Cosmetic Dentistry's Offerings

Are you disappointed with your smile? You're not alone. Many people are looking for ways to improve their smile, and these days dentists can do a lot more than just whiten your teeth a little.

Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety procedures including:

Tooth whitening
Bonding (in which tooth colored materials are glued to teeth)
Enamel shaping (in which teeth are shaped to be more visually appealing)
Bridging (where a false tooth is glued into a gap in your teeth)
Veneers
Braces
Other modifications that are less mainstream

Most of these procedures would not be covered by your dental insurance and you should consult your dentist before undergoing any of them. You should also consult more than one cosmetic dentist to get different suggestions on what should be done to improve your smile.
