What are the most popular dental procedures?

  • Teeth Whitening

Out of all the popular dental procedures, teeth whitening is undoubtedly the most popular and least expensive. During this procedure, the dentist performs teeth whitening techniques that correct your teeth discoloration. More specifically, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to remove any tartar, plaque, and food debris from the crevices in your teeth.  Depending on how discolored your teeth are, some dentists will also use bleaching agents to whiten your teeth further.

  • Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells made from dental porcelain or composite that cover your front teeth. These shells are used to cover any visible flaws on your teeth, including the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth. Dental veneers are fixed onto the tooth with cementing material and can last for up to 20 years without staining. Even more, dental veneers are extremely popular because they blend seamlessly with your other teeth.

  • Bonding

If you have cracked, misshapen, discolored, or chipped teeth, your dentist may want to use a putty-like resin substance, called bonding, to apply to the teeth. Dental bonding was made to mimic the look of natural teeth and can be painlessly applied within an hour.  The resin substance is applied to the damaged teeth and hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. Then, it is shaped and polished to match your other teeth. With proper care, dental bonding can last for up to 10 years.

  • Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are placed over any damaged teeth. They usually cover teeth that are severely just colored, misshapen, damaged, decayed, chips, or cracked. Dental crowns, essentially, restore your tooth size, strength, shape, and appearance. This material is made up of dental porcelain, composite, ceramic, or porcelain fused to metal. If cared for appropriately, dental crowns last up to about 30 years.
