feel like they’re just not contoured perfectly or you feel you have an uneven gum line in certain areas.
Dr. Sevor and his experienced, caring staff at Central Florida Periodontics and Implantology can help correct all of these gum issues.
Gum reshaping employs the latest advances in laser technology to gently correct gum issues and contour your gums in a way that’s effective yet safe and on the comfortable side for most patients.
Tooth reshaping is sometimes called dental contouring because it allows a dentist the chance to subtly mold certain teeth so that they’re not putting undue stress on other teeth.
Chips, overlapping, unusually oriented teeth, or teeth that are shaped abnormally could all be candidates for perhaps the quickest and most affordable of all popular dental cosmetic procedures.
Braces and Invisalign
Both braces and aligners like Invisalign are examples of bite adjustment cosmetic procedures.
Braces are typically made from metal or ceramic and feature brackets that are securely yet safely bonded to your teeth. A wire then is allowed to fit through your brace’s brackets in order to more perfectly align your teeth.
The end result is often a much more aesthetically pleasing smile and less wear-and-tear damage to your teeth over time.
As your teeth receive correction for underbites, overbites, or spacing issues with braces or Invisalign, there’s far less stress put on your teeth when you eat and chew food.
Scaling and Root Planing
Your gums play a major role in supporting your teeth and giving you a dazzling smile. Scaling and root planing are two cosmetic procedures that make use of modern technology (e.g., ultrasonic scalers) and can help patients take control of their gum health.
