How to Use Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Achieve a Gleaming Smile?

A set of perfect teeth adds to the beauty of a smile. However, at times the appearance of your teeth, bite, and gums may need a boost to make your smile perfect.

Today, there are several cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you gain that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Here are some cosmetic dentistry procedures recommended by Dr. Justin Le, DDS, at El Paseo Dental Care in San Jose and Hayward, California.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Discolored, crooked, or chipped teeth may make you feel less confident about your appearance or affect your quality of life. For instance, reports say that bad teeth prevent otherwise qualified candidates from getting hired or promoted.

Although its major focus is smile improvement, by repairing weak teeth, enhancing your bite, and allowing better oral hygiene, cosmetic dentistry also prevents dental problems.

Some of the Best Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Here are some popular cosmetic dental treatments that have helped millions achieve their smile goals:

  • Teeth Whitening

Lifestyle and dietary choices such as smoking, chewing tobacco, and drinking coffee or tea contribute to teeth discoloration.

Cosmetic teeth whitening can be done at home or at your dentist’s office. An in-office procedure involves placing a whitening agent with 25-40% hydrogen peroxide on your teeth. Your dentist will then expose this gel to a heating lamp for a certain time. 

Dentists can also offer you custom-made molded whitening trays for DIY touch-ups at home. 

  • Dental Bonding

Ideal for teeth gaps or chips, dental bonding is a simple and quick cosmetic dental procedure that offers great results. Your dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite material to your teeth to fill in the missing spaces. This is then shaped and hardened using UV light.

  • Veneers 

Custom-designed porcelain veneers are incredibly useful to hide uneven spacing, discoloration, broken, or chipped teeth. Wafer-thin, they fit over the front surface of your teeth to make your smile look straighter and even-shaped.

  • Tooth Contouring 

Also known as enamel shaping, this minimally-invasive procedure is used to correct overlapping, chipped, and crooked teeth. It is a simple procedure that involves using a drill or laser to remove extra enamel and even out your smile.
