What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The popularity of cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly in recent years. Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly in popularity in recent years. Dentists use cosmetic procedures to address discolored teeth; the size, length or shape of the teeth; the ratio of the visible teeth to the gums; and minor misalignment problems. Patients can choose to combine cosmetic treatments to enjoy having the smile they have always wanted. Two of the most popular cosmetic procedures include professional teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Both of these treatments can erase stains and brighten your smile, and veneers can also correct other minor imperfections including chips or spacing problems.

Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry

There has been a significant trend in recent years toward more natural-looking tooth-colored materials, moving away from all-metal and metal-based options. Tooth-colored materials include porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, and composite resin and can be custom-crafted to match each patient’s natural or desired shade of teeth. These materials are stronger and longer lasting than the metal alternatives, and involve less damage to the natural teeth. The trend toward less invasive treatments and procedures is in part due to these newer materials, and also due to major technological advancements. Today’s patients are more likely to research dental procedures on the Internet prior to speaking with their dentist. These patients are more educated and better informed about the procedures they are interested in, which can them have more in-depth discussions with their dentists and increase treatment satisfaction.

Advancements in Dental Technology

Technological advancements have played a large role in cosmetic dentistry. Lasers and other dental instruments allow for less invasive cosmetic procedures, and actually promote faster healing. The use of lasers in procedures such as gum contouring involves little to no bleeding and reduces the risk for infection. These tools also allow for more precision and can preserve more of the patient’s natural oral structures.

The digitization of dental technology can result in shorter procedure times, reduced recovery periods, and quicker creation of dental restorations such as crowns and bridges. For example, our dental office  uses digital intraoral cameras and software to take images of the patient’s teeth and design his or her new smile. For any procedure that requires local anesthesia, we use The Wand® for pain-free injections.
