Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Several different cosmetic dental procedures are available for addressing various cosmetic concerns, such as gaps, chips, cracks, stains, discolorations, and misshaped teeth. In Jenkintown, cosmetic dentistry can be used to discreetly conceal flaws and repair chipped or cracked teeth. Some of the cosmetic dentistry options offered at Jenkintown Dental Associates include:

  • Cosmetic bonding and contouring
  • Crowns and veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Professional teeth whitening

Cosmetic bonding and contouring are dental procedures for repairing and reshaping problem teeth. Bonding can repair chips and cracks, while contouring can reshape teeth that are oddly shaped. For bonding, a resin material is applied to cracked or chipped areas. The resin blends in and bonds with the tooth as it dries. Once dry, the tooth will be repaired and the resin will look like part of the natural tooth. With contouring, enamel is removed from misshaped teeth in small amounts until a more aesthetically pleasing shape has been achieved.

Crowns and veneers give problem teeth a brand new look. Crowns are placed over problem teeth like a cap. Once the crown is in place, the problem tooth is completely encapsulated inside. Veneers are thin covers placed on the front of problem teeth. Crowns and veneers both conceal various cosmetic concerns, including chips, cracks, stains, and discolorations. Crowns and veneers also look and function like natural teeth and discreetly blend in with the surrounding teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings are a discreet option for filling cavities in infected teeth. They match the color of natural teeth so no one will know you have dental fillings. Finally, professional teeth whitening treatments deliver the fastest and longest lasting teeth whitening results available. Dull, stained, or discolored teeth can be made several shades whiter in a single in-office treatment session and the results can last for as long as five years.
