What Issues Can Cosmetic Dentistry Address?

The most common conditions that cosmetic dentists work with include:

  • Missing teeth
  • Stained and discolored teeth
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
  • Gaps and misalignment of teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Undersized and uneven teeth

A cosmetic dentist can close gaps between teeth, elongate or enlarge a small tooth and create symmetry in uneven or mismatched teeth. A smile makeover can make tooth staining or discoloration disappear and even replace a missing tooth.

What Cosmetic Dentistry Techniques Are Used in a Smile Makeover?

Cosmetic dentistry uses a variety of procedures and techniques to achieve your goals. The most common techniques used are:

  • Dental implants – implants replace missing teeth and help prevent bone loss in the jaw. Implants look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers – veneers are thin coverings permanently attached to the surface of the tooth. They can cover a stained tooth and correct the appearance of a misshapen or misaligned tooth.
  • Dental crowns – crowns cover the entire tooth, restoring its appearance and protecting the tooth structure. Crowns are ideal for cracked, worn, decayed or misshapen teeth.
  • Teeth whitening – this procedure addresses staining that occurs from medication, drinking coffee and red wine and tobacco stains.
  • Composite bonding – bonding describes a procedure in which the dentist applies a composite material to a damaged or decayed area of the tooth and forms it to achieve a specific goal.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

If you hide your smile behind your hand or closed lips – or if you’re simply uncomfortable letting anyone see your teeth – you are likely a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry and a smile makeover.

Research shows that an attractive smile can improve both your social and career potential, not to mention improve your self-confidence and self-image.
