According to polls, nearly half of all people notice another person’s smile first, before any other facial features. If you were to observe a smile that you would call amazing, you may not even realize exactly what is so perfect about it. You may notice radiant white teeth and leave it at that. You don’t have to break down a smile into tiny details to understand its beauty. Your dentist, might, though. As in revered works of art, an attractive smile is a matter of ideal proportions. Small details that all play into one another to create one cohesive feature.

What Exactly is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the area in which the primary focus of treatment is to bring out the very best in your smile. There are several ways we can do this, each of which has been proven safe and effective. Some treatments change the shade of teeth, some change the very shape of them. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can make over your entire smile just by altering a few details.
What Are My Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options?
We are proud to offer the most common, most efficient cosmetic dentistry treatments in a comfortable, friendly environment. Some of the procedures that you might explore as you seek to bring out the best in your smile include:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Composite or porcelain veneers
How Do I Know Which Procedure is Best for Me?
Consulting with your experienced dentist about cosmetic procedures can be extraordinarily fun! Here, we spend the most time just listening to your needs and concerns. Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and observe the details about each that you might find concerning. For example, if you have discolored teeth, your dentist will look at your enamel and discern where your stains reside and what can be done to brighten your smile. When you visit us, you can expect a comprehensive examination that covers each point of concern that you have brought up. Then, you and your dentist can engage in a meaningful conversation about the various treatments that could be used to address them. Sometimes, there is more than one option for a single concern. For instance, if you have a sightly turned tooth, you might be a candidate for Invisalign or for composite or porcelain veneers. It’s all about your preference for cost and longevity. After your consultation, you will have all of the information that you need to make a confident decision regarding how to best achieve your desired outcome.
Can I Combine More Than One Procedure at a Time?
Depending on the treatments that your dentist recommends, you may be able to combine procedures into one dental appointment. This is a detail of your treatment plan that can be discussed during your consultation. In some cases, treatments may need to be done in a specific order. If you want to straighten your teeth and also whiten them, for instance, your dentist may recommend that you complete your Invisalign treatment before having your teeth whitened.
Does Cosmetic Dentistry Require Recovery Time?
Most cosmetic dentistry procedures are very conservative and do not require downtime to recover. At the most, you may want to spend the rest of your day taking it easy after undergoing a dental treatment. By the following day, however, chances are you’d be ready to return to work without any major discomfort.
