What Dental Procedures are Considered Cosmetic?

The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your smile. In some cases, your teeth can be restored for better tooth function along with a smile makeover. It takes years of practice and study for dentists to be able to perform cosmetic dental treatment. What are some examples of cosmetic procedures?

Cosmetic Dental Treatments include:

Veneers- These tooth-colored, hard, thin shells are made to cover the front teeth. They help to improve the shape and appearance of your teeth.

Bonding- A tooth-colored material that attaches to teeth to help improve the tooth’s appearance and shape, especially on chipped teeth.

Teeth Whitening- Brightening your teeth with gel in trays at home over a period of a couple weeks or a whitening procedure at your dental office in one day.

White Fillings – The fillings today are almost unnoticeable because they match your teeth so well. They help to strengthen your teeth too!

Gum Reshaping / Gingival Recontouring – This minor surgery or laser procedure helps to trim and re-shape your gumline to improve the appearance of your smile.

Tooth Recontouring – A laser or a drill is used by the dentist to reshape or smooth out rough edges of your tooth, giving it a natural form.

Clear Tooth Alignment – Clear orthodontic aligners are used to straighten teeth instead of the traditional metal braces.

Porcelain Crowns- Teeth that are cracked or broken off at the top area, can be restored with these tooth-colored crowns.
