What is Cosmetic Dentistry and Can it Help My Smile?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty that makes your smile brilliant. An even set of pearly whites can help you look more attractive and give you more confidence. On the other hand, if you have spaces between your teeth, missing teeth, chipped teeth, stained teeth, and uneven or buck teeth, you may be wary of smiling.

Modern dentistry has come a long way with recent technological advancements in terms of diagnosis, materials used, and time saved in many cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is also called esthetic dentistry or smile makeover since the main target is to give you a set of white, even, gleaming teeth by repairing or improving on what nature has given you. Cosmetic dentistry is popular among people who want to improve their facial features.

What are the Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures that can Help Your Smile?

There are a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve your smile, such as:

Teeth whitening – if your teeth are only discolored or stained, then cosmetic dentistry uses various techniques to remove the stains. The main objective is removing the stains.

For more acute discoloring, in office teeth whitening may be necessary at first. For less advanced discoloring, Dr. Ferullo will make a custom tray for your teeth and give you a cleaning solution along with instructions on their use. Our office offers free teeth whitening to our clients who sign our Whitening for Life contract

Dental Bonding for chipped and damaged teeth, bonding is a good option. The dentist can repair teeth with this flexible resin material that is the same color as your teeth. It is hardened using ultraviolet or lasers. Dental bonding in St. Petersburg can also be used to fill up gaps between teeth.

Dental Veneers – porcelain or ceramic veneers are a covering used in cosmetic dentistry to make teeth smoother and whiter and also solve problems like cracked and damaged teeth, and even gaps between teeth. The veneers are stuck with special adhesive to the teeth. You can opt for dental veneers in St. Petersburg at our office.

Inlays and Onlays – also known as indirect fillings, these are used when there is not enough tooth left to support a traditional filling. Various substances (usually composite resins or porcelain) can be used to fill the teeth. When the material is used as a filling it is called an inlay and when it is used on the tooth surface, it is called onlay.

Dental Crowns or Caps – these completely cover a tooth in case of root canal, when a tooth is broken,  discolored or misshapen, or to cover a dental implant. Dental crowns in St. Petersburg are made of metal, metal fused with porcelain, ceramic or resin
