There are many reasons why people choose to have cosmetic or restorative dental procedures. Some of the more common ones are due to discoloration, chips, gaps and a variety of irregularities. No matter what the issue, the primary goal is to have a beautiful, bright, well-aligned smile. Among the procedures many opt for are bleaching, bonding, reshaping, crowns and veneers. In addition to improving your appearance, these procedures can address other oral problems as well but the condition of your teeth dictates much of what you can do.
