What Falls Under the Category of Cosmetic Dentistry

Have you been trying to figure out if you need to talk to your dentist or another for cosmetic procedures? This can be a different type of problem because it can be difficult to figure out which falls under traditional dentistry and which falls under cosmetic procedures.

Some dentists perform both tasks, which ends up making the procedures even more confusing. Here are some of the most common cosmetic procedures that many cosmetic dentists perform.

Common Cosmetic Dental Procedures

One of the most common cosmetic dental procedures is whitening the teeth. This bleaches the enamel on the teeth to help it look brighter, whiter, and healthier.

Another procedure commonly done by cosmetic dentists is applying dental veneers. This involves placing thin sheets of porcelain over existing teeth to improve how they look.

Another cosmetic dental procedure is dental bonding. This is taking the same material used to make cosmetic fillings and placing it on the teeth. The bonding material is then smoothed and shined, making it appear as part of your natural tooth to cover an imperfection.

Dental implants can be both restorative and cosmetic in nature. They can make your mouth look better when placed where people can see your teeth, than having a gap would look. Plus, it also helps restore functionality to your mouth where a tooth went missing.

Typically, cosmetic procedures are ones that simply make your mouth look better. However, they can also be procedures that help your mouth function better at the same time.

If you want to find out about a specific procedure, ask your dentist when you next see them. Then, you can find out which procedures your dentist can perform, and which you may have to visit a specific cosmetic dentist to have done.
