What Is Cosmetic Dentistry and How Can It Help You

Cosmetic dentistry offers you fantastic opportunities for transforming your smile and boosting your self-esteem by enhancing its beauty. Nowadays, you can receive a variety of treatments that will help you get picture-perfect teeth. You just need to be sure that the procedures you choose are indeed the best for your particular situation and budget.
The most popular cosmetic dental procedures include but aren’t limited to:

Teeth Bonding

This cosmetic dental treatment will work for people who have large spaces between the teeth. This condition can be natural or caused by some form of physical trauma. Bonding may also help in situations when teeth are cracked or chipped.
The best thing about this procedure is that it’s very simple and usually requires a single visit to complete. The dentist will apply a specialized tooth-colored material to the surfaces of your teeth to ‘fill the gaps’.
Please bear in mind that bonding materials can stain differently from the teeth, they are also susceptible to cracks and chipping. You’ll have to undergo the treatment again in a few years in order to restore your beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening

Drinking coffee, tea, and colored sodas, smoking, and a variety of other reasons can stain your teeth deeply. Whitening will remove these marks, giving you an attractive pearly-white smile.
In essence, this treatment uses specialized bleaches to remove the stains, which is why it usually increases teeth sensitivity for a few days. To achieve the best results, your dentist should provide you with a custom mouthpiece that will fit you perfectly and reduce the risk of gum irritation. The procedure usually requires 1-2 visits.


These are custom-made moldings that cover your tooth to make it appear perfect. They can be used to cover decayed teeth and the types of stains that cannot be removed through whitening. Depending on the type of veneers you choose, they can last between 5 and 15 years.
