What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Cosmetic dentistry is both an art and a science that is combined to enhance your smile and self-confidence. Unlike general dentistry that focuses on oral hygiene, as well as preventing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, mouth and smile. However, these treatments or services are elective, whereas general dentistry addresses problems that require necessary treatment.

From subtle changes to major repairs, cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile and enhance your appearance while building your confidence. With certain treatments, discolored, misshapen, crooked, chipped, and missing teeth will become a thing of the past.

With today’s advancements in ceramic and composite technology, cosmetic dentistry is even more beautiful, natural-looking, durable, and predictable than in years past. The results of cosmetic dentistry can last for many years if taken care of.

Typical types of treatments and services include:

Most techniques are non-surgical and can be completed within the office and sometimes, in one visit. If you are an anxious patient that fears dental procedures, ask about sedation dentistry to help soothe your nerves and give you total relaxation during your visit.
