Most people who are considering cosmetic dentistry are aware of the various procedures that an improve their smiles. We’re using this post from the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria to describe a few of them.
There are porcelain veneers: a custom-made wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and crack in teeth that are free of decay. Many of our patients get minimally invasive veneers on their top six teeth for a dramatic improvement.
Orthodontia has received a lot of attention since the introduction of clear braces from Invisalign. They aren’t just for ‘tweens and teenagers. More and more adults nationwide are straightening their teeth to achieve beautiful smiles with discreet orthodontic treatment.
Porcelain crowns have been around for generations but continue to restore decayed or damaged teeth while providing beauty, strength and natural function. Porcelain crowns are also used with unprecedented dental implants to restore missing teeth.
