When you think of changing your appearance, you may first think of temporary changes like hair or clothing. However, fixing your smile with cosmetic dentistry can make a change that will last a lifetime. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, there are several things that we can do to give you the perfect smile. Below are just a few of the San Antonio cosmetic dentistry options we offer.
Bonding: This is often one of the easiest and least expensive ways to fix minor damage. A resin that matches the tooth color is applied to cracks or uneven areas in the tooth. It is then bonded to the tooth with heat.
Crowns: A crown is a cap that is used to protect a severely damaged tooth.
Bridges: Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. The teeth on either side are crowned, which allows them to act as anchors. The false teeth are then placed in between them and cemented into place.
Veneers: When obvious problems have been corrected, veneers are a way to create that polished smile. They are often used on single teeth that have been discolored or have worn away edges. For the perfect smile, they can be placed on all teeth to complete imperfections.
Implants: Dental implants are comprised of materials like titanium and are used to simulate the root of a real tooth. Bridges and dentures can then be placed securely by using the implant as an anchor.
San Antonio cosmetic dentistry is not simply a matter of aesthetics. Many problems with chewing and speech can be corrected through the use of modern techniques and materials. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we can repair damaged teeth in multiple ways, many of which are affordable and minimally invasive.
