Cosmetic dental procedures

Within contemporary times, aesthetics has turned into a serious matter. As a result, only healthy teeth is often not enough.

Your smile represents a crucial role in your appearance. Dentistry has evolved to meet the patient’s expectations regarding how they want their teeth to look.

In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most common cosmetic dental procedures options.

In cosmetic dentistry, there is a wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures, materials, and technologies, such as:

Enamel bonding    

One of the easiest and fastest options to enhance aesthetic. Composite is directly placed and light-cured over the enamel to alter the shape of the tooth.

It is a quick and effective way to restore chipped borders or close diastemas (the gap between teeth).

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the frontal surface of your teeth. They allow changing the color, shape, and size of your teeth.

Dental impression needs to be taken and sent to a dental lab for them for customized results.

Porcelain veneers delivers higher aesthetic quality.


Whitening can be done in the dental office by a dental professional or it can be done at home, with products recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist. Both options are proven to be highly successful.

There are certain things to take into consideration, such as the color of your teeth.

Whitening works better on teeth with yellow tones than grayish tones.


Orthodontic treatment is the best option to fix a crooked smile. Wearing traditional braces or aligners can be the only thing you need to achieve the result you’re looking for.
