Restoring a patient’s smile is easy with today’s advances in cosmetic dentistry. Whether patients have had bad oral hygiene routines in the past or were born with problem teeth, Dr. A is able to offer a wide variety of services in order to address a number of conditions and issues that patients may complain about. Not everything he does is to improve functionality of the teeth or help patients avoid pain. With cosmetic dentistry, improving the look of the smile is just as important.

There are a variety of procedures and services offered at Dr. A’s practice that focus on the aspect of restoring a patient’s smile.

Dental Filling

Fillings are used to address cavities. They can be either tooth-colored dental bonding or silver amalgam fillings that can appeal to those looking for a cosmetic alternative. Composite bonded fillings are often the most requested as they can blend in with the color of the patient’s tooth.

Crowns and Bridges

When teeth go missing or need to be protected, crowns and bridges are often the go-to method to restoring smiles and protecting teeth. Crowns are made to look like the rest of the patient’s teeth, and are bonded over teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken. They are also used over dental implants as a restoration for missing teeth. Bridges are used to replace missing natural teeth, and are also made to match the patient’s existing smile.

Dental Bonding

Dental composite bonding can be used to reshape a tooth and repair a chipped or broken tooth. It is a clay-like material that is shaped over the tooth and then activated to harden into place.

Preventing the need for restorative dentistry is important. Reducing the likelihood of cavities in both children and adults can help reduce the need for restorations. Children and adults are both educated on ways to improve their oral hygiene, and are recommended to visit Dr. A for bi-annual cleanings and check-ups. For younger patients, Dr. A will often recommend fluoride treatments and sealants to prevent cavities and ensure protection of the teeth.
