1. What kinds of cosmetic dentistry do you offer and how does each service work?
The most common procedure of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. This is the process of bleaching the teeth to remove stains caused from eating, drinking or smoking.
Veneers are another common procedure in cosmetic density. These are composite or porcelain laminates that are bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips, cracks or gaps. Veneers will also improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration.
Dental implants, which are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss, can also improve your smile drastically. Dental implants are most suitable for a patient who has one or many missing teeth.
