What is a Cosmetic Dentist? | Dentist 60134

Despite popular belief, there is no official dental specialty for cosmetic dentistry. There are,  however, countless courses, training programs, and advanced training that can allow a general dentist to master the art of dentistry. When considering cosmetic dentistry, start with a  consultation.  

What to Expect During Your Cosmetic Consultation 

Just as you wouldn’t paint a house that has yet to be built, you wouldn’t want to address the aesthetics of your smile, before ensuring the foundation is healthy and functional. For this reason, you may learn that you need restorative or orthodontic care before receiving the cosmetic plan. This can be disappointing for some patients, however, most agree that having a strong and healthy smile is even more important than its appearance.  

During your cosmetic consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to explain to our team how you’d like your smile to appear. With modern technology and procedures, our team can address and  solve a variety of concerns, including: 

● Diastema (gaps between teeth) 

● Whitening a dull smile 

● Repairing chipped or cracked teeth 

● Building up worn teeth 

● Reshaping 

● Crown lengthening (to correct a “gummy” smile)  

● Misaligned or crooked teeth 

The services recommended during your consultation may include one or more of the following:  

Porcelain veneers 

Teeth whitening 

● Inlays and onlays 

Dental Implants 

● Dentures 

● Tooth-colored fillings 

● Orthodontics 

During your appointment, our team will provide you with a detailed plan for how to achieve your goals. From there, you’ll be able to plan the appointments, financing, and more. Often a few small changes can drastically improve  

the appearance of a smile. It’s very possible that in 1-2 short visits, you will be smiling with confidence.  

If you’ve considered cosmetic dentistry, but aren’t sure where to start, contact us. Our team of professionals will provide you with an individual plan.
