In today’s post we will concentrate on three innovative procedures used in cosmetic dental smile makeovers.
1. Tooth Implants
Tooth implants are altering the face of dentistry. For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.
When the final crown is placed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many vital advantages over dental bridges. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Hovden to learn more.
2. Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different varieties of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
3. White Fillings
If you had cavities in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly improving your smile without crowns.
