Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What Treatments Fall Under Cosmetic Dentistry?

Several treatments used to improve the aesthetic appeal of the teeth, gums, and smile are considered a part of cosmetic dentistry. Treatments including teeth whitening, correcting crowding or gaps, and using veneers or crowns to cover or cap teeth, are cosmetic in nature because they improve the look of teeth. Cosmetic dentistry assists patients with achieving a smile they deserve in order to make them feel a bit more confident and improve their self-esteem. These treatments can also strengthen an individual’s teeth and gums and address a few functional concerns.

What Procedures Are Performed Under Cosmetic Dentistry?

Procedures most commonly requested which fall under the purview of cosmetic dentistry typically include:

  • Teeth Whitening- to eliminate stains and discoloration
  • Crowns: To cover internal staining, metal fillings, and chipped or broken teeth
  • Veneers: To cover deep, internal staining as well as correcting gaps, hiding chips or breaks, and assisting teeth to appear more uniform and straight
  • Orthodontics: To straighten teeth, close gaps, correct overcrowding, and correct alignment problems (typically braces or aligners)

Treatment for these issues will differ from patient to patient and the dentist will assist them with deciding which procedure will be the best fit for his or her individual needs.

What is Full Mouth Rehabilitation?

A full mouth rehabilitation program is a cosmetic treatment plan, created to address several smile, gum, and teeth problems within a short time frame. These treatment programs are laid out by the dentist and particularly aimed at correcting the cosmetic and also functional issues present in a patient’s mouth. This form of program is best for individuals which have a number of concerns which they want to be addressed simultaneously or in quick succession. Such issues may include teeth crowding, staining, chipped teeth, and gaps. A common combination of treatments including whitening, veneers or crowns, and in some instances orthodontics will be used to assist patients with obtaining a totally different smile.
