Your smile is one of the first things that a stranger notices about your appearance and is perceived as an important part of social interactions. Being afraid to show your teeth when smiling is an affliction of many Americans, but it does not have to be that way! Cosmetic dental work is attainable for anyone looking for a more confident smile at their local dentist. Whether you want to get professionally whitened teeth or a whole new set of teeth, cosmetic dental surgery is a great option. Getting your teeth replaced with veneers or dental implants may seem daunting or painful, but through sedation cosmetic dentistry the results are definitely worthwhile.
What are all-on-4 dental implant procedures?
An all-on-4 dental implant procedure bonds a permanent set of teeth to missing or damaged natural teeth that must be removed for a natural looking, flawless smile. This procedure is ideal for patients who have lost teeth due to athletic trauma, accidents, or disease and need a whole newly made smile. Dental implants are inserted into the bone socket of a missing tooth and over time, the jawbone accepts the tooth, heals securely around the implant, and it acts as a natural tooth would. They are comfortable and feel just like real teeth, allowing sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures. Almost all dental implant procedures are successful and can last a lifetime with the proper care and maintenance.
What are veneers?
The process of getting veneers is a dental cosmetic surgery that bonds thin material, usually porcelain or resin, to existing teeth. This fixes any imperfections or discoloration that may cause a self conscious smile. Resin veneers are thinner and require less tooth removal. Porcelain is a permanent procedure, but look more like natural teeth.
