Dr. Hyder of Payette Dental is experienced in the art of cosmetic dentistry, helping you to get the smile you want. But do you know what could a smile makeover do for you?
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the more superficial aspects of your teeth. If your teeth are chipped, discolored, or misaligned, that’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in. These dental issues may not be ones that cause you pain or are crucial to fix. But, if they’re something that impacts your self-esteem, they’re important. They can make you feel better about yourself and your smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Offerings
At Payette Dental, we offer various cosmetic dentistry services. These include porcelain veneers and tooth bonding.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic that go over your existing teeth. They’re custom matched to the color of your teeth so that they look as natural as possible. Dr. Hyder will begin the process by filing down some of the enamel on your existing teeth. Impressions are then taken to ensure the veneers fit your smile. When the permanent veneers come, they’re bonded to the front of the selected teeth.
Porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, making them a good choice for cosmetic purposes. Since they go over the front of the tooth, they can treat discoloration, cracks and chips, or discolored teeth. They’re also nice because you don’t have to apply them to every single tooth. You can pick and choose which teeth you want them to be put on.
Dental bonding is one of the most economical options for cosmetic dentistry. It utilizes a biocomposite resin material that’s sculpted onto the prepared tooth. The tooth is filed and prepped to make sure that the bonding stays on the tooth. Once the resin is in a suitable position, a light is used to harden it and finalize the bonding process.
Dental bonding is commonly used for chipped and cracked teeth. The resin can be sculpted into a position that gets rid of the chip and makes it look like a natural tooth. It can also be used to minimize gaps between teeth. Like porcelain veneers, the resin can be color-matched to your smile for a natural look. It can also be used to go over the entirety of your teeth to fix stains.
