Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures and treatments that focus on improving the aesthetic appearance of the teeth, gums, and smile. While general dentistry focuses on maintaining oral health and treating dental issues, cosmetic dentistry primarily aims to enhance the overall appearance of the teeth and smile. At Valenta Dental, we offer various elective cosmetic procedures that can improve the teeth's color, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance.
There are many benefits of visiting a dentist who offers cosmetic dentistry services. In addition to improving your dental health, these treatments can enhance your appearance and confidence.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Improved Confidence in Your Smile
Many patients undergoing a smile makeover do so because they want to regain their confidence. Whether your teeth have been damaged by decay or trauma, having missing teeth can make you feel embarrassed about showing your smile to others. You can feel confident about showing off your pearly whites with cosmetic dental treatments!
Better Oral Health
While you may feel confident in the appearance of your smile, you may be concerned about your oral health. This is why visiting a dentist who can address both aspects of your smile is essential. For example, if you have teeth that are damaged and discolored, your dentist can help you by repairing the teeth while also restoring their natural beauty with tooth whitening.
A More Attractive Smile
Finally, while all of the benefits of cosmetic dental procedures are important, many patients find it to be one of the most rewarding aspects of the process. Not only can they feel better about how they look, but they also receive compliments from friends, family, and colleagues about how great their smile looks. After receiving a smile makeover, you’ll never want to stop smiling!
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
This procedure removes stains and discoloration from the teeth, resulting in a brighter and whiter smile. Teeth whitening can be performed in-office by a dentist or through take-home kits provided by the dentist.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain or composite resin bonded to the teeth's front surface. They can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, misaligned, or have gaps. Veneers provide a natural-looking, durable, and stain-resistant solution.
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to repair minor cosmetic flaws such as chips, cracks, or gaps. The resin is shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth, improving appearance.
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping or gum sculpting, involves removing or reshaping excess gum tissue to create a more balanced and proportionate gum line. It can improve the appearance of a "gummy" smile or correct uneven gum levels, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the smile.
