Cosmetic dentistry can transform even the most problematic smiles into beautiful works of art. Virtually any smile flaw can be improved with treatments such as porcelain veneers, dental implants, white restorations, and/or teeth whitening.
Following are some ways that cosmetic dentistry produces beautiful smile makeovers.
Conceals Dental Imperfections
Common issues like wear and tear, tooth decay, and dental injuries can negatively affect the appearance of our teeth. Fortunately, cosmetic treatments can hide a number of typical imperfections such as worn dentition, chipped, cracked, and asymmetrical teeth.
Patients have options for concealing imperfections. Some might choose to receive porcelain veneers, which are wafer-thin cosmetic enhancements that are bonded to the anterior sides of teeth. Veneers produce the appearance of a white, proportionate, and straight smile.
Other treatment options for concealing imperfections include dental bonding and white restorations. Dental bonding involves placing a tooth-colored compound over flaws like small chips, cracks, and gaps. For those with flawed teeth that could benefit from reinforcement, white restorations such as crowns and fillings can protect teeth from disease and damage while improving their overall appearance.
Replaces Teeth with Lifelike Prosthetics
Losing teeth can be a huge blow to your self-confidence. Tooth loss also negatively affects your oral health and wellness. There are treatment options for replacing lost teeth without sacrificing comfort or your appearance. Dental implants, for instance, are a popular treatment option because they look and feel like healthy, natural teeth.

Lightens Deep, Permanent Stains
Age and exposure to dark foods and tobacco can significantly dull our smiles. Moreover, store-bought teeth whitening products lack the potency to remove permanent stains. A professional teeth whitening treatment can help. Professional whitening can lighten your smile up to ten shades without causing tooth sensitivity or discomfort.
Cosmetic dentistry can be tailored to your specific needs. Some people might need a simple whitening or bonding treatment to achieve their goals while others might need a combination of different treatments to produce a total smile makeover.
