Cosmetic Dentistry in San Diego
Cosmetic dentistry procedures won’t always take three dental appointments to complete. In fact, with same day dentistry treatments such as dental bonding, enamel shaping and professional teeth whitening you can walk in with a sad smile and walk out with a grin that will definitely turn heads.
Of course, if you are looking for a more permanent and strong smile, talk to Dr. Larsen about porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns and dental implants. Each treatment is an excellent solution for damaged teeth. However, some procedures are better than others when it comes to the way people take care of teeth.
For example, porcelain veneers are a much better solution than cosmetic dental bonding if you love to chew on pencils, ice and your nails.
While chewing on objects isn’t recommended for either, it is a sturdier option when it comes to tooth repairs. Bonding is made from resin and veneers from porcelain, making them much stronger.
Porcelain Veneers and Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Made from porcelain, dental veneers are placed on the fronts of teeth. Made to match the rest of your smile, they look and feel just like natural teeth.
Cosmetic dental crowns on the other hand cover the entire tooth much like a cap literally crowning the tooth. Because both of these procedures require a small amount of enamel removal, they are permanent solutions.
Because of the removal, these cosmetic dental treatments are less conservative than cosmetic dental bonding. They also require temporary restorations while you wait for your permanent veneers and/or cosmetic dental crowns.
Applied directly to the tooth after a conditioning liquid is used, dental resin changes the shape of the tooth. Bonding also repairs chips and cracks and is sometimes used for tooth colored fillings. Your San Diego dentist also uses bonding to fill small spaces between teeth.
Dental bonding is an excellent choice. Especially if you aren’t sure you want to commit. Don’t forget, veneers and crowns are permanent.
