Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes everything from subtle touch-ups to major corrections, but usually, these kinds of procedures are meant to improve the natural appearance of your teeth. For example, if you have a chipped front tooth due to an accident, cosmetic dentistry can help. Similarly, if you want to brighten your teeth or fix an alignment issue, cosmetic dentistry is again the answer.

That does not mean cosmetic dentistry is purely superficial, however. In fact, many cosmetic procedures can improve oral hygiene or prevent future problems from occurring. You should discuss these benefits with your dentist before starting a treatment plan.

What are the Common Procedures?

There are many possible procedures if you are considering cosmetic dentistry. Two of the most common treatments are applying veneers and undergoing teeth whitening. The latter is a relatively simple process that applies special whitening agents to your teeth to make them appear much brighter. Veneers, on the other hand, are small tooth-colored shells that go over your teeth, fixing structural issues while improving the look of your smile.

How Do You Choose a Treatment?

Choosing the right treatment plan for you is more a matter of diagnosing your oral issues and brainstorming possible solutions. For instance, if you have a chipped front tooth, veneers might be a good option while darkened teeth might be corrected with teeth whitening. The condition of your teeth will ultimately decide the best treatment, so you should look at all the alternatives with your dentist before picking a course of action.

Some of the questions you should ask include: What will you look like after the treatment? What are the disadvantages of the treatment? What is the expected upkeep following the treatment?
