Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental treatment that improves the appearance of one’s smile. This typically refers to treatments that will enhance the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. Some examples of common cosmetic dental treatments include teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, gum reshaping, and more. At Richard D. Sellen, DDS, these procedures are a great way to correct minor aesthetic flaws or boost self-confidence. They also can help to rejuvenate your appearance, helping you look younger and vibrant again.  

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?  

Stained Teeth  

Dental bonding and teeth whitening are the most common procedures to help patients address their discolored teeth, but porcelain veneers are also an option. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. Porcelain is naturally white, reflecting light similarly to your natural tooth enamel for a natural-looking effect.  

Discolored Teeth  

Professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile and give you a more youthful look if you have discolored or stained teeth. Teeth whitening is an excellent option for patients who have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the color of their teeth.  

Chipped Teeth  

If you have small chips on your teeth, you no longer have to live with them! We can repair chips and cracks in just a few visits thanks to modern cosmetic procedures such as cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers. The tooth-colored resin bonded to your tooth is shaped to look like your natural enamel, and it will blend right in with the rest of your smile. Tooth bonding doesn’t last as long as other forms of restoration, but it is usually less expensive. It’s an excellent option for minor repairs or if you’re looking to touch up your smile.  

The Advantages of Cosmetic Dentistry  

Improved Confidence   

Patients who struggle with imperfections in their teeth can feel embarrassed and self-conscious about their appearance. By undergoing cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of their smile, patients can regain their confidence and even look younger.   

Easier Eating   

Teeth that are crooked, stained, or gapped can make chewing food difficult and even painful in some cases. When teeth are corrected through cosmetic dentistry procedures, it is much easier for patients to bite and chew their food comfortably.   

Better Oral Health  

Many cosmetic dental procedures are performed to protect the health of a tooth. For example, fillings are used to repair existing decay and prevent further damage from occurring. As a result, patients who undergo cosmetic care can also enjoy improved oral health.   

Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve the appearance of teeth and enhance a smile. To learn more about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, visit Richard D.
