What is cosmetic dentistry? 

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your smile rather than repairing a broken tooth to make it function correctly. Cosmetic treatments are not necessary to chewing or eating and only serve to give you a look you love. However, many cosmetic treatments can also restore a tooth and, on the other hand, many restorative procedures also improve a tooth aesthetically.

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

  • Veneers: Dental veneers act as a facade, covering the surface of the tooth to completely renew its appearance. The veneer itself is a super-thin shell of porcelain which can change the shape, length, width, and color of the tooth.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants permanently replace a missing tooth with a natural-looking prosthetic tooth. Your dentist implants dental implants directly into the jawbone, where they remain for the rest of your life to form a sturdy foundation for your replacement tooth.
  • Zoom Teeth Whitening: Zoom teeth whitening is a procedure which can take place in a single dental visit and provide big results. You can work with your dentist to determine the strength of the treatment and ensure that you get the look you want.
  • Dentures: Patients missing all their teeth can benefit from dentures, which replace an arch of missing teeth to allow patients to eat, chew, speak, and smile once more. Dentures can be a traditional, full denture, a partial denture which incorporates any remaining healthy teeth into its design, or even an implant-supported denture which takes advantage of dental implant technology to stay permanently in the mouth.
