Do you think you've got nothing to smile about due to problems with your teeth? Cosmetic dentistry treatments can give you the smile you cosmetic dentistrydeserve. Winter Park, FL, cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Outlaw, discusses a few procedures you'll want to consider.

Cosmetic bonding

Do you want to repair damage to your teeth or lengthen a tooth that's a little too short? Cosmetic bonding offers a relatively inexpensive way to treat these problems and is also ideal for hiding discolorations or filling in small spaces between teeth. Composite resin, a soft plastic material, is applied to your teeth to address your cosmetic issues. After the resin is exposed to a curing light, it hardens and looks just like tooth enamel.

Tooth-colored fillings

Cosmetic resin is also used for fillings. The material is tinted to match the most common tooth shades, which means it will be impossible to tell that you ever had a filling when you open your mouth.

Tooth contouring and reshaping

Sometimes one or two teeth don't match the rest of your smile. If you would like a more uniform smile, you'll want to visit our Winter Park office for tooth contouring and reshaping treatment. Small amounts of tooth enamel are removed during the cosmetic dentistry procedure to slightly alter teeth. Contouring and reshaping is a good option if small sections of your teeth overlap or are pointed, or you want to make one tooth a little shorter.

Tooth replacement options

There's no need to live with an incomplete smile, thanks to these three effective tooth replacement options:

Bridges: Bridges replace missing teeth with a device that consists of artificial teeth attached to two crowns. Both permanent and removable bridges are available.

Dentures: Full or partial dentures improve the way you look and also restore functionality. Once you receive your dentures, eating will be a much more pleasant experience.

Dental Implants: Dental implants offer a permanent solution if you've lost teeth. Implants are designed to replace your tooth roots and gradually bond to your jawbone. They're topped with crowns and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Take advantage of one or more of these cosmetic procedures to revitalize your smile. Call Winter Park, FL, cosmetic dentist, Dr. James Outlaw, at (407) 671-6506 to schedule your visit.
