What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a term for any procedure that alters, reorients or replaces teeth to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
What services fall under the branch of Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you’re searching through websites looking for a dentist, you may have noticed that many services can qualify as Cosmetic Dentistry. Though some services can fall under other branches, here is what services qualify under a cosmetic dental lens:
• Orthodontics: Braces and other orthodontic devices alter and reorient the placement of your teeth and jaw over time. Though straight teeth and a proper bite are major factors toward long-term dental health, they also create a very pleasing aesthetic effect. Dr. Desiree T. Palmer, DMD is trained to fit you or your child with Invisalign, a special type of clear braces.
• Restoration: If your teeth are discolored, decayed or chipped, veneers or crowns can restore your smile. Most modern dentists use porcelain veneers and crowns to match the look of your natural teeth. Dental bonding is another option. Here composite materials are chemically bonded to your teeth. It’s a quick, noninvasive procedure that improves the look of your smile. Our practice can restore your smile with veneers or dental bonding, and even give it an extra sparkle with chairside teeth bleaching
• Tooth Replacement: Dental implants, bridges and even dentures fit into this category. They replace any of your lost teeth, which in turn improves the overall appeal of your smile.
