Getting that "picture perfect" smile
By: RLJ Dental
In a world filled with Instagram and Facebook pictures for your entire network to see, it's easy to focus on the little things. Thankfully, your RLJ Dental dentist can help you achieve that perfect smile with a mix of restorative and aesthetic dentistry.
Unlike restorative dentistry, which fixes your teeth due to functionality, aesthetic, or cosmetic, dentistry ensures your teeth will look good too. Our dentists will look at shades, shape and positioning of your teeth to make sure they fit with your facial structure and skin tone.
These types of dentistry often overlap in procedures used, such as veneers and implants. Cosmetic dentistry also includes procedures such as teeth contouring and bonding. However, when performing any type of dentistry the well-being of your teeth is our number one priority.
Taking your dental care one step further with aesthetic dentistry
One of the most basic forms of aesthetic dentistry is teeth whitening. Our dentists will consult with you to help find the perfect color. If your teeth are too white, they may look fake, and the goal of aesthetic dentistry is to look as healthy and natural as possible.
"People may choose to improve the look of their smiles for a variety of reasons, and there are many ways a dentist can improve their patient's smiles," says Dr. Ashley Minten of RLJ Dental Oshkosh. "These include teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, and tooth or gum tissue recontouring."
When our dentists look at the overall shape of your teeth they may also recommend teeth contouring or bonding to fill in gaps and chips. These cosmetic procedures can often be done in one visit and can take as little as thirty minutes to an hour.
Consult with your dentist to figure out which type of restorative or aesthetic dentistry will help your smile shine.
