What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Fixing teeth that are in the smile line. You see these teeth when you smile. Some people have cavities, breaks, or staining on these teeth. Others have perfectly good, no issue, great quality front teeth but simply don’t like the way they look or the color.
How is Cosmetic Dentistry done?
Cosmetic dentistry can be done with something as simple as whitening/bleaching. Cosmetic dentistry can also be done through orthodontics like braces or Invisalign. Lastly, we can achieve an even more beautiful smile via crowns, veneers, or prep-less veneers.
If you are a candidate for prep-less veneers – that is awesome! We use no shots, no drills, and no temporaries all to achieve a beautiful, minimally to non-invasive result. And it’s reversible!
Who does Cosmetic Dentistry?
There is no board certified specialty in cosmetic dentistry. All dentists by trade know how to do cosmetics, but are they any good? You should look for a dentist that has taken additional courses and training. Also making sure they are affiliated with certain organizations like American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Your dentist must partner with a high end laboratory and work with master ceramists in order to deliver an optimal result. Remember sometimes you do truly get what you pay for. Don’t be cheap when it comes to cosmetics.
Why would someone need cosmetic dentistry?
The reasons can vary. One may have multiple cavities disfiguring their smile line, traumatic injury, a car accident, a fall, or simply looking to make their pearly whites glow a little more.
