Aesthetic dentistry is where science and art combine in dental treatment. Rather than being a specific discipline or type of treatment, it embraces all the dental treatment disciplines with the aim of creating the best outcome for the patient, from an aesthetic, functional and biological perspective. It is an individualized treatment where your dental problem is looked at and you are provided with the optimum solution for your dental health and function, whilst at the same time achieving a beautiful and natural appearance. The goal is to recreate how your teeth would be if you did not have dental problems and your teeth and gums were in ideal condition. This is not the same as cosmetic dentistry, which strictly speaking involves changing simply the appearance of your teeth.
What Are Some Of Aesthetic Dentistry Services?
- Poor quality crown and bridgework – this can be fixed with dental implants, crowns and veneers, gum and bone rebuilding. You may have an unattractive poor quality crown and bridgework, maybe even missing some teeth but after root treatments, dental implants, gum and bone rebuilding, new porcelain crowns and some porcelain veneers it is possible to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking result. You can finally have the smile you have always wanted and individual teeth that look and feel entirely natural.
- Gum recession; poor quality fillings, crowns and bridges – this can be fixed with root coverage, gum rebuilding, tooth whitening, composite fillings, dental implants and crowns. You may have gum recession and some poor quality old fillings, crowns and bridges that are now defective. You may be unhappy with the look of your teeth and smile and want to improve both the condition and appearance of your teeth and gums. You may even be experiencing discomfort from poor quality bridgework and sensitivity from exposed roots where the gums have receded. With aesthetic dentistry you can achieve an amazing result by replacing your old fillings with new tooth-coloured fillings and replacing your old crowns with new high quality crowns. The treatment can make the whole area far more comfortable and much easier to clean and it can make it easier to brush and floss normally. The gum recession can also be corrected by root coverage and tissue grafting and your teeth can be brightened up with some tooth whitening. It’s an excellent example of how inter-disciplinary treatment can optimise both condition and aesthetics.
- Uneven gum line and worn discoloured teeth – the solution to this is gum reshaping and porcelain veneers. Your smile may be compromised by an uneven gum line and worn, discoloured teeth but a beautiful result can be achieved by reshaping the gums and restoring your teeth with porcelain veneers.
There is a wide and extensive range of aesthetic dentistry available but before undergoing any treatments you want to be sure that you choose a professional dentist with qualifications and experience with the surgery or treatments that you wish to undergo. After you do this you are well on your way to that Hollywood smile.
