What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry includes any treatment that corrects aesthetic imperfections in your smile. We have so many options available today, that there is virtually no problem we can’t correct.
Teeth whitening is considered to be cosmetic dentistry because it can transform the appearance of your smile. It is a quick and easy procedure that produces dramatic results that greatly enhance the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers are another example of a very effective cosmetic treatment. Veneers look natural and can be used to address a wide variety of dental flaws. These include problems like chipped or broken teeth, teeth with uneven spaces, and even severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to whitening.
Invisalign and Six Month Smiles clear braces are two short-term orthodontic treatments that can quickly and effectively correct misaligned teeth. The bonus is that straightening your teeth also has oral health benefits.
Dental restorations like crowns are most often used to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth. But we can also use crowns to alter the shape of a tooth or cover an old filling, so in this way they can also be considered cosmetic.
As you can see, cosmetic dentistry offers us lots of options for correcting a number of imperfections. Please contact our Woodinville office to learn more about how these treatments can benefit you.
