Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Torrance Dental Center

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a variety of services your dentist may recommend to enhance the appearance of your teeth.

If tooth decay or an injury causes you to feel dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry services can restore your smile and confidence.

Cosmetic dental procedures may include:

  • Tooth reshaping
  • Eliminating gaps in teeth
  • Repairing chips or breaks
  • Teeth whitening and bonding
  • Covering broken teeth with crowns
  • Filling cavities with tooth-colored resin

Which cosmetic dentistry services are available?

The dental team at Torrance Dental Center offer several cosmetic dental procedures:

Tooth-colored fillings

You can replace your silver fillings with tooth-colored, resin fillings for a more natural look. Your dentist places the resin composite in layers and uses a special light to harden the material throughout the procedure.

Bridges

Bridges replace missing teeth with crowns. Your dentist places crowns over the healthy teeth on each side of the missing teeth to serve as a support for the third crown.

Veneers

Veneers change the shape, color, and structure of damaged teeth with instant results. Your dentist buffs the enamel on your teeth and then bonds veneer layers to the front of each tooth. You don’t need anesthesia for the procedure.

Crowns

Your dentist may use a crown to cover a damaged tooth. The crown is custom-made to match the size and color of your natural teeth. Crowns are an effective dental protectant and offer long-term results.

Bonding

Correct the gaps in your teeth with bonding. This effective technique is a treatment for repairing chips, small fractures, or minor cavities in a tooth. Your dentist uses a special dental bonding agent to match the natural color of your tooth.

Teeth Whitening

Your dentist may recommend professional teeth whitening to enhance your smile. In-office whitening services lighten the natural color of your teeth by several shades, for a whiter, brighter smile with long-lasting results.

Which cosmetic dentistry services are right for me?

If you have concerns about the appearance of your teeth, speak with your dentist about the appropriate cosmetic dentistry options to achieve your desired results. Your dentist also discusses your expectations and reviews your medical history before recommending cosmetic procedures.

An evaluation of the health of your teeth and gums determines the right treatments for you. Your dentist may recommend one or more cosmetic dental services to restore your smile and protect your teeth from decay and damage.
