Your oral health is affected by a beautiful smile or a lack thereof. Self-confidence and the way the world sees you from the outside can also be affected. A person’s smile is often the first thing that people notice about them. Cosmetic dentistry can be the answer you are looking for.

There are many options for fixing a smile depending on what you want. An unhappy smile can be caused by many things. Tooth discoloration, gaps, and crowding are some of the most common reasons for unhappy smiles. These concerns can beaddressed and corrected by cosmetic dentistry.

With offices in Miramar and Lighthouse Point, our team is ready to handle any and all of your dental needs. Read below to learn what types of procedures are available to give you the smile you always wanted.

Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that addresses many concerns.

Dental veneers can be a great way to enhance your smile. Veneers are thin covers that are placed on the front (visible part) of the tooth. They look just like natural teeth. You can use veneers to fix a variety of dental problems. Teeth that are stained, chipped, worn, or crooked can all be fixed with veneers. Gaps, crowding, and uneven teeth can also be fixed with this process.

Veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin material. Your dentist can help you decide which material is right for you. Each type of veneer offers its own advantages. Porcelain veneers are natural-looking, long-lasting, and do not stain easily. Composite resin veneers are less expensive. And while they are not as wear resistant as porcelain, they can be repaired easily with less expense.

Dental implants give you a smile that lasts a lifetime.

Dental implants are replacement roots for teeth. Implants are a solid foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. They can be made to match your natural teeth.

Implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants fuse with bone to become permanent. Dental implants remove the embarrassment of having to take out dentures and the need for messy adhesives that will keep them in place.

Dental implants are extremely comfortable and secure. The titanium implant fixture is attached to the jawbone by your dentist. This creates a strong, durable anchor for your new teeth. It prevents any movement or slippage that can sometimes occur with dentures. Dental implants can be a reliable option to replace teeth that have been lost due to injury, decay, periodontal disease, or any other reason.

Dental Crowns.

Dental crowns are caps that are placed over damaged teeth. Crowns can be used to cover, protect, and restore the form of your teeth when fillings fail. Dental crowns are made from metals, porcelains, resins, and ceramics. They don’t usually require any special care other than good oral hygiene.

Dental crowns typically last between 5 and 15 years. The amount of wear and tear a crown has to endure and your oral hygiene habits can affect its lifespan.

There are many reasons why you might need a crown, such as:
● Covering a dental implant.
● Covering a root canal.
● Protecting weak teeth from cracking or keeping them together if they are broken.
● To restore a damaged tooth or severely worn-down teeth.
● If a large filling is used to cover and support a tooth.
● Holding a dental crown in place.
● Covering severely discolored or misshapen teeth.

Bridges.

Dental bridges are used to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. This cosmetic dentistry option lasts between five and fifteen years, sometimes even longer. A fixed bridge can last over 10 years if it is maintained with good oral hygiene and regular checkups.

A bridge is composed of two or more crowns to cover the tooth/teeth on either end of the gap. These anchoring teeth, also known as abutment teeth, house the replacement tooth/teeth between the gaps. These false teeth, also known as pontics, can be made of gold, alloys or porcelain, or any combination thereof. Implants or natural teeth can support dental bridges.

Choosing this procedure will restore your smile as well as maintain a healthy facial structure. They will also prevent your teeth from “floating” which happens when there is a gap between your teeth. They will also allow for even distribution of bite force which reduces the pressures and strains on the rest of your teeth.

Teeth whitening.

A beautiful smile can be as easier than you think. Teeth whitening is safe, affordable, and effective. Our professional teeth whitening service produces brilliant results in just one hour. It is a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that allows us to give South Florida residents a brilliant smile.

There are many products and treatments that can be used at home to whiten teeth. These include strips, whitening toothpaste, kits, and special whitening lights. Although these products and treatments can be simple and quick, they are not as safe and effective as in-office whitening. This is especially true for sensitive or severely discolored teeth. Tooth whitening can lead to tooth sensitivity and even damage of the roots. If you are whitening at home, you may not recognize these problems and can make them worse.

Professional teeth bleaching is superior to DIY methods. In-office teeth whitening results are dramatic and quick. Teeth can be made up to 8 shades whiter depending on how severe the discoloration is. At-home solutions require that you use a product for several weeks to see even gradual results.

Professional teeth whitening is safer than home whitening using over-the-counter products. Sensitive teeth are a sign that you may have a serious problem. Cosmetic dentists are trained to recognize signs and symptoms and damage to the tooth roots and sensitive teeth.
