Are you ashamed of your smile because of an unsightly blemish or chip? Are your gums covering up what could be an absolutely beautiful, healthy looking smile? Do you want to straighten your crooked, misaligned teeth but don’t want to wear big, clunky, awkward metal braces? If you’re suffering from one of these issues you should discuss the benefits of cosmetic dentistry in Austin TX with your dentist. Here is a cosmetic dentistry Q&A to help give you some insight into your options.
Teeth bonding and fillings can treat a blemished or chipped tooth. Using a tooth-colored composite resin that is a biocompatible mixture of finely-ground acrylic and quartz-like particles, your dentist can cosmetically improve a blemished tooth or fill a cavity. This resin is natural-looking and provides a tight seal against oral bacteria. It’s also serves as a less invasive alternative over dental crowns or porcelain veneers.
This can be treated by performing laser gum contouring at Austin Prosthodontics. Gum contouring is usually done with a scalpel, but your dentist can provide you with a less invasive option. Using an advanced soft-tissue diode laser, your dentist can more accurately remove excessive gum tissue with minimal bleeding and absolutely no sutures afterwards.
ClearCorrect is an excellent alternative to metal braces that involves a system of clear aligners in Austin TX that gradually shift and straighten your teeth.At Austin Prosthodontics the aligners are custom-designed to fit your smile, so they can be comfortably placed over your teeth. They are made from a nearly invisible acrylic that allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth with little to no irritation. You can also remove the aligners at your convenience, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
