While general dentistry focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry is concerned with improving the look of your smile. There are a number of dental treatments used today that can fall into both categories, both improving the look of your mouth and smile and treating an existing oral problem.

What are some common cosmetic dentistry procedures?

There are a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are performed routinely in dental offices across the country. These include:

  • Teeth Whitening – Remove stains and discoloration.
  • Dental Bridges – Dental bridges fill the gap that is created by missing teeth.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers cover the visible surfaces of your front teeth in order to correct tooth discoloration, and improve the look of teeth that are chipped, poorly spaced, crooked or misshapen.
  • Porcelain Crowns – crowns can be used to repair broken teeth, or teeth with overly large cavities that cannot simply be filled.
  • Reshaping – if you have crooked, misshapen, or chipped teeth, contouring and reshaping can restore them to a more natural appearance.
