Cosmetic Dentistry is the process of improving the aesthetic quality of a person’s smile.
A purely cosmetic procedure is one that is performed without a medical reason, solely to improve a patient’s appearance. Through cosmetic dentistry, we are able to redesign the functional aspects of the teeth so that they have a unified, uniform, natural look. We achieve this by using special non-metal materials, such as porcelain or composites, which allow for a more natural looking smile.
There is a cosmetic component or aspect to most general dental procedures, because the choice of filling materials can affect aesthetic appearance. Many of the simple non-cosmetic procedures that you may have had during your life can be cohesively redesigned to give you the look that you want.
