Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an unofficial subspecialty of dentistry devoted to improving the appearance of your smile. The cosmetic dentists at Gentle Touch Dental PC consider both the aesthetic and functional aspects of your teeth to make treatment recommendations. They never sacrifice the health or usefulness of your teeth to make them look better.

Dr. Rodriguez can make small or significant changes to your teeth, whether you want to enhance any of the following:

  • Color
  • Alignment
  • Disfigurement
  • Decay
  • Positioning

Your cosmetic dentist can use whitening systems, veneers, Invisalign®, and other methods to make your teeth look the way you desire.

What cosmetic treatments are available?

At Gentle Touch Dental PC, the providers offer a variety of treatments to enhance the aesthetics of your smile, including the following: 

  • Invisalign and orthodontics: straighten crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Veneers: cover discoloration or fix inconsistencies
  • Dental bonding: repair or reshape teeth
  • Dental implants: replace a missing tooth
  • Crowns and bridges: reinforce broken or replace missing teeth
  • Teeth whitening: brighten the color of your teeth

The providers use these techniques and more to improve the appearance of your teeth. If you have any concerns about the way your teeth look, be sure to discuss them with your dentist to find out what solutions they can offer. They may be able to fix imperfections that would otherwise be overlooked or use combined techniques for full transformations.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Many adults choose cosmetic dentistry to feel better about the appearance of their smiles. They often feel a boost in self-confidence and the way they present themselves to the world as a result of a cosmetic upgrade.

In addition to the emotional benefits of cosmetic dentistry, many treatments enhance your bite at the same time. For example, a dental implant to replace a missing tooth may also make it easier to chew and speak. Restorations like implants can also preserve the health of your jawbone and surrounding teeth.
