What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of the teeth, gums, and/or bite. It is primarily concerned with improving dental aesthetics in terms of color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Teeth Whitening

The process of lightening the color of your teeth is known as tooth whitening or bleaching.Teeth Whitening is frequently desired when teeth have yellowed over time, and it can be accomplished by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth enamel.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth. They hide cracks, chips, stains, and other cosmetic flaws. Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Depending on your objectives, there are several types of veneers available.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that improves your smile by using a tooth-colored composite resin material. This procedure is used to repair chips, close gaps, or alter the shape and color of teeth. Dental bonding, unlike other cosmetic dental treatments such as porcelain veneers, is completely reversible.

Dental Crown

Dental crowns are caps that are placed over damaged teeth. When fillings fail to solve the problem, crowns are used to protect, cover, and restore the shape of your teeth. Metals, porcelain, resin, and ceramics can all be used to make dental crowns. Other than regular good oral hygiene, they usually do not require special care over time.

Inlays and Onlays

In dentistry, inlays and Onlays are used to fill cavities before being cemented into the tooth. This is an alternative to a direct restoration, which is built up within the mouth and is made of composite, amalgam, or glass ionomer.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a prosthetic that connects to the jaw or skull bone to support a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is exactly what the name implies. Dental procedures that alter your smile to your liking are part of the makeover. A smile makeover typically includes porcelain veneers, but many other cosmetic dentistry services can be included as well.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction refers to the rebuilding and/or replacement of all of the teeth in a patient's mouth. To improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth, full-mouth reconstructions combine aesthetics with the science of restorative dentistry.

Common dental problems which are suitable for cosmetic dentistry:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Chipped or Cracked Teeth
  • Stained or Discolored Teeth

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

It Improves Your Appearance

Cosmetic dentistry procedures can help you achieve a healthier, straighter, livelier, and more youthful smile, whether your teeth are crooked, discolored, chipped, cracked, or missing. Cosmetic dental treatments can improve almost all types of dental flaws. Whatever technique you choose, you will love your new smile.

It Improves Your Oral Health

Severely curved teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. Actually, crooked teeth can be detrimental to your oral health. Crooked teeth, like decayed or cracked teeth, can contribute to a variety of other oral health issues such as jaw pain and periodontal disease. You can keep your teeth and gums healthy while having these cosmetic dental issues corrected quickly.

Achieve Better Oral Health

When your teeth are straight and not overlapping, it is much easier for you and your dentist to keep your teeth clean and in good condition. Flossing is easier with straight teeth, and food won't get stuck as often when the gaps are reduced.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cosmetic Dentistry

1. Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?

Certain cosmetic dentistry procedures are typically not covered by insurance, and they are generally the most expensive. For example, teeth whitening is rarely, if ever, covered by insurance. The cost of in-office teeth whitening ranges from $100 to $700, depending on the procedure. Of course, you can buy teeth whitening kits at your local Target or Wal-Mart, but the results will be less impressive and will take much longer to complete.

2. Will my dental insurance cover cosmetic dental treatments?

Since dental treatment is considered planned and can be seen as cosmetic surgery, there are no bespoke plans available for dental treatment. As a result, you can choose dental insurance coverage as part of your health insurance plan.

3. Why should I choose professional teeth whitening over at-home treatments?

Professional whitening solutions are typically stronger than those found in over-the-counter kits, so your teeth may whiten faster. They can also keep sensitive gums from becoming more irritated. Whiteners only work on the tough outer surface of your teeth, known as enamel.

4. How do I fix my gummy smile?

A gingivectomy, crown lengthening, orthognathic surgery, lip repositioning, and botox are some of the procedures available to correct a gummy smile.

5. Will I always need a crown on a broken tooth?

Cracked teeth are fairly common. We often recommend a crown to treat a cracked tooth, but not every type of crack requires a crown to protect your tooth from further damage.

6. What Are the Most Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures?

  • Teeth whitening
  • Composite fillings
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Braces

7. Does Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Oral Health?

Cosmetic dentistry can often help you improve your oral health. Straight, uniformly shaped teeth obtained through bonding, crown placement, or orthodontic treatments are easier to maintain. They are simple to brush and floss, and the risk of plaque becoming trapped in the crevices is greatly reduced. This reduces the risk of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues caused by plaque and tartar.
