Going to the dentist does not have to be solely for a check up, it can be to boost your confidence too! According to statistics, the global market for cosmetic dentistry is predicted to rise 5% annually to bring it to an estimated $34 Billion by 2026. Cosmetic dentistry applies to any dental work that is done to improve the gum area and/or teeth to better its appearance. With advancements in cosmetic dentistry on the rise, it has become more accessible and affordable than ever to get that picture perfect smile.
What cosmetic dentistry services are people most commonly getting done to improve their smile? KR Dental has put together the three top trends below:
1) Composite Bonding
Chipping a tooth or even breaking one is not the end of the world, even if it feels like it. Composite resins are tooth-coloured materials which can be applied to the broken or chipped tooth area. It is bonded to the remains of the tooth to repair and strengthen it. It is perfect to fix any gaps or faded areas on a tooth’s surface or discolouration on the tooth. The material is similar to the tooth’s enamel to help improve the overall appearance of your smile. This treatment is painless, quick and inexpensive, often lasting less than an hour. Its ability to match the shades of the rest of the teeth naturally is the reason why it is such a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure.
2) Porcelain Veneers
For those that have more sensitive teeth or want an alternative to cosmetic bonding and teeth whitening, dental veneers are a good option. Porcelain veneers are thin “shells” that are usually attached to the front of your teeth and permanently bonded. A great cosmetic solution to give you a glowing smile, the patient can also decide whether they want the veneers to match the tooth colour they have or go for a brighter, whiter shade. The process is relatively quick, often only taking two office visits to complete and require less removal of the tooth structure, so the change is subtle.
3) Dental Implants
Dental implants are the solution to missing several or all missing teeth. The most ideal aesthetic tooth replacements, dental implants are functional, long-lasting and provide patients with a healthy, full smile. Dental implants are so efficient that they can serve patients for life without needing adhesive pastes or alterations to the diet. The implants are stable, restorative and can prevent jawbone shrinkage. You don’t have to have missing teeth take away from your confidence, dental implants will solve the problem and have you looking your best in no time.
