In the simplest of terms, the purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve your smile by positively changing the appearance of your teeth. When you mention this branch of dentistry, most individuals immediately think of dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and/or whitening of the teeth. However, it goes beyond this. The treatment provided by an experienced and highly skilled cosmetic dentist can not only help to improve your appearance by improving your smile, they can even help to restore your confidence and your self-esteem.
What Is Involved?
It follows that cosmetic dentistry not only improves the health of your teeth, but it also helps to improve their aesthetic value in the process. Additionally, it typically involves one of the following procedures:
- Adding dental material to the gums or teeth – examples of this include bonding, caps or crowns, gum grafts, and laminates or porcelain veneers
- Neither the addition or removal of dental materials, gums, or tooth structure – bleaching or teeth whitening as well as gum depigmentation are common examples of this
- Removing gum or tooth structures – includes enameloplasty, gingivectomy, and similar procedures
- Straightening teeth to improve facial appearance – this is more commonly referred to as orthodontics
