FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, December 24, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Cosmetic dentistry is broadly defined as the branch of dentistry associated with the appearance of the teeth. There are numerous dental products and procedures that fall into the cosmetic dentistry category. Dr. Sajoo is a Prosthodontist with special training in advanced restorative dental procedures, making him an expert in cosmetic dentistry.
Tooth whitening is one of the most popular procedures performed by the Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist. Availability of over the counter products and a growing array of professional whitening options provide a viable choice for most everyone. While do it yourself kits will whiten teeth, procedures done by a cosmetic dentist tend to have much longer lasting results.
Another commonly requested cosmetic service is straightening. Adults can sometimes experience shifting and misalignment of teeth due to changes in the mouth and gums. With the many recent advances in the field, tooth straightening has become a lot more popular in the adult population.
Veneers Fort Lauderdale and bonding are used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues. Severe staining or discoloration due to age, chipped, broken or misshaped teeth, gaps in teeth or worn down teeth that have become too small in appearance are a few conditions that veneers and bonding can address. Veneers involve adhering a custom molded thin layer of porcelain over the front face of the teeth, where bonding uses a resin composite substance that is brushed over the teeth and later cured and shaped to match the patient's mouth and other teeth.
Both bonding and veneers provide stunning results, and the Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist can expertly perform both procedures. Because a layer of enamel must be removed from the front of the teeth, however, veneers and bonding are irreversible procedures and should be reserved for those who have no other cosmetic options.
When only a few teeth become uneven or misshaped, contouring and reshaping is a viable alternative to full veneers. This pain-free procedure can usually be completed in one visit to the Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist, and the results are quite remarkable.
Gingivectomy and crown lengthening are cosmetic procedures that correct a condition known as "gummy smile". Although not a dental health issue, gummy smiles can be aesthetically unpleasing or embarrassing. Cosmetic dentist Fort Lauderdale can correct this issue with a gingivectomy, which involves removing excess gum tissue and reshaping the gum line. Sometimes a small portion of the upper or lower jawbone is also removed to expose more of the teeth, which is called crown lengthening. Both procedures have quick recovery times and patients are overwhelmingly satisfied with their improved, pleasing smile.
The Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist can perform other cosmetic procedures to correct damage from tooth lost to decay, such as crowns, bridges or replacement of metal fillings with tooth-colored porcelain.
Dr. Sajoo of Sajoo Smiles is happy to discuss these and other cosmetic procedures with you. Please call (954) 563-0606 to schedule an appointment, or visit his website at Dentistryfortlauderdale.com.
