What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Simply put, cosmetic dentistry is the combination of techniques that are designed to enhance and beautify the teeth and smile. Many cosmetic flaws are addressed with dental procedures that also ensure greater function, such as replacement of a lost tooth with a bridge or implant. Some procedures are more strictly cosmetic in nature, such as teeth whitening or dental bonding.
Who can Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?
Many patients may not realize just how many flaws can be addressed with cosmetic dentistry. From simple teeth whitening, all the way to a complete smile makeovers, Northborough, MA cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Jacob Stein is sure to have you smiling at everyone you meet. Here is a little about some of the cosmetic dentistry services you can take advantage of from Dr. Jacob Stein:
We offer the Glo in-office and home whitening system, known for no-to-low teeth sensitivity. This teeth whitening procedure uses a blue light to gain the maximum benefit from your teeth whitening gel. The in-office procedure can be followed up/maintained withd Glo for at-home use. The at-home kit uses whitening trays and bleaching gel like other at-home kits, but has the added benefit of a blue light so you can have accelerated whitening right at home.
Also known as dental veneers, porcelain laminates are custom made to be bonded right to the front sides of teeth, offering patients a way to mask many types of dental flaws. Chips, cracks, big spaces or gaps, stains that teeth whitening can’t improve, teeth of uneven length, and other flaws can be completely altered in appearance. Sometimes veneers are also referred to as instant orthodontia, as some misalignments can also be remedied.
Porcelain dental crowns, inlays, and onlays:
When a tooth has sustained a lot of damage or has a lot of decay or old, dark fillings to replace, dental crowns, inlays, and onlays are sometimes the best treatments. Porcelain dental crowns cover the whole visible part of the tooth, protecting weakened teeth from more damage. Inlays and onlays repair damage and replace old fillings that cover a large portion of the top of the molar. An inlay rests inside the area of the tooth while an onlay may cover and/or replace one of the grinding points of the molar.
For lost teeth, we offer many choices in tooth replacement. Bridges, dentures, removable dental prosthetics, and dental implants are all available from Dr. Jacob Stein. A consultation will be necessary to determine which procedure is right for you.
