Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is a common chemical process in restorative and aesthetic dentistry, which is used to whiten people’s teeth. Teeth bleaching can be done either in the dentist’s office, which is called In-Office Tooth Whitening, or at home, which is called Home Bleaching.
According to an experienced cosmetic dentist in Toronto, when tooth enamel, which is a white and strong tissue, changes its color under the influence of various factors such as drinking coffee, tea, smoking, taking certain medications, genetic issues, etc. The teeth look bad with this color change. Teeth bleaching is a common and available procedure to whiten discolored or stained teeth. Also, some people who don’t have tooth stains and just want to whiten their teeth can try this method.
Dental veneers are thin layers of material that restorative and aesthetic dental specialists use to hide the appearance of dental problems such as cracks, fillings, gaps between teeth, shortness of some teeth, color change, etc. Veneers are usually made of porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are called dental laminates, and composite veneers are also called composite veneers.
Inlay and Onlay
Dental inlays and onlays are also known as indirect restorations; they are made in dental laboratories. These two items are a type of tooth restoration that is used to repair tooth decay. Mild to moderate tooth decay, as well as teeth that do not have enough structure to place fillings can be easily repaired with inlays and inlays.
Dental inlays and inlays are made of resin composite materials or ceramic materials. They are attached to the surface of the tooth with the help of a special adhesive and cement. These two indirect filling methods, without damaging the teeth, increase the strength of the teeth and also return the function and natural appearance of the teeth.
Tooth extraction is one of the most conservative restorative and aesthetic dental treatments, which is performed exclusively and artistically by specialists in this field. When the tooth has suffered extensive dental damage, such as caries, it can be restored and built up before needing a veneer. Building up is the best treatment for extensive dental damage.
This can preserve the remaining dental tissue without the need for trimming and restore the shape and function of the tooth. Unfortunately, most people prefer to restore their natural teeth with prostheses such as bridges or veneers. Still, restorative and aesthetic dental experts recommend that instead of using prostheses, we should restore and save the natural teeth as much as possible.
A dental crown is a type of indirect dental treatment that completely covers a tooth or dental implant like a veneer. A dental crown is a very suitable method to repair a tooth that has a relatively large cavity or hole or decay.
A dental crown is usually attached to the tooth by a special cement. Veneers are made of different materials and are usually considered a non-invasive restoration method. Veneers are used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth and prevent them from breaking due to chewing forces. All-ceramic veneer, as a veneer that creates beauty and strength at the same time, has a special place in indirect tooth restoration.
