What does a cosmetic dentist do?

Cosmetic dentists can transform smiles and assist their patients in achieving the attractive looks they seek. Having healthy teeth is excellent, but if you want your teeth and gums to appear their best, a cosmetic dentist is a way to go. They provide dental cleanings, teeth whitening, teeth shaping, composite bonding, and other dental treatments. 
Cosmetic dentistry not only improves your smile but also improves your self-esteem. A cosmetic dentist can help you if your teeth are too big, too little, or crooked. They will make substantial repairs to your teeth, entirely reconstruct them, and fix them so that it appears as good as new for more dental disorders. Cosmetic dentists can also assist with discoloration caused by tea drinking, cigarette usage, etc. 
Cosmetic dentists perform the following procedures, in addition to numerous other dental treatments:

  • Teeth whitening: This process, often known as "teeth bleaching," can whiten and brighten your teeth if they have stains and discoloration. The cosmetic dentist will first cover the gums before applying a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide to the tooth's surface. After that, powerful laser light is flashed on your teeth to activate the gel and speed up the bleaching process. Teeth whitening can be performed either in the dental clinic or at home. It is critical to consult with your dentist first because everyone's teeth can not be bleached.
  • Dental veneers: For decades, dental veneers have been considered the gold standard in cosmetic dental operations. Dental veneers are custom-made from resin or porcelain composite and are intended to change the appearance of your teeth by changing the shape, color, or size once bonded in place. Veneers are suitable for patients having dark stains that do not fade with whitening, as well as shattered or broken front teeth. 
  • Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and Onlays are comprised of porcelain, gold, or composite materials used to repair broken or decayed teeth. Inlays and Onlays are now commonly manufactured in a dental laboratory and adhered to the teeth with adhesive dental cement. When the material is bonded within the center of a tooth, the filling is called an "inlay". When the filling encompasses one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface, it is called an "onlay." Inlays and Onlays give support to strengthen teeth, maintain their shape, and prevent future decay.
  • Dental implants: Dental implants are used to replace teeth that have been lost due to an extraction, accident, or other dental problems. The dentist will place a screw into your jaw to support the implant. The cosmetic dentist will insert a small titanium screw into the jaw where the missing tooth was. After adhering to the bone, the screw acts as a support for a crown. Implants blend with the natural teeth once the crown is attached to the screw. Plaque and food debris must not be allowed to collect in the area around the implant.
