While restorative dentistry repairs and restores teeth back to their healthy selves, cosmetic dentistry takes things one-step further. Cosmetic dentists are trained to place porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns and while the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, it still takes skill and experience to place porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns.
According to cosmetic dentist, Dr. Mary Stonisch from Faircourt Dental Smile Studio, cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
Cosmetic dentistry can fix all sorts of problems. If you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth, the Faircourt Dental Smile Studio in Grosse Pointe, may recommend cosmetic dental bonding. Unlike porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding is completed in a single dental appointment and is not permanent.
Porcelain veneers are a great fix for teeth that are too long or too short, or teeth that are badly stained. Veneers also work for crooked teeth and teeth that are cracked or chipped. Porcelain veneers require some removal of the enamel making them a permanent solution. Veneers also require two to three dental appointments.
Dental implants are considered both restorative and cosmetic. Your dentist in Grosse Pointe is a licensed and preferred dental implants provider including All on Four dental implants with bridges.
While most people are good candidates for cosmetic dentistry, healthy teeth and gums are necessary before a procedure begins. If you have gingivitis or tooth decay, your Grosse Pointe dentist will take care of those problems before carrying out any type of cosmetic dentistry procedure.
