What is a Cosmetic Dentist? A Cosmetic Dentist focuses on improving the dental and facial aesthetic form and function for patients either needing or desiring oral and facial restoration that enhances their looks and smile.
How does a Cosmetic Dentist differ from a General Dentist? Dentists with general dentistry qualifications can practice Cosmetic Dentistry. Usually, cosmetic dentists have completed additional training and experience in dental and facial restoration, and may be a dental expert, such as an orthodontist. More dentists are recognizing the importance of aesthetics in dentistry for overall patient care and may include Cosmetic Dentistry as part of their practice.
What different types of Cosmetic Dentistry treatments are there?
There are a number of different types of Cosmetic Dental treatments depending on individual diagnosis or what is desired by patients. These include gum contouring or reshaping to give people with excess gum tissue or a “gummy smile” a natural smile appearance that reveals their white sparkling teeth. People with stained teeth or inherited discolored teeth may opt for laser teeth whitening to whiten their teeth. When teeth are chipped or need reshaping, porcelain veneers are an option, including crowns that reinforce the natural teeth. Lumineers are a new type of veneer that also give patients brightly formed natural-looking teeth that are durable. When teeth overcrowd the mouth or are skew with gaps, Invisalign braces can correct the teeth structure and bite for better facial appearance. Some athletes or people in general incur facial injuries that result in lost teeth or damage to their jaws. Cosmetic surgeons can replace lost or extracted teeth with dental implants or work with other trained medical professionals on facial reconstruction.
Who needs a Cosmetic Dentist?

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry treatment? Cosmetic Dentistry treatment allows for both examination and treatment of your dental and oral health, and helps you to make an informed choice about what aesthetic treatment will best improve your overall look. These treatments and knowledge helps to improve your general physical and mental health because you learn to look after yourself better and can face the world with a confident smile knowing that you look good. For some people, this translates to greater choices, such as with life partner and job prospects where first impressions really count.
What materials are used in Cosmetic Dentistry?
The types of materials used in Cosmetic Dentistry are similar to what is used in general dentistry, such as porcelain for crowns and veneers. The difference is that certain cosmetic treatments may use more durable and comfortable materials. All these options can be explained to you during a professional consultation with our cosmetic dentist, who can also inform you of bio-compatible dental substances and processes.
