Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty area that focuses on the wide range of smile enhancement treatments that positively change your teeth and smile. Most, if not all, of the treatments don’t simply have an aesthetic purpose. Often fixing one thing creates a positive outcome in your overall general and oral health. For instance, when Dr. Densmore uses Invisalign to straighten your teeth, it will also correct your bite, which may have been thrown off by moving or misaligned teeth.

Common cosmetic dentistry treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening to lighten and brighten stained teeth
  • Veneers to correct uneven, misaligned, or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Invisalign to straighten or realign teeth
  • Crowns and bridges to replace or strengthen damaged or missing teeth
  • Bonding to restore chipped, broken, or cracked teeth
  • Dentures and dental implants to permanently replace missing teeth

Are cosmetic procedures only available to adults?

Some cosmetic dentistry treatments are available to children, however, it all depends on how developed their teeth and dental arches are. For instance, if your child had an accident or sports injury and their front teeth were knocked out, bonding or veneers may be a good option.

However, dental implants may not be an option, especially if bone growth has not completed. Dr. Densmore recommends coming in to discuss any dental concerns so that he can properly evaluate the cosmetic dentistry options available for your child.

What is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment?

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, when they asked people what they’d like to improve most about their smile, they overwhelmingly responded that they wanted whiter teeth. Teeth whitening treatment options include a variety of at-home hygiene practices and whitening kits, custom whitening kits that Dr. Densmore creates just for you with the Zoom! Whitening system.

With the wide variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments available, you can get that smile you’ve always wanted and take on the world with renewed confidence and self-esteem.
