Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dentistry which focuses on the overall aesthetic appeal of your smile. This mainly relates to your teeth – their alignment, color, shape, and size. However sometimes the appearance of your gums around your teeth is also involved. Missing teeth, especially in the anterior part of someone’s mouth, are often a cause of embarrassment. Cosmetic treatments may serve to improve more than just the appearance of your smile, they also improve the health and function of your teeth. We provide many affordable cosmetic services to help you gain more self-confidence through a better smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty practice recognized by the American Dental Association(ADA) or any state dental licensing board. All general dentists are trained to do cosmetic dentistry, and they should be able to improve your smile with many different procedures. All general dentists do cosmetic dentistry. As with all other areas of dentistry, the level of cosmetic dentistry any dentist engages in depends on his training, experience, and comfort in performing those procedures.

The malalignment of the front top teeth (maxillary anterior) is often a cosmetic issue that causes an individual not to smile much. Although this problem could best be solved with orthodontics, many people do not want to spend that much time (often 2 years) or discomfort in braces. Sometimes this aesthetic problem can be solved by the selective use of porcelain crowns and veneers – the placement of a combination of these restorations can give the appearance of having moved the teeth into a better aligned position. This often results in a new smile that the patient has confidence in.
