The term cosmetic dentistry is one that is widely used but not always understood.
While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth and smile. Generally, cosmetic dentistry provides treatments that are elective; but in some cases, its benefits are also restorative.
If you have stained, broken or uneven teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. Cosmetic dentistry is different from orthodontic treatment, which can straighten your teeth with braces or other devices.
Typical cosmetic dental procedures include:
- Bleaching to make teeth whiter
- Repairing chips or rough spots with fillings that match your teeth
- Filling cavities with tooth-colored materials
- Reshaping teeth that don’t match the others
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Covering broken teeth with porcelain crowns
Angell’s Dentistry offers a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including: white fillings, porcelain crowns, veneers and tooth whitening. With white fillings, for example, we can replace your older silver fillings with fillings made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the color of your teeth.
We welcome your questions about our cosmetic procedures and can help you determine which services are right for your teeth and smile.
