Unlike traditional dentistry, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic appearance of your overall smile. There are a number of procedures today that may fit into both categories. Cosmetic dentistry’s focus remains on the appearance of your teeth, lips, gums, and overall smile. There are a number of reasons why a person may choose to undergo a cosmetic dentistry procedure. Usually, it is because improving the look of their smile will help them to achieve a greater level of self-confidence as they move through their day.
Austin Cosmetic Dentist Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are routinely performed in most dental offices around the world. Today, these may include procedures such as:
Teeth whitening – when your teeth become discolored, a professional whitening treatment can provide you with immediate results (unlike over-the-counter products).
Dental veneers – when tooth whitening isn’t enough, or if your tooth discoloration occurs with other dental issues, dental veneers can be used to correct these issues as well as improving the overall look of your smile.
Dental bonding – though it is often used to fill cavities and repair cracked or chipped teeth, dental bonding is considered to be a cosmetic procedures because it can also be used to change the shape of your teeth as well.
Dental crowns – when you have a broken tooth or a cavity that is too large to be filled, dental crowns can help to repair the tooth while also improving the look of your smile.
Tooth reshaping – sometimes teeth can become worn in usual ways. Tooth reshaping changes the shape of your natural teeth so that they are more aesthetically pleasing.
