What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry generally refers to any dental work that enhances the appearance and functionality of a patient’s teeth, gums, and bite. Its primary focus is on ameliorating dental aesthetics in color, size, shape, alignment, position, and general smile appearance. Cosmetic dentistry encompasses endodontics as well as periodontics and primarily involves:

  • Adding of dental materials to teeth or gums, e.g., gum grafts, bonding, crowns(caps), and porcelain veneers (laminates), to mention a few.
  • Removal/extraction of part of tooth structure or gums, e.g., Gingivectomy and Enameloplasty (tooth re-contouring)
  • Teeth-straightening, which is complemented by an improvement in face appearance— generally known as orthodontics.
  • Changing tooth and gum coloration, e.g., zoom whitening, laser whitening, and gum depigmentation.

Common Treatment Option

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom Whitening is the most recommended and effective procedure to lighten discolored teeth. The zoom process lasts for about an hour that uses a special Zoom light that focuses on breaking up stubborn stains and discoloration.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are prosthetic substitutes for missing teeth that are placed into the jawbone to form “new” teeth roots. Dental crowns are then placed on the implants to create new, natural-looking teeth that complete your beautiful smile.


They are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates for the cosmetic dentist’s repertoire. The wafer-thin shells are bonded directly to your teeth to close gaps between teeth, enhance shape, and change teeth color that is not responding to whitening procedures. Veneers can turn the most damaged smiles into dazzling ones!


Bonding is a painless procedure of making minor repairs to teeth by using composite resin (an enamel-like dental composite) to restore the size of a broken tooth, match teeth, build up and fill teeth, and paint over stained teeth to match the color of other teeth.

Other treatment options include:

  • Reshaping
  • Gum Lifts
  • Bite Reclamation
  • Bridging
  • Straightening
