Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on improving the appearance of your smile. While preventive dentistry seeks to avoid decay and disease, and restorative care focuses on repairing damage and restoring the structural integrity of your smile, cosmetic treatments are done to bring you one step closer to your aesthetic ideals.
A great cosmetic dentist not only has the training and experience to complete advanced treatments, they also understand how to craft treatment plans that align with each patient’s unique bone structure and facial features.
Just as no two faces are exactly alike, cosmetic dentistry is customized to suit your specific needs and treatment goals. You play an active role in the treatment planning process and are encouraged to ask questions and express concerns as they arise.
What are some examples of cosmetic dentistry treatments?
Any treatment that improves the look of your smile can be considered a cosmetic dentistry treatment. Some examples of popular cosmetic treatments include:
- Professional teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- Tooth-colored fillings
- InvisalignⓇ alignment system
Treatments like dental implants, bridges, crowns, and dentures work to restore your smile, but also have cosmetic benefits. Many of these treatments can be covered under dental insurance plans, so be sure to ask the EZE Dental team about coverage during your visit.
What is a total smile restoration?
Total smile restoration, also called mouth restoration, is a combination of treatments used to restore a happy and healthy smile after significant damage brought on by traumatic injury or advanced decay.
If you need substantial dental work to restore and beautify your smile, Dr. Okoro works closely with you to create a treatment plan that aligns with your needs, goals, and budget. You’ll learn the pros and cons of various options, empowering you to make an informed decision about your care.
You’ll likely need advanced imaging to give Dr. Okoro more information about your bone and tooth structure. In some cases, surgical repair of the jaw or complex extractions are needed at the beginning of the restoration process. A total smile restoration often takes months to complete, as treatments need to be planned in a way that gives you time to heal.
