It’s actually easier to get your dream smile than you may think.
Cosmetic dentistry is truly amazing. When someone is sick and tired of stains, chips and other unsightly imperfections that keep them from feeling confident in their smiles, our Bellevue, WA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kianoosh Behshid, can turn that all around. We have highlighted some of the popular cosmetic dentistry options we have to offer.
For minor dental flaws such as small chips, discolorations, gaps or uneven teeth, dental bonding might be the right choice for you. By applying and shaping a tooth-colored material over these imperfections and then hardening it into place, our Bellevue dentist can easily and non-invasively change the shape or color of one or more teeth. Bonding also doesn’t require drilling or anesthesia, which is a major asset for those who are more anxious about getting dental treatment.
Implants and Bridges
If you are dealing with a severely weakened tooth or even a missing tooth, you may be weighing the pros and cons of different treatment options. Dental implants can be an amazing way to replace a missing tooth. However, needing surgery, the financial expense and other factors can make implants not right for everyone. Instead, dental bridges can be a great way to fill that gap left over by your missing tooth or teeth.
If you are dealing with a cavity, the most important thing you can do is seek treatment right away so the cavity doesn’t get worse. The same tooth-colored material we use for bonding will also be used to fill a tooth once the cavity has been removed. This is a common restorative procedure and one that can be done quickly and painlessly through the help of local anesthesia to numb the area prior to getting your filling.
Think about how challenging it can be sometimes to try and get those back teeth super clean. All you have to do is take a look at your molars and you will see all those nooks and crannies on the chewing surfaces where food and plaque could easily get trapped. To give your back teeth a little additional protection, our Bellevue general dentist may recommend dental sealants to cover and protect the chewing surfaces from decay using a tooth-colored seal. Children and teens are most likely to benefit from this preventive dentistry procedure.
