Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on enhancing the beauty of your smile. Truly great cosmetic dentistry requires an artistic approach and an understanding of how various treatments align with a patient’s bone structure and the curve of their smile.
Some of the treatments that fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry include:
As you can see, many of these treatments help to strengthen, protect, or replace teeth, in addition to creating aesthetic improvements. When a treatment serves a restorative need in addition to cosmetic enhancements, it can sometimes be covered under dental insurance.
There are many treatments from which to choose, and it isn’t always clear which options offer the best return on your investment. Your practitioner works closely with you to identify your treatment goals. You’ll also discuss your budget and the timeline of treatments.
Just as no two smiles are ever exactly alike, cosmetic dentistry is never a one-size-fits-all process. Your treatment plan is designed to address your specific needs and can be adjusted as you move through the process.
There is never any pressure to choose one cosmetic option over another. You’ll receive all the details needed to make an informed decision about your care, and you are encouraged to ask questions or express concerns as they arise.
A smile makeover is a term used to describe a combination of cosmetic treatments. In many cases, the best way to create your ideal smile is through a mix of more than one service. For example, you might choose to have a bridge placed to close a gap in your smile, a custom crown to cover a fractured tooth, and professional teeth whitening to brighten your smile.
Many people choose to have a smile makeover to address cosmetic issues that stem from advanced decay. Others are hoping to correct damage sustained during a traumatic injury. There are also congenital issues that can affect the appearance of your smile.
