Although preventive dentistry seeks to preserve your smile and restorative dentistry seeks to treat existing dental and gum health issues, cosmetic dentistry is focused solely on enhancing the appearance of your smile.
That said, some cosmetic treatments also serve a restorative function. Prosthodontic treatments replace missing teeth, but they also go a long way toward helping your smile look its best.
Never before have there been so many high-quality options when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. In many ways, choosing an approach is sometimes the hardest part of the process.
If you’re searching for an affordable way to beautify your smile, dental bonding might be a great fit. This treatment uses a special resin or plastic material to seal off areas of decay, reshape chipped or cracked teeth, and improve discoloration.
Bonding can also lengthen teeth to help them blend in your smile or protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums. It can also close gaps between teeth without the need for orthodontia.
The bonding material is carefully “painted” onto the surface of your natural tooth. A special light hardens the material before Dr. Lebovics polishes it to a sheen.
One reason dental bonding is so popular is that the treatment allows you to improve the appearance of your smile without having to remove a portion of your natural tooth tissue, which is a necessity in getting dental veneers or crowns.
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment. Dr. Lebovics offers in-office professional whitening, or you can request an at-home, tray-based system to brighten the shade of your smile.
Dental veneers are a great way to achieve impressive improvements with just a few in-office visits. Veneers are thin “shells” of sculpted porcelain that fit directly over the surface of your teeth and can transform the shape, size, alignment, and color of your teeth.
Custom crowns are also a great cosmetic option, especially if you only need to address an issue with one or two individual teeth. Crowns are crafted to blend with the surrounding teeth, and they cover all visible areas of a treated tooth.
