Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care that works to improve the aesthetic appearance of your gums, teeth, smile, and lips. Cosmetic dentistry treatments usually aren’t necessary to improve your oral health, but they can boost your self-confidence and self-esteem.

If you regularly find yourself covering your mouth when you laugh or smile, or you always compare the color, condition, and appearance of your teeth to others, cosmetic dentistry is worth considering. 

Are there different types of cosmetic dentistry?

The caring team at Park Avenue Cosmetic Dentistry offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges are two common oral prosthetics. A crown is a tooth-shaped covering that your dentist places on top of a chipped, cracked, or decaying tooth. It preserves your tooth and improves your biting and chewing abilities.

Bridges are prosthetics used to fill a gap in your smile. A bridge features a false tooth and two crowns. Your dentist bonds the two crowns to your natural teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth fills the gap, restoring your smile to its healthy, near-original condition. 

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatment is a cosmetic dentistry treatment used to eradicate stains and discolorations from the surface of your teeth. At Park Avenue Cosmetic Dentistry, the providers offer two types of teeth whitening: take-home whitening trays and chairside whitening. While teeth whitening treatment isn’t permanent, it can brighten your teeth for 4-6 months at a time.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a type of oral prosthetic that act as replacement tooth roots. Your Park Avenue Cosmetic Dentistry provider surgically places a series of small metal posts in the spots your teeth used to be.

Following surgery, you go home to recover. During this time, your bone grows around each implant, fusing them to your jaw. After your jawbone heals, your dentist completes your new smile by securing a crown, bridge, or dentures to your implants. 

Invisalign®

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually straighten and move your teeth into position. There are no brackets, rubber bands, or wires involved. You don’t have to worry about food restrictions because you can remove your Invisalign aligners whenever you eat.

What type of cosmetic dentistry will I most benefit from?

To determine the type of cosmetic dentistry you’ll benefit most from, request an appointment at Park Avenue Cosmetic Dentistry. 

Following a review of your medical history, discussion of your goals for treatment, and a thorough oral exam, your provider can make recommendations that align with your individual needs. 

Everyone deserves to feel confident about their teeth and smile. Make a cosmetic dentistry appointment at Park Avenue Cosmetic Dentistry by calling the office or using the online booking tool today.
