Cosmetic dentistry is a specific discipline of general dentistry that is intended to improve the appearance of teeth. There are several applications offered by a dentist like Dr. Milla Openko and the specialists at Milla Openko, DMD.
The specific nature and severity of the imperfections to your teeth, will determine the best cosmetic restoration needed for your teeth.
If your teeth have been significantly altered by the appearance of chronic dental stains, or minor physical defects, Dr. Milla Openko might recommend improving the appearance of your teeth with dental veneers.
They will need to be created at a state of the art dental lab, from either dental grade porcelain or a composite resin material. Each dental veneer will match the natural shape of the specific tooth and be shaded to appear like naturally white tooth enamel.
When the dental veneers are ready, you will need to return to Milla Openko, DMD to have them installed. This process calls removing a miniscule amount of existing tooth enamel from the face of each tooth intended for a dental veneer. This will provide an etched surface capable of bonding the dental work with dental adhesive.
If you are in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, area and you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, you should call 412.885.5590 to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Milla Openko.
