Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Which dental services are considered cosmetic?

Cosmetic dental work covers services that enhance the look of your teeth, such as whitening and veneers. Cosmetic dentistry services also include dentures, bridges, and dental implants to replace missing teeth and increase functionality.

Replacing silver fillings with a resin composite for a more natural look is also part of dental cosmetics. Your dentist can replace old silver materials with a tooth-colored resin composite, which strengthens the tooth and improves the look of your teeth.

Your dentist can repair broken, chipped, or discolored teeth using a bonding procedure that recreates the natural look of a tooth.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the overall look of your smile to transform the shape or color of your teeth. Benefits include a bigger, brighter smile, a boost in confidence, and a healthier, more functional mouth.

Cosmetic dental services also help improve your ability to chew and talk by replacing missing teeth and correcting crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. These procedures also reduce the stress on your jaw, which can lead to additional medical complications.

How natural-looking are the results?

Your dentist works hard to successfully match colors of bonding, crowns, implants, and veneers to the color of your natural teeth.

Teeth whitening services significantly boost the whiteness of your teeth, giving your whole smile an effective makeover.

For missing teeth, bridges, crowns, and implants fill in the gaps to create a more even smile. The dental lab creates replacement teeth to ensure a good fit, and your dentist shapes them for an even, natural-looking smile.

What can I expect during a cosmetic dental consultation?

Your dentist performs a full physical exam of your teeth and may take digital X-rays for a closer look at your mouth’s health before recommending cosmetic dental services. You discuss your smile goals and learn which options are right for you.

If you’re replacing teeth as part of your cosmetic work, your dentist takes a mold of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants, and dentures.

Will cosmetic dentistry require surgery?

Not all cosmetic procedures require surgery. Your dentist can perform many procedures in the comfort of their office using local anesthesia. More complex options, such as dental implants, do require general anesthesia, putting you into a deep sleep.

Your dentist discusses the procedures with you in detail, so you know what to expect. Some methods may require additional visits to the office to achieve your goals.
