Cosmetic dentistry refers to the aspect of dentistry and related treatments that seek to improve the look of your smile. This consists of a variety of methods, including whiteners, artificial enhancements, gels, replacements, and restorations. Which treatment do you require?

Restorations to improve your smile can be done to your existing teeth. Teeth whitening treatments can improve the look of your smile by removing stains and discolorations. Dental veneers are used to cover the fronts of teeth and improve their look with thin shells. For durable shells that cover all sides of a tooth, dental crowns can be used. If you wish to cover just a small section of a tooth, dental bonding treatments can be used.

In some cases, fixing your smile includes replacing missing teeth. Dentures are temporary replacements that can greatly improve the look of your smile. Dental implants are durable and will blend in with the natural look of your teeth. Dental bridges are also an acceptable restoration to improve the look of your mouth and facial structure and are often a suitable replacement when a patient’s jaw is not strong enough for implants.
