Most Common and Most Transformative Cosmetic Dental Procedures

June 12, 2023

Cosmetic dentistry is for anyone who wants to improve the way their smile looks. Today, there are several treatment options available that can promise anything from subtle improvements to major smile transformations.

If you’re exploring your options, check out four of the most common cosmetic dental procedures and their effects:

1. Cosmetic Makeovers

A cosmetic makeover isn’t a treatment per se, but an approach. It uses several cosmetic dentistry procedures to provide patients with an ideal version of their smile.

This approach is ideal for anyone dealing with severe cosmetic issues and even when patients need to resolve some oral health issues, such as missing teeth. 

A cosmetic smile makeover not only changes the way your teeth look; it can also change your overall appearance, improve your oral health, and make you feel more confident about yourself.

2. Teeth Whitening

Maintaining a white smile is difficult, but through professional whitening treatments, you can get pearly white teeth, just like your favorite celebrities.

Having a bright smile can improve your self-confidence and even change the way people perceive you. It’s been proven scientifically that people with healthy-looking teeth can make a better impression when meeting someone new. 

Moreover, if you’re happy with your smile, then you’re more likely to flaunt it and come off as a positive and happy individual!

3. Botox and Fillers

Many dentists now provide Botox and filler injections. Some patients choose them purely for cosmetic purposes to remove fine lines or subtly change a feature.

But did you know these injectables can also have therapeutic properties? For example, if you’re dealing with TMJ and experience pain in your jaw joints, Botox injections can relax the muscles and ease your discomfort.

But if you want to get these injections purely for cosmetic purposes, you might wonder if the dentist is really the right person to help. Well, dentists are experts in facial features and can help map out the injections to provide you with great results.

4. Veneers

Veneers are thin shells made from porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the natural teeth.

They are simple procedures that promise great results. Veneers can cover:

  • Severe staining and discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Irregularly sized and misshapen teeth
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Minor tooth alignment issues
  • Worn-down teeth, etc.

Veneers last for up to 15 years with the right maintenance. All the shells are custom-made to help you get the results you want, down to the last detail. 

Moreover, veneers are made for each tooth, so they look completely natural, and you can choose the degree of cosmetic improvement you want.
