Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that is performed to improve the appearance of the teeth, gums, or bites. The procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry are designed to improve the overall aesthetics of your smile, from the color of the teeth to their alignment. While some cosmetic procedures will help improve the function of the teeth, they are not considered restorative and are not considered medically necessary. Some cosmetic dentistry services may be purely for aesthetic purposes, but they can also help with oral health.

Here are some of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry:

  • Improves the appearance of your smile

  • Improves the quality of your smile
  • Improves your overall quality of life

Cosmetic dental procedures to hide dental defects and have a beautiful smile

  • Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a resin material to correct minor dental flaws. The dentist applies the resin to the tooth, sculpts it into the ideal shape, and cures it with a special light. Once it is finished, the dentist polishes the tooth to give it a natural appearance.

Dental bonding can be used to correct chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, tooth discoloration, and minor cases of teeth misalignment. Dental bonding is also commonly used to treat orthodontic relapse, which is when a retainer is not worn as recommended and the dental alignment begins to shift.

  • Dental crowns

Dental crowns are dental restorations that cover the entire tooth. Dental crowns are custom-made to fit over misshapen teeth, replace missing teeth, or cover dental bridges. Dental crowns are made from porcelain, metal, or zirconia.

  • Dental veneers

Dental veneers are custom-crafted shells of tooth-colored porcelain or ceramic material that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth.

Veneers are ideal for covering up dental defects such as minor chips, cracks, and stains. They are perfect for patients who have minor misalignments. They are also ideal for patients who want to close gaps between teeth. Dental veneers are natural-looking and can last for many years.

  • Dental implants

Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. These posts bond with your jawbone and act as an artificial tooth root. Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution for missing teeth because they act and look just like natural teeth.

  • Dental bridges

A dental bridge is a solution for missing teeth. If one tooth or several teeth are missing, a bridge can replace them. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on both sides of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between. The false teeth are made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of materials.

  • Orthodontics (braces)

Orthodontic treatment may be recommended if you suffer from crooked teeth, an overbite, underbite, or crossbite. Braces work by gently applying pressure to your teeth to move them into the correct alignment. This ultimately results in a straighter, healthier smile.

  • Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening helps remove dark stains from teeth, so your smile will look brighter and more attractive.
