An Overview of Cosmetic Dentistry
In cosmetic dentistry, the emphasis is on improving the patient’s smile through changing the appearance of the teeth and mouth.
Many people view cosmetic dental practices as being elective treatments – as opposed to necessary dental treatments – but having a beautiful, engaging smile and feeling secure in one’s appearance can make people feel better about themselves and lead to a fuller, happier life.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
There are currently many cosmetic dentistry procedures available.
Among these are:
Composite Bonding – replaces the broken, chipped, and discolored parts of teeth through the use of a special composite material.
Dental Implants – used to replace missing teeth, dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements, and the latest option for teeth replacement.
Dental Veneers – adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth or teeth to cover gaps, cracks, and chips in existing teeth and also to improve the color of the teeth.
Teeth Whitening – the most commonly recommended and practiced cosmetic dental procedure, tooth whitening removes stains on teeth. The cosmetic procedure can be performed at home or in your cosmetic dentist’s office.
