Smile problems? Cosmetic dentistry can improve the look of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work used to improve the appearance of a person's smile. Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. Padonia Dental Associates in Cockeysville, MD, offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. Read on to find out which cosmetic dentistry procedures are right for you.

1. Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers a tooth. Crowns can be made from ceramic, metal, or porcelain fused to metal. Crowns are routinely used to restore teeth that are cracked, weakened, and badly decayed. Permanent dental crowns can have a long life if you take good care of them.

2. Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can give you a celebrity smile. Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed over the front of the teeth to improve your smile. Veneers can improve teeth that have spaces between them, are stained, are crooked, or have become worn or chipped. Dental veneers are made in a laboratory, so you need a second visit to the dentist to have them inserted.

3. Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth. The dental implant is a small post which is implanted into the jawbone and sits below the gum line. Teeth restored with dental implants look, function, and feel just like real teeth. The benefits of dental implants include improved appearance, improved comfort, easier eating, and improved speech.

4. Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening can give you the dazzling, white smile you've always wanted. In-office bleaching involves combining hydrogen peroxide gel with a light to speed up the process. One 45-minute session can make your teeth 8-10 shades lighter. Professional take-home whitening involves dental trays filled with hydrogen peroxide gel that you can use at home. A take-home treatment can make your teeth several shades lighter in a few weeks. 

5. Cosmetic Fillings

Cosmetic fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings, are used to restore decayed or broken teeth. They are made of ceramic and plastic compounds. Cosmetic fillings can be used on either your front or back teeth. After it is bonded to the tooth, the composite resin hardens into a strong material that looks like your natural teeth.
