Could Cosmetic Dentistry Help You?

Cosmetic dentistry is incredibly powerful, capable of taking a set of less-than-stellar teeth and transforming them into the smile of your dreams. Many people see what cosmetic dentistry is capable of and think that it’s just for celebrities, or for people who have serious issues with their teeth.

In reality, there are all kinds of people who can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Here are some common cosmetic dental treatments, and what kinds of issues they can address.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most common issues people tend to face is a smile that’s a little yellower than they’d like. Thankfully, professional teeth whitening can erase stains quickly, leaving patients with a perfectly white smile that they’re proud to show off!

Within just one appointment, your dentist can make use of a bleaching solution to give you a smile up to eight shades whiter! If you have a coffee habit, or if you’ve had a few too many glasses of red wine, you might ask your doctor if teeth whitening is an option for you.


Maybe it isn’t just the color of your teeth that’s a problem; it could be that your teeth are misaligned, or filled with chips and cracks. In that case, veneers can completely cover all the issues you may have with your smile.

Your dentist can remove a microscopic portion of your enamel and replace it with a thin shell of porcelain, covering any imperfections you may be unhappy with. You can get a veneer on just a single tooth, or on your whole smile for a complete transformation!


There are plenty of adults who are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth, but think that their time to get braces has passed. For them, Invisalign can be a great way to fix the alignment of their smile.

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible on your teeth, so much so that most people won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing them until you mention it. They’re also removable, meaning that you don’t have to deal with the dietary restrictions that are often associated with braces.

As you can see, cosmetic dentistry has something for everyone. If you’re interested in improving your smile in any way, you won’t lose anything by scheduling a consultation.
