Cosmetic Dentistry: What You Need To Know

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on improving how your smile looks
and restoring your teeth. These changes can be medically based or aesthetically based. Either
way, cosmetic dentistry helps you create a confident smile. In this blog, we’ll talk about the different procedures that cosmetic dentistry involves.

Porcelain Veneers

One of the most common cosmetic dentistry options is porcelain veneers. These are
natural-looking coverings that fit over the front of your teeth. Made from thin, tooth-colored
porcelain, they completely cover the surface of your teeth, giving your smile a whole new look.
The veneers are stain-resistant, maintaining their perfect look long after implementation.
We recommend porcelain veneers to anyone looking to enhance their smile. They can fix problems such as:

● Small teeth
● Gaps in the teeth
● Chipped or broken teeth
● Permanent stains that teeth whitening can’t fix
● Any other aesthetic problem that you want fixed

Dental Implants

Dental implants are highly recommended to anyone who is missing a tooth. Not only will your
mouth function better, but it will look better, too. Missing teeth can lead to a lack of confidence
in your smile, which can be hard on your mental health. Our dental implants look natural, so
your smile will look as good as new.
This procedure does not affect any surrounding teeth, making it an excellent option for people
missing just one or two teeth. The implants are custom fitted to your mouth, making the fit
comfortable and natural.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a procedure that repairs chips or cracks in a tooth to improve its
appearance. A tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth and is hardened with a special light.
The resin is polished to whiten the tooth and make it look natural. This type of cosmetic
dentistry is very common and is recommended for:

● Cracked or chipped teeth
● A discolored tooth
● Change the shape of a tooth/teeth
