Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A



What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Numerous services which have been designed to improve the look of a patient’s teeth, gums, and smile fall under cosmetic dentistry. Services which are a big part of cosmetic dentistry are whitening, use of crowns or veneers, correcting crowding or alignment issues, and remodeling a person’s smile with multiple procedures. The most commonly performed treatment is teeth whitening, followed by the use of crowns or veneers. Crowns and veneers can help make teeth which have deep internal stains appear whiter. Cosmetic dentistry helps patients feel confident and proud of their teeth and gums by correcting aesthetic issues including alignment and color. Cosmetic dentistry can also work to reconstruct a person’s mouth to help improve function while improving the look as well.

What Treatments Fall Under Cosmetic Dentistry?

Treatments which are a part of cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Teeth Whitening- performed to remove surface stains from teeth.
  • Veneers- Used to cover deep stains, hide cracks or chips, correct gaps, and make teeth appear more uniform in size and straighter overall.
  • Crowns- Used to cover stained teeth, metal fillings, and broken or chipped teeth.
  • Orthodontics- This is a combination of treatments which are employed to correct concerns with crowding and alignment. It can include moving teeth into place, closing gaps, and shifting teeth which are overlapping.

The dentist will go over each available option with patients to help make sure they choose the option which accommodates their requirements the best.

What if I Have More Than One Concern?

Full mouth makeovers or reconstructions are designed to address multiple dental and cosmetic concerns which are present in a single patient. These procedures can correct or address a patient’s smile and mouth together. The dentist will create a treatment schedule which will be designed to ensure optimal function of a patient’s mouth while correcting any cosmetic issues. For those with issues of chipped teeth, crowding, discoloration, and gaps a full mouth reconstruction can be the best option. During this treatment, the dentist will use a combination of orthodontic options, veneers or crowns, and whitening to fix all issues present.
