What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry which deals with the aesthetics of dental repair. It can treat general dental problems using advanced techniques that protect the appearance of your smile as well as the health of your teeth.
What can cosmetic dentistry repair?
Cosmetic dentistry can repair virtually any dental issue that harms the aesthetics of your smile. Some of the problems most commonly corrected by cosmetic dentistry include:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Unevenly spaced or sized teeth
- Replacement of metal fillings or dental crowns
What are some common cosmetic dentistry procedures?
One of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening, which produces noticeably whiter teeth in a single dental office visit. Porcelain veneers are another common cosmetic dental treatment, which replaces the front of your teeth with thin porcelain shells to give your teeth a different shape and color. This is a quicker option than many types of orthodontic treatment and can make a dramatic change in the appearance of your smile.
Other popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
Who is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
Almost anyone is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry, whether you are unhappy with the size and shape of your teeth, or you simply would like a whiter smile. Cosmetic dentistry can change the appearance of a single tooth, replace old metal fillings with white fillings, or give you a completely new smile with a smile makeover.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide variety of procedures which vary in cost. However, even if you are looking at a more costly procedure, our office provides a variety of financing options to help you receive the dental care you need when you need it.
Who is qualified to perform cosmetic dentistry procedures?
Only a trained cosmetic dentist is qualified to perform the majority of cosmetic dentistry procedures. You should look for a cosmetic dentist who has taken courses in the type of cosmetic dentistry you are interested in, and who can answer your questions about cosmetic dentistry thoroughly.
