Cosmetic Dentistry is a combination of the art and science of creating an attractive smile, sometimes referred to as a smile makeover. This is accomplished by using state of the art aesthetic materials and techniques in order to achieve the best smile possible for a single individual.
Regular general dentistry is primarily concerned with curing or eliminating pathologic conditions in the mouth and replacing or restoring teeth with a variety of dental materials. The emphasis is on function more than cosmetics.
Dental implants are a new way of replacing single, or a whole set of completely missing teeth, and are a real alternative to dentures for people who have a lot of missing teeth.
Veneers offer one of the best cosmetic dentistry options for people wanting whiter teeth than bleaching can achieve or who want to camouflage spaces between “gappy” teeth and/or overcrowded teeth.
Gummy smiles are a common problem, caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue that then covers the teeth. This can be easily corrected with a procedure known as a cosmetic gum lifting or contouring.
There are various alternatives to traditional metal braces now available, including clear aligners and lingual braces.
Your dentist can restore teeth to a more natural, pleasing appearance with a variety of different techniques and procedures including replacement fillings, bonding, crowns and bridges.
Tooth bleaching or whitening is not new in dentistry; in fact some techniques are 120 years old! Modern whitening, however, is simple, safe and involves no major dental work or damage to your teeth.
