Cosmetic Dentistry Explained

From subtle changes to major repairs, a cosmetic dentist can offer men and women a large variety of dental techniques to achieve a beautiful smile. So, what is the difference between a cosmetic and general dentist? General dentists focus primarily on maintaining oral health with regular dental cleanings, cavity prevention, and restorative care like bridges and crowns. A cosmetic dentist aesthetically remedies specific aspects of a patient's teeth they wish to make “prettier” or keep as pretty as it was. Make no mistake about it -- a cosmetic dentist has an incredible amount of training in all dental procedures. They serve as a fantastic resource for providing their patients with dental options to make their smile more beautiful and healthy.

Smile makeover explained

The phrase, "A smile says a thousand words," definitely rings true. Your smile can instantly light up a room and form a connection with others without you even saying a word. However, when a person is unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, masking their smile becomes second nature. Do not fear! A smile makeover can do wonders for men and women who are unhappy with any aspect of their smile.

A smile makeover consists of two or more cosmetic dental procedures performed to form a patient’s new smile. Some conventional treatments include dental contouring or bonding to fix broken or misshapen teeth. Teeth straightening with Invisalign® and laser teeth whitening treatments give patients a fresh, new look to their smile. Some patients choose to remove old metal fillings and replace them with new innovative tooth-colored fillings. Patients looking to change their smile may also consider porcelain or composite veneers.

What should I look for in a cosmetic dentist?

There are many different steps to ensure you find the right cosmetic dentist for your needs. The main goal of a cosmetic dentist is to provide treatment options with the latest dental techniques to give patients natural-looking results. Along with the right qualifications, extensive training, and patient recommendations, the cosmetic dentist you choose should be an expert in their field and offer the most up-to-date dental procedures. The cosmetic dentists at Dallas Laser Dentistry in Dallas, TX, provide the latest options to help you achieve that winning smile.
