What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
It might not seem too surprising, but cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular in the United States. Everyone is looking to both look and feel their best, and a beautiful smile is a major part of this. In fact, a smile is one of the first features most people notice. So why wouldn’t you want it to be perfect? This is where cosmetic dentistry comes in.
Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile rather than the health and function of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry gives patients the smiles they’ve been looking for, from whitening to recontouring to replacing missing teeth. When you are looking to change the look of your smile, rather minor or drastic, then cosmetic dentistry is the answer.
From more conservative treatments to more aggressive procedures, cosmetic dentistry can offer anyone a more attractive smile. Advancements in dental technology have also created more natural, tooth-like options and materials then ever before, so no one will ever be able to tell that you have received restorative dental work.
Here are some of the aesthetic services we offer:
- Dental bonding and reshaping
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- Dental implants
- Dental filling
- Smile makeovers
If you are looking for a smile makeover the first step will require a consultation and evaluation in which we examine your smile, discuss your treatment goals and determine which cosmetic treatments will work best to align with what you are looking for. While we are discussing cosmetic needs it’s fairly common to find dental issues that also need to be treated before we can perform any cosmetic procedures. After all, your smile has to be fully functional and healthy so it doesn’t negatively affect your cosmetic dental work in the future.
If you are unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry can change all that. Cosmetic dentistry offers wonderful restorative benefits for many patients looking to revive their dull, unattractive or damaged smiles. Let us help you get the smile you’ve been dreaming of. Your new smile is only a consultation away.
Countless dental surveys have found that Americans place a very high value on the appearance of their teeth. A nice smile tops the list of the most important features to have along with clear skin, bright eyes and beautiful hair. Thanks to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, you can get a perfect smile in just a few appointments at our Kennesaw, Marietta, and Woodstock, GA offices.
Any treatment that is performed to improve the look of your teeth falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. Dental professionals have been administering cosmetic procedures for decades, and in ancient times people used shells, stones and animal bones to create makeshift dental restorations. Today, cosmetic dentistry is a $2.75 billion industry.
Top Cosmetic Treatments
Though patients most often go to the dentist’s office because there’s an urgent problem, some go specifically for a cosmetic solution. Here are some of the top cosmetic treatments used in dental offices across the country:
- Braces (metal and Invisalign)
- Crowns and veneers
- Porcelain inlays, onlays and tooth colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding and contouring
- Implant Dentistry
- Professional whitening
Therapy for a “gummy smile,” which is a disproportionate amount of gum tissue and too-small teeth.
You can request these treatments and more at the La Jolla cosmetic dentistry of Dr. Edmund W. Jay.
Getting Your Perfect Smile
In some cases, your dentist will recommend a combination of cosmetic treatments to help you get your perfect smile. For example, your treatment plan may include Invisalign clear aligners to reposition your teeth and professional whitening to make them look brighter. In some cases your dentist might need to use both veneers and crowns to recreate your smile.
