Cosmetic Dentistry Overview

Dentistry involves more than just filling cavities, performing root canals, and pulling teeth. Although repairing and cleaning your teeth is an important aspect of dental health, dentistry can also improve your appearance, especially the field of cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry is any dental procedure that allows you to customize your smile and improve the aesthetics of your teeth. With our cosmetic dentistry services, you can repair flaws, restore your full smile, or whiten your teeth. Feel great about your appearance again with cosmetic dentistry!

What Are Some Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Several types of dental treatments fit under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry, including treatments like traditional veneers, Invisalign clear aligners, and more. Many cosmetic dentistry procedures have health benefits as well, so you can improve your smile and your dental health at the same time!

Traditional Veneers

What are veneers? This simple question has a range of different answers, because veneers can serve so many different functions.

Veneers for teeth are ultra-thin shells made from porcelain or composite resin. Dental veneers fit over your natural teeth, providing instant repair and beautification. As a result, dental veneers are ideal for covering the following: 

  • Stained teeth. 
  • Chipped teeth. 
  • A cracked tooth. 
  • Minor gaps between teeth. 

Dental veneers are also designed to be thin, so they take up less space in your mouth and feel like your natural teeth. We’ll need to reshape the front of your tooth to make room for the veneers as well, and then we bond the veneer in place. 

Dental veneers are highly recommended for all kinds of different aesthetic dental issues and can even help reshape small or chipped teeth. Veneers are placed permanently, which means you won’t have to worry about your veneers losing their value over time. They’re also designed to match the color of your natural teeth, so your veneer teeth blend in with your natural smile.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign® aligners are a great example of a cosmetic dentistry technique that also has health benefits. Invisalign clear aligners can straighten your teeth and leave you feeling more confident in your smile, just like traditional braces. Fortunately, clear aligners are discreet and less eye-catching than traditional metal braces.

Because Invisalign aligners are transparent, almost no one will be able to tell you’re in the process of straightening your teeth. Your treatment won’t stand out in photos and it won’t be the first thing people notice when they see you—which can be the case with traditional metal braces.

If you have been longing for straighter teeth, and the thought of having a mouthful of metal has been keeping you from committing to braces, try Invisalign clear aligners instead!
