As dentists, we tend to provide certain types of care to patients of certain age groups. In children, we work to educate them about proper oral hygiene techniques. With seniors, we are often more focused on restorative care. When it comes to young adults, we find that in many cases, they are concerned with the aesthetics of the smile. At Artistic Expressions Dentistry, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of the smile. To learn more about cosmetic dental care for young adults, contact our Philadelphia, PA practice today.
Crooked, widely spaced, or overlapping teeth can detract from a young adult’s professional image. However, most young adults don’t want to wear metal braces. For men and women who want straighter teeth without metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® is a great solution. Invisalign® consists of a series of removable, clear aligners that reposition the teeth.
Porcelain veneers address the shape, size, position, and overall appearance of the anterior teeth. Veneers are made of custom-shaded porcelain, crafted by hand in a dental lab. Each veneer is designed individually to cover the front surface of a tooth.
Though age isn’t a factor in tooth discoloration in young adults, drinking wine and coffee can cause teeth stains. Smoking, eating dark foods, and smoking cigarettes also stains the teeth. For topical stains, professional-grade teeth whitening offers a safe and highly effective solution. Stains that originate inside teeth, such as fluorosis, require treatment with bonding or veneers.
If porcelain veneers aren’t in the budget, but you need chips, stains, and wide spaces corrected, dental bonding may be your best option. Bonding is accomplished by applying tooth-colored composite resin to mask flaws or add structure to one or more teeth. Bonding does not last as long as veneers, but costs less and is a practical option for young adults on a budget.
We use tooth-colored composite resin fillings for natural-looking results. Tooth-colored fillings treat mild to moderate tooth decay and can last for many years, with good oral hygiene.
We offer ceramic dental crowns, custom shaded to blend with the color of neighboring teeth. Ceramic crowns are ideal for the front and back teeth. They lend strength and support to the tooth without compromising its appearance.
