What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic Dentistry (also called Aesthetic dentistry) improves the appearance of your smile, and your face, through reconstructive and/or non-surgical methods. Dental reconstruction may include ceramic crowns, porcelain veneers, implants, gum line and jaw repair. All our cosmetic dental services are all available in-house at Ali Farahani DDS.
How does missing teeth affect our face?
Most people know that a smile is an important part of our facial appearance, but very few people know that our front teeth provide our lips with youthful support, and our back teeth are like pillars that support the structure of the face. Losing back teeth and having worn/filled front teeth all contribute to a collapsed, ageing look. Cosmetic dentistry can include small yet precise changes to the front teeth and the replacement of missing back teeth with aesthetic dental implants to restore the lost youthful dimensions of the face.
What are Veneers?
A veneer is a thin covering of material such as ceramic or porcelain. The veneer is custom made to compliment your specific smile. Your tooth will be altered to fit the veneer in order to remove bulk so the finished tooth will look natural. The veneer is then attached to the front of your altered tooth. Veneers can help fix a smile by:
- improving the colour of teeth that can’t be helped by other whitening methods
- filling in uneven spaces or large gaps
- improving the shape of chipped or worn teeth
