Cosmetic dentistry is an important part of dental care, even though it may be considered a luxury. This aspect of dentistry deals with the aesthetic look of one’s teeth and smile, but also corrects various irregularities.

Having teeth that are not completely straight, for instance, can trap food particles which are difficult to remove with brushing and flossing, eventually leading to tooth decay. By removing a layer of the teeth involved and fitting porcelain veneers which are bonded to the specific teeth and lines those up perfectly, this problem can be eliminated. This method is also used to hide imperfections, such as fluoride stains or pitting, elongating short teeth, improving one’s bite, covering chips or closing gaps.

Many of us intensely dislike the old amalgam fillings used for years to plug cavities, because of their dark grey color which are not pleasing to look at. Nowadays there are a variety of filling types which can be matched to the color of one’s teeth and it is not a difficult job - nor extremely expensive - to remove the old amalgam fillings and replace them with these new natural-looking composite fillings. For the replacement of very large amalgam fillings, porcelain or ceramic inlays and onlays are an option too and these types of filling material are resistant to staining, keeping your teeth looking good for longer. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist in Bakersfield, CA, who can do this work for you, we guarantee that you will be delighted with the results.

Having missing teeth is also problematic, as the teeth on either side of the missing tooth move towards the gap, thereby changing one’s bite and possibly causing stress and/or pain in the temporomandibular joint (which links the upper and lower jaws). It is also unsightly to have visible missing teeth. There are various methods of closing such gaps to avoid this problem. A bridge can be built, where the dentist prepares the teeth on either side of the gap to accept a crown and a dummy tooth (or teeth) is attached between these two crowns. Once cemented in place, it is impossible to see that there is a tooth (or teeth) missing. Another way of replacing a missing tooth is by doing an implant, which is a more costly method.
