Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the appearance of your teeth. It’s different from preventive dentistry, which focuses on taking care of your teeth to keep them healthy, or restorative dentistry, which fixes and replaces damaged or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is about boosting your confidence and self-image by helping you achieve the perfect smile.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are usually elective, but they can still make your teeth healthier and stronger. Dr. Kennealy and her team also perform restorations, including crowns and fillings, that both look and feel great. It’s important to the team at Graceful Smiles Dentistry that your treatment plan helps you achieve both your aesthetic and oral health goals.

How can cosmetic dentistry help me?

Cosmetic dentistry has the power to transform your smile, whether you have a minor concern or need complex, significant work done. There are procedures to correct many of the problems you may have with the appearance of your teeth. Dr. Kennealy may suggest cosmetic dentistry for teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Crowded or uneven
  • Decayed
  • Gapped or crooked 
  • Chipped or broken 
  • Missing

Depending on the procedure, cosmetic dentistry treatments may involve repairing or replacing the teeth involved. If you’re concerned about the appearance of your teeth, don’t hesitate to ask. There’s sure to be a path to the smile you deserve.

Which cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

The team at Graceful Smiles Dentistry offers a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Whether you need a full smile makeover or want your teeth to look brighter, there’s an option that can fit your needs. 

Your dentist can customize and combine procedures to fit your needs. Your treatment may include both elective cosmetic procedures and restorative work performed with an eye for aesthetics. Some popular cosmetic options include:

Teeth Whitening

If your teeth are stained or discolored, whitening can make them several shades brighter. Whether you choose an in-office procedure or an at-home kit with a professional-grade whitening solution, your dentist can provide much better results than commercial whitening products.

Veneers

Veneers are customized pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that your dentist bonds to your teeth, covering up chips, gaps, and stains that don’t respond to whitening. Veneers look like healthy, natural enamel and are resistant to stains. 

Bonding 

Bonding is an alternative to veneers that’s quicker, more affordable, and reversible. The results, however, are less dramatic and don’t last quite as long. This procedure involves applying a bonding material, called composite resin, to the surface of your teeth to fill in imperfections.
