Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?


Cosmetic dentistry is the art of beautifying your smile. Whether you have chipped teeth, tooth discoloration, unsightly gaps or any other esthetic defect, cosmetic dentistry offers a solution to meet your needs.


Why do we need cosmetic dentistry?


On average, we chew 250,000 times a year. That’s a lot of chewing, which puts lots of pressure and forces onto our teeth. On top of that, a lot of the food we eat, like coffee, sodas, wine and most food additives, cause our teeth to turn dark and yellow. As a result, our teeth turn dark, get chipped and look worn out as we age. Cosmetic dentistry helps reverse these damages and brings your smile to perfection.


The cornerstone of cosmetic dentistry is built on porcelain veneers and invisible braces. Porcelain veneers are small covers which protect your damaged teeth and restore them to their original, healthy condition. Porcelain veneers give you a whiter, straighter smile to shave off years from your appearance. They address multiple cosmetic defects including minor crowding issue, broken teeth and tooth discoloration. Clear braces help move your teeth to straighten them and give you that perfectly straight smile you’ve been dreaming of. Clear braces are ideal for fixing mild to moderate teeth crowding, minor overbites and gaps between your teeth. In addition to porcelain veneers and clear braces, there are many other cosmetic procedures we use to help beautify your smile. Procedures such as crown lengthening, gum recontouring, bridgework, ceramic crowns, etc. are also part of cosmetic dentistry.
