What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dental practice that primarily fixes the aesthetic issues of your smile compared to health-focused treatments like restorative dentistry. While there are cosmetic dentists that specialize in this field, general dentists are trained in cosmetic dentistry as well.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Treat?


Cosmetic dental work can treat various aesthetic issues including:

  • Worn or discolored teeth
  • Chips or cracks
  • Minor misalignments
  • Tooth stains
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Recessive gum line

Our Cosmetic Treatments

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a quick and easy solution to cover stains, chips, or cracks by attaching a customized piece of resin to your tooth. We can match the resin to the shape and color of your surrounding teeth to create a seamless smile. Compared to other dental care, bonding is a reversible and affordable solution for cosmetic imperfections.

Teeth Whitening

Even with good hygiene, the color of our teeth can dull or become stained over time. Teeth whitening can help reverse tooth discoloration and stains to give you a brighter smile. Our practice offers teeth whitening kits and customized trays that we create in-office so you can whiten your smile in the convenience of your own home.

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment with a cosmetic twist that can straighten your teeth for a symmetrical-looking smile. Invisalign uses a subtle see-through tray that gradually straightens your teeth and has a minimal impact on your look compared to traditional braces.

Gum Grafting

Even when we have beautiful teeth, a recessive gum line can affect the look of a smile. Gum grafting is a way to reverse the effects of a recessive gum line, restore tissue to the area, and balance out your smile.

Restorations can Serve Cosmetic Purposes

In some cases, a tooth that's damaged beyond repair may need to be extracted to prevent further health issues. If you have missing or damaged teeth, we can use dental implants and other restorations in combination with cosmetic treatments. Dental implants replace your tooth roots and act as a base for life-like tooth replacements to provide a natural-looking smile.

Cosmetic Treatment Timeline

Patients must have good oral health to be eligible for cosmetic dental treatments.

Day of Procedure


Our cosmetic treatment process begins with a consultation with our dentists so we can better understand each patient's dental goals. Our doctors may recommend certain treatments to match your unique needs and circumstances.


Before starting any cosmetic dental care, our dentists will give you a proper oral exam to make sure you have good oral health. If we find any underlying problems, we can take care of the health issues first and then return to your cosmetic options after you've recovered.


You can choose one treatment or several depending on your desired results. Some treatments like teeth whitening have no recovery time, but procedures like gum grafting may require some recovery before we move on to the next treatment.

Enjoy the Results

After you've finished the treatment, you can now go out and show off your smile to the Belmont area and beyond. Practice good hygiene and other healthy habits to make the results last longer.
