Here are a few cosmetic procedures:
Tooth-colored fillings: Fillings, also known as composite resin, are used during dental bonding procedures. The composite is made of plastic resin and a filler of finely ground glass-like particles and is used to fix issues, such as:
Teeth Whitening: There are two types of teeth whitening treatments provided: in-office teeth whitening or a take-home whitening kit. The in-office procedure is quite simple and time-effective for the busy individual. If you don't have time to visit your dentist for an hour, you can use the take-home whitening kit. Both types should result in whiter teeth.
Bridges: They are custom-made oral appliances that can conceal dental gaps, and help restore proper bite and chewing functions. There are different types of bridges:
Dental Implants: They are made up of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jaws to replace your missing tooth root. It creates stability, strength and prevents the weakening and shrinkage of your jawbone. Your Bloomington dentist will seal your gums and allows 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur. When you come back to his or her dentist's office, the doctor will re-open the area above the titanium post, insert a screw, place an abutment above the screw and secure a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.
