Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth. Whether you’d like to craft the smile of your dreams, or feel self-conscious about the way your teeth look, cosmetic dentistry can have life-changing results.
Whether you have just one tooth in need of repair or want a full mouth makeover, cosmetic dentistry can do wonders for your appearance and self-esteem. Often, cosmetic dentistry can improve the function of your teeth and your oral health as well. Dr. Ku performs cosmetic work that both looks and works great.
Dr. Ku provides cosmetic dentistry procedure for teeth that are:
- Crowded or uneven
- Gapped or crooked
- Chipped or broken
If you’re concerned about how these dental problems affect your smile, the team at Plano Dental Excellence can help. Dr. Ku can help you achieve the smile you want and deserve.
What cosmetic dentistry procedures are available?
At Plano Dental Excellence, there’s a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help you, no matter how complex or significant your dental problems are. Dr. Ku can customize and combine procedures so you can achieve the look you want.
Examples of popular cosmetic dental procedures include:
Teeth whitening, or bleaching, can make stained, dull, or discolored teeth several shades whiter. Plano Dental Excellence provides whitening treatments that get better results than what you can buy at the pharmacy, featuring customized whitening trays and professional-grade bleaching solutions.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that Dr. Ku permanently bonds to chipped, stained, misshapen, or gapped teeth. Veneers look just like healthy natural enamel and are very stain-resistant, so they stay bright for years.
Bonding involves applying a composite resin to teeth to cover up imperfections. It’s an affordable alternative to veneers, though it’s less durable and stain-resistant.
If you need significant restorative work, like implants and crowns, Dr. Ku makes sure the final result looks and functions great and blends in with your natural teeth. If you have misaligned teeth, he may also recommend straightening them with Invisalign, which improves both the appearance of your teeth and your oral health.
How can I make sure the results of cosmetic dentistry last?
The team at Plano Dental Excellence gives you advice to take care of your teeth after your cosmetic dentistry procedure. It’s their goal for you to be satisfied with your smile for years to come.
Though each procedure has different care requirements, it’s generally a good idea to treat your cosmetic work like natural teeth and take good care of them. That includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing once a day, and getting regular cleanings at Plano Dental Excellence.
