Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your smile. Cosmetic procedures can remove yellowing stains, replace dark fillings or discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, correct the appearance of crooked teeth, and improve many other aesthetic issues.

Cosmetic dentistry is extremely popular and can dramatically improve the way you feel about yourself and your appearance.


What are cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Cosmetic dentistry includes an array of options that can individually or in combinations address your unique needs and concerns so you can achieve a beautiful smile. Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry options include:

  • Dental veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Gum contouring
  • Tooth-colored (or "white") fillings
  • Teeth whitening

Some options like crowns, bridges, and dentures are also considered restorative procedures.


What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a custom-designed treatment plan that's created just for you. Your smile makeover will include all the treatments and procedures needed to help you get a beautiful and healthy smile.

Procedures are performed in a specific sequence for optimal results. During your consultation visit, Dr. Anderson will discuss your particular goals toward suggesting the most appropriate treatment.


Can cosmetic treatments improve my oral health?

Yes, some cosmetic procedures can improve your oral health and improve the way your smile looks. Not only will you feel more confident, but you'll also avoid bad dental outcomes.

For instance, a dental crown provides protection and strength so that teeth are less likely to become damaged or decayed. Bridges and dentures replace missing teeth, which restores your bite balance and prevents uneven tooth wear and additional tooth loss.


What steps do I take for cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses everything from teeth whitening to a full mouth reconstruction. Your specific treatments will depend upon your current oral health and the goals you have for yourself.

The first step in pursuing any form of cosmetic dentistry is to receive a free consultation at Alexandria Dental Clinic. During your appointment, Dr. Anderson can assess your teeth and answer any questions you may have about available procedures.
