Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the look of your teeth and your smile. General dentistry prioritizes mouth health with standard oral cleanings and fillings. Cosmetic dentists make your teeth look better, straighter, and whiter while still addressing your oral health.

Cosmetic dental procedures are typically elective, as they aren’t always necessary for proper oral health. Sometimes cosmetic dentistry can be used to enhance procedures, like using composite fillings, to give your smile a more natural appearance. Popular cosmetic procedures include veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants, bonding, and even full mouth rehabilitation.

What can cosmetic dentistry fix?

Your teeth might look less than perfect due to damage, stains, or irregularities. Cosmetic dentistry addresses these imperfections to give you a beautiful smile. Cosmetic dentistry might be right for you if you suffer from:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Missing teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Irregularly-shaped or small teeth

Veneers and dental bonding are popular options for correcting chips and cracks. Veneers can also correct the look of gummy, short teeth or irregularly-shaped teeth. Implants and crowns can fill out a smile that’s affected by missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive option for patients who want to freshen their look with whiter teeth.

For some patients, full mouth rehabilitation gives them the chance to repair a seriously damaged smile. Replacing all of your teeth with full mouth rehabilitation combines cosmetic and restorative dentistry to improve your oral health while enhancing your appearance.

How does teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening can significantly brighten your smile. Dr. Nwizu helps you choose your desired level of whiteness to give your teeth a natural look. She prepares your teeth by removing plaque and protects your gums and cheeks with gauze.

A whitening solution is then applied over the surface of your teeth. Most whitening procedures involve a curing light, and you sit under the light from anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. You’ll leave the office with an instantly brighter smile. It’s important to avoid dark, staining foods and drinks for at least 24 hours following your whitening treatment to maintain your results.
