Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures in Cincinnati
Bonding and Contouring
This fast and easy procedure allows patients to repair slight imperfections in their teeth efficiently and without the need for a complex or invasive procedure. During a bonding procedure, your dentist will mold the tooth-colored bonding materials directly onto the tooth, carefully shaping and sculpting it into its final shape. Whether filling in a chipped tooth or reshaping a tooth which is too-pointy or too-narrow, dental bonding proves to be a versatile procedure. Contouring, which often goes hand-in-hand with bonding, uses various bits and a dental drill to reshape a tooth or, once they harden into their final form, the materials used in bonding.
If you feel as though your smile is dull or yellowed, Zoom Whitening an give your smile a boost. This short procedure, which usually lasts under an hour, provides immediate and dramatic results. Though you can lighten your teeth up to ten shades, your dentist can adjust the strength of the treatment according to your preferences.
Dental veneers cover the teeth to provide a whole new look for your smile. A dental laboratory prepares the veneers to fit into the smile by customizing them based on a cast of your smile, created by your dentist. Veneers are porcelain, making them resistant to stains and very durable against everyday wear.
Dental implants replace a missing tooth. What set implants apart from other tooth replacement methods is their ability to also replace a tooth’s root. Dentists surgically place implants into the jawbone under a missing tooth, making the implant a permanent part of the mouth.
