If you have gaps between your teeth, there are two types of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can correct this flaw. One type of procedure involves using a bonding agent to fill the gaps between the teeth. The bonding agent, which is a durable composite-plastic material, is applied to the edges of the teeth and sculpted to the size and shape of your natural teeth; enough bonding is used to effectively fill in the gap. A special light is used to cure the bonding agent, allowing it to harden quickly.
Dentists In Las Vegas can also apply veneers to your teeth to correct gaps. Veneers are made from resin or porcelain, and the veneer material is applied to your teeth, forming a thin shell. A special cement is used to bond the shell to your teeth, and special lighting is used to cure the cement. The veneer will alter the size and the shape of your teeth as needed to fill in the gap. A benefit of veneers, especially those made of porcelain, is that they appear quite natural.
Irregular Sized Teeth
Many people have irregularly shaped teeth, or think that their teeth are too small. A Las Vegas Dentist can add veneers to your teeth to change the size and shape of them as well, as veneers are effective for much more than just filling in gaps. With the application of veneers, you can have teeth that are all of the same size and shape, and if your teeth were previously too small, you have the option of making them slightly larger.
Missing Or Chipped Teeth
If you have missing teeth, chipped teeth, decayed teeth that are in need of major restoration, or you have several metal fillings in your mouth that are making you self conscious, Dentists In Las Vegas can use crowns to restore them, or a combination of an implant and a crown to replace missing teeth. Crowns, made of porcelain, are shaped like teeth and they go over the existing tooth to cover imperfections. If you have missing teeth, a post can be implanted into your jaw, and after the post is integrated into the tissue and bone, a crown can be attached to replace the missing tooth. This type of cosmetic dentistry procedure can even be performed if you have two or more adjacent teeth missing.
