It can be easy to think that cosmetic dentistry offers no real benefits to your oral health, and is only used to help the aesthetics of your smile. In truth, cosmetic dental treatments have a wide variety of applications that can be used to repair dental issues and improve your oral health. For example, cosmetic dentistry can repair teeth that have been cracked, fractured, broken, or chipped. Cosmetic dentistry can also be used to replace any missing teeth, regardless if they were knocked out or had to be extracted due to decay.

Here is a list of cosmetic dental treatments and how they are used:

Dental crowns: Crowns are caps that are placed on the tops of damaged teeth to repair them and to prevent damage in the future.
Veneers: This treatment is used to help the patient mask imperfections in a tooth by using strong shells that are shaped and cut to your needs, and then directly fused onto the front of your damaged or misshapen teeth.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are used to replace any lost teeth with installing artificial look-alikes directly into the jawbone for a permanent fit.
Teeth Whitening Treatments: This is a specialized cosmetic service used to whiten teeth and in order to enhance your smile.
