5 Common Procedures In Implant And Dental Surgery

By Jason Towell

Almost all cosmetic dental surgeries are designed to improve your smile and there are many cosmetic dental procedures your dental professional can use to improve the overall appearance of your teeth, your smile and boosting your self-confidence is another result. Your cosmetic dental specialist might consider one of these five cosmetic dental surgery procedures as a remedy to your particular problem because they are commonly used to enhance the smile of many patients:

1. Tooth Whitening This procedure has become extremely popular, and if you’re looking for a dentist to perform teeth whitening, London is a great place. This cosmetic procedure involves removing stains on the teeth by using a bleaching agent. Your dentist will use a gel containing a 3% to 30% solution of hydrogen peroxide in conjunction with a set of trays that are specially fitted to your teeth. Stains and discolourations on the surface of your teeth can be caused by medications, beverages, foods or the natural process of aging, but this bleaching agent can remove them in a process that takes as little as 30 to 60 minutes. Side effects of tooth whitening typically subside within a few days and include gum irritation and sensitive teeth.

2. Contouring Of The Gums Sometimes known as ‘contouring’ by cosmetic practices, contouring of the gums is ideal for those patients that have too much gum tissue covering their front teeth, when they smile. This procedure can correct ‘gummy smiles’ and it is a common treatment for patients that appear to have too short of front teeth, due to excess gum tissue. Your cosmetic dentist will use a laser or a scalpel to contour your gums and excess gum tissue will be removed. Performed under a local anesthesia, pain is minimized and your smile will be improved. Non-prescription pain relief might be needed to counter the swelling and pain that are associated as side effects from contouring of the gums, but this should subside in a few days.

3. Tooth Bonding Composite material is used during the tooth bonding process that is used by cosmetic dentists to fill in the appearance of the teeth. Dental bonding is used to close gaps between the teeth, fill in cavities and uneven or broken teeth are made whole in appearance. This cosmetic procedure uses a bonding agent that is hardened by using a curing light, and then it is polished, buffed smooth and it is virtually pain-free. A local anesthesia might be used by your dentist, if there is an unusual need for it, however.

4. Dental Bridges Dental bridges are a two-step process to fill gaps caused by missing teeth between permanent teeth. This is a cosmetic dental procedure that can replace missing teeth with an artificial tooth, anchored on each side to existing permanent teeth. When a missing tooth affects smile appearance, speech or your bite, this is a painless process that can remedy the situation. During the first session, an impression of your teeth will be made to construct the dental bridge. Your cosmetic dentist might install a temporary bridge until your permanent bridge construction is completed. There again, there will normally be no anesthesia involved because the procedure doesn’t normally cause any pain, but there are always exceptions in certain cases.

5. Ceramic, Porcelain or Composite Dental Veneers Dental veneers cover your existing teeth with a wafer-thin material to add a new and refreshed surface to your teeth. Each tooth will be veneered, which covers up years of stains, unevenness and discolored teeth will appear whitened, which are reasons that this procedure is very popular with celebrities. Just like having a dental bridge constructed, there will be an impression of your teeth made first and you might get temporary veneers until the permanent dental veneers are completed, depending on the circumstances. Once the permanent veneers are applied, you will experience an almost-perfect smile that is comprised of your own teeth, but look much more attractive in appearance. There is no pain involved with this cosmetic dental procedure, so you don’t need to worry about any kind of anesthesia.
