What is Cosmetic Dentistry? | West Palm Beach Dentist

Are you struggling with the appearance of your teeth? Do you avoid smiling due to the way your teeth look? Cosmetic dentistry may be the perfect choice if you’ve been considering improving your smile. Cosmetic Dentistry offers a wide variety of procedures from teeth whitening to a complete smile makeover. So how do you know what cosmetic procedure is right for you?

Cosmetic Dentistry offers many procedures that can help fix any problem you may have with your teeth! The following is a list of procedures that may help you decide on what one is right for you!

Teeth Whitening- This procedure brightens teeth that have been stained or are discolored. Teeth whitening, or bleaching, can be done in your dentist’s office or at home with a system given to you by your dentist. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are also available to you.

Bonding- This can improve the appearance of your teeth if they are chipped, broken, cracked, stained or have gaps in between them, by bonding a tooth-colored material to your tooth’s surface.

Veneers- Veneers are thin, custom made porcelain shells that cover the front of your teeth to disguise imperfections and discoloration.

Dental Implants- Dental implants are a replacement tooth root and crown for severely damaged or missing teeth. They are extremely natural looking and seamlessly blend in to your existing smile. (requires oral surgery)

Crown Lengthening- This procedure can fix a “gummy” smile or an uneven gum line by removing the excess gum tissue to expose more of your tooth and give you the appearance of longer looking teeth. (requires minor oral surgery)

Tooth Reshaping- This cosmetic procedure involves changing your teeth to improve their appearance by modifying and removing enamel. Tooth shaping, also knowns as dental contouring, is oftentimes combined with bonding

Smile Makeover- This procedure involves a comprehensive assessment of the overall appearance of your teeth and smile. Typically, several cosmetic dentistry procedures are required to restore the look of your smile.

Be sure to consult your dentist before making any decisions, as each procedure has its very own set of requirements and precautions that you should be aware of.
