3 Great Reasons To Visit The Cosmetic Dentist

A cosmetic dentist can do several amazing things to help the physical appearance, as well as the overall function, of your teeth. If you have a tooth issue of this nature, then you may want to consider going in for a visit. This article will discuss 3 great reasons to visit the cosmetic dentist

Discolored Tooth 

If you have a tooth that is discolored, this can cause you to be very self-conscious. A tooth often becomes discolored if part of the tooth is damaged or dead, or if it was severally stained. No matter what the case may be, a cosmetic dentist can help you out. They will likely begin by examining the tooth to see what the problem is. From there, they can determine if whitening the tooth or replacing the tooth is the best option. If it is a stain, then it may be able to be removed. However, if part of the tooth is dead, then they will likely grind the tooth down and then place a beautiful veneer over it. This will mimic your natural tooth, but will not have any discoloration. 

Small Tooth 

If you have a tooth that is abnormally small compared to the rest of your teeth, then a cosmetic dentist can you help you to build up this tooth so that it matches the rest of your teeth. They will begin by placing a temporary cover on the tooth just so that you can see if you like the way that it looks. From there they can make modifications so that your tooth is the perfect shape and color. The build-up itself is generally made out of composite resin, which is the same material that your tooth-colored fillings are made out of. Because it is made out of composite resin, it will be very strong and will act much like a regular tooth. 

Chipped Tooth

If you have a tooth that was chipped in an accident or otherwise broken down, then a cosmetic dentist can help you to fix this chip. For this type of repair, a composite resin type material will fill in the area that is chipped or broken off. It is hardened immediately just like a white filling and it will match the color of your current tooth perfectly. This process won't take any longer than getting a regular filling, and then once completed, no one will likely realize that it isn't your natural tooth.
