Smiling is a powerful thing! Research has shown that it not only improves mood but also boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress. Unfortunately, some people don’t feel confident about their pearly whites, so they are less likely to reap these benefits due to not wanting to show them. However, there’s good news! Cosmetic dentistry can fix a broad range of dental imperfections. Here’s what to know about it and some of its services.

What Exactly is Cosmetic Dentistry?

As a dental specialty, cosmetic dentistry uses treatments and procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth, bite, and gums. It also primarily focuses on changing the color, shape, size, and alignment of your pearly whites, thus affecting the overall aesthetic of your smile. Cosmetic dental procedures can fix a range of issues, including discoloration, misalignment, chips, cracks, gaps, and uneven gums. Although most cosmetic dental services are considered non-essential, some are medically necessary and provide restorative benefits.

4 Common Cosmetic Dentistry Services

There is a wide variety of services offered to achieve your dream smile. Here are three of the most common ones:


If you are dreaming about flawless teeth, veneers are the way to go! Ultra-thin shells of porcelain are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth, concealing dental imperfections from view. Veneers can fix chipped, cracked, gapped, discolored, and misaligned teeth in two dental appointments. Your new smile will also look completely seamless and natural-looking since the porcelain sheaths are custom-matched to the enamel of your surrounding teeth.

At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening

Over time, your smile can become less vibrant. Certain foods and drinks can begin to stain and discolor your teeth. Fortunately, you can brighten your pearly whites with professional teeth whitening! Your dentist will provide you with custom-made trays and special bleaching agents. After wearing the treatment as directed for a few weeks, your smile will be several shades whiter.

Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

You may just want to fix just a small issue with your smile. Cosmetic bonding is the perfect solution for minor chips, cracks, breaks, gaps, and stains. By applying a tooth-colored resin to the flawed tooth and sculpting it to perfection, these issues are quickly masked in as little as one hour!

Metal-Free Restorations

For years, metal was used to repair decayed or damaged teeth. Although these restorations were effective, they were highly noticeable. Now, most dental offices use porcelain to create seamless-looking inlays, onlays, and crowns. These metal-free restorations combine the best qualities of both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. You will have improved oral health and an aesthetically pleasing grin!

Are you ready to reap the benefits of flashing a beautiful smile? With the help of your cosmetic dentist, you’ll be beaming with confidence in no time!
