Cosmetic Dentistry St. Cloud, FL
When you think of your favorite Hollywood celebrity, you probably picture good looks and an attractive smile with perfectly straight teeth.

If you have fillings from several years ago, you are familiar with the gray, unattractive amalgam fillings that used to be the standard.
Today, tooth-colored fillings are available. These fillings so closely match the color of your natural teeth that they are virtually undetectable. Composite fillings are also strong, so they are ideal for filling cavities in the back as well as the front of your mouth.
Crowns are often used for practical purposes. For instance, they may be used to cover a tooth with a large filling that has caused a tooth fracture or to strengthen the tooth after root canal therapy. But they can also be used to address cosmetic issues.
Dental crowns made of porcelain are the most popular because they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. If you have a tooth that is damaged or discolored, a crown may be able to restore your smile.
Many of those perfect Hollywood smiles we mentioned earlier are a result of porcelain veneers.
Veneers are translucent, thin pieces of porcelain that are placed right over the front of your teeth. They can mask a host of problems, including teeth that are crooked, stained, or too short. There is some preparation to the teeth required before the veneers are bonded into place, so it's important to recognize that veneers are a permanent solution to cosmetic issues with your smile.
Many adults who have lived with crooked teeth all their life might think old-fashioned orthodontic treatment with metal braces and wires is their only option. But with Invisalign invisible braces, clear plastic aligners nudge your teeth gently into place discreetly and quickly.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
If you have even one missing tooth, it’s important to fill in the gap to prevent your remaining teeth from moving.
A dental bridge permanently attaches to crowns on either side of the space where a tooth is missing. Filling in this gap in your smile not only means you no longer have to feel self-conscious, but you can also feel good about protecting your remaining teeth.
