Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on dental procedures that restore the natural beauty of your teeth and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your smile, simultaneously maintaining dental health and functionality.
Cosmetic dentistry can improve your self-image and have both a positive physical and psychological impact.
What are some of the cosmetic dentistry treatment options?
Dr. Samet and her team provide numerous cosmetic dentistry treatment options, including:
Professional teeth whitening involves the use of bleaching and whitening the teeth with chemicals.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that Dr. Samet places on the front surface of chipped, stained, and discolored teeth.
Invisalign® aligner trays are custom-designed and created for your teeth. Over time, the series of almost invisible trays gently straighten and realign your teeth.
Dental implants are screw-like hardware that acts as artificial tooth roots to securely hold your dental prosthesis in place.
Dr. Samet uses tooth-colored fillings for any new cavities, and to replace any unwanted silver fillings.
Bridges close any gaps between the teeth by attaching a row of crowns, which offers an excellent solution for missing teeth.
Dr. Samet places dental crowns on top of broken or chipped teeth.
If you feel excessive gums are showing when you smile, laser dentistry can adjust the disproportionate amount of visible gums.
Why would I need cosmetic dentistry?
You may need cosmetic dentistry to enhance the outward appearance of your smile. Other reasons Dr. Samet may recommend cosmetic dentistry are:
- Missing teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Misshapen, broken, or chipped teeth
If missing teeth or other complications inhibit chewing or eating, cosmetic dentistry can help.
What’s the difference between a general dentist and a cosmetic dentist?
For a general dentist to become a qualified cosmetic dentist as well, additional training is required. Such training focuses on cosmetic dental procedures that offer ways to improve the appearance of that ever-important facial expression, the smile.
Dr. Samet is board certified and qualified in both general and cosmetic dentistry. She devises custom cosmetic treatment plans for her patients. Call or book your consultation online to discover the many cosmetic dentistry treatments available.
