Cosmetic dentistry covers a broad range of treatments to help improve your smile, bite and alignment of teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can be critical for self confidence in some cases, but also serves to improve oral health. For example, straightening teeth can reduce the amount of bacterial build-up therefore reducing gum and periodontal disease, while creating an oral environment that is easier to maintain.
Types of Cosmetic Procedures
- Dental Veneers are thin, tooth shaped restorations customized and made specifically for you by a dental laboratory. The are bonded to the outer surface of your tooth and are able to improve shape, size and mild malalignment of teeth. Additionally, they can fix pitted and stained teeth, as well as close unwanted gaps between teeth.
- Teeth Whitening (or bleaching) is a non-invasive at-home or in-office option for brightening your smile. Teeth whitening cannot work on crowns or veneers, and will only whiten natural teeth. We would love to help you attain a whiter and brighter looking smile by working through the best option for you.
- Botox and Invisalign are other forms of cosmetic procedures in our dental office, please see their sections for more information
