What Are the Most Popular Cosmetic Dental Treatments?

If you're unhappy with your smile’s appearance, there are many ways to change it and get the look you’ve always wanted.

You can access lots of cosmetic dentistry treatments at Carmel Mountain Dental Care designed to safely and conveniently improve your look and even restore your oral health in the process!

Here are the five most popular types of cosmetic dental treatments you can access: 

1. Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments are a convenient way to remove stubborn stains and change the color of your smile. 

It allows you to safely get white teeth while also getting longer-lasting results when compared to over-the-counter whitening kits you can buy online or at a drugstore. With proper care, the results can last 2-3 years. 

2. Veneers 

Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that bonds to the surface of the natural tooth. This simple procedure provides a long-term solution to many cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Severe staining and discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or irregularly sized teeth
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Certain alignment issues 

With easy maintenance and fast results, veneers could last as long as 15 years. However, you should know that veneers are an irreversible procedure. Getting them involves removing a bit of tooth enamel, which cannot grow back. 

3. Clear Aligners 

Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment that can straighten your teeth or improve your bite discreetly. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners like Invisalign go unnoticed while you wear them. 

Moreover, they can be removed during eating, so they provide a more convenient and comfortable orthodontic treatment. 

4. Bonding, Shaping, and Recontouring 

Dental bonding and shaping involve applying a special resin to the natural tooth in order to change its appearance. 

It’s a non-invasive way to change the shape of a tooth or close a large gap between two teeth. Moreover, bonding and shaping are completely reversible and do not affect the natural tooth. 

Counturoug is a bit different since it involves directly reshaping the tooth enamel. This is usually done in the case of irregularly sized or misshapen teeth. 

5. Dental Implants 

Dental implants are artificial teeth that can restore a patient’s smile after dealing with tooth loss. Though they are mostly considered a restorative procedure, because dental implants look exactly like natural teeth, they have cosmetic functions as well. 

Implants even replace the tooth’s root, meaning they can effectively support jawbone health and provide a permanent solution to missing teeth.
