Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures aimed at enhancing your appearance. That said, some cosmetic dentistry options address damage and other dental concerns as well.

Cosmetic dentistry has vastly improved over the years. And as new advancements have arrived, Dr. Carlile has continued pursuing education and training opportunities to transform smiles and lives.

What are some cosmetic dentistry procedures?

There are many cosmetic dentistry options to choose from. You might pursue just one or combine several to make the most of your smile.

  • Teeth whitening: Dr. Carlile offers professional-strength teeth whitening that can give you a gleaming, bright, yet natural-looking smile. Teeth whitening can eliminate stains from food or smoking and can also improve fading that has occurred over time.
  • Dental bonding: Dental bonding is an application of tooth-colored resin to the surface of a cracked, chipped, discolored, or fractured tooth. Dr. Carlile carefully shapes the resin to create a natural appearance that conforms to the surrounding teeth.
  • Dental veneers: Dental veneers are porcelain covers that are cemented over your natural teeth. Veneers can correct chips, cracks, gaps, or minor alignment issues. A small amount of your tooth enamel is removed before the veneers are placed.

What are the advantages of cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry changes the appearance of your smile, which can have many additional benefits. Your new smile might help you:

  • Look younger
  • Boost your self-esteem
  • Enhance your career opportunities
  • Help you feel more confident about making social connections

Best of all, cosmetic dentistry procedures can help strengthen your teeth and prevent further damage. Viewed with these things in mind, cosmetic procedures are not just an investment in your dental health, they are an investment in your overall well-being.

What about crowns and dental implants?

Crowns and dental implants can also enhance the appearance of your smile. However, because these procedures are most often used to restore the structural integrity of a tooth or replace a missing tooth, they are normally considered restorative, rather than cosmetic procedures.
