Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

When you think of your time spent at the dentist, dental cleanings might be the first thing that comes to mind. General dentistry is focused on oral health and keeping your teeth clean and cavity-free. Good oral health is important, but it’s not the only element of a beautiful smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care dedicated to improving the way your teeth look. Cosmetic dental treatments include services like teeth whitening for a brighter smile or restorative procedures like tooth-colored fillings or implants to repair damaged smiles.

The team at White Oak Dental: Ted Thomas, DMD, specializes in cosmetic dentistry along with general dentistry. Dr. Thomas can make your teeth look brighter, whiter, and even straighter with cosmetic dental procedures.

What issues can cosmetic dentistry fix?

Your teeth are naturally strong, but years of use can lead to damage, discoloration, and other irregularities. The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the look of teeth by addressing these imperfections.

Cosmetic dentistry can address many common concerns, like:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips and cracks
  • Crooked or gapped teeth
  • Missing teeth

If there’s something about your smile that bothers you, cosmetic dentistry could be right for you. Many cosmetic dental procedures are elective, but others have functional as well as aesthetic benefits. Talk to Dr. Thomas to find out more about the best options for your smile.
