Cosmetic Dentistry in Lehi, UT
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
While the primary goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of the patient’s teeth, it has a range of other benefits. Here are a few of them:
Improved self-confidence: Many people who are unhappy with the way their smile looks will hide it and feel insecure. Having a smile you love helps you feel beautiful and lets you shine in your social life.
Improved oral health: Cosmetic treatments often repair oral health issues like crooked, cracked, or decayed teeth. Tooth crowns, or “tooth caps,” prevent further deterioration of damaged teeth and dental implants protect the gums and bones from further damage caused by missing teeth.
Effects that last: Unlike other types of cosmetic treatments, cosmetic dentistry has effects that usually last longer than a decade. That’s ten or more years of beautiful smiles after a single procedure! (Of course, diligent oral hygiene and regular dental visits are still needed to maintain it.)
Short recovery: Many surgeries and procedures in medicine require recovery times, including some dental procedures like root canal therapy and wisdom teeth removal. However, most cosmetic dental care treatments require minimal or no recovery time, allowing you to resume eating and drinking like normal within a few days or less.
Which Problems Does Cosmetic Dentistry Solve?
Cosmetic dentistry can correct a wide range of dental problems. It often overlaps to some degree with orthodontic treatment or restorative dentistry. At Vero Dental, we regularly treat patients for:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Short teeth
Cosmetic Procedures Offered at Vero Dental
Porcelain Veneers : Dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells affixed to the front surface of a tooth or of several teeth to improve your smile’s appearance. Veneers can also treat teeth that are badly stained, chipped or cracked, unevenly spaced, or have worn enamel.
Dental Crowns : Tooth crowns, also known as caps, are made from tooth-colored materials and are used to restore the appearance of one or more teeth for a beautiful smile. A dental crown will look and feel like your other teeth, but won’t be removed for cleaning or eating like dentures or dental bridgework. Tooth caps are placed directly over the top of damaged teeth for improved look and function.
Teeth Whitening : The white enamel on teeth wears down over time causing teeth to become stained or discolored. Professional teeth whitening is a quick, noninvasive way to achieve a brighter, whiter smile. We also provide professional teeth whitening kits to use at home.
Dental Bonding : Dental bonding is a simple procedure where a composite resin material is bonded to a tooth’s surface. Similar to a filling, tooth bonding can restore a tooth’s overall appearance or repair cracks, chips, and uneven color.
Invisalign Clear Braces : Invisalign uses clear retainers to straighten your smile without the need for brackets or wires like traditional braces—no molds or impressions necessary! The retainers are virtually invisible, and you only remove them to eat or brush your teeth.
Gum Contouring : Also known as gingival sculpting, gum lasering, or gingival contouring, this treatment reshapes the gums and removes excess tissue for a symmetrical gum line and a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
