What Is Cosmetic Dentistry
Any treatment that is performed to improve the look of your teeth falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. Dental professionals have been administering cosmetic procedures for decades, and in ancient times people used shells, stones and animal bones to create makeshift dental restorations. Today, cosmetic dentistry is a $2.75 billion industry.
Top Cosmetic Treatments
Though patients most often go to the dentist’s office because there’s an urgent problem, some go specifically for a cosmetic solution. Here are some of the top cosmetic treatments used in dental offices across the country:
- Braces (Invisalign)
- Ceramic Crowns and veneers
- Porcelain inlays, onlays and tooth colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding and contouring
- Dental implants
- Professional whitening (Zoom)
- Cosmetic Laser Dentistry
Getting Your Perfect Smile
In some cases, your dentist will recommend a combination of cosmetic treatments to help you get your perfect smile. For example, your treatment plan may include Invisalign clear aligners to reposition your teeth and professional whitening to make them look brighter. In some cases your dentist might need to use both veneers and crowns to recreate your smile.
