What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry gives patients many options for restoring a beautiful smile. It may be accomplished by various treatments to correct various problems; the plan always remains to make the smile natural and beautiful. Cosmetic dentistry has become a regular and vital part of dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry is often performed to correct stained, chipped, misshaped, or missing teeth. In some cases, the shape of teeth can even be adjusted. These goals are accomplished using procedures such as the following:

  • Bonding – A white filling is used to re-shape teeth or to cover stained teeth
  • Veneers – thin porcelain shells are placed over problem teeth in an effort to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, or stained teeth.
  • Teeth whitening – this simple procedure is gaining in popularity and uses a bleaching agent to whiten the color of the teeth by several shades.

Ask your dentist for consultation and see what treatment plans might help you achieve the smile of your dreams. He will consider many factors, and he will help you build a reasonable plan of action to regain that confidence to smile, laugh, eat, and speak. You will find yourself being bolder and more assured in social and business settings.
