Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular dental sectors in the entire field. The reason behind this is because you can improve the look of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is considered procedures that are not required for your health, but you desire to have done to improve the look of your teeth.
For instance, you may want to have a cosmetic procedure performed if your teeth are stained and you want them to be white. Whitening procedures are a common cosmetic procedure that is performed in our La Habra office.
Cosmetic Dentistry: What Is It?
Cosmetic dentistry is best described as a field of dentistry that works to enhance the look of your smile and perfect your teeth and smile. This form of dentistry focuses on the look and function of the teeth. Any type of procedure that works to improve your smile is considered to be cosmetic in nature.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Procedures
There are many reasons why and benefits of dental procedures and why they should be performed. Of course, the most obvious benefit is that it improves the look of your teeth. You will also receive a huge boost of confidence and you will no longer feel like you need to place your hand over your mouth to hide your smile.
Many patients choose cosmetic procedures because they do not feel comfortable with their smile or the look of it. If you feel ashamed about your smile, it is time to contact Dr. Kenneth Cho Dentistry to change that.
Cosmetic Procedures We Offer in Our Office
There are many different types of cosmetic procedures that can be performed in our office and each one of the procedures will serve you differently. It is vital that you take some time to think about the procedures and also which ones you want to have performed. If you need some advice on which procedure to choose, Dr. Cho is ready to help you. Some of the most common procedures performed in our office are discussed in brief detail below.
1. Dental Implants
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option and many patients choose this option to enhance their smile and replace missing teeth. Sometimes, your teeth may fall out due to trauma, bone loss, or poor dental hygiene. When this happens, you do not want to be left with a gap, so you may be looking for tooth replacement options.
Implants are surgically placed into your jaw bone and will act as an artificial root. This root receives an abutment and then a crown to fill out your smile for you.
2. Teeth Whitening
If you have stained, discolored, or yellow teeth, you likely hide your teeth from other people. Fortunately, Dr. Cho offers Zoom whitening right here in our La Habra office and you will see results after the FIRST visit.
Teeth whitening services will allow you to brighten and whiten your smile in as little as 60 minutes. The number of treatments that you need to receive will depend on the current color of your teeth and the desired color of your teeth.
Stains can appear on your teeth for a number of reasons, so it is important to make sure that you always brush your teeth and avoid substances that cause staining such as acidic food, wine, and coffee.
Dr. Cho is also proud to offer at-home whitening services as well! Simply ask us about it today and we will provide you with the information you need.
3. Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that many patients choose because they can help correct any gaps or misalignments in your teeth and they also cover up any stains, breaks, and cracks. Veneers are cemented onto your teeth once they have been shaped.
This is a cosmetic procedure that is used when you want to cover up stains, fractures, and cracks in your tooth. The bond that is applied to your tooth is made from a resin-like material and is placed on your tooth.
5. Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are used in cosmetic procedures and they work in a couple of different ways. They can improve the look of your teeth and they also offer protection to your teeth as well. For example, if you have severe dental decay, a crown can help protect the tooth from further decay and problems later on down the road.
Risks Associated with Cosmetic Dental Procedures
As with any procedure, there are risks associated with the different cosmetic options. For example, if you have dental implants placed in your mouth, you run the risk of further bone loss and your mouth not accepting the implants. In addition, you may develop an infection, which will slow down the healing period and require additional treatment.
Since each of the procedures differ in length of recovery time, it is important that you learn about all of the possible side effects and plan accordingly. For example, dental implants can take up to six months or longer to fully heal depending on your immune system and other factors.
