What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell explains cosmetic dentistry, focusing on enhancing the appearance of your teeth in terms of color, shape, size, and alignment.

People frequently ask about cosmetic dentistry and what it entails. Essentially, cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of your teeth, whether that involves making them whiter, larger, or altering their shape. It’s a field dedicated to improving dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance.

We offer a free consultation where we can discuss your desires and evaluate how we might modify the size or shape of your teeth to achieve the look you want. This consultation is a great opportunity to explore the possibilities and make informed decisions about your dental care.
