5 of the Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

One of our most valuable possessions is our smile. However, not everyone is born with a naturally lovely smile. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, the cosmetic dentistry treatments we provide at AV Dental Wellness Group in Lancaster, California, are a wonderful way to improve both your smile and your self-esteem.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that tackles aesthetic defects in your teeth. It does not, however, stop at improving your physical look. Cosmetic dental procedures can help address potential dental health issues and greatly improve your oral health.

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Teeth Whitening 

This is the most cost-effective technique that can improve your smile if you have teeth stains or discoloration. It can be done professionally in a dental office or at home.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace lost teeth. At AV Dental Wellness Group, we place the small titanium screw (the implant) into your jaw to replace the root of the missing tooth and complete the restoration with an artificial tooth, a dental bridge, or a denture. 

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are made from medical-grade porcelain and custom-crafted for each patient to look perfectly natural. They are specifically designed to correct cosmetic issues such as deformed teeth, damaged or cracked enamel, and noticeable gaps between the teeth.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a low-cost cosmetic dental procedure that restores damaged, decayed, chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. It uses materials that resemble the color of natural tooth enamel that are applied to the tooth’s surface before being shaped and cured with a high-intensity light. 

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are typically used when the tooth structure is insufficient for a filling. When the tooth margins are not damaged, the inlay is precisely put to the surface of the tooth. When the edges of the tooth are damaged in any way, an onlay is used to cover the entire surface of the tooth. They provide support, strengthen the teeth, restore their original shape, and prevent future decay.
