Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is designed to help reshape, brighten, and mold your teeth to create your desired look. It’s meant for individuals who want to change and improve the look of their teeth. The goal of cosmetic dental procedures is to:

  • Whiten teeth
  • Straighten teeth
  • Lengthen teeth
  • Correct misaligned or misshapen teeth
  • Close teeth gaps
  • Restore cracked, chipped, or missing teeth

 

There are a number of different cosmetic dental treatment options to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

What are cosmetic dental treatments?

There are several cosmetic dental treatments to choose from, depending on what you want to correct in your smile, such as:

Dental veneers

Veneers are tooth-colored porcelain or resin shells that fit over your natural teeth to cover up imperfections, such as:

  • Yellow stains
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Tooth gaps

 

Cemented to the front of your teeth, veneers require Dr. Day to remove about a half-millimeter of enamel, allowing them to adhere properly. Because this layer of enamel must be removed, veneers are a permanent solution to reshape your smile.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic treatment in dentistry, and it’s one of the least expensive ways to professionally improve your smile. How much you spend depends entirely on which teeth you want to whiten. You can whiten your upper teeth, lower teeth, or both. At Austin Smiles by Day, your custom whitening splints are ready for pickup, so you can easily whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. Thanks to these custom at-home whitening kits, you can have a professional smile in just about two weeks.

Dental bonding

Like dental veneers, dental bonding is designed specifically to change the look, shape, length, and feel of your natural teeth. Dr. Day may recommend dental bonding if you suffer from:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Yellow stains or discolored teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

 

During the procedure, Dr. Day will apply a bonding liquid to your teeth. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is then applied to your teeth and shaped to create the desired shape and length. After the resin is set and dried, Dr. Day will trim and polish the material until it looks exactly like your natural teeth.

Smile makeover

A combination of several different treatments, a smile makeover is designed for those who want to improve their smiles in various ways. This might mean straightening and whitening your teeth, or lengthening short teeth and restoring missing teeth. Some of the treatments involved in a smile makeover often include:

  • Dental veneers
  • Dental bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants
