What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

February 26, 2018

In most cases nowadays, dentists perform cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your teeth, and this is what we call “Cosmetic Dentistry.”

If your teeth are misshapen, discoloured, have gaps, misaligned and worn, modern cosmetic dentistry can give you a better smile through a variety of methods. Some of the most common procedures include crowns, veneers, implants, composite bonding, whitening, inlays, and onlays. These procedures help boost confidence, enhance appearance and in some cases, can also improve oral problems.

Cosmetic dentistry has been around for many years now, but today, the materials and equipment used are more advanced, durable and help achieve a better overall appearance compared to the past.

Also, it is essential to take note that cosmetic dentistry is not an official field of dentistry. In British Columbia, it is also not recognized as a specialty of the College of Dental Surgeons. However, many dentists used the term cosmetic dentists or specialist after they have undergone specialty training in one or more field of dental medicine. For example, an Orthodontist is considered a cosmetic dentist that is specialized in the straightening of teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is an important service for patients to achieve a healthy and confident smile. Here at Toronto Beach Dental, we offer a wide array of cosmetic dental procedures that you can choose from. Talk to our dental team today and start your journey to a better smile.
