Cosmetic Dentistry

People in Seattle who have used cosmetic dentistry to get perfect smiles. Cosmetic dentistry will give you healthy, radiant teeth. It is one of the most a cost-effective ways to improve confidence and make you want to share your smile.

With state-of-the-art materials, and tested, trusted dental techniques, cosmetic dentistry improves appearance and enhances self-esteem. Composite fillings have replaced traditional silver colored amalgams, while gold has given way to porcelain in the creation of bridges. Other techniques like teeth whitening and veneers can improve the color and/or shape of your natural smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening, as the name implies, is a process for making your smile brighter and more attractive. The many methods of teeth whitening vary widely in application time, effectiveness, cost, and probability of tooth sensitivity.

Dental Implants

Implants may be the best option for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth. An implant is a metal post that is attached directly to the jawbone. After the bone and surrounding tissue has healed an artificial tooth is attached to the implant. Implants provide superior benefits compared to bridge work as they do not depend on neighboring teeth for structural support, although they are more expensive. Implants are the closest dental structure in durability to natural teeth and have greater cosmetic appeal.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding rebuilds chips and fills in gaps with a resin that can be colored to blend with the surrounding teeth. The bonding adheres directly to the surface of the tooth and is hardened in place with bright ultraviolet light. Cosmetic bonding is an attractive option because it:

•  is cost effective
•  looks natural
•  improves tooth shape

Cosmetic dentistry bonding may require replacement due to wear and gradual discoloration over time. For this reason some patients prefer more permanent solutions such as dental crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers. All these options should be discussed with your dentist.

Crowns

Dentists use Crowns, or 'caps', for restoring severely decayed or fractured teeth. First, the dentist removes the damaged portion of the tooth. Then, a unique mold is taken and used to manufacture a crown out of gold or porcelain to fit the healthy tooth remains almost perfectly. The crown is then fixed into place with special cement. Dental crowns help prevent the need for root canals and tooth extraction by reducing the risk of tooth fracture and tooth decay.

Bridges

Dental bridges serve to replace one or more missing teeth. First, the dentist prepares the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to receive crowns. Then, a false tooth is attached between the two crowns. Once the crown-false tooth-crown combination is cemented into place, it 'bridges' the gap left by the missing tooth. Bridges offer several benefits:

•  They look like new teeth
•  They are a durable mouth fixture
•  They prevent surrounding teeth from shifting to fill the gap
•  They restore a more natural bite and chewing ability.

For these reasons, dental bridges are a good investment compared to dentures. If a bridge is not possible, or the adjacent teeth don't need crowns, dental implants may be the best alternative.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are custom crafted porcelain laminates fitted by a dentist over the front of an existing tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, dramatically enhancing its shape, color, and appearance.
