Many dental services fall into the realm of cosmetic dentistry. Whenever a procedure is performed in order to preserve the appearance of your smile, it could be considered cosmetic or aesthetic services.
Often times, cosmetic and restorative dentistry overlap. Crowns may be considered cosmetic when performed on front or “anterior” teeth.
Whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry and so are clear teeth aligners and braces in some instances. Cosmetic dentistry can dramatically improve your appearance but it can also contribute to your speech and eating habits.
Some cosmetic services include: dental veneers, whitening, crowns, Invisalign, and much more.
If you are considering changing the appearance of your smile, contact your dentist for his or her recommendation. Cosmetic dentists are often general dentists that excel in and enjoy cosmetic dental procedures.
