What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is aimed at enhancing the aesthetics and appearance of the teeth and mouth, rather than improving the functionality. While most procedures are not always necessary to have a fully functioning smile, cosmetic dentistry can improve your confidence and overall appearance of your teeth. Your smile is one of the first things people see when they meet you, so it is not unreasonable to want a smile that you are proud to show off. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing color, alignment, and symmetry of your teeth and smile.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can be different depending on the dental office. At Covington Dental Arts we provide dental crowns, dental veneers, and teeth whitening. We are dedicated to providing a variety of solutions and procedures for you to choose from.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures for you to choose from. No matter what kind of changes you are looking for, we are confident that you can benefit from our services to restore and improve your smile. Some of the cosmetic procedures we offer include:
We offer dental crowns which are essentially caps for the teeth. Crowns are designed to enhance the appearance and strength of the teeth and smile overall. We offer permanent and same-day temporary crowns, so your teeth can always look their best. With tooth decay, the teeth can become weak, discolored, and even break. With dental crowns, this strength, stability, and appearance can be restored.
Dental crowns can also help with the symmetry of your smile. If a patient has teeth that are too small or not perfectly aligned, dental crowns provide an affordable and effective solution to a beautiful smile.
Another benefit of dental crowns is that they stay in place much better than dentures. Dentures can move out of place as you brush and eat, and risk getting food and other bacteria building up in the mouth. Dental crowns are more durable and can withstand brushing, following, and eating.
Dental veneers are basically caps for the teeth that can cover imperfections and enhance the overall look of your smile. Veneers are often considered an affordable alternative to dental implants and crowns. Veneers are especially beneficial in cases where the imperfections do not necessarily affect the functionality of the teeth, but rather may impact your confidence or self-esteem. At Covington Dental Arts, we are careful to match the veneers to the rest of your teeth to ensure a natural look.
Other benefits of our dental veneers include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Durable solution
All of the dental crowns and veneers we provide are custom made for each patient. We make them to match your surrounding teeth and restore your smile as a whole.
Teeth whitening is among the most popular and highly recommended cosmetic procedures. Yellow teeth can be very frustrating, especially when it’s caused by something as out of your control as genetics. That said, as with any procedure it is important to discuss these types of procedures with your dentist. There are pros and cons to teeth whitening just like any other procedure, and our dentist can give you clarity if this type of treatment is right for you.
Over time, teeth can become yellow as a result of different food and drinks that can accumulate bacteria. In fact, substances that can stain a white shirt can stain your teeth. Genetics may also play a role in teeth staining over time. Some people are born with more yellow enamel, and others are more susceptible to yellowing over time regardless of diet or lifestyle. No matter the reason, many people can benefit from the teeth whitening treatments offered by Covington Dental Arts.
When you trust your dentist with your teeth whitening treatments, you know that they will be done right and down safe. Teeth whitening kits that can be bought at the store may not always work and may damage the enamel on your teeth. We offer only the highest quality whitening solutions that are guaranteed to work.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Necessary?
The decision about whether or not cosmetic dentistry is required will depend on your personal preference as well as your dentist’s recommendation. Another thing to be considered is many insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic dentistry may be needed for a variety of reasons, from crooked teeth to missing teeth, to an injury.
