What is considered cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry has reached its way even into general dentistry. There are many different cosmetic options available to help you stay or improve your confidence about your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Many adults believe that simply whitening your teeth is one of the best ways to enhance your smile. It turns out that it is also one of the fastest and cheapest ways to give your smile that extra wow factor. The dentist will use a whitening agent on the teeth (some will use it in conjunction with a light accelerator) that is much more powerful than over the counter options.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Not only does replacing missing teeth provide the proper support for your facial structure to remain in tact, but it also gives your mouth a more natural appearance. Dental implants are matched with neighboring teeth and are incredibly difficult to notice. They last many years and provide great, stable support.


Missing teeth can cause many people to feel uncomfortable about their smile. Dentures are a great option to spruce up your smile. Whether complete dentures are needed for a mouth that is missing all its teeth, or partial dentures for a mouth that is missing a few teeth, dentures can help. While dental implants provide more stability and less irritation, dentures are still a great way to increase mouth function and appearance.


Fillings are often thought of as that metallic-colored tooth that stands out like a sore thumb in your mouth. These unsightly metals are now being replaced with plenty of options that restore tooth function, replace tooth structure that has been lost to tooth decay, and still blend in with the mouth. High quality materials like porcelain are used for fillings that make the filling unnoticeable. The look, feel, and function represent that of natural teeth. Less repair work is needed and make it almost impossible to tell that you have a filling.


Straightening the teeth and correcting the bite of the mouth are one of the most important uses of cosmetic dentistry. Proper teeth placement and mouth alignment is essential to maintaining your oral health.

Invisible or clear dentistry (like Invisalign) is used to help correct common teeth problems without the unsightly metal that takes over your whole smile. You will feel confident smiling even while your teeth are adjusting to their new position.

Porcelain Veneers, Crowns and Bridges

Porcelain is one of the best natural properties of dental work. Its esthetic effect can be color matched to the neighboring teeth, allowing it to completely blend in to the mouth. Veneers, crowns and bridges are all available in porcelain and can be used to enhance your smile while making it durable and functional.

With dental care advancing so fast, there is no need to settle anymore. You can have both a healthy mouth and a beautiful mouth regardless of the issues that may arise with your teeth.
