What are the different types of cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a form of professional oral care that focuses on improving the appearance and health of your teeth. At the same time, cosmetic dentistry is usually considered optional as it primarily focuses on the appearance of the teeth.
Composite bonding is a method of repairing decayed, damaged, or discoloured teeth by using material that matches the tooth's enamel colour. Your dentist will first drill out the decay and then apply the composite to the tooth's surfaces.
Next, they will "sculpt" the tooth into the correct shape and cure it with high-intensity lights. Bonding effectively covers the tooth's decay and creates a pleasing appearance that it is a healthy tooth.

Implants can be used to replace damaged or lost teeth. A dentist will place a small titanium screw in the jaw near the location of the missing tooth. These implants are nearly indistinguishable from surrounding natural teeth, and implants are permanently fixed into place after the bone and supporting tissue have fused. After implant placement, patients should practice careful oral hygiene to remove any food particles and plaque build-up.
Veneers are made of medical-grade ceramic or porcelain which covers your natural teeth. They are incredibly realistic and can correct many cosmetic issues such as crooked or cracked teeth, damaged enamel, visible gaps between teeth, and even broken teeth. A dental adhesive is used to attach the veneers to each tooth's front to help you achieve a perfect smile.
The most well-known cosmetic dentistry procedure is tooth whitening. The procedure is often performed in one visit to the dentist. The dentist will first clean each tooth of plaque, tartar, and other debris. This will restore the natural appearance. The teeth can be bleached to lighten them. Over time, food, drink, and smoking can cause teeth to become stained or worn. With professional kits, teeth whitening can be done in the dental chair or at home.
