Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Brookshire Dental P.A.

What is Considered Cosmetic Dentistry?

Any type of procedure designed to improve the aesthetic appeal of a person’s smile falls under the cosmetic dentistry category. Services can include:

  • Whitening
  • Veneer or crown application
  • Treating crowding or alignment issues
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Full mouth reconstructions

 

These options can help people improve the look and feel of their smiles which in turn can help them to feel more confident. These treatments can also be used to address functional issues, as well as helping to protect the gums and teeth.

What Will the Procedures Do?

Depending on what treatment is being performed the goal may be different. The following list

provides a basic breakdown of each treatment:

  • Crowns- used to cover metal fillings, stained teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.
  • Whitening- performed to remove surface stains or internal bleaching which addresses stains inside the tooth.
  • Veneers- used to help teeth appear straighter and more uniform in addition to covering chips, cracks, deep discoloration, and gaps.
  • Orthodontics- used to move teeth into their proper position and correct alignment issues gradually over time through metal wires, plastic aligners, or a combination of both.

The exact treatment used will vary from person to person. The dentist will walk through all procedures with each patient to ensure they have a full understanding of what is going to happen.

What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction, or makeover, is designed to address multiple issues at the same time. This makeover is achieved through a treatment plan which involves utilizing many different procedures to dramatically change how a person’s teeth and mouth look. The treatment plan will be crafted by the dentist and can help improve the look of the mouth and teeth, and correct functional issues as well. This is typically an avenue for patients who require multiple forms of treatment such as veneers, crowns, decay removal, and whitening.
