Dental procedures carried out by cosmetic dentists

Cosmetic dentists execute a variety of dental procedures in changing the appearance of a patient. Some of these procedures are highly delicate and may need the assistance of an oral surgeon.

Fitting Veneers

In cosmetic dentistry, veneers are very reliable and commonly used. They can be applied to filling small spaces between teeth. This is done by a cosmetic dentist. Since veneers are molded from a composite material, the dentist simply molds a favorable shape that will fit between the teeth and fixes it firmly with a dental cement. The veneers are designed to be a similar shade with normal teeth so that no one knows that you have a veneer. Veneers are also very effective in covering decayed and discolored teeth. They can be used to stop decay while portraying a brilliant smile.

Smile makeover

Cosmetic dentists in Los Angeles are well trained in performing smile makeovers. In a smile makeover, the cosmetic dentist looks at all the aspects of your teeth, lips, mouth and jaw structure and assesses how they will be adjusted to improve your smile. The height, arrangement, and spacing of the teeth are considered by the dentist to create the perfect teeth alignment. Tooth height can be adjusted to become longer which gives the impression of a younger smile. One of the new procedures in smile makeovers is changing the teeth to look either feminine or masculine. Cosmetic dentists also perform teeth whitening and bleaching in improving your teeth structure and look.

Dental implants

Cosmetic dentists can mount dental implants to cover the gaps left by missing teeth. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are drilled into the jawbone in order to remain firmly fixed on the oral structure. These dental implants are more durable than normal teeth which makes them convenient for cosmetic dentistry. They also have a bright sheen and are resistant to staining. Dental implants can be the solution to a bright and shining smile.
