What Makes Dentistry Cosmetic? You Might Already Know

If you think about the work you’ve had done in the dental chair, you’ll soon realize that a good portion of modern dental work is cosmetic by definition. That means our procedures are designed keep everything in your mouth healthy, but also to make sure your teeth look as attractive as possible, even if they’ve had a lot of dental work. Here are some common dental procedures that put the “cosmetic” in cosmetic dentistry.


Dental implants

A dental implant replaces a tooth root with a titanium screw, and along with a crown placed on top, takes the place of a missing tooth (or teeth). Dental implants help support bone and adjacent teeth, and are considered a permanent solution for missing teeth.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are ultra thin pieces of specialized porcelain that are used to create the look of natural teeth. They are attached to your own tooth’s surface to improve its appearance and add strength and resilience, both often superior to natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can change the size, shape and color of teeth to improve our teeth and our smiles.

Composite fillings

One of the reasons our teeth can look better than ever these days is that we rarely (if ever) use any metals as filling material to replace tooth structure lost to decay. Instead, cosmetic dentists use state-of-the-art composite resin and porcelain. Today’s materials are sturdy and long lasting, and they help our teeth look, feel, and function as well as our natural teeth. In fact, composite fillings are so natural in appearance that most people can’t even tell that the tooth has a filling – even the patient.
