What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Posted .

If you’re looking for a smile makeover, you might want to try cosmetic dentistry. What’s that?

Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental procedure that changes the aesthetic look of your teeth.
Many procedures fit this description, and there are no hard boundaries as some procedures fit under multiple categories of dentistry. However, here are some broad subcategories to go by:

Orthodontics: An aligned bite is actually a big deal when it comes to oral hygiene and long lasting healthy teeth, but patients often seek orthodontics for aesthetic reasons.

Restoration: If your teeth are chipped or cracked, veneers or crowns can restore them back to pristine shape. If your teeth are discolored or exposed, dental bonding uses materials like resin or plastic which are chemically bonded to your teeth to alter their appearance. At E. Morgan Scheiber & Associates in Plymouth, Massachusetts we can even return your teeth to its former sparkling glory with chairside bleaching.

Tooth Replacement: Did you know that even dental implants, bridges and dentures can be considered a form of cosmetic dentistry? These bring back the beauty of your smile and fill out your face so you look younger.
