Cosmetic dentistry is a restorative practice that deals with the aesthetics of the mouth. With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Toschi can help you get rid of dark teeth and gums, gummy smile, corroded and fractured teeth, and misalignment.
Teeth Whitening is the most common cosmetic procedure that is used to restore the aesthetics of the mouth. The mineral structure of the teeth wears out and the enamel becomes porous with time. Discoloration and stains fade the luster from the smile.
An oxidizing gel is applied onto teeth and a blue laser light is used to activate the chemicals in it. The oxidizing agents enter the enamel and break down the stains to give you a lustrous smile. Teeth whitening can break down both intrinsic and extrinsic stains. It is of two types:
- Vital Whitening
- Non-Vital Whitening
Cosmetic dentistry provides other services like:
Tooth-colored fillings improve the aesthetics and strength of teeth. They are an alternative to the metal fillings and make the teeth appear and function naturally.
These wafer-thin shells fit over the enamel snugly and restore the natural appearance of chipped and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers mimic the light reflecting a property of the natural teeth and cannot be distinguished from the adjacent teeth.
Porcelain Crowns and Bridge
Crowns and Bridges are used to correct heavily damaged teeth. They mask shape and color related imperfections. When cemented onto the teeth, they cup the damaged portion and strengthen weak teeth. Crowns fix a single tooth while bridges fix multiple missing teeth.
Cosmetic Gum Surgery
Minor gum surgery can reshape the gum tissues and make them more leveled or aligned. Gummy smiles can be treated with a minor surgical procedure.
