Cosmetic dentistry is treatment for purely aesthetic purposes. The most common reason people come to us for cosmetic dentistry is they have teeth that are badly discolored. A lot of patients ask us all the time, “Can I just buy the over-the-counter whitening agents in the store?” They’re not nearly as effective as the materials we use. We take impressions and we make custom fitting trays that fit their teeth.
Within cosmetic dentistry, the vast majority of times, we’re doing very conservative techniques. We want to give people the best smile we can so it gives them self confidence in the business world and in social interactions. When we do that, people are always happy.
