Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, from teeth bleaching and shaping to straightening and replacing teeth. Dr. Ralph Mazzuca, is one of Washington DC's finest cosmetic dentists. Here are six ways cosmetic dentistry can help improve your smile.
#1- Composite Bonding
Composite bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of chipped or stained teeth. Composite bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using a curing light and adhesives. Composite bonding can make your teeth look new again.
#2- Teeth Whitening
As people age, teeth can become stained, especially after consuming dark-colored beverages, smoking, or taking certain medications. Whitening methods include in-office teeth bleaching and treatments which the individual carries out at home. Professional teeth whitening treatments typically use a high concentration of peroxide for a more rapid effect.
#3- Dental Implants
Dental implants may be an option for individuals who have lost one or more teeth due to gum disease, an injury, or some other reason. Implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium. They are inserted into your jawbone to hold artificial teeth.
#4- Dental Veneers
Veneers are custom-made, ultra-thin shells designed to cover the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Your Washington DC dentist uses dental veneers to fix teeth that are stained, misaligned, worn down, chipped, broken or irregularly shaped.
#5- Dental Braces
Millions of adults have straightened their crooked smiles with orthodontic treatment. Perhaps it's time you joined them? Dental braces improve the appearance of teeth that are crowded or crooked. They can also improve an irregular bite and correct jaw positioning.
#6- Dental Crowns
Dental crowns can be made from stainless steel, all metal, all ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all resin. A dental crown is a good way to cover teeth that are stained or badly shaped. Dental crowns can also be used to protect weak teeth from breaking.
