Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is the Difference between Cosmetic and General Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry’s primary function is to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile.  Several of the procedures that improve the appearance of a patient’s smile can also correct oral issues like bite or gaps between teeth. Cosmetic treatments correct:  

  • Missing teeth
  • Over or under bites
  • Discoloration of teeth
  • Unattractive gaps between teeth
  • Old, unattractive dental treatments
  • The size shape and alignment of teeth
  • Broken, decayed, cracked or chipped teeth

What Should I Look for in a Cosmetic Dentist?

When looking for a cosmetic dentist, you should research his or her work in advance. When you meet with the dentist for a consultation, ask for references, and before and after photos of the work to show you the results of his work on other patients. This will allow you to see if the work meets your expectations. Your cosmetic dentist should be willing to answer all of your questions and explain the procedures so that you can understand what will be done to achieve the look you desire. You could also ask about the dentist’s continuing education. While all dentists participate in extensive education before begin to practice, dental techniques and technologies are constantly updated and improved. Check to make sure that your dentist is up to date with current best practices.

How Will I Know What Treatment is Best for Me?

The dentist will be able to give you a recommendation for the best treatment to achieve your dental goals as well as describe the benefits and risks of the procedure. Your dentist will have a detailed conversation with you about what you want to change and how you would like your smile to appear. The condition and health of your teeth will contribute to the decision about the best procedure to meet your needs. Some key questions to discuss with your dentist should include:

  • What will my teeth look like after the treatment?
  • What will my procedure involve?
  • How many visits will be needed?
  • What kind of maintenance will be needed?
