Dr. Kenneth Polke, founder of American Dental Excellence in the Denver area (http://americandentalexcellence.com), offers Cosmetic Dentistry including: teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and cosmetic bonding and shaping.
The term “cosmetic dentistry” is usually used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance but not necessarily the function of a person’s teeth. The main focus is on improving the aesthetics of the teeth by changing the color, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance of the person’s smile.
Cosmetic dentistry includes:
- Adding material to teeth such as bonding, veneers, or crowns
- Removing material such as enamel either in preparation for fitting veneers or crowns, or as a final step to change the shape of teeth
- Procedures which neither add nor remove material- such as teeth whitening
- Straightening of teeth (braces)
Dr. Polke stated “For cracks and unevenness in tooth enamel; cosmetic bonding and shaping can be used to effectively pave over the cracks and even out the surface of your teeth. If your teeth are chipped, too short, or permanently stained, you can get veneers. A porcelain veneer is basically a very thin, tooth-shaped piece of ceramic, which is used to conceal a damaged tooth. For crooked teeth you can get braces to straighten them out. Strong, healthy teeth are important physically and psychologically. When your natural teeth are showing visible wear and tear, get them repaired and once again eat, talk, and smile with confidence. There are a lot of options for improving your smile, contact a dentist in your area to figure out which procedures will help you get the results you’re looking for.”
