Cosmetic dentistry Scottsdale, a popular dental treatment, refers to dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums or bite.
With its focus on appearance, cosmetic dentistry Scottsdale does not necessarily improve the function of a patient’s teeth or bite. Cosmetic dentistry often involves adding dental material to teeth or gums. Such procedures are known as bonding, porcelain veneers or laminates, crowns or caps, gum grafts, teeth whitening or bleaching, gum de-pigmentation, straightening of teeth, and so on.
A common cosmetic dentistry Scottsdale treatment performed in My Scottsdale Dentist, a leader in cosmetic dentistry in Scottsdale, is teeth reshaping, or sculpting, and bonding. Teeth reshaping and bonding is usually performed in single session, during which the dentist removes parts of the enamel to improve the appearance of the tooth, such as reducing the appearance of a small chip, or altering the length, shape or position of teeth. Tooth reshaping is a procedure that provides quick results, and can act as an alternative for braces in certain situations.
Bonding is another cosmetic dentistry process often sought by cosmetic dentistry Scottsdale patients. Bonding is a process through which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, then sculpted, hardened and polished. Most often used to improve the appearance of teeth, bonding can also conceal slight imperfections, such as small chips.
Another great procedure performed at My Scottsdale Dentist as part of their Cosmetic Dentistry Scottsdale treatments is the application of veneers, ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. Veneers are an option used to close gaps or to treat discolored teeth that don’t respond to whitening procedures.
