Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is oral health care that provides aesthetic benefits to your teeth, gums, and mouth. Dr. Bajwa provides cosmetic dentistry to his patients, with an emphasis on addressing imperfections, including:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • misalignment (crooked teeth)
  • discoloration
  • missing teeth

Modern cosmetic dentistry is effective and reliable. Many patients count on it to restore their smiles and boost their self-confidence.

What types of cosmetic dentistry services are available?

Dr. Bajwa offers several cosmetic dentistry services, including:

Dental implants

Implants are metal posts Dr. Bajwa inserts into your jawbone. They fuse naturally to the bone and provide excellent support for replacement teeth, which can limit slipping and shifting.

Teeth whitening

A short appointment is all you need to leave the office with teeth that are several shades whiter. You can make it happen over the course of your lunch break. Dr. Bajwa can also provide take-home whitening trays that allow you to brighten your smile on your schedule.

Veneers

Veneers are durable, thin porcelain layerings that Dr. Bajwa bonds over your natural teeth to conceal chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. They’re sturdy and are custom-made to match the shade of your natural teeth.

What type of results can I expect from cosmetic dentistry?

You can expect effective, high-quality results that enhance or restore your smile.

Beyond the aesthetic benefits, cosmetic dentistry can also provide a host of oral health benefits. For instance, undergoing a procedure to fill a gap in your smile, as you would with dental implants or bridges, can help prevent neighboring teeth from shifting. Shifting can lead to problems like decay, tooth loss, and gum disease.

Is cosmetic dentistry safe?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry is perfectly safe. As with all dental procedures, some potential risks are involved, such as minor bruising, swelling, or tooth sensitivity. If needed, Dr. Bajwa will prescribe pain medication to limit any discomfort after the procedure.

If you experience any severe symptoms after a cosmetic dentistry procedure, such as severe headaches, you should let the office know right away.
