Cosmetic dentistry something beyond general dentistry

Although general dentists may offer a few cosmetic dentistry services such as bleaching, to practice as a cosmetic dentist, you need to pass specialized training courses. General dentists first need to learn all about how to make better and more beautiful teeth, mouth, and other related components before they can start their practice as a cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry services

The following is a list of services offered by cosmetic dental clinics.

Dental restoration with tooth-colored or composite materials

One of the best cosmetic dentistry services for preserving the appearance of chipped or fractured teeth is dental restoration using tooth-colored or composite materials. Tooth bonding is a process in which your dentist fills some of your teeth with a tooth-colored composite resin to fix damages. This substance will conceal these dental malformations completely and even treat mild tooth decay.


Tooth whitening, also known as tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic treatment that involves lightening the color of human teeth and enhancing the appearance of discolored or yellow teeth, which may be congenital or acquired. Bleaching alone would not whiten the teeth if the discoloration is not caused by dental tartar. Such clients need to visit an orthodontist to get the problem investigated further. The orthodontist diagnoses the malocclusions and then suggests the best solution to correct them and improve the client’s appearance. Using a special solvent called hydrogen peroxide, tooth bleaching decomposes the deposited and hardened dental pigments. The durability and success of bleaching largely depend on how the client observes post-treatment care and oral hygiene. Tooth bleaching is now one of the most popular dental procedures among people from different walks of life.

Dental veneering

Dental veneering is a procedure performed for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. Some dental procedures necessitate the use of dental veneers to improve the appearance of the treated tooth and match the color of the surrounding teeth. In cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers, especially dental laminates, may play a unique role in enhancing the beauty of your smile and teeth.

Dental implant

A dental implant is a surgical component similar to the tooth root that interfaces with the jawbone to support a dental prosthesis. Dental implant surgery is a high-success procedure that blends the form and appearance of the teeth perfectly.

Cosmetic orthodontics

Orthodontics is another cosmetic dentistry treatment that not only straightens and arranges teeth but also enhances the beauty of the smile. The orthodontist can use fixed or removable orthodontic appliances to gradually force the teeth and jaws into their normal position, depending on the client’s conditions and the position of the teeth. Cosmetic orthodontics is one of the most effective and safest treatments for improving the appearance of the mouth, teeth, and jaws while avoiding complications.

Through fixing crowded teeth, bridging gaps between teeth, and replacing missing teeth, orthodontists can help ensure oral health and improve the appearance of their patients. Orthodontists use cutting-edge orthodontic techniques and tools to fix malocclusions and standardize the shape of your mouth, teeth, and jaws, ensuring your oral health and appearance.

Effects of cosmetic dentistry on everyday life

It is a dream for most people to have a beautiful and Hollywood smile. Cosmetic dentistry enhances the quality of people’s faces and smiles so that they can confidently engage in social situations. In reality, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics may have a significant impact on a person’s personal and social future.
