A healthy mouth with a beautiful smile can improve your self-image, your confidence and much more. Cosmetic dentistry creates a positive change to your teeth—and to your smile.

When cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, people tend to think of tooth whitening or veneers, but a cosmetic dentist can provide much more. Today, cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve to where cosmetic dentists can address your functional and aesthetic concerns.

Many cosmetic dentistry services, including teeth whitening and tooth restoration, can be done in one visit.

Whatever your reason for getting cosmetic surgery, the decision is personal. One of the keys to success is to set realistic expectations. Cosmetic surgery alone won’t change your life. It can’t solve your personal problems or make you look like someone else, but it may give you greater self-confidence and add to your sense of well-being.

Successful results often depend, in part, on how well you and your dentist communicate. Make sure you feel comfortable with your dentist and that you are open with him or her about your goals and questions.
