Bradenton Cosmetic Dentistry
Your smile speaks to the world! Are you proud of yours, or are there aspects of it you’d like to improve or change? Perhaps you’re not satisfied with the color of your teeth, or maybe you have small chips or fractures that need to be repaired. Maybe you’re missing a tooth and would like to learn about replacement options.
Whatever the case may be, cosmetic dentistry offers many solutions that can enhance and restore your smile.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
A dental procedure that is designed to enhance the appearance of your smile is considered to be cosmetic dentistry. Many of these procedures, however, will also improve the function of your teeth and bite. Because restorative and cosmetic dentistry go hand in hand, you’ll appreciate the form, function, and esthetics you receive from cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic procedures include:
- Invisalign, which straightens crooked or misaligned teeth
- Porcelain veneers, which are designed to repair small chips, fractures, and discoloration
- Teeth whitening, which enhances the brightness and color of your smile
- Tooth-colored fillings, which can restore cavities and repair small chipping
- Porcelain crowns, which can restore a tooth that has been damaged or fractured beyond what a filling can repair
- Dental implants, which can replace one or more missing teeth
Dental veneers are a thin shell made of porcelain that is custom designed to fit over your natural tooth. Dr. Clarke will custom blend your veneers to match the color of your existing teeth, which will naturally complement your smile. Veneers can be used to repair one tooth or to enhance an entire smile. They are great for repairing small chipping, fractures, and discoloration and filling in gaps or spacing.
Cosmetic Bonding and Composite Fillings
Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that can be formed and shaped to your tooth. Because it’s so pliable, composite can be used to repair small chips or wear to your teeth. It’s also used to repair the damage caused by cavities.
Because it’s actually bonded directly to your tooth, composite restores and strengthens your tooth. It is custom blended to match your natural tooth color so no one will know that it’s there.
Whether you’d like to brighten your smile or you hope to completely change its appearance, meeting with Dr. Clarke to discuss your needs and goals is the first place to start. After he understands what you’d like to achieve for your smile, he can make the proper recommendations for procedures that will help you enjoy the smile of your dreams. You might be surprised to learn that there are multiple options available, and Dr. Clarke is happy to help you make your selection based on your lifestyle and budget.
