While having a healthy, cavity-free smile is of the utmost importance, there is something about having an aesthetically pleasing smile that also goes a long way. Even if your oral health is pristine you may find that the look of your smile is nothing to brag about. Fortunately, your Cohasset, MA family dentists Dr. Kevin Thomas and Dr. Aaron Chenette can change all that with cosmetic dentistry.
Q. What cosmetic dentistry is right for someone with missing teeth?
A. There are several options for you and the treatment you choose will depend on how severe your tooth loss is and the state of your oral health. If you are in good health and aren’t a smoker then dental implants can be a great way to replace one, several or all of your teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can also support bridges and dentures to help anchor them into place.
However, for those looking to replace teeth a little more expediently, dental bridges and dentures may be a better option for you. Talk to your Cohasset, MA dentist to learn more.
Q. What can dental veneers do for my smile?
A. These thin porcelain shells are applied to the front portion of the tooth to hide imperfections. While dental veneers aren’t designed to fix functional issues, they can improve the overall appearance of your smile so that it looks straighter, whiter and free of chips. It can even fill gaps between teeth.
Q. Are there cosmetic dentistry services that are non-invasive and more conservative?
A. Some patients don’t like the idea of having to shave down healthy teeth enamel in order to accommodate their new look. Luckily there are other treatment options that can give you the smile you want without needles, anesthesia or an invasive procedure.
For those with small chips or stains, dental reshaping and bonding allows your Cohasset dentist to apply a tooth-colored dental resin over certain areas of your tooth to help reshape and improve the look of your smile. Even though the smallest bit of enamel may need to be removed for reshaping this is completely painless and won’t require anesthesia.
There is also teeth whitening for those patients looking to get a significantly brighter smile fast. In under an hour we can get some smiles up to eight shades whiter. While minor tooth sensitivity may arise during your treatment this procedure is also completely non-invasive.
