Teeth whitening remains one of the best-known and simplest forms of cosmetic dentistry. Frequently, dentists recommend teeth whitening when teeth become stained and worn due to the effects of some foods, drinks, medications and personal habits including tobacco use.
Dental veneers are normally constructed from medical-grade ceramic, and individually created for each patient to ensure that they resemble the patient’s natural teeth. Additionally, dentists rely on veneers many cosmetic problems, including crooked teeth, damaged or cracked enamel, and unsightly gaps between teeth.
A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth. They are very effective for restoring teeth that have been infected or damaged, and help patients gain functionality without the appearance of having any dental work. Crowns can consist of all-metal, ceramic-on-metal, and all-ceramic, depending on the location in the mouth. Metal is used for durability, but ceramic has a natural appearance to match the surrounding teeth. The benefit of a crown is that it functions as a normal tooth, so you can eat and drink without discomfort, and speak normally.
The AGD strongly recommends that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning every six months. This professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.
