These days, dentistry provides much more than teeth cleaning, cavity filling and root canals. Now there are several treatments and procedures that are available to enhance the appearance of your teeth and improve your smile. With the latest procedures you can fix gaps, remove stains and also correct several oral related problems. Dentistry mainly involves preventing tooth decay. A cosmetic dentist can also assist you in achieving a healthy smile through a few additional treatments.

  • A dental implant is basically a titanium fake tooth which is surgically anchored in the jawbone. They are used as permanent substitutes for missing teeth. For replacing a tooth, a dental implant is often a good long term option providing you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.
  • Cosmetic bonding is a method which is suitable for filling small gaps and chips between the teeth. In this process, the dentist applies a dental composite or an enamel type of resin over the surface of your teeth in order to create the required shape, colour and size. Bonding is perfect for filling the gaps between your teeth to overcome a gappy smile.
  • Crowns and Bridges are mostly used to fill areas that have missing teeth. They greatly help to improve the look of the affected area and restore the bite. Crowns are commonly used to restore the appearance and functionality of damaged teeth.
