Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentists provide general dental care with a focus on conservative restorative dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry, also called operative dentistry, is primarily concerned with the treatment of diseases and/or defects of the teeth which do not require full restorations.

Treatments aim to restore proper tooth form, function and appearance, while maintaining tooth integrity.

Services Include

  • Aesthetic (cosmetic) dentistry (whitening, crowns, veneers, implants, etc.)
  • Tooth-colored restorations and tooth whitening (bleaching)
  • Porcelain veneers (material placed over the tooth to recreate its natural look)
  • Other aspects of aesthetic bonding
