Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Strictly speaking, cosmetic dentistry includes any procedure that creates a positive change in your teeth and smile. You’ll find a wide variety of cosmetic services available at PCD, including:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Metal-free, tooth-colored fillings
  • Invisalign®
  • Dental implants

While these services add beauty to your smile, many also improve functionality and protect your oral health. Teeth straightened with a system like Invisalign, for instance, are easier to clean and have fewer gaps that encourage bacterial overgrowth. This option can contribute to better oral health.

What are porcelain veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that your dentist bonds to the front surface of your teeth. They’re used to treat chipped, broken, misshapen, and stained teeth. They can also fill small gaps between your teeth and correct sizing of smaller than average teeth.

The experts at PCD prefer porcelain veneers because of their durability and near-perfect resemblance to natural teeth.

You may only require one veneer to repair a broken or chipped tooth. Very often, however, individuals choose to have 6-8 veneers applied to create an even, symmetrical smile. Your PCD professional will help you select the best course for your smile expectations.

What can crowns do?

Dental crowns are caps or replacements for the visible portion of your teeth. Your dentist may recommend a crown to:

  • Support a tooth weakened by a large filling
  • Cover a severely chipped or cracked tooth
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Hold a dental bridge in place

Restore the appearance of abnormally shaped or severely stained teeth
When prepped and placed by an expert, you may find it difficult to see any difference between a crown and your natural teeth.

With traditional crowns, it can take several office visits to prep the targeted tooth, create a mold for the crown, and then fit the permanent crown in place. PCD offers same-day crowns for your convenience.
