Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on enhancing the appearance of your smile. There are many cosmetic procedures that also deliver restorative benefits. For example, a dental crown might protect a fractured tooth, yet it also improves your smile. 

Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures and techniques include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Crowns
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Veneers
  • Invisalign® 
  • Myobrace®

While some procedures require multiple visits, Dr. Song works hard to make the most of your time. She even offers one-day crowns with CEREC, or Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This technology allows Dr. Song to create beautiful crowns while you wait, allowing you to leave with your newly restored smile the same day. 

Why pursue cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Everyone has unique motivations for choosing cosmetic dentistry. For some, a lack of confidence about their smile is the driving factor. The power of confidence in all types of interpersonal relationships can’t be overstated. 

There is considerable research to support the notion that a great smile changes the way others perceive you. That can mean advantages at work as well as in social settings. 

For others, cosmetic dentistry is a means to achieve a straighter smile that is easier to keep clean. Options like Invisalign and Myobrace enhance your dental alignment, making it easier to brush and floss all areas of your teeth. 

How do I know which cosmetic dentistry options best meet my needs?

Every cosmetic dentistry treatment begins with a thorough dental exam and an evaluation of your dental health. This gives Dr. Song the information she needs to craft a custom treatment plan for your unique set of needs. 

If you have dental decay or active gum disease, those issues will likely need to be addressed before you move forward with a cosmetic procedure. Dr. Song works with you to plan your treatment path. You’ll know what to expect well in advance of your visits, and you’ll also know the full cost, which empowers you to make a decision in line with your needs. 

The process begins with a quick phone call or a few moments on the online scheduling page. Make today the day you move one step closer to your ideal smile.
