What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care designed to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, mouth and smile. Most cosmetic dentistry procedures are elective, but in some cases, they provide restorative benefits as well.
Cosmetic dentistry is incredibly versatile. We can use cosmetic dentistry to improve the color, shape, position, alignment and overall appearance of our patients’ smiles.
What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Do You Offer?
Dr. Weiner offers a number of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain or composite resin fixed to the surface of your natural teeth. Dr. Weiner might recommend veneers if you have stained or cracked teeth. Veneers can also change the size of your teeth or fill spaces between your teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures. During cosmetic bonding, Dr. Weiner applies a tooth-colored resin to a cracked, chipped or damaged tooth. Bonding is an in-office procedure that requires just one easy visit.
Dr. Weiner offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. Teeth whitening treatment isn’t permanent, but it can eradicate stains and discoloration from your teeth for months at a time.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you’re unhappy with the physical appearance of your teeth or smile, you’re a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. However, the type of treatment you’ll most benefit from depends on your oral health history, budget and aesthetic goals.
Following an exam and discussion, our dentist can make recommendations that align with your individual needs. For example, if you have yellow or discolored teeth, Dr. Weiner might suggest a series of in-office whitening sessions. On the other hand, if you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, he might recommend dental implants.
