Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry involves replacing and restoring damaged teeth, as well as a broad scope of other aesthetic procedures. Cosmetic dentists provide:
- Tooth whitening
- Tooth-colored restorations and fillings
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
- Tooth bonding
Cosmetic dentists can also address functional concerns while improving your smile. At DiRenzo Family Dentistry, the staff provides the comfort and skill to make you feel confident during your procedure.
Dr. DiRenzo and Dr. Bett stay up-to-date with current trends and the most revolutionary treatments. They regularly attend continuing education to be the best providers of cosmetic dentistry.
The doctors and staff at DiRenzo Family Dentistry take into account how your smile fits into your entire facial appearance. Dr. DiRenzo and Dr. Bett exam your lips, gums, teeth, bite, face, hair, and skin color. They even take into account the length of your teeth, gum-to-lip distance, and other characteristics to get you the perfect smile.
What is Bonding?
Bonding repairs slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. Dr. DiRenzo or Dr. Bett place a white filling over your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling comes in various shades to match your particular tooth color.
The filling bonds with your tooth to look natural. Dr. DiRenzo and Dr. Bett may offer bonded fillings instead of silver amalgam fillings when repairing a cavity. The fillings better match your teeth, making any dental work less noticeable.
What are Veneers?
Veneers involve placing a covering over the visible area of the teeth. It’s a more extensive procedure that requires more than one visit.
At the first visit, the dentists at DiRenzo Family Dentistry prep your teeth by removing a small amount of the enamel, so the veneers fit correctly. They also take an impression to send to a lab to create the porcelain or pressed ceramic veneers. You’ll be sent home with a temporary covering, so your teeth won’t be sensitive or become damaged.
At the second appointment, Dr. DiRenzo and Dr. Bett adhere the veneers to your teeth for a beautiful smile. You might choose veneers if you have a tooth with a large filling or little tooth structure. Veneers are more durable than bonded teeth and require less work than a crown.
