Cosmetic dentistry Auckland has become common these days and more and more people of different age regardless of sex turn to this in order to improve or enhance their smiles. This type of dentistry is a type of dental work that is done to improve the appearance of teeth and even gums and we can find plenty of cosmetic dentists these days.
A cosmetic dentist can perform an array of procedures in order to enhance or improve smiles and these can range from simple and easy procedures to extensive and more comprehensive repairs. As such these procedures involve fixing misshapen, chipped, missing or discolored teeth, by reshaping, closing spaces or gaps, restoring short or worn teeth and altering lengths. Other procedures being applied by cosmetic dentists are bleaching, veneers, contouring, reshaping and bonding.
A factor to consider is that despite the recognition of these procedures as cosmetic, they can also assist in improving dental conditions such as bite conditions which can affect eating ability as well as speech. The major problem that many people have are stained teeth as well as gaping or spaced out teeth. Cosmetic dentistry Auckland can deal with such problems through bleaching and bonding. Stains that are caused by tea, coffee, smoking, and medication can be removed with bleach applied at the dentist's office or by prescribed home treatments. In order to fill in gaps or spaces, the tooth-colored material is inserted to fill in called bonding, however, this method of treatment can be stained and even chipped easily.
Crowns and even caps are also used in cosmetic dentistry and this can help teeth be restored to their normal shape or appearance. Unfortunately, crowns can quite expensive and are not often opted. In place of this, veneers are used as they are a cheaper alternative. Plastic or porcelain materials are applied over the teeth in order to change the shape and color. The cosmetic dentist will first take an impression of our teeth in order to make an even that is custom made to fit onto the teeth and they can last longer than bonding and the color won't fade as well.
Cosmetic dentistry Auckland may be somewhat costly compared to ordinary dental services, but they are also effective and well sought.
