5 Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry procedures help improve the appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile. These processes are typically optional rather than essential.

Common cosmetic procedures are relatively simple, while others require complex surgery and special care. Here are 5 of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures:

Tooth Bleaching


This is a quick and effective method to brighten up your smile. Tooth bleaching is a great option if you don’t want to commit to a heavy duty procedure and simply want to whiten your teeth a little. Avoid going for over-the-counter bleaching products and pay a visit to your dentist instead.

Composite Bonding


Composite bonding is a tactic of repairing damaged, decayed, and discolored teeth using material that looks similar to the color of your tooth enamel. This procedure is performed by drilling out the decay and applying composite onto the surface of your tooth. This is then molded into the right shape before exposing it to a high-intensity light.

Dental Veneers


Dental veneers are customized for each patient to resemble their original teeth. They are usually made from medical-grade ceramic and look quite realistic. Veneers are a solution for multiple dental issues including crooked teeth, cracked enamel, and observable gap between two teeth.

Braces are traditionally popular among children, but adults are also increasingly opting for them to improve their smile. Invisible braces are a great option for appearance-conscious adults as they go unnoticed and maintain the natural look of your teeth. They can effectively correct misaligned teeth relieve associated issues such as chronic headaches.
