What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?

Cosmetic dentists help patients with dental issues that impact the appearance and function of their mouth and smile. While regular dentistry focuses on the overall health of the teeth and mouth, a cosmetic dentist focuses on dental issues that affect a person’s appearance. A cosmetic dentist can help to repair damage such as missing or broken teeth in addition to other services that improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth.

What Does a Cosmetic Dentist Do?

Cosmetic dentists provide a variety of services to help improve the appearance of their patients’ smiles. They can provide replacement teeth through a variety of techniques including dentures and implants, whitening teeth to remove stains and discoloration, and straightening and realigning teeth to allow them to fit together naturally.

What our guests are saying

  • My teeth were always crooked on top. It bothered me immensely and I never really smiled. I would purse my lips so people couldn’t see my teeth. I was self-conscious and I never outgrew that, even as an adult.

He makes you feel at home and takes a special interest in you and your needs. The whole staff is very personal, they remember the little things about you that make you feel comfortable. I am so happy with the results and the experience – I’d do it all again.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a cosmetic dentist and a regular dentist?

Regular dentists focus on the overall health of a person’s mouth and teeth and provide services to deal with infections and damage that can cause discomfort, pain, and other health issues. Cosmetic dentists focus on issues that have more cosmetic impacts and may not pose serious health risks to the patient.

Is cosmetic dentistry the same as orthodontics?

Orthodontists generally provide services to straighten and realign teeth and improve a person’s bite. While cosmetic dentistry can involve some forms of minimally invasive braces and orthodontic devices, it primarily focuses on other elements of a person’s teeth and smile.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

Cosmetic dentistry costs will vary significantly depending on the type of procedure and the scope of the issues being resolved. Services such as teeth whitening, for example, are much less expensive than more involved procedures such as dentures or implants that require more complex procedures.

Is cosmetic dentistry covered by dental insurance?

Some cosmetic dentistry procedures can be covered by dental insurance plans if they are necessary after an accident or injury or are medically necessary. Generally, procedures that are purely cosmetic and are not medically required will not be covered by dental insurance plans. The amount and type of coverage will depend on each individual situation and the type of insurance plan that the individual has.

What are the health benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

You probably know that cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile and your self-esteem, but did you know that it can also help to improve your oral health? There are many ways that making cosmetic improvements to your teeth can also benefit the health of your teeth and gums. Here are three oral health improvements you can achieve through cosmetic dentistry.

1. Fix your bite and help your jaws

If you have a bad bite, it does more than affect your smile. A misaligned bite can stress your jaws and cause symptoms of TMJ disorder. Fixing an overbite or other misalignment eases jaw stress and in turn can relieve TMJ symptoms like jaw pain, headaches and neck pain. Sometimes straightening teeth is recommended as TMJ treatment, and if you desire straightening your teeth for cosmetic reasons, you may get stronger jaws as a bonus.

2. Straighten your teeth for their own good

Overlapping or crooked teeth not only affect your jaws, they also change the way your teeth come into contact with each other. If this is the case, your teeth can become worn down by this mechanical wear. Our Westminster dentist can straighten crooked teeth with orthodontics or Invisalign. Having your teeth straightened not only makes you look better and feel better about your smile, it can also protect you teeth from damaging contact.

3. Replace missing teeth to keep a solid foundation for oral health

You can improve your oral health by replacing missing teeth as soon as possible after losing one or more teeth. Just one missing tooth creates a gap that can cause the teeth surrounding it to shift out of place. When the foundation of your teeth is undermined by the loss of a tooth, the entire dental structure becomes weaker causing oral health issues such as crooked or loose teeth. A cosmetic dentist can replace missing teeth with dentures, implants or bridges to improve your smile and to keep the foundation for your teeth strong.
