Aesthetic Dental Treatment Begins with a Consultation

Oral health significantly influences overall well-being. A healthy mouth acts as a defense, preventing pathogens from entering the bloodstream and spreading throughout the body.

Beyond health, the appearance of your teeth is vital. A clean, healthy, and aligned set of teeth makes it easy to smile confidently. Oral health and aesthetics are interconnected; a healthy mouth is inherently beautiful, and even well-maintained teeth can be further refined for aesthetic purposes.

Dental Hygienist or Dentist Consultation?

Those considering aesthetic dental treatments may start with a consultation from a dental hygienist in some cases. If the client is planning minor aesthetic procedures—such as teeth cleaning or whitening—a consultation with a dental hygienist is appropriate.

However, if the plan involves more complex interventions such as renewing fillings, replacing missing teeth, reshaping or resizing teeth, or correcting alignment issues, then a consultation should be scheduled with a dentist.

Aesthetic Dentistry

  • A dental hygienist can brighten your smile with both moderate and extensive teeth whitening treatments. It’s wise to start with a complimentary consultation with a dental hygienist if you’re considering at-home whitening kits.
  • Dentists can renew old dental restorations. For instance, they can replace outdated amalgam fillings with modern composite or ceramic options that not only match the natural color of your teeth more closely but also alleviate any issues commonly associated with amalgam.
  • For missing teeth, dentists or specialist dentists can provide durable solutions with dental implants and bridges.
  • Dentists are also equipped to correct misaligned teeth through orthodontic treatments.
  • They can sculpt and enhance the shape of your teeth or close gaps using restorative materials.
  • For transformative cosmetic improvements, ceramic veneers, also known as dental laminates, offer a substantial aesthetic enhancement, creating a flawless appearance.

Aesthetic Dentistry Terminology Explained

For dental professionals, terminology comes naturally, but these terms can often be opaque for patients.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a thin layer that is affixed to the front of a tooth. It is used to improve the aesthetic appearance and shape of teeth, addressing issues like discoloration, misalignment, spacing, or length. Veneers are typically crafted from ceramic, which offers longevity and durability unlike those made from composite materials.

What is ceramic?

Ceramic is a strong, light-permeable material that is commonly used in dental restorations such as fillings, veneers, and crowns due to its durability and aesthetic qualities.

What is a crown?

A crown is the visible part of the tooth. If a tooth’s crown is extensively damaged, it can be replaced with a ceramic crown, which restores both function and appearance.

What is an implant?

An implant refers to a titanium root that is implanted into the jawbone. It’s often used to describe the complete restoration, which includes the titanium root and a ceramic crown that together function as a substitute for natural teeth.

What is a prosthesis?

Dental prostheses can be fixed, such as veneers, crowns, and bridges, which operate like your natural teeth. Removable prostheses, such as partial and full dentures, rest on the gums and are removable for cleaning, offering a practical solution for extensive tooth loss.
