If you’re trying to practice good oral health and improve your smile, it can be hard to know what dental services you should be looking for in order to do so.
That’s why it’s important to find a specialist with a variety of options and the experience to help you find what service works best for you. But what treatments should you be looking for?
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Cosmetic dentistry services are rapidly increasing in popularity. One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening which is sought by people looking to brighten their smile and reduce the appearance of stains or discoloration.
Examples of other common cosmetic dentistry procedures include dental implants, dental crowns, and tooth bonding. Dental veneers are another popular option—this is when a dentist cements a thin shell to the front of a patient’s teeth to improve their appearance.
Another valuable type of dental service is periodontal treatments. Such services include preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases and conditions that impact the teeth’s supporting structures.
One of the services that they can provide is the extraction of a fractured, infected, or decaying tooth, though they will do everything in their power to preserve your tooth as well. The services of a periodontal dental specialist are useful when going in for a visit, as you could be going in for a teeth whitening and find an underlying issue that you might not have noticed without the periodontal dental specialist.
Prosthodontic services regard the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth. Prosthodontic specialists design, manufacture, and fit artificial replacements for missing or damaged teeth and other areas of the mouth. In doing so, they help restore functionality and a natural appearance to one’s mouth. Examples of prosthodontic services may include installing dental implants, bridges, or providing reconstructive surgery.
