Cosmetic dentistry is aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. With advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and all improvements in between. Even though cosmetic dentistry procedures are often considered elective, many of the treatments also offer restorative benefits improving daily life. The prosthodontists at Dental Solutions of Binghamton, Dr. Ronald Sambursky and Dr. Fritz Zietsman, have the advanced training needed to restore and revitalize smiles. Learn more about the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Dental Solutions Binghamton below.
1. Composite Fillings
Composite fillings are minimally invasive and a fast way to improving portions of your smile affected by decay, cracks or fractures. While a composite filling is not permanent cosmetic dentistry option, it improves the structural integrity of the tooth. In addition, compositive fillings are tooth-colored providing a flawless finish. Once it is placed precisely, shaped, and polished, your tooth is restored to its original shape and function.
2. Teeth Whitening
As you age you may find that your teeth become stained and yellow, and daily consumption habits can accelerate the discoloration. Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic dentistry treatment used to improve the color of natural tooth enamel. Dental Solutions of Binghamton offers both, in-office and at-home, whitening treatment options. No matter your choice, in consultation with your specialist, you will find that your newly brightened smile will give a great first impression, boost your self-esteem and improve your confidence in any situation.
3. Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns protect and strengthen the tooth structure when it can not be restored by fillings or other types of restorations. The dental crown encases the entire tooth surface and restores the tooth original shape and size. Porcelain crowns are made using realistic-looking materials resembling your natural teeth resulting in a full, beautiful smile. With proper care, your dental crown can offer an improved smile for 5 to 15 years.
4. Dental Inlays and Onlays and Veneers
Dental inlays, onlays and veneers are all very similar cosmetic dentistry treatments that involve placing a protective layer on the surface of your teeth. The difference between these treatments are in the degree of coverage they offer. An inlay lies entirely in the chewing surface of the tooth. An onlay goes beyond the area covered by an inlay and is often referred to as a partial crown. Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. As with most cosmetic dentistry options, none are permanent and will someday need to be replaced. However, they are very durable and will last many years.
