Cosmetic Dentistry Overview
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry addresses the appearance of your smile. It’s primarily dental procedures focused on the improvement of dental aesthetics, such as the color, shape, position, size, and alignment of your teeth and/or gums.
What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do for You?
Cosmetic dentistry may offer a solution to any of these concerns you may have:
- Worn and/or chipped teeth (such as from grinding)
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Teeth that are too small or too large
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- and more…
Options for Worn, Chipped, or Small Teeth
If you have worn, chipped, or small teeth, we may be able to redesign them to fit the proportion of a natural smile. To lengthen your teeth, we may recommend porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Options for Gapped and Spaced Teeth
There are several ways to close gaps between teeth. Orthodontics may be a possible option for some people. Also, porcelain veneers may be another option to eliminate spaces between fully developed teeth.
Options for Crooked or Crowded Teeth
At Brushwell Dental, we have a board-certified orthodontist who can treat misaligned teeth with traditional braces or Invisalign. We can develop a computer-generated rendering of your mouth to determine all your options, giving you a visual preview of the final result.
Options for Discolored Teeth
Depending on the cause and severity of discoloration, we may offer different solutions for teeth whitening. For staining that is a result of tetracycline damage or other medications/medical conditions, we may present other long-term treatment options.
