Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

by Alan Horlick, DDS

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your teeth and your overall smile. While many dental procedures are carried out to fix or prevent a problem that affects your oral health, this type of dentistry primarily aims to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Some cosmetic procedures do help or prevent problems such as chips and breaks and can help to maintain your overall dental health.

What Procedures Are Part of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic Dentistry is a group of procedures or treatments which are designed to improve the aesthetic appeal of a patient’s gums, teeth, and smile. Cosmetic dentistry includes:

  • Alignment and crowding correction
  • Application of porcelain veneers or crowns
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Full mouth restorations
  • Teeth Whitening

These treatments and others assist patients with achieving the smile they deserve in order to make them feel more confident. They can also assist to address functional concerns in addition to keeping teeth and gums protected.

What dental issues can be fixed with cosmetic dentistry procedures?

You can choose from many cosmetic procedures, including:

  • Replace missing teeth with dentures or with natural-looking replacement teeth through dental implants
  • Replace missing teeth with artificial teeth or a bridge
  • Straighten teeth through orthodontic methods or aligners
  • Brighten the color of teeth through whitening
  • Fix cracks, breaks, chips, and gaps with bonding
  • Cover a tooth that’s misshapen, weak or has other problems with a crown that covers the whole tooth
  • Cover the front of stained, misshapen, chipped or other problematic teeth with veneers
  • Change the shape, length and/or position of your teeth through enamel shaping and contouring
  • Fix cavities and problems with fillings that match the tone of your original teeth
  • Gain additional benefits through other procedures that change the look of your gums and teeth

Is a Cosmetic Dentist Different From a Restorative Dentist?

Both types of dentists have gone through extensive education in dentistry and know how to perform a variety of dental procedures. The main difference is the focus: Restorative dentists focus on fixing teeth for function, while cosmetic dentists focus on function along with beauty.
