Cosmetic Dentistry

It is a branch of dentistry which deals with any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring. These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.

Cosmetic dentistry involves:

  • Addition of a dental material to teeth or gums, such as: bonding, porcelain veneers (laminates), crowns (caps), gum grafts
  • Removal of tooth structure or gums, like enameloplasty, gingivectomy
  • Improving dental health via teeth whitening (bleaching), laser whitening, gum depigmentation
  • Straightening of teeth accompanied by improvement in appearance of face – orthodontics, Veneers, Dental laminates - Conservative
  • Scaling
