A cosmetic dental procedure is any service that helps to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, or bite. People who undergo a cosmetic procedure may be interested in fixing a tooth that is chipped or broken, correcting misaligned teeth, or addressing an issue like discoloration or minor overcrowding. Popular cosmetic procedures include veneers, teeth whitening, and Botox.
Some cosmetic dental procedures are performed purely for aesthetic reasons, which many dentists offer as elective services. These procedures can be used to treat a variety of conditions that affect the appearance of the smile, such as wrinkles around the mouth due to aging, facial injuries from sports-related accidents, and chips in the teeth. Certain procedures may also help prevent issues like TMJ disorder by straightening the bite.

No, they don’t! Procedures like teeth whitening are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. You’ll come in for your appointment and leave with a bright smile the same day.

But it won’t be long at all before you can show off your beautiful new smile to everyone around you!
