Here at Lifetime Smiles in Austin, our cosmetic dentist is more than simply a dentist; he is an artist. His job is to improve the appearance and health of your gums and teeth, ultimately transforming your smile. To give you the smile and teeth you want, a cosmetic dentist will recommend a variety of common treatments depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.
Today, we’ll explore some options your cosmetic dentist may give you.
Fillings and sealants are usually used to protect your molars from cavities. Most of our molars tend to have bumps and pits on them, and when they’re left exposed to tartar buildup, you can count on cavities to start forming. Once this happens, tooth decay is inevitable unless addressed. To prevent this, your dentist will likely suggest tooth fillings.
Dental implants are restorative devices dentists use to replace one or more missing teeth. It is an artificial tooth root typically made of titanium alloy and comes with an artificial crown. Once the artificial root has been placed in the gum and attached to underlying bone structure, it must be left to heal for up to six months. Once healed, your cosmetic dentist will schedule an appointment with you to place the crown. The result? A perfect restoration of your missing tooth.
If your teeth aren’t as aligned as properly as they could be, your dentist will recommend braces, as they are the most effective solution in this case. Braces are designed to gradually force your teeth back into proper alignment, not only to improve your appearance but to improve your bite, too.
These are just a few ways our cosmetic dentist in Austin can transform your smile. If you’re interested in speaking with us about your options, call us today to schedule an appointment!
