Cosmetic Procedures at Ygnacio Dental & Orthodontics
Cosmetic dentistry is composed of a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from minor fixes to major surgeries.
This is one of the most standard cosmetic dental treatments. The teeth become stained or discolored due to smoking, tobacco use, and colorful foods and drinks intake. Tooth whitening is an affordable treatment that can whiten the teeth eight times brighter than their previous color.
They are thin plastic shells made from resin, ceramic, or porcelain. They can be designed to match the neighboring teeth of a patient. Veneers can conceal numerous cosmetic imperfections, such as cracks, chips, fractured enamel, and gaps between teeth.
These tooth-shaped caps can be secured over a damaged or decayed tooth. A crown helps keep a compromised tooth from cracking or hides a stained or misshaped tooth.
Implants help replace lost teeth due to injury or decay. It consists of a titanium root fixed and allowed to fuse into the jawbone. Once the dental implant is attached correctly, a crown is secured on its top to match the existing natural teeth.
Dental bondings can help repair minor cosmetic dental problems such as cracks, chips, or misshapen teeth. Bondings are composed of a putty-like tooth-colored material that is hardened with a special light.
