Cosmetic Dentistry is used to improve the appearance of teeth. Dr. Jack Ringer, an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has the training, experience, and creative expertise to give you the beautiful smile that you deserve using cosmetic dentistry.
Not every dentist is qualified to provide you with cosmetic dentistry treatments. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist in Orange County, make sure that he or she is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as some may advertise cosmetic dentistry services, but aren’t trained to give you beautiful results.
When you schedule a complimentary cosmetic dental consultation with Dr. Ringer and Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills, your mouth will be thoroughly examined in order to provide you with the best options for your teeth and gums.
While most common cosmetic dentistry procedures are quite simple, others may require specialized and more complex care.
Below are five cosmetic dental procedures that Dr. Ringer, your dentist in Orange County, may recommend.
Onlays and Inlays
Otherwise known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are used to support a tooth that has mild or moderate decay. Inlays and onlays are used when there isn’t enough structure.
If there is no damage to the cusp of the tooth, an inlay is used to place on the surface of the tooth. If a larger portion of the tooth has been damaged, an onlay will be used to cover the whole surface of the tooth.
Manufactured in a dental lab from a composite dental resin, the inlays and onlays are bonded to the tooth with an adhesive bonding cement. Inlays and onlays will give additional support and restore the shape of the tooth to avoid further deterioration or decay.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Composite bonding repairs discolored, damaged and decayed teeth using a material that matches the color of your natural teeth. Composite bonding can be used for fillings on the front of your teeth and to repair chips and cracks. Dr. Ringer may suggest composite bonding if your teeth are too long or too short or if you have a small gap between your teeth. Cosmetic dental bonding is one of the least expensive treatments when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic bonding can take place in a single dental appointment depending on how many teeth need to be bonded.
Made to bond directly to the front of your teeth, porcelain veneers are made from medical grade porcelain ceramic and are custom made to fit your teeth. Although porcelain veneers are more expensive than cosmetic dental bonding, they are more durable and look more realistic.
Porcelain veneers can fill gaps between teeth; repair cracked or chipped teeth and can even fix crooked teeth. If your teeth are badly stained or discolored, and tooth whitening hasn’t done the trick, talk to Dr. Jack Ringer about porcelain veneers.
The most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in the world, teeth whitening can be done chairside, or be completed using custom-made teeth bleaching trays that you take home.
Depending on the type of teeth whitening procedure performed, your teeth can lighten up to 10 shades. Teeth that are badly stained from age, tobacco, red wine, tea, or coffee can look beautiful again with professional teeth whitening. If you have dental restorations such as cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays, or dental implants, teeth whitening will not be successful.
If you follow the Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills Blog, you will know that dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. Using titanium screws, Dr. Ringer will surgically place the posts in or on your jawbone.
Once the tissue has healed, which can take about six months, the dental implant posts will be capped with an artificial tooth that matches the rest of your natural teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Anaheim Hills can boost your self-confidence and may even help you attract the man or woman of your dreams. Who knows, if you have cosmetic dentistry, you may even be awarded that coveted promotion that has been eluding you for weeks.
