Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What Services Fall Under Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide variety of services which are designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, and smile. Such services include whitening, addressing crowding or alignment issues, and the use of veneers or crowns to create whiter, more uniform-looking teeth. Cosmetic dentistry assists patients with achieving the smile of their dreams in order to help them feel more confident and it also helps to preserve their teeth and gums so they always look their best.
What Procedures can be Considered Cosmetic Dentistry?
Procedures often requested under the term cosmetic dentistry can include:
- Teeth Whitening- to remove stains and discoloration
- Veneers- To cover deep, internal staining as well as correct gaps, hide chips or cracks, and help teeth appear straight and more uniform
- Crowns- To cover metal fillings, stained teeth, and chipped or broken teeth
- Orthodontics- To straighten teeth, close gaps, and address overcrowding and alignment
Treatment for these issues can change from person to person and the dentist will help you to determine which procedure will be the best fit for your unique needs.
What is a Full Mouth Makeover?
A full mouth makeover is a cosmetic treatment plan which is designed to address multiple issues which affect a person’s smile and mouth as a whole. These treatment plans are carefully designed by a dentist and aimed at treating the cosmetic as well as functional problems with a patient’s smile, teeth, and gums. This type of procedure is best for people who have a variety of issues which they want to be treated such as teeth crowding, stains, chipped teeth, and gaps. Commonly, in this type of procedure, a combination of whitening, veneers or crowns, and possibly orthodontics will be used to help patients create an entirely different smile.
