What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is dental care that focuses on improving your smile. There are many procedures that can transform your smile, such as veneers, cosmetic bonding, teeth whitening, and more! Depending on your unique goals, your personalized treatment plan may include a combination of treatments and services.

Here are some imperfections that cosmetic dental treatments can fix:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or uneven teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Decayed or damaged teeth
  • Teeth that appear too small or too large
  • Teeth with surface irregularities or blemishes

If you want to brighten, straighten, complete, or otherwise improve your smile, we can help!

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for You?

Cosmetic Dentistry in North Carolina | Carolina Dental ArtsTo determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I unhappy with the appearance of my teeth?
  • Do I want a brighter, more even smile?
  • Are there specific flaws like chips, gaps, or discoloration I want to fix?
  • Am I willing to invest time and money into improving my smile?
  • Am I seeking a long-term solution for dental imperfections?
  • Will enhancing my smile improve my confidence and quality of life?

Answering these questions can help clarify your goals and readiness for cosmetic dentistry. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to discuss your smile vision. With treatment options at various price points, you can start making progress on your smile goals at your next dental visit. Whether you want to fix a small imperfection or a complete smile makeover, we can design a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs, goals, and budget.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic service in today’s dental offices. At Carolina Dental Arts, we use the Philips Zoom! whitening system to provide our patients with safe and effective whitening treatment. We offer in-office whitening that noticeably whitens your smile in just one visit and whitening kits you can use at home.

Porcelain Veneers

If you want to transform your smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice. We apply these thin porcelain shells to the front of your teeth to hide flaws like chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. Dental porcelain is remarkably natural-looking and durable, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile enhancement. While we can apply just one veneer, many patients prefer to treat all the teeth in their smile line for a total smile transformation.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

For smaller imperfections, we can use dental bonding to reshape and restore the appearance of your teeth, enhancing their overall aesthetic appeal. During this treatment, we apply and sculpt a tooth-colored composite resin to the teeth to achieve the desired look. Dental bonding is a great option for correcting dental flaws quickly and conservatively.

Tooth Replacement

While our restorative procedures aim to restore oral function, many of them also improve your smile’s look. For instance, when we replace your missing teeth, you’ll be able to eat a more varied diet and speak more clearly. However, another benefit of addressing tooth loss is improving your smile’s look. We can fill the gaps in your smile using different treatments, such as:

  • Dental bridges: These rows of artificial teeth connect to your natural teeth or dental implants to replace missing teeth.
  • Dentures: We offer partial and full dentures to replace any number of missing teeth. If you have lost all the teeth in your upper or lower arch, we also provide various implant denture options for enhanced stability and comfort.
  • Dental implants and mini dental implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. They are the best option for replacing missing teeth due to their long-term oral health benefits. By replacing the missing tooth roots, dental implants maintain the health of your jawbone. We also offer mini dental implants, a durable tooth replacement solution that is more efficient and economical than conventional implants.

Aesthetic Restorative Procedures

Other restorative procedures that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth are tooth-colored dental fillings, dental crowns, and inlays and onlays. These treatments restore damaged teeth discreetly, improving their function and appearance.

In addition to these procedures, we offer various orthodontic treatments that can enhance your smile by realigning your teeth.

With so many diverse options under one roof, you can rest assured that our team at Carolina Dental Arts can help you love your smile again.

It’s always best to check with your provider to ensure you understand your policy’s coverage. Our experienced office staff can also help you maximize your benefits and help you finance your procedure if needed.

Cosmetic dentistry has many benefits beyond an aesthetically pleasing smile. The simple act of smiling has many positive effects that often go unnoticed:

  • Psychological benefits: Smiling releases endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin, chemicals that boost your mood and promote a sense of happiness.
  • Social benefits: When you smile, you appear more approachable, trustworthy, and confident in social and professional settings. Studies show that smiling can even make you look cooler!
  • Medical benefits: Smiling has been linked to lower blood pressure and improved heart health. It is also associated with reduced stress levels and a stronger immune system. Plus, the chemicals released when you smile can even reduce pain!

It’s easy to smile when you love the way your teeth look! Cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile, giving you the confidence to smile brightly in every situation.
