FAQs: What is Cosmetic Dentistry?












Have you ever considered receiving cosmetic dentistry? These services refer to any procedure designed to address the esthetics of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic dentistry helps patients receive brighter, straighter teeth and a renewed level of self-confidence. At A New Smiles Dental Group, we offer the latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry?

Question:  How can cosmetic dentistry address teeth stains?

Answer: While many people use store bought teeth whiteners, over-the-counter teeth whiteners rarely offer the same level of brightening and may lead to tooth sensitivity. We offer KOR Whitening, which employs a set of whitening trays and a powerful bleaching gel. Using this system, you can brighten your smile by multiple shades from the comfort of your own home.

Question: What are veneers?

Answer: Veneers are thin shells of porcelain placed over the front of the teeth. Veneers are custom-made and mimic the look and function of natural tooth enamel. Veneers offer lifelike restoration, masking teeth stains, correcting damaged or malformed teeth, and even closing gaps between teeth.

Question: What if I have misalignment?

Answer: For crooked or crowded teeth, we offer a cosmetic solution that doesn’t require the use of metal braces. Invisalign and ClearCorrect both employ clear plastic aligners to gradually and gently reposition your teeth for an even, beautiful smile.

Question: How can cosmetic dentistry address damaged teeth?

Answer: If you injure a tooth or experience severe tooth decay, we can repair the tooth using porcelain crowns. A crown fits over the visible portion of a tooth, protecting the remaining structure and preventing further damage or decay. We use porcelain to make our crowns, offering a strong and long lasting restoration that looks completely natural.
