What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a term for any procedure that alters, reorients or replaces teeth to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

What can we categorize as Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many types of dentists are trained in various areas of Cosmetic Dentistry. Though dentists sometimes categorize various dental procedures under other branches of dentistry, this should give you a basic idea of where exactly cosmetic dentistry fits.

Orthodontics: Braces and other orthodontic devices were invented to alter and reorient the placement of your teeth and jaw over time. Though straight teeth and a proper bite are major factors to the long-term health of your teeth, it also creates a very pleasing appearance.

Restoration: Are your teeth are discolored, decayed or chipped? Veneers or crowns can restore your smile. Most modern dentists use porcelain veneers and crowns to match the look of your natural teeth. Dental bonding, wherein composite materials are chemically bonded to your teeth, is a quick, noninvasive procedure designed to improve the look of your smile. Truman Village Family Dental offers this service as well as in-office teeth whitening.

Tooth Replacement: Dental implants, bridges and even dentures fit into this category because they replace your lost teeth, improving the overall cosmetic appeal of your smile.
