Cosmetic dentistry is often seen as an esthetics-first field of dental medicine. However, this statement should not be taken negatively, as the improvement of one’s smile presents a plethora of benefits. In fact, one could say that cosmetic dentistry and the different smile makeover treatments offered can change a patient’s life for the better.

Veneers. Veneers are thin dental appliances used to repair crooked, chipped, broken and even misaligned teeth.

Dental crowns. Dental crowns are cemented over damaged teeth and is used to restore its function and improve the appearance, shape and even alignment of damaged teeth.

Bonding. Bonding is considered as a quick-fix for repairing decayed, chipped, fractured, and even discolored teeth.

Orthodontics. This includes the use of a variety of dental appliances, such as Invisalign, lingual braces, retainers and/or traditional metal braces helping move teeth into their proper position, correcting malocclusions and improving the appearance of one’s smile.

Dental implants. Implants are basically artificial teeth that are bonded to a titanium screw that’s inserted directly into your bones.

Bridges and partials. Inexpensive and quick, bridges are simply anchored into the opposing teeth, where they’re placed permanently. Though, they’ll have to be removed for cleaning and maintenance.

Unsightly gums. Using soft tissue lasers, the gum lines are the teeth can be recreated to make them look better.

Teeth whitening. Cosmetic dentists can whiten teeth in a variety of ways, depending on their patient’s needs, wants and what they can afford.
