Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dental health that improves the teeth's appearance, gums or bite and the enhancement of a person's smile. Cosmetic dentistry involves mastery of dental materials and a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dental anatomy. A cosmetic dentist is a restorative dentist who has an in-depth knowledge about the concepts of smile design, being able to communicate dental vision to a dental technician, and creating dental means for the improvement of an individual's general appearance. A cosmetic dentist is usually affiliated by a dental health professional organization that is providing continuing education, with various levels of accreditation for verification of excellent achievement in the area of cosmetic dentistry. It takes years of training and experience to be specialized in dental health, performing many cosmetic dental procedures with the highest quality.
But what differs cosmetic dentistry from restorative dentistry? A cosmetic dentist anchorage caters services to everyone who wants to improve appearance and restore dental functions according to the patient's definition of beauty. The different cosmetic treatments include teeth whitening, composite bonding, inlays and onlays, procelain and cosmetic veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain bridgework, dental implants, tooth-colored fillings, clear orthondic aligners, cosmetic gum surgery, and tooth contouring and reshaping. Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is an inexpensive treatment to brighten your smile which is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. Laser whitening involves application of bleaching chemical to whiten the teeth, and a beam or argon laser is used for accelerating the bleaching, lightening the color of the teeth. Composite bonding involves the technique of applying tooth-colored and enamel-like composite resin on a tooth's surface, sculpted to shape, hardened and polished, to improve appearance and strengthen chipped teeth.
Porcelain and composite veneers are designed for closing gaps, enhancing the shape of the teeth, or changing the color of the teeth that don't respond well to whitening. Dental implants are usually made of titanium which are prosthetic replacements for any missing tooth. Dental bridgework or false teeth is used to replace missing tooth involving fusion of two porcelain crowns filling the areas left by the missing tooth. Odontoplasty, enameloplasty, tooth reshaping or contouring use laser or drill for removing a part of the tooth enamel in order to correct a small chip or for altering the position, length or shape of the teeth.
