General dentistry focuses on general dental health, including the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral diseases. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth and mouth.
Dentists can give your smile small tweaks or an extreme makeover, depending on your needs.
Cosmetic dentistry can fix a range of problems, including:
- Yellow, stained or discoloured teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn out teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Tooth gaps
While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth, mouth, face and smile.
Technological advancements in cosmetic dentistry have made it possible for the dentists to address a wide range of challenges. Two of the latest trends aimed at creating a more attractive appearance are smile makeovers and full mouth reconstructions. The dentists provide cosmetic dentistry across New Zealand, and we can fix these problems in fewer appointment times through:
- Smile Makeovers
The goal of a smile makeover is to improve the appearance of the smile. This can be done through the use of dental procedures, including dental veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants such as dental crowns or bridges. These changes are purely cosmetic in nature.
- Full Mouth Reconstruction
A full mouth reconstruction is a set of procedures that focuses on better oral health in general, with a secondary effect of better smile appearance. It involves treatments for functional problems with the teeth, muscles, bite, and bone structure, including gum disease, misaligned teeth, and temporomandibular dysfunction—issues that are typically difficult to detect unless diagnosed by a dentist.
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Currently In Use Include:
- Dental Fillings and Bonding – This treatment repairs chipped and broken teeth.
- Teeth Whitening – Teeth yellow over time, but some external factors like smoking, drinking coloured beverages (e.g. coffee, tea, red wine, etc.), and poor oral hygiene maintenance hasten the process. Teeth whitening, whether done in-office or at-home kits prescribed by the dentists, may fix the problem.
- Dental Veneers – Veneers, which are often made of plastic or porcelain laminates, help fix chipped, cracked, worn out or discoloured teeth. In some cases, it may also eliminate tooth gaps.
- Dental Implants – Implants are surgical fixtures placed into the jawbone. An implant acts as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth or as an anchor for a denture.
- Dental crowns – Also called a cap, a dental crown is a hollow tooth replacement used to cover up a chipped, broken, or decayed tooth.
- Dental bridges – A dental bridge is literally a bridge between two crowns to fill a missing tooth. It is commonly used when there are only a few teeth to replace.
