Some recent studies have shown that a good percentage of the adult population of this country aren’t happy with the smile that they see in the mirror every day. That is somewhat surprising considering the wide range of cosmetic dental procedures that are commonly available today.
Dental inlays and onlays are used to restore teeth that have been moderately damaged by decay or have lost strength and shape because of it. A composite bonding material that can be formulated to match the color of the natural teeth is one more way to repair chips and cracks on a tooth’s surface.
A dental veneer is attached to the front of a tooth that has been chipped, cracked or severely stained, it can also be used to fill in the gaps between front teeth giving the patients a more even smile.
Teeth whitening is more popular than ever. It can be done in the dentist’s office or he can supply a custom-made system that the patient can use in the privacy of his own home. The patient will need to follow up with proper home and professional care.
Implants have given denture wearers another choice. Surgically implanted titanium posts can be inserted into the jawbone to hold the denture firmly in place and allow the patient to feel more confident in both social and business situations.
