You go to the dentist for regular check-ups to keep your smile healthy. You go to the dentist when you’re experiencing an oral issue and you need a specific treatment. But did you know you can go to the dentist to improve the appearance of your smile as well?
This field of dental care is called cosmetic dentistry. The whole purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the “cosmetics” or aesthetics of your smile. As there are many different factors that contribute to the way your smile looks, there are many different cosmetic dental treatments available to you. These are some of the most common procedures and their benefits:
Teeth whitening is probably the most well-known cosmetic dental treatment. With professional teeth whitening, you can boost the color of your teeth so they’re whiter and brighter. Having whiter teeth not only looks more attractive, it also makes your teeth look healthier and can make your smile look younger too.
Compared to braces, ClearCorrect aligner therapy offers another, more discreet way to straighten your teeth. With this treatment, you can fix issues like gaps, crowding, and crookedness all with the help of barely noticeable aligners that fit snugly over your teeth.
Invisalign offers the same benefits of ClearCorrect. This popular orthodontic treatment shifts teeth into their perfect positions using clear aligners rather than brackets and wires like with braces. If you hide your smile because of misaligned teeth, Invisalign can help.
With bonding, we apply a composite resin material over your teeth to fix things like discoloration, damage, or small gaps. It’s a versatile treatment that can be fully customized to you depending on your unique smile needs.
Veneers offer similar benefits to bonding but involve a different procedure. With veneers, we bond a thin shell of porcelain or composite material over your teeth to cover up aesthetic imperfections related to color, size, and shape.
