What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dental treatments repair, reshape, straighten, or lighten the teeth. You can have one or multiple procedures to achieve your desired results.

Cosmetic dentistry not only enhances the appearance of your smile but also boosts your oral health.

Types of Cosmetic Dental Procedures

  • Crowns. A dental crown is a cap attached to the tooth to restore its shape and strength. It also protects teeth from further damage when a filling isn't enough to address the issue. A crown can be made from different materials. It's customized to look natural and fit right. Learn more about dental crowns in this post.
  • Bridges. A dental bridge closes the gap left by one or several missing teeth. It's composed of the crown attached to the abutment, which are the teeth on either side of the gap, and the pontic tooth, which is the artificial tooth in the middle that fills in the empty spot. Find out how a dental bridge is made.
  • Invisalign. Invisalign is a tooth straightening method that uses clear plastic aligners. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are removable and are almost invisible when worn. Invisalign can address various issues, such as crowding and misalignment.
  • Implants. Dental implants are a lasting tooth replacement option. They're fixed in place and become a natural part of your smile. The implant replaces the tooth roots, making it a reliable foundation for artificial teeth. Check out the advantages of dental implants and why they're the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.
  • Veneers. Veneers are extra-thin shells attached to the surface of the teeth. They help make your smile uniform, aligned, and more attractive. The process requires removing a small portion of the teeth to make room for the veneers.
  • Teeth whitening. This cosmetic procedure aims to lighten the shade of your teeth. It can be done in-office or at home with custom trays. Not all tooth discoloration is the same, so it's best to start with a smile assessment to ensure you're heading in the right direction.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Safe?

Cosmetic dental treatments are safe, provided you're going to a trained and registered dental professional. Here at Vita Dental Wellness, cosmetic dentistry is provided by Dr. Seidlitz, and Dr. Anand. They have completed extensive training in veneers and other cosmetic dental procedures.

It's important to start the process with a consultation because not all procedures are suitable for everyone. You need to understand how each treatment can affect your smile, the risks and limitations involved, and the work required on your part afterward.

Together with your dentist, you explore several factors to determine the next steps to take. Your treatment plan is customized based on your aesthetic goals, oral health, medical history, lifestyle, and budget.

We're pleased to offer cosmetic dentistry in our office and are always happy to educate you about the options appropriate for your situation.
