Having a beautiful smile is important to many adult patients. But what about teenagers? Can teenagers benefit from cosmetic dentistry? Huntington Beach, CA area dentist, Dr. Robert J. Moretta, believes that patients of all ages can enjoy the advantages of aesthetic treatment solution to enhance the appearance of the smile!
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dental care in which the dentist will pay great attention to the appearance of the smile when providing restorative solutions. This means using materials that are not only strong and durable but attractive. No one wants to have their smile LOOK like they’ve had dental work done. Instead, they want a natural appearance with materials that blend in with the smile and restorations that are custom-made to ensure seamless integration.
Below are just a few of the common cosmetic restorations used for patients young and old at Sea Cliff Dental:
- Composite resin – composite resin is a clay-like material that can be used to cover imperfections of the smile, such as gaps between teeth, or be used as fillings when cavities are being treated. Composite resin bonding is tooth-colored and can be filed and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. We encourage patients to use composite resin materials in the smile because they are affordable, long-lasting, and natural in appearance.
- Porcelain veneers – when chipped or broken teeth become a problem in the front of the smile, it can cause teenagers to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Porcelain veneers are facings that are bonded onto the front of these teeth to change the look while ensuring a natural appearance.
- Dental crowns – protecting and strengthening a tooth can be achieved with a dental crown made of ceramic, to blend in with the smile while ensuring a natural tooth has a chance against natural chewing and biting forces.
