The world of cosmetic dentistry is full of different options for people who either simply want to change the look of their teeth to people who need the treatment in order to restore the full look and function of their smile.

With all of that in mind, let’s look at a few different options in the industry and why they may or may not be a fit for the problems you need fixed.

Dental bonding
When you come in for a dental bonding appointment with Dr. Kenneth Schweizer at Kenneth M. Schweizer, DDS, PA in Sarasota, Florida, you’ll be surprised at just how simple and quick this procedure is. One of the cheaper options, it simply involves Dr. Kenneth Schweizer using a pliable resin to fill in cracks, fractures, or chips in your teeth. The resin is hardened and polished to look like a real part of your tooth.

Crowns are one of the more popular options, since they completely restore a tooth with an entirely new surface. The old tooth is ground to form an abutment, then a crown (made of porcelain to match the shade and size of your “real” teeth) is cemented on top. This creates a new tooth that functions and feels like a real one.

Dental implants are similar to crowns except the entire tooth is extracted and a titanium post is inserted in its place. Then the post is capped with a similar crown that looks, feels, and works just like the rest of your real teeth.
