What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the professional discipline of enhancing the look and surfacing of your teeth and gums. But there’s a whole lot more to it than image enhancements like whitenings. Far from just focusing on aesthetics alone, cosmetic dental treatments also usually bolster the strength, function, and health of your teeth.

What Dental Treatments are Cosmetic?

Several procedures primarily or secondarily fall under cosmetic dentistry:

    • Whitenings

    • Veneers

    • Dental bonding

    • Porcelain crowns, filings, and implants

    • BOTOX® injections

What is the Difference Between Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry aims to restore the health and function of your mouth, and even related areas like your throat (for sleep apnea) and sinuses.

However, the staff at Rollins Family Dental Center is fully committed to preserving the beauty of your smile, so many restorative services include some cosmetic dentistry. The best example is choosing natural-looking materials like porcelain, ceramic, and white resin in dental implants, cavity fillings, dentures, and bridges.

Which Cosmetic Treatment is Right for Me?

There are many effective cosmetic dental treatments, so it’s critical to think about the look you desire and discuss it with the friendly staff. Also feel free to share photos of the look you’d like to achieve so that the professionals at Rollins Family Dental Center can better understand your goals.

What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?

There are a variety of everyday benefits of cosmetic dental treatments, including:

    • Higher self-esteem when smiling

    • More natural-looking, youthful smile

    • Stronger repaired tooth and surfacing

    • Prevention of infection (covering chips)
    • Protection of gums (filling in small gaps)

So electing to get cosmetic dental procedures isn’t just about how you look and feel, the dentists at Rollins Family Dental Center often recommend them to help maintain your oral health and avoid developing more significant issues.
