What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry includes any treatment or procedure meant to improve the appearance of your teeth. Orthodontics, teeth whitening, veneers, and replacement teeth are just a few of the treatments patients commonly request from their cosmetic dentist.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Your smile comes with you everywhere you go. If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, taking action provides an immediate boost to your happiness and self-confidence--and often takes years off the appearance of your teeth.
Many patients have had braces in the past, but still wish their teeth were a bit straighter. Other patients aren’t happy with the way their teeth have built up stains over the years. Still others have lost teeth from decay, or have silver-colored dental work they’d like to replace. Whatever the cause of your dissatisfaction, cosmetic dentistry has a solution.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Invisalign: Clear orthodontic trays allow you to straighten crooked teeth without the unsightly appearance of metal braces.
Whitening: Lightens the overall shade of your teeth, or reduces the appearance of stains and spots. Keep in mind that whitening procedures done by a cosmetic dentist are gentler and safer than the home kits!
Tooth bonding: A tooth-colored composite material is used to re-create the shape of your teeth. Allows you to smooth out rough edges, alter the length or width of teeth, or make slightly crooked teeth appear straighter.
Veneers: An entirely new tooth shape is created from porcelain or composite material and bonded to your natural teeth.
Tooth and gum contouring: A soft tissue laser removes excess “gumminess” and makes the shape of your gumline more aesthetically pleasing.
Dental implants: If you’re missing teeth, metal implants can be placed into your jawbone and covered with beautiful replacement teeth.
