Cosmetic dentistry is a booming industry. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, there has been an increase in cosmetic dental procedures over the last 5 years, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down. This blog post will discuss some of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures offered in the US.
Inlays and onlays are cosmetic options that we can use to mask discoloration of the teeth or restore broken molars. This process involves placing an alternative material such as plastic, porcelain, gold, or composite resin into the “cavity” of your tooth to cover up any unattractive portions.
In some cases where large fillings were present previously, this procedure may not be possible because it would require too much removal (extraction)of healthy tooth structure to make room for the filling. In these situations, another restoration like a crown is often recommended instead.

This procedure uses tooth-colored materials to cover stained, chipped, or cracked teeth and fix gaps between two front teeth. It’s not permanent like veneers, but it’s less expensive than porcelain veneers because composite resin material used during this process is much lower in cost than porcelain.

A dentist or a specialist, such as an orthodontist, will use hydrogen peroxide gel or carbamide peroxide gel to bleach your teeth at home. It can take up to two weeks for results, but you’ll see immediate improvements after only a few days into treatment.
Dental implants are permanent, and they’re one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in 2016. This procedure is used to replace missing teeth that we cannot restore with other means such as crowns, bridges, or veneers. We will surgically insert a titanium post into your jawbone. It’ll fuse over time, making this a great option for people who want tooth restoration without compromising their natural facial features.
