What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The main aim of dentistry is to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy for a lifetime. However, advancements made over the last 50 years have allowed dentists to develop cosmetic dentistry procedures that improve the look of your smile. 

Achieving the perfect smile has never been more achievable, from tooth whitening to full implants, East Mountain Dental can take care of your cosmetic dentistry needs. 

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

There are a number of benefits to undergoing cosmetic dentistry procedures. Many people can feel self-conscious about their teeth, which can affect their self-confidence.  Additionally, cosmetic treatments such as crowns can protect teeth from further damage and decay. 

When performed alongside standard dental treatments and a regular oral hygiene routine, there’s no reason why you can’t have a beautiful, healthy smile. 

Cosmetic services offered by East Mountain Dental

Teeth whitening

Even with a good brushing regime, teeth can become discolored. There are many factors that can cause discoloration including age, certain medications, smoking, and food and drink. 

We use only the best, most effective Opalescence Whitening system at our practice, so you can be confident about the quality and safety of whitening your teeth. Often, whitening kits bought over the internet can irreparably damage your tooth enamel, leading to further dental problems. 

Dental veneers

Veneers are a great option for hiding damaged, worn or discolored teeth. A thin shell of material, such as porcelain or resin, is used to cover the tooth. They are matched to the shade of your existing teeth for a perfect fit. They are a great solution for aesthetic improvements where a crown is not required. 

Depending on the material used and how well they are cared for, veneers can last between 10 – 20 years. 

Our dental practice uses CEREC technology, which removes the need for multiple visits and temporary veneers. Get your veneers made and fitted in one day. 

Dental crowns and bridges

While usually classed as restorative procedures, dental crowns and bridges are also used for cosmetic purposes. 

A crown is a covering that is placed over a cracked, damaged, or decayed tooth to restore its strength and appearance. They can also be fitted as part of a procedure to fit a bridge or implant. 

Dental bridges are used to fill the space occupied by two or more teeth that have been lost or removed. The bridge is usually anchored to crowns on each side. 

We know that multiple visits to complete your bridges and crowns can be frustrating and costly, which is why we use CEREC technology to provide you with same-day results.

Dental implants

Similarly to dental crowns and bridges, implants can be performed for restorative or cosmetic purposes. Implants are fixed into the jawbone and fitted with a crown.  With proper oral hygiene, an implant can last a lifetime and is a good alternative to dentures, crowns, and bridges.
