As you consider your own dental health, you may find that reconstructive dentistry is right for you. But before you act, it is important to have some key pieces of information so you can make an informed decision.

What is Reconstructive Dentistry?

Reconstructive dentistry is an umbrella term that refers to a wide range of procedures designed to repair, replace, and improve your teeth. From a missing tooth to full mouth restoration, reconstructive dentistry is a proven and effective way to restore your smile in almost any situation. Understanding your options when it comes to reconstructive dentistry is crucial to helping you redesign your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic DentistryWithin the field of reconstructive dentistry is cosmetic dentistry. Thanks to new dental tools and technology, cosmetic dentistry has become safer and more popular than ever. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, cosmetic dentistry can help with issues like stained, broken, or uneven teeth.  

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry and can be done in the office or self-administered at home. At home, stains and discoloration can be removed in a matter of weeks; in a dentist’s office, they can be removed in a matter of hours. No matter which method you choose, teeth whitening can be truly transformative for your smile and your confidence.

3 Simple Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures That Can Improve Your Smile

While teeth whitening is certainly part of the cosmetic dentistry family, there are other innovative procedures you can choose from to improve your teeth and redesign your smile.

Veneers – If your teeth are chipped, stained, cracked, or have an extra space between them, veneers can be used to enhance your smile. The procedure can often be performed in a single office visit.

Crowns –  Also known as caps, crowns are another type of cosmetic dentistry that can restore a damaged smile.  A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is affixed on top of your natural tooth to restore the look, feel, and function. If properly cared for, crowns have the added benefit of being the longest-lasting form of cosmetic restoration.

Dental Contouring – If you have crooked or overlapping teeth, your smile can be restored with enamel shaping and contouring. This process involves removing or shaping dental enamel to restore a healthy and cosmetically pleasing appearance to your teeth. This process can also help with chipped teeth or minor bite problems and is sometimes combined with bonding.
