Cosmetic dentistry, or cosmetics, enhances the appearance of your smile. It uses whitening treatments, restorations, and orthodontics to treat various problems, including discoloration, cavities, and crowding.
Consider cosmetics if you dream of having a whiter or more symmetrical smile. After reviewing your dental records and discussing your goals, your Chesterfield Dentistry provider can make treatment recommendations.
The team at Chesterfield Dentistry offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:
Veneers are thin porcelain shells bonded to the front of your tooth enamel. They cover up minor imperfections like pointed, stained, or unusually shaped teeth and restore balance to your smile.
If you use tobacco or drink coffee and have yellow or brown teeth, consider teeth whitening. The team at Chesterfield Dentistry offers both take-home teeth whitening kits and in-office teeth whitening.
ClearCorrect® is an orthodontic treatment system that uses removable aligners to straighten your teeth and jaw. The aligners are removable, so they’re easy to clean and maintain. What’s more, they’re transparent, so they blend in with your teeth.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment similar to ClearCorrect. The difference is that Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack®, an FDA-approved thermoplastic. Both types of orthodontic treatment take about the same amount of time on average.*
If you’ve lost one or more permanent teeth to extractions, poor oral hygiene, or trauma, your Chesterfield Dentistry provider might recommend dental implants. Implants are titanium posts that fuse with your jaw bone, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures.
At Chesterfield Dentistry, the team has years of experience placing and restoring dental implants.
The type of cosmetic dentistry that’s right for you depends on various factors, including your age, dental records, and goals. After discussing what you like and dislike about your smile and an oral exam, your provider develops a custom treatment plan. They’re very careful to capture your desires and deliver customized results.
