Dental veneers are an important part of cosmetic dentistry. They offer you a good solution to help you get the look you desire. They are a preferred choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshaped teeth.
Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look.
Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material. They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve your look. Veneers are a great choice for those who want the most natural result possible. To cosmetically fix worn, stained, crooked or discolored teeth fast.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable. In addition, they are highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
Dental Crown and Bridges
Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, by a dentist or prosthodontist and can be removed by a dentist.
When a tooth is compromised by decay or damage, the crown might be a great option. This restoration, made in a lab from fine dental porcelain, will blend seamlessly with your teeth. Not only that, it will return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and sustain your all-white smile.
Generally, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of visits. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Be sure to see your dentist every six months for professional cleanings and a preventive exam.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) that attaches on one or both sides to teeth prepared with dental crowns.
If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent bridge to restore your solid smile.
A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. It can also correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
With proper care, a fixed bridge may last at least 8 to 10 years.
In cosmetic dentistry, dental bonding aims to correct many minor defects. It is also a quick and easy procedure to achieve. It refers to the procedure and the substance and can also be known as tooth bonding.
The bonding substance is a white color and is flexible as it can be applied to your teeth and be shaped in many ways. Bonding your teeth can be used to fill cavities and is also known as “composite fillings” or “white filling”. Once the substance is applied and shaped, dentists can use a special curing light to harden it.
Uses of cosmetic bonding
- Cosmetic enhancement of teeth
- Removal of the decayed part of tooth
- Prevention of cracking of teeth
- Filling of cracks, chips, and gaps in teeth
Laser Gum Surgeries
The LANAP protocol is the only laser gum disease treatment FDA cleared for True Regeneration.
Laser treatment is a tissue-preserving, regenerative, and bone-building procedure.
The Lake Forest dentist uses a laser to access an infected pocket to kill the infected tissue and bacteria. Once the infected tissue is removed and the root is exposed, the calculus is removed with an ultrasonic root cleaner instead of scraping with hand tools.
Laser treatment ensures that no tissue is subtracted or gum tissue is reduced to a lower level on purpose. It also stimulates stem cells in the tissues to form new connective tissues, bone, and collagen. The body’s healing process then regenerates the lost ligaments and bone around the tooth.
Laser treatment eliminates the bacteria in your gum pockets immediately and therefore, the inflammation caused by the infection will be reduced by up to 90% following your first session.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full-mouth reconstruction, is a term used for set of procedures designed to replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, correct improperly seated jaw joints and faulty bites, address jawbone and gum damage, replace worn-out dental work, and, in some cases, treat diseases of the mouth. Each of these reconstructive procedures may be performed independently. However, when multiple oral health problems exist, full mouth reconstruction may be advised.
The need for full mouth reconstruction is usually necessitated by:
- The loss of teeth
- Fractured or injured teeth
- Severely worn teeth
- Ongoing pain in the jaw or muscles, or ongoing headaches
A smile makeover typically consists of a combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including teeth whitening and the placement of natural looking porcelain veneers to enhance your smile.
The procedure involves removing very small pieces of the surface tooth structure to create space for the new veneers (preparing the tooth). Teeth impressions are then taken and the veneers will be manufactured based on these measurements to ensure an individual, perfect fit. Temporary veneers are fitted during the wait for the permanent veneers to be fabricated. These will then be removed once the new veneers are ready. The veneers are applied to the teeth and bonded into place using very strong adhesive.
Teeth whitening is a fairly straightforward procedure. It’s a purely cosmetic procedure that people will want for the sake of changing the appearance of their teeth. Many people develop teeth that have a yellow or brown appearance. The teeth whitening procedure helps to give teeth a brighter color. This is a procedure that can eliminate the stains that will sometimes develop on a person’s teeth. Some people will want their teeth to be bright white. Other people will want a more natural color, but they’ll still want to eliminate the stains that have developed on their teeth. One way or another, it is possible to get people to that point through the right dental whitening procedures.
Basic Procedures Behind Teeth Whitening
There are actually many different ways to whiten a person’s teeth. Some of these procedures will more or less eliminate the stains on the teeth. Others will bleach the teeth, making them even whiter than they would be otherwise. Some people will use home remedies in order to whiten their teeth. However, it’s important to note that many of these home remedies will not offer permanent solutions. People will have to keep on applying them on a regular basis in order to get any results. Many home remedies will not even work at all.
In the context of professional cosmetic dentistry, people will typically get their teeth whitened through the use of a professional whitening gel. The whitening gel will manage to hide stains and different forms of discoloration. Some people will get dental veneers in order to create the appearance of a whiter smile. However, procedures associated with teeth whitening are typically a lot easier to perform.
There are some more experimental treatments associated with teeth whitening these days. Some of these treatments will involve LED lights or laser lights. However, for the most part, the classic treatments involving the right whitening gels will work well enough, and people have gotten proven results with them over and over again. The treatments that people will get at the dentist will typically be more concentrated than most others, which is one of the reasons why people will almost always get better results if they decide to get their teeth whitened at the dentist
