Cosmetic Dentistry   Q & A

Cosmetic dentistry's primary function is to improve the appearance of a patient's smile and teeth. Several procedures used in cosmetic dentistry also support oral health while improving the appearance of the teeth. For instance, closing gaps between teeth can make it easier to keep teeth and gums healthy and make it more difficult for disease-causing bacteria to invade the gum tissue and cause gum disease.
Cosmetic dentistry includes treatments and procedures to address aesthetic issues so patients can feel more attractive and more confident in the way their teeth smile appear. Several of the procedures that improve the appearance of the patient's smile can include:

-  Replacing missing teeth
-  Repairing over or under bites
-  Improving discoloration of teeth
-  Fixing unattractive gaps between teeth
-  Updating older, unattractive dental treatments
-  Improving the size shape and alignment of teeth
-  Fixing broken, decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth

Before any procedure is performed, a consultation visit ensures patients receive the best treatment options to help them address their specific concerns and achieve the smile they deserve.
When looking for a cosmetic dentist, you should ask for references, and before and after photos of the work to show you the results of his or her work on other patients. This will allow you to see if the work meets your expectations.
