Transcript

  • 1. Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • 2. • If you arent very satisfied with the way that your teeth look, it might be time to consider cosmetic surgery. There was a time not too long ago that cosmetic surgery was a treatment that was left to Hollywood personas and politicians. Luckily, a lot of cosmetic dentistry is now available for everyone to enjoy. Some insurance companies even offer to cover a portion of it.
  • 3. • The most common form of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. This is often done cheaply, and can even be done by buying over the counter treatments. If you are embarrassed by a yellow tint to your teeth, or drink coffee too often, teeth whitening can solve it. The good part about tooth whitening is that its inexpensive, and highly effective. Teeth whitening can make you look years younger, and also decrease the appearance of "smokers mouth." The bad news is that tooth whitening uses bleaching agents which are actually harmful to your teeth. People have reported tooth sensitivity after getting these treatments.
  • 4. • Veneers are another form of cosmetic dentistry, and are often used to both whiten teeth and possibly fix broken teeth. Veneers, both porcelain and plastic, are used to "cap" the teeth that need to be fixed. They are perfect for teeth that are too small, chipped, yellowed or even too big. They are very expensive, however, and can cost upwards of $8,000. Insurance might not be able to pay for it, either. There are some veneers that can cost as low as $250, but they do not have a long lifespan. Veneers are not permanent, but do last around 7 years.
  • 5. • Dental bridges and implants are used to replace missing teeth. If you had a recent extraction, this is a great way to keep your mouth looking great. Implants and bridges can fall out, however. They are still the best option for missing teeth. They are relatively inexpensive, and also can make chewing easier. Many insurance companies offer some reimbursement for bridges and implants.
  • 6. • Lastly, one of the other most popular cosmetic dental surgeries available are dental caps and crowns. If you have a silver filling, dental caps can help hide them. It gives an impression of dental health, and also looks much better in photographs. This is a common practice among most dentists, and also tends to be covered by insurance.
