What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The term “cosmetic dentistry” refers to the area of oral healthcare that focuses primarily on aesthetics. While other categories of dentistry, such as preventive and restorative, aim to maintain and/or improve the function of the bite, cosmetic treatments are generally performed to improve the appearance of the teeth (though, of course, oral health is always prioritized). Depending on your unique needs and goals, cosmetic dentistry procedures can serve to straighten, brighten, or otherwise enhance your smile, combating common issues like misalignment, discoloration, cracks, and gaps.

How Do I Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?

Because cosmetic dentistry is such a complex type of oral healthcare, it is important to entrust these services only to a skilled and qualified provider. A cosmetic dentist should not only have extensive experience in aesthetic procedures and a track record of beautiful results, but they should also have a background rich in general and restorative care; this knowledge provides an essential foundation for successful aesthetic dentistry.

When choosing a cosmetic dentist, it can be helpful to research a provider’s background, education, and reviews. This can help you obtain a possible preview of what your experience at their office might look like. In addition, never hesitate to ask a dentist or office any questions you may have regarding your care – and never settle for less than direct, honest communication!

Our talented cosmetic dentists have devoted their careers to our patients’ satisfaction and comfort. Both Dr. Alder and Dr. Barton are known for their compassion, friendliness, and exceptional chairside manner. In addition to their degrees and several years spent training to become dental professionals, they both regularly participate in continuing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in the industry. Along with the rest of our team, they do their best every day to provide the best cosmetic dentistry experience possible for each patient.

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is attached to your tooth to correct chips, stains and gaps. Veneers are custom designed to give you the shape, size, and color of smile you’ve always wanted. In many ways, porcelain acts like regular teeth; as such, veneers can blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
