Services Within Cosmetic Dentistry
Do you have embarrassing teeth stains? Talk to your dentist about it. Instead of trying DIY at-home teeth whitening treatments that can damage your enamel, discuss teeth whitening with your dentist. After your dental consultation, your dentist determines how best to get you the results that you desire. Professional teeth whitening is a lot safer for your teeth than DIY options.
Porcelain veneers serve as a shield hiding the parts of your teeth you dislike from view. Your dentist may suggest getting porcelain veneers to protect your teeth from further damage. A cracked tooth is susceptible to infections, but a porcelain veneer covers and protects it. Veneers can make your chipped, broken, cracked, or stained teeth look brand new.
For minor or moderate dental defects, your dentist may recommend dental bonding. Dental bonding may be appropriate teeth restoration after a root canal treatment. The filing is tooth-colored so that the treated tooth doesn't stand out. Teeth bonding may also help correct cracks and alter your teeth' shape.
Dental crowns fit over your natural teeth to transform them. From a broken tooth to stained teeth, dental crowns can improve the appearance and strength of your natural teeth.
Crown Lengthening Surgery
If you show a little too much gum and too little teeth when you smile, you can fix that with crown lengthening surgery. Crown lengthening surgery doesn't make your teeth longer. Rather, your cosmetic dentist in Pittsburgh, PA, removes the excess gum tissue so that more of your teeth shine through your smile.
