Cosmetic dentistry is the process of improving the visual appearance of teeth by performing a variety of dental procedures. With the advances in dental technology over the last two decades the standard and availability of cosmetic dentistry has greatly increased. There are now cosmetic dental treatments available for almost every kind of dental issue meaning that everyone can now have healthy and aesthetically pleasing teeth.
One of the most important factors in the cosmetic appearance of teeth is their colour. Even the straightest and most well proportioned teeth in the world can look unhealthy if they are badly discoloured. Tooth discolouration is a natural process that happens to us all as we get older. Just as our hair loses its natural colour and goes grey, so do our teeth which lose their white appearance. Tooth whitening procedures are able to prevent this discolouration and even reverse it by as much as ten shades. Whitening procedures are always increasing in effectiveness with some of the latest products offering greatly reduced treatment time. Whitening is one of the most effective cosmetic dental practises and because of its affordability it is also one of the most widely practised.
Other common cosmetic complaints are chipped, cracked or broken teeth. Even the smallest break or damage can ruin the cosmetic appearance of teeth not to mention be very painful and cause further dental complications. Damaged teeth can be repaired by using the latest in porcelain crown and veneer technology. Thanks to the advent of digital x-rays and computer aided manufacture, ceramic dental repairs cab now be fabricated in a fraction of the time it took in the past. Porcelain veneers can be milled from a single block in as little as six minutes. For patients with discoloured or worn teeth, whole dental arcs can be replaced with veneers to completely restore the appearance of healthy teeth.
Other cosmetic procedures include constructing dental bridges and implants to artificially replace missing teeth. Again, with the advent of new technologies these procedures have improved greatly both in effectiveness and quality.
