5 Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Are you unhappy with your smile’s appearance? Well, you don’t have to be for very long!

Cosmetic dentistry has many amazing ways to help patients achieve their smile goals. Whether you’re dealing with minor imperfections or need a major makeover, these procedures can help you become more confident in your appearance.

Here are the top 5 most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. Get to know them and see which one might help you reach your ideal smile:

1. Professional Teeth-Whitening

Diet, lifestyle, and even some medical conditions can affect the color of your smile.

Luckily, even if your teeth are stained and discolored, professional tooth-whitening can help give you pearly-white teeth. You can find professional treatment straight at the dentist’s office, both in-office and at home, and get truly spectacular results.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we do here at Westside Dental Studio. Though a simple and non-invasive treatment, the results can often be dramatic!

2. Veneers or Lumineers

Veneers and Lumineers are a great way to change how your smile looks completely.

They’re both a type of thin porcelain that gets attached to the front surface of the natural tooth and can address:

  • Severe staining and discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Irregularly-sized teeth
  • Minor chips or cracks, etc.

Veneers are slightly thicker than Lumineers, which means the dentist needs to shave a bit of the tooth’s enamel to create a rough surface texture. This allows the veneer to bond perfectly with the tooth and stay in place.

Lumineers are much thinner. They are reversible but might not be the best option for significant cosmetic imperfections. Lumineers are slightly more translucent than traditional veneers, so they may not fully cover stains or cracks.

3. Enameloplasty

Enameloplasty is the process of tooth recontouring. It can be used as prepping for other cosmetic treatments (such as veneers) or as a stand-alone intervention.

For instance, patients who have misshapen teeth can opt for enameloplasty and get the tooth reshaped to match the other natural teeth and create a perfectly even smile.

4. Botox

Many dentists actually offer Botox injections, either for cosmetic purposes or to treat the symptoms of tooth grinding or TMJ disorders, such as pain.

Botox is a very popular procedure that can restore a youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the face.

5. Clear Aligners

If you have issues with tooth position, clear aligners can help you get a perfectly straight smile discreetly.

While more serious alignment issues might need braces, there are many mild to moderate imperfections that can be addressed through clear aligners.
