Major Reminders: What’s That Cosmetic Treatment Do?

You may sometimes find yourself talking about cosmetic care as an option for yourself, since you know that you have access to the means for making your smile look so much lovelier with our Ankeny, IA team! However, when you really start to take a closer glance, considering what you might be able to accomplish for your smile, do you know which treatment suits which type of concern? Or, do you find that you occasionally mix up one with another? When you feel like a review would help you more clearly see the opportunities before you, don’t hesitate to ask: We can help!

What’s Teeth Whitening?

First up is the cosmetic care treatment you will hear about over and over, that you will find yourself likely dreaming about, and that is extremely popular! It’s teeth whitening. It’s so common for patients to consider whitening because everyone’s teeth are porous, which means everyone’s teeth are prone to eventual discoloration (even if you’re quite good about your smile care). In short, whitening is a process by which we apply a bleaching gel to your teeth, which will help remove stains from their resting places (within your enamel), revealing a brighter, whiter grin!

What’s Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic care treatment that is often simply thought of as a solution for chipped teeth but it is quite a powerful option! Remember the basics: We use composite. We can customize the color to match your teeth or to brighten an area. This is the same material as the stuff we use for white fillings! We may sculpt it, use it like a paint, and address problems that either require camouflaging (like stains) or additional tissue (like gaps, esthetic damage, and short teeth).

What’s Dental Contouring?

If dental bonding is the addition of what appears to be tissue, remember to think of dental contouring as the opposite cosmetic care treatment. It’s with a delicate polishing tool that we may remove extremely small amounts of enamel, so you can improve the beauty, texture, shape, etc. of your tooth.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers! They sound delicate but they’re actually extremely resilient shells that have been made (custom made, of course) out of layers of ceramic. We use them to transform your smile by placing one casing over the visible surface of each tooth. You can improve nearly any issue you’re having with your smile’s esthetics with this option.
