If you’ve had dental work done that you’re not happy with, a cosmetic dentist can help fix your smile so you never have to worry about smiling again.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

There is a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, and one or more of these is sure to be the answer for whatever is bothering you about your mouth. Some common procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening for stained teeth
  • Veneers for surface damage or severe discoloration
  • Dental bonding to correct chips and misshapen teeth
  • Invisalign to straighten teeth
  • Cosmetic gum grafts to correct the aesthetic balance between teeth and gums
  • Dental implants to replace missing teeth

Other options might include having dark, metal fillings replaced with white, tooth-colored fillings, or having metal crowns replaced with tooth-colored or porcelain crowns.

Deciding on Cosmetic Dentistry

To decide which cosmetic dentistry procedures are right for you, your first step should be consulting with a cosmetic dentist. You should look for a dentist who regularly performs the procedures you’re interested in. Look at their website to see if they have before and after pictures of work they’ve done in the past. This will give you a good idea of what your own teeth might look like after you’ve had your own work done.

Together with your cosmetic dentist, you’ll discuss what you don’t like about your smile and decide on the best strategy to fix it. This could involve one cosmetic procedure or several. During your consultation, be sure to ask any questions you might have about the procedure and how it works, and what your teeth are likely to look like after your work is completed.
