Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic improvement of your teeth, gums, and overall smile. Although cosmetic dentistry services might improve your oral health, their primary purpose is to enhance the color, position, and alignment of your teeth in a way that makes you happy and more confident about your smile.
Standard procedures can resolve a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
Cosmetic dentistry services are usually offered by practitioners who also practice traditional dentistry.
A general dentist performs routine exams and cleanings to maintain your optimal oral health. General dentistry also focuses on preventing severe dental conditions such as gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Popular cosmetic dentistry treatments include:
In most cases, you must have healthy teeth and gums to qualify for a cosmetic dental procedure.
While most patients choose cosmetic dental procedures for aesthetic benefits, there are other advantages.
For example, a crown covers an injured tooth and is designed to protect that tooth from further damage. Crowns also offer additional support to the surrounding teeth so they won’t shift or become misaligned.
Dental implants and bridges fill the empty spaces where there were once natural teeth. These permanent structures keep surrounding teeth from shifting and becoming crooked. Bridges and implants also restore your natural bite pattern and can improve your speech.
With cosmetic dentistry, many patients also experience a boost in self-confidence, which can inspire a commitment to self-care and healthy dental habits.
