Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of a person's teeth. Certain types of food, drinks, and chemicals can stain tooth enamel and eventually lead to oral problems. Accidents, too, can cause teeth to fracture, chip, or be pushed out of alignment. Sometimes, however, a person may have minor imperfections in their dental structure that makes them feel less confident.
Meant to correct these problems and reconstruct people's smiles, cosmetic dentistry involves various restorative procedures and treatments to repair tooth damage and correct dental structure. Some standard procedures in cosmetic dentistry are teeth cleaning, whitening, and re-alignment. Dentists also use such things as veneers and bonding to repair damaged teeth.
