Cosmetic Dentistry QA

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry enhances the attractiveness of your teeth, gums, and your smile. It involves treatments and procedures that address common issues like discoloration, chipped or misshapen teeth, gaps, and more.

Dr. Tung thoroughly evaluates your smile and reviews your aesthetic goals when considering the treatments that’ll help you achieve a more attractive smile.

Which treatments are included as part of cosmetic dentistry services?

Dr. Tung offers many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures, among them:

Teeth whitening

This popular cosmetic dental procedure effectively removes stains and yellow discoloration from teeth, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile. Dr. Tung applies a bleaching agent, typically containing hydrogen peroxide, to your teeth. The bleaching agent breaks down stains and lightens your teeth by several shades.

Porcelain crowns

Porcelain crowns are custom-made, tooth-shaped caps that cover and protect damaged or weakened teeth. They’re crafted from high-quality porcelain, resembling the appearance and translucency of natural teeth. Porcelain crowns not only restore the functionality of a tooth but also enhance its appearance.

Porcelain bridges

Porcelain bridges are dental restorations that replace one or more missing teeth. They’re made of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by dental crowns attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap or by dental implants.

The porcelain used in bridges mimics the appearance of natural teeth, allowing the restoration to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Composite fillings

Composite fillings are tooth-colored and blend right into your smile. These dental restorations treat cavities and repair minor tooth damage. Unlike traditional silver fillings, composite fillings match the color of natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable. When you smile, your fillings blend right into the rest of your smile.

Who is a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

If you’re bothered by cosmetic tooth concerns, you might be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic procedures can help if you have:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Tooth discoloration or stains
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

You must have a healthy smile before undergoing cosmetic procedures. If you’ve suffered extensive tooth decay or gum disease, Dr. Tung will treat those conditions first.
