Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What are common cosmetic dental procedures?

There are many ways to improve your smile, no matter what kind of cosmetic issues you have. Some common dental procedures that Dr. Wu offers include the following:

  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bonding
  • Implant Crowns
  • Dental Implants

How do I know what kind of cosmetic dentistry I need?

Dr. Wu evaluates your smile and recommends cosmetic procedures based on the kind of issues or concerns you have and how severe they are. Keep in mind that critical flaws or damage might require more complex treatment.

For example, you might need to choose veneers rather than teeth whitening if your teeth are severely discolored or stained.  

What are dental implants and implant crowns?

Dental implants are small posts made of titanium which Dr. Wu surgically implants into your jawbone and which integrates with the bone in your jaw.

Implant crowns are the artificial teeth which are attached to the post with a connecting piece that holds the crown firmly in place.

What are crowns?

Dental crowns are coverings that go over damaged teeth or on implants to replace missing teeth.

Crowns on damaged teeth help protect them from further damage by making it harder for bacteria to get in. They also help restore these teeth to their normal function, so you can talk and eat without problems.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges also replace missing teeth but in a different way. Dr. Wu anchors the replacement tooth in place with a bridge that includes the healthy teeth on both sides.

Dr. Wu has to prepare these teeth by removing some of their enamel. She helps you determine whether a dental bridge or dental implant is the best choice for you.

What are veneers?

Dental veneers, which are usually made of porcelain, are thin layers that attach to the surface of your teeth. These veneers help improve your smile by concealing stains or discolorations, filling in gaps, or covering cracks or chips in your teeth.

Dr. Wu applies these veneers to your teeth after removing a small amount of enamel.

What is bonding?

Dental bonding or dental bonds are a composite resin that Dr. Wu applies to your teeth to conceal cosmetic flaws.

These bonds are the color of your natural teeth, which helps them blend in. Dr. Wu can use bonding in place of fillings in some cases.
