What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is defined as any one or more dental treatments that improve the beauty of your smile and/or improve your overall dental health. Cosmetic dentistry helps you to achieve a more attractive and beautiful smile, improving your self-esteem and sometimes leading to a more successful lifestyle.

Cosmetic dentistry can include a wide number of techniques, from re-contouring the teeth or gums to bleaching/whitening the teeth to aligning the teeth through orthodontics to placing porcelain veneers on a number of teeth.

Although many general dentists claim to practice some aspect of cosmetic dentistry, it takes an experienced and well-trained dentist to successfully master the techniques, skills, materials, and high-tech equipment in order to achieve the most beautiful result. Cosmetic dentistry techniques are not taught in general dentistry schools and many general dentists do not keep up-to-date on the current research and cutting-edge procedures.
