When you want to improve your smile, where do you turn? Because your smile is one of your most visible features, having discolored, crooked or damaged teeth hurts your self-confidence and how others perceive you. Damaged smiles also cause eating and speaking problems. A cosmetic dentist fixes these problems and helps you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Why visit a cosmetic dentist?

Dentists with a specialization in cosmetic dentistry have additional training and experience in techniques to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Whether your teeth are healthy and only need a little whitening, or you have crooked, misshapen or damaged teeth, your cosmetic dental provider helps you achieve a vibrant, healthy and confident smile.

One of the most popular services in cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening provides an almost instant improvement to your appearance, making you look younger and healthier. As a result, you smile more and with greater self-confidence.

Services of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry includes many advanced treatments and techniques. Below are some of those treatments:

Missing Teeth Replacement

Cosmetic dentistry fills tooth gaps and even improves an entire mouthful of missing teeth. These improvements occur through natural looking restorations. The restorations include dental implants, bridges, crowns, and dentures to complete your smile.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is far more effective than store-bought versions. It’s also safer, now being the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the United States, by far. Your cosmetic dentistry provider whitens your teeth in the dental office and offers take-home teeth whitening kits for a bright white smile.

Teeth Reshaping

Many people have pointed, worn down or oddly shaped teeth. These teeth cause embarrassment for some people. If you have these issues with your teeth, your cosmetic dentist offers techniques for reshaping and improving your teeth. Your solution may include porcelain veneers the dentist shapes to suit your needs.

Restoration of Damaged Teeth

Biting, chewing, and other activities can crack, chip, discolor and wear down our teeth. Bonding and porcelain veneers are some methods of covering damage and enhancing the appearance of teeth. When severe damage occurs, dental crowns cover your entire tooth for enhanced appearance, structure and support.

Straightening Crooked or Misaligned Teeth

Perfectly straight teeth rarely occur naturally. Cosmetic dentists can provide clear braces for teeth straightening to avoid a mouth full of metal. These clear versions involve a set of plastic aligner trays invisible when you wear them. The trays shift your teeth according to a treatment plan, usually involving a new aligner tray every several weeks.

Porcelain veneers also work to improve crooked or misaligned teeth.

Lengthening Small Teeth

If small teeth make you feel self-conscious, cosmetic dentistry enables your dentist to lengthen and shape each tooth for the smile you want. Your dentist helps you select the best shape, color and size veneers for your new smile. These veneers fit neatly into your mouth and appear natural.
