Which Cosmetic Dental Procedures are Often Combined?

Why and when do you need to combine cosmetic dental procedures?

If you are prepared to address various aesthetic dental problems and you want to attain your goals as quickly as possible, combining operations is a wonderful concept for you to consider. Nevertheless, certain therapies can be carried out concurrently with greater ease than others can. The following examples represent the most typical circumstances; the appropriate actions should be carried out in the sequence presented. When the Alignment of the Teeth Is Necessary Straightening teeth with Invisalign® is a fantastic option for orthodontic treatment. This method can be integrated with a number of different processes, although doing so takes quite a bit of time. invisalign The process of straightening teeth typically comes first in the order of dental procedures because of the length of time it requires. However, extra aesthetic dental care may be performed while the patient is wearing their Invisalign® transparent aligners. These procedures may include the following:
  • Dental implants: In some cases, the process of preparing the gums and jawbone to receive dental implants can begin while the patient is undergoing treatment with Invisalign®. In this method, by the time your teeth are completed being straightened, the gum and bone that lies beneath them may have improved to the point where they are healthy enough to accommodate the implant.
  • Teeth whitening — During the final two weeks of treatment, you can use the Invisalign® aligner trays in conjunction with a professional strength teeth whitener that you apply at home. This will result in teeth that are straight as well as white and sparkling.
  • When your treatment with Invisalign® is complete, you have the option of incorporating additional aesthetic dental procedures, including as veneers or bonding, to address issues such as chipped teeth, deeply stained teeth, or worn down teeth. Porcelain veneers are an option for patients who have slightly mild cases of slightly crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth.
  • When a Single Tooth or several Teeth Need to Be Replaced Dental implants can support bridges and dentures in order to replace several teeth, or they can replace a single tooth on their own. As was noted before, if you still have the majority of your natural teeth and would like to have them straightened first, you might be able to do so if their health and the condition of your gums are good enough.
Aside from that, the following aesthetic procedures can be carried out either before or after the implant(s) are inserted:
  • Teeth whitening — Brighten the color of your natural teeth before going to get the color of your implant crown matched. After having your implant installed, you will be able to enjoy a grin that is naturally brighter thanks to this method. It is essential to keep in mind that restorations such as crowns and veneers cannot have their color lightened at a later time.
  • Crowns, veneers, and bonding - After having your teeth whitened and getting implants, you can treat other issues such as severe discoloration that does not respond to whitening or structural damage to your natural teeth with crowns, veneers, and bonding. Crowns made of porcelain, veneers, or dental bonding are all viable options for achieving this result.
If your teeth are only slightly crooked or if you have only a few crooked teeth, veneers may be a better option for you than orthodontic therapy. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. Why the Sequence of Your Cosmetic Dental Procedures Is Important If you get your dental work done in the correct order, each procedure will work more effectively, which will result in the greatest possible outcomes. To briefly recap, it is imperative that dental caries, gum disease, and infections be treated first before undergoing any cosmetic dental procedures.cosmetic dentistry The following steps should be taken in the following order for your cosmetic dental care once the health of your smile has been addressed:
  1. Orthodontics - Straightening crooked or mismatched teeth is the initial step in this process.
  2. Tooth whitening: If you are thinking about getting your teeth whitened, you should do so before getting a restoration.
  3. Tooth replacement: Before deciding between an implant and a fixed bridge to replace a missing tooth, you should address any difficulties with the appearance of your natural teeth, such as crookedness or discoloration, first.
  4. Teeth that have been damaged It is important to treat the appearance of teeth that are damaged. This includes teeth that are tiny, malformed, chipped, fractured, cracked, or somewhat misaligned.
