Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry focused on improving the appearance of the teeth, gums, and overall smile. While cosmetic dentistry does address aesthetic concerns, it also supports the health and function of the teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentists are trained to care for the overall wellness of their patients’ mouths. This encompasses both function and aesthetics.
You can choose from a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures if you want to improve your smile. At Rocky View Family Dental, our dentist will examine your smile during your consultation and then discuss which treatments can help you achieve the smile you want.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell our dentist can bond to the front of your tooth to cover chips, cracks, and other surface-level imperfections.
This is a quick procedure that can improve the whiteness of your smile by several shades. Most patients achieve dramatically brighter smiles after a single professional treatment.
This procedure uses a composite material that matches the color of your teeth to repair minor imperfections. The composite resin is molded over the tooth’s surface and hardened with a curing light. A small amount of tooth structure is removed to make room for the material before it is applied. Bonding can repair chips in enamel and fill in small gaps between the teeth.
The Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry
Whether you are bothered by the appearance of a single tooth or multiple teeth, cosmetic dentistry offers several solutions to improve your smile. From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers and dental crowns, you can find a solution to virtually any cosmetic flaw.
A wide range of cosmetic dental procedures is available to enhance the look as well as the function of your teeth. For example, crowns can restore damaged teeth to their original strength, and orthodontic treatments like Invisalign can straighten crooked teeth and correct bite issues.
Your natural teeth and gums play an important role in speaking and eating properly. Cosmetic dental treatments can restore your oral health and improve your comfort when eating and speaking.
Finally, the ultimate goal of cosmetic dentistry is to restore your confidence in your appearance. A beautiful smile is something to be happy about and proud of!
