Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care that uses advanced technologies, such as oral prosthetics, to improve the physical appearance of your teeth and smile. It provides quick, pain-free treatment options that can boost your confidence and self-esteem.

Cosmetic dentistry usually isn’t essential, but it can provide restorative benefits. For example, if you’re missing one or several permanent teeth, cosmetic dentistry can prevent more serious health problems like receding gums and bone deterioration.

What are the types of cosmetic dentistry?

At Gentle Care Dentistry & Implants, the team offers various types of cosmetic dentistry, including:


Veneers are thin, custom-crafted shells of porcelain or composite resin that your dentist bonds to the front of your permanent teeth. They restore balance and symmetry to your smile. Veneers are versatile and can address various imperfections, including chipped or cracked teeth, discolored teeth, and misshapen teeth.


Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that restore a damaged or decaying tooth to its near-original shape, size, and appearance. Once placed, a dental crown covers the entire portion of your tooth that sits above the gumline.


Orthodontics is a dentistry branch that uses appliances like braces and plastic trays to gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaws. This process restores balance to your smile while making daily tasks like chewing and biting much easier.

Smile makeovers

A smile makeover combines one or several dental procedures to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. It uses treatments like teeth whitening, veneers, and orthodontics to transform your smile and self-esteem.

Teeth whitening

The team at Gentle Care Dentistry & Implants offers teeth whitening treatment with custom take-home trays. To achieve a bright, white smile, you squeeze a whitening solution into your trays and wear them 30 minutes a day.  Slowly but surely, the solution eradicates stains and discoloration, revealing a brilliant smile underneath.

Full mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction combines several dental procedures to improve the physical function of your teeth and jaws. If you’re missing most of your permanent teeth, or you have a severe case of periodontal disease, you’re probably a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?

To determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, book an appointment at Gentle Care Dentistry & Implants. Following a comprehensive oral exam, a review of your oral health history, and a discussion of your treatment goals, the team can develop a custom plan that aligns with your individual needs.
