Cosmetic Dentistry: The Secret to a Million Dollar Smile

Ever wondered how celebrities keep their teeth in tip-top shape? Apart from stellar hygiene, celebrities know that the secret to beautiful teeth is to seek the help of a dentist who can specialize in cosmetic dentistry. If you’re living in Hollywood, Florida, Karen Gordon, DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can provide you with the most professional oral care to improve the appearance of your teeth, mouth, and of course, your smile. Though most cosmetic dentistry procedures are for cosmetic reasons only, some procedures also provide a variety of restorative benefits. Here are five of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures a family dentist Hollywood FL can provide you with:

  1.    Onlays and Inlays

Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are used on teeth that are moderately decayed without enough tooth structure for an entire filling. Inlays are placed on top of the tooth surface if there is no visible damage to the tooth cusps. If, however, the tooth cups are worn, an onlay is then used to cover the entire surface of the tooth. Both inlays and onlays are crafted from composite material in dental laboratories.

  1.       Dental Implants

If a tooth has been lost or knocked out due to injury or disease, dental implants may be used to replace them. Dental implants attach to the jawbone via a small titanium screw which is then topped off by a crown. Because of their ability to look exactly like real teeth, dental implants are indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth. They stay permanently in place, do not get loose like regular dentures, and look just like real teeth!

  1.       Teeth Whitening

Perhaps the most popular among all procedures in a family dentist Hollywood FL is teeth whitening. Easily performed at a dentist’s office, teeth whitening is often employed on teeth that is stained and damaged by smoking, drinking too much coffee or tea, and other natural reasons. Teeth whitening is performed after the teeth is cleaned of debris, tartar, and plaque.

  1.    Dental Veneers

Dental veneers, which are made from medical-grade ceramic, resolve various cosmetic problems such as crooked teeth, damaged enamel, and noticeable gaps. For better looking straight teeth, dentists attach these veneers to the front of each tooth with a strong adhesive, filling in the gaps and making sure all teeth are even. If you’re wondering how most celebrities achieve instant straight teeth, they most probably have dental veneers installed

  1.    Composite Bonding

Teeth that have been damaged, decayed, or discolored will benefit from composite bonding. Composite bonding involves drilling out the decayed part of the tooth and applying the composite material onto the surface. The family dentist Hollywood FL will then sculpt the composite into the right shape for your tooth. The composite then hardens and looks very similar to the tooth it is attached on. Cosmetic bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures around and is a perfect procedure for people who suffer from chipped, decayed, or cracked teeth.
