Your dentist offers many different procedures to help restore functionality to your teeth, improve the appearance of your smile, and repair cosmetic dentistrybroken or damaged teeth. Understanding some of the most common procedures can help you determine which are best and most beneficial for you. Learn more about these procedures with Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway, NJ.

Crowns and Bridgework
Made from tooth-colored porcelain, crowns and bridges restore your smile’s functionality while making it look great as well. A crown fits over a compromised tooth to protect it from further damage and help it stand up to everyday use. A bridge fills in a gap in your smile using three prosthetic teeth in a row. The two teeth on either end are actually dental crowns, which affix to the natural teeth surrounding your gap to hold the bridge permanently in place.

Dental Bonding
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin materials to change the shape, width, or length of a tooth. First, your dentist uses etching material to roughen up the surface of the tooth. Your dentist will then mold the resin directly onto the tooth and into the correct shape. A special UV light hardens and sets the resin permanently.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a fast and easy way to dramatically change the appearance of your smile. A single professional teeth whitening session can lift the color of your teeth up to ten shades in a single sitting. The strength of the whitening system used, however, can be lowered to achieve a more subtle result. Patients will require touch-up appointments once or twice a year to maintain their teeth’s appearance.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Galloway, NJ 
Anyone who wishes to improve the appearance of their smile can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. However, their teeth should be in good health with no signs of tooth decay or gum disease. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, consult with your dentist to determine if you make a good candidate for a procedure.
