What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile, otherwise known as smile enhancement treatment. Cosmetic dentistry can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between.

What Cosmetic Dentistry Services Do We Offer?

The cosmetic dentistry treatments currently provided by My Dentist in Austin include:

VENEERS

Dental veneers refer to ultra-thin sheets of medical-grade ceramic material that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth to correct a number of cosmetic dental problems, including cracked or chips, crooked teeth, severe stains, and even noticeable spaces between teeth. The thickness of each layer of veneers is customized to suit the specific needs of each tooth to give you a uniform look.

WHITENING

Teeth whitening is arguably the most common cosmetic dental procedure. It is also the simplest treatment with a number of options for in-office or at-home teeth bleaching. For instant results, you should consider in-office whitening options. Our dentist will start by cleaning your teeth to remove the plaque, calculus, and other debris on the surface of your teeth. Afterwards, they will be bleached to give you a lighter shade. You may also need an at-home bleaching kit to maintain your sparkling smile.

IMPLANTS

Implants are the best tooth replacement option that gives you a prosthetic tooth that is nearly as strong as your natural teeth. They can also be used together with dentures or bridges depending on the number of teeth that need replacing. Our dentist will place the implant (titanium screw) into your jawbone, and allow it to bond with the bone for a few month. Afterwards, the crown or denture can be placed.

CROWNS

Crowns or tooth caps are tooth-colored porcelain enclosures that are placed around badly broken or heavily filled teeth to restore their strength and appearance.
