Cosmetic Dentistry

SERVICE OVERVIEW

Cosmetic Dentistry deals with fixing your smile and the general appearance of your teeth. Where cosmetic dentistry is concerned, the focus here is the art, not the actual science behind the procedure. Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth and gums. It primarily focuses on improving the Dental Aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. 

Although cosmetic dentistry is not considered a recognized specialty in the Dental Profession, it does take years of extensive studies and training to become a cosmetic dentist and be able to perform the procedures that are available today.  In general terms a cosmetic dentist is actually a restorative dentist who has studied and trained extensively for the concepts of smile design and the usage of dental materials that create the best possible smile for an individual.

Cosmetic dental care is an essential part of our modern life. It may take care of purely aesthetic concerns of the patient (teeth whitening, straightening; etc…).  Also, it may involve fixing teeth that were mechanically damaged or chipped off. Sometimes it involves Dental Filling and Bonding, which are quite simple dental procedures. 

Usually, they do not require numbing or any kind of anesthesia applied. Just with the help of bonding and adhering materials, the damaged tooth area can be easily visually fixed. The same goes for other aesthetic and generally cosmetic dental procedures which we offer. Restorative Solutions – Restoring teeth in bad condition is what we specialize in. It may include laser restoration and Invisalign service. 

 

Bonding & Veneers

Dental Bonding and Porcelain Veneers are two alternative ways to achieve a similar result.  

Typically, veneers and/or bonding are used to correct misaligned, discolored, and chipped/broken teeth. Anywhere from a single tooth to many teeth can be covered with veneers or bonding.  Dental Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that sit on the front layer of your teeth.  They can add length, change the shape and/or improve the color of your teeth. A single veneer can be placed individually to cover just one tooth if that is all that is required.  However, if you want to improve the appearance of your entire smile, you may need to have a full set of veneers so that all the teeth that show when you smile are the same size, color and “shape”. Dental Bonding will stain and veneers will not.
