Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures and Treatments

There could be a number of reasons why someone would seek out a cosmetic dentist near me. We often treat patients who have a full set of strong and healthy teeth but have some teeth that are discolored. Some discoloration over the years may be natural for certain people, and in addition, some foods and drinks, along with smoking and some other lifestyle habits, can lead to the yellowing or darkening of enamel. Teeth whitening procedures can bleach your teeth.

Other types of cosmetic dentistry positively influence patients who are missing teeth or who have teeth that are misshapen, chipped, or cracked. Dentures are something to consider if you have missing teeth. Since they're removable, they're quite easy to care for. Dentures can come as full sets or partial sets, and beyond this, there are a few different types that you can consider. Dr. Thomas Kraklow is available to answer any questions you may have if you're interested in having dentures made to enhance your smile.

Then, there are crowns and veneers. These cosmetic items are affixed to existing teeth that may not fit in well with the other teeth. This could be because they've been damaged, chipped or cracked or were simply always smaller or different in shape than the others. Veneers are typically made with porcelains and some other materials, and they're bonded just to the front of an existing tooth. They can also be used when the shape of a tooth needs to be mildly corrected. A veneer is very thin, with a thickness of only about 1 millimeter. In contrast, a crown is usually about 2 millimeters thick. It covers the whole tooth as opposed to just the front of a tooth. It's the more significant treatment. Dr. Kraklow can consult with you regarding these treatments and go over what the procedure would be in greater detail.
