SERVICES OF COSMETIC DENTISTRY
Tooth Colored Fillings
These fillings are also referred to as composite resins. They are made of a type of resin and are the same color of a person’s teeth. This is preferred to amalgam fillings which are more noticeable due to their metallic coloring. Tooth colored fillings don’t last quite as long as amalgam feelings however, they’re still a great option and are often preferred because of their natural appearance.
This procedure is performed when an issue has occurred with the tooth causing the inside of the tooth, also known as the pulp, to get inflamed or infected. In order to save the tooth without further issue, the pulp of the tooth is removed, cleaned, then filled with a rubbery material, then capped with a crown or filling.
Sometimes it’s necessary that a tooth be removed. For example, wisdom teeth that don’t need to be surgically removed are extracted. This means the teeth are pulled along with their root. If a tooth is full of decay, it could also require an extraction.

Partial and Full Dentures
Whether an accident caused a patient to lose teeth that couldn’t be fixed, or an elderly patient is having to have all their teeth removed, dentures are a popular option to replace those teeth. Partial dentures involve only a few teeth being replaced and often connect to the remaining teeth. Full dentures are a full set of false teeth that can be removed as needed and attach to the gums with an adhesive.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are a type of prosthetic that are commonly used to repair or protect a damaged tooth. Both of these are attached to the teeth by a type of cement. They can also be used to cover an implant. A crown acts as a cap while a bridge fills a gap in teeth by attaching to still existing teeth.
Veneers are a type of thin cover for teeth in order to give them a more specific shape or color. They attach to the front portion of the tooth that’s visible. They’re a great option for correcting chipped or worn teeth as well as discoloration or gaps.
Inlays and Onlays
Also included in cosmetic dentistry are corrective pieces called inlays or onlays. These are similar to crowns, caps, or fillings. Depending on the circumstances, an inlay or onlay may be chosen in place of the other options. It can be used to correct issues such as spaces left after a cavity has been removed.
