Are you looking for a whiter, brighter smile but are not sure where to begin?
The Pennsylvania Dental Association has provided consumers with a breakdown of some of the most common cosmetic dentistry options, to help them select the best fit.
For example, teeth whitening is one choice for those who have stained or discolored teeth they would like to brighten up. The PDA recommends consulting with a dentist before beginning such a treatment, as results may vary.
Another popular choice for patients who have chipped, broken or cracked teeth is tooth bonding - in which a tooth-colored material is applied to the surface of teeth.
A further option for repairing teeth is veneers, thing shells which are generally appreciated for their realistic appearance.
If a patient needs an entire tooth replaced, dental implants may be able to fill the gap left by a natural tooth.
However, the PDA cautions people to remember that dental implants require surgery, which means that candidates should be in good dental health - as well as fine overall health.
According to the American Dental Association, one of the most important factors that would make someone a good candidate for dental implants is having adequate bone to support the implant.
