When you feel good about your smile, it shows. Dental health is paramount, but it’s also important to have a smile that you be proud to show the world. If you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, it can feel like a burden—you avoid getting your picture taken, you’re always careful not to show your teeth when you smile, and you worry about how people might judge you if they see what your teeth look like. With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Cusanello can improve your smile and give you the confidence to smile proudly.
Lexington Prosthodontics offers the following cosmetic dentistry services:
Cosmetic bonding is a simple treatment that involves using a tooth-colored composite material to reshape the teeth, masking minor cosmetic imperfections like chips, cracks, and discoloration. It takes an eye for detail and artistry to produce realistic results with cosmetic bonding, which is why a prosthodontist is a good choice for this procedure.
Veneers are thin, porcelain coverings made at a dental lab, that fit over the front of your teeth for a natural appearance. We use veneers to correct issues with color, alignment, size, shape, spacing, and chips. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed, then the veneer is permanently bonded to your tooth.
Professional teeth whitening treatments yield dramatic results in a short amount of time. You’ll leave our office looking younger and refreshed.
There’s no need to hide your smile while waiting for permanent dentures to be fabricated. With immediate dentures, you’ll walk out our doors with a full set of teeth.
What does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry typically includes any procedure that is primarily performed for aesthetic reasons, like teeth whitening and veneers. Some treatments offer both cosmetic and functional benefits, like crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Is cosmetic dentistry painful?
The answer to this question depends on the treatment being performed, but cosmetic dentistry generally involves only the outermost layer of tooth enamel, so there is no pain involved, although in some situations, there may be some sensitivity.
Can I make my teeth bigger?
Yes, if you feel your teeth are naturally too small or they’ve worn down over time, dental veneers and cosmetic bonding can be used to provide more length.
Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?
If you use over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments, it can result in enamel erosion and painful sensitivity, particularly if you purchase treatments that do not carry the American Dental Association seal. Professional teeth whitening treatments are not bad for your teeth, as we take precautions to protect them from damage.
Do veneers look fake?
When your veneers are designed by a prosthodontist, you’ll never have to worry about them looking fake. Our advanced training gives us the ability to create veneers that are in perfect harmony with your facial features for completely natural results. Your veneers will look like your own teeth, only better.
