What Does a Cosmetic Dentist Do?

A cosmetic dentist focuses on making improvements to the appearance of your teeth, mouth, gums, and your overall smile. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures include teeth whitening, dental implants, fillings, and veneers. While cosmetic dentistry may not be necessary for health reasons, it can certainly provide a great deal of confidence to people who are unhappy with their smile and their appearance.

In this sense, cosmetic dentists do a great service because they make people feel better about themselves, primarily by improving their appearance. The various types of procedures which a cosmetic dentist skillfully executes can range anywhere from minor fixes to fairly complicated surgeries. All of them have the same purpose however, which is to improve the appearance and the self-confidence of the patient.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures We Offer

  • Dental Veneers - veneers are thin, shell-like devices which are attached to the front teeth, and which cover up chips, cracks, or discolored teeth. They can also reduce the gaps between teeth so you have a more normal-looking smile.
  • Invisalign - if you need any teeth straightened, but dislike the idea of having metal braces installed, Invisalign might be the answer for you. This system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to accomplish teeth-straightening, and is virtually invisible when installed in the mouth. It generally takes less time to accomplish straightening than metal braces do.
  • Dental Crowns - an artificial crown can be installed on top of one of your existing teeth, either to protect the remaining tooth below, or to provide a natural look to the area where one tooth is missing.
  • Teeth Whitening - many people turn to teeth whitening in an effort to improve the appearance of yellowish teeth which are unattractive. Whitening uses hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to break the bonds between stain molecules and the enamel of teeth, so stains can be removed, and the natural whiteness can return.

Reasons to See a Cosmetic Dentist

There are any number of reasons why you might want to consult with a cosmetic dentist. If you have tooth decay which is visible, that might be one reason, as would having any cracks, chips or other damage which is easily visible. People who have crooked teeth or misshapen teeth will often seek cosmetic dentistry as a solution, so their teeth can appear more normal.

People who have missing teeth or teeth which are discolored or stained will also frequently seek out the services of a cosmetic dentist, so their missing tooth can be replaced or their existing teeth can be whitened. A survey conducted by the American Dental Association showed that 33% of people were reluctant to smile because of the condition of their mouth and teeth. These are all reasons why people might seek the services of a skilled cosmetic dentist.
