Cosmetic dentistry in Parramatta, NSW can range from simple procedures to major repairs. There are multiple procedures that a dental professional can do to improve one’s smile.
Several techniques and procedures can be done to teeth that had been discoloured, cracked, chipped, misshapen, and those that are missing.
The specialist dentist can do many changes to your teeth such as close the large gaps, restore the short or worn out teeth, reshape the teeth, and change their length. There are other more common procedures that can be done on your teeth such as bonding, crowns, veneers, bleaching, contouring, and reshaping.
Such procedures are not often considered as cosmetic; they can be done to correct bite problems at times.
Crowns are also known as caps. Crowns are used as tooth cover to restore the teeth to their normal appearance and shape.
Because of the high cost, this procedure is used in cases wherein the other procedures don’t work. They are known to have the longest life span but they can be time-consuming.
Bleaching is a common and a popular chemical process that can be used to whiten teeth. There are those people who undergo this procedure to remove stains while there are also those who only desire for a whiter shade.
Discolouration of the enamel may be caused by drinking coffee, tea, coloured beverages, and cigarettes. This may also be due to heredity or due to age.
This procedure can be done by the dentist in a dental clinic or it can be performed at home through a teeth whitening kit.
Contouring and reshaping are also two procedures that can be done to correct chipped, crooked, and irregularly shaped teeth or even those teeth that overlap and they can be done in a single session.
These procedures are commonly used to correct the shape, length, size, and the positions of teeth. This can also be done to correct some bite issues.
Bonding on the other hand is that tooth-coloured material that is used for filling in tooth gaps and changing the colour of teeth. This can be done in one dental visit and may last for life. However it is susceptible to staining and chipping compared to other procedures.We have the best dental implants here in Parramatta.
This may also be used as tooth-coloured filling for filling smaller cavities. This can also be used to fill the gaps between teeth or cover the whole external surface of a tooth to have its colour and shape changed.
Veneers are the thin porcelain or plastic pieces that are put over the front teeth to have the colour and shape of the teeth changed. These are placed on teeth that have uneven surfaces or those that have been discoloured, chipped, have odd shapes, crooked, or have uneven gaps.
This procedure requires little to no anaesthesia and it can function in the same way as bonding. Veneers can also be considered as alternative to crowns which are more expensive.
