Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on creating a positive change to your appearance, particularly of your teeth, gums and/or bite. Most think of tooth whitening or veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more.
Cosmetic dentistry may involve:
The addition of a dental material to teeth or gums such as cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, and cosmetic gum grafting.
The removal of tooth structure or gums such as cosmetic recontouring or cosmetic gingivectomy.
Straightening of teeth accompanied by improvement in the appearance of the face such as Orthodontic treatment.
Whitening or Teeth bleaching to lightening discolored teeth.
A skilled, experienced cosmetic dentist can help to improve your appearance, your smile, even your self-esteem, and confidence. Today, cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve to where cosmetic dentists can address functional and esthetic patient concerns.
