Cosmetic dentistry isn’t always about simply making your smile look better. That’s certainly one of the benefits to undergoing cosmetic dentistry procedures, but it’s not always the end goal. For many people, cosmetic dentistry serves two purposes. It helps restore your smile to its former brilliance, in addition to ensuring that your teeth are functioning properly.

So let’s look at how cosmetic dentistry accomplishes both of those tasks.

Improving your smile

If you have discolored or misshapen teeth, due to too much coffee or tobacco, or grinding your teeth at night, cosmetic dentistry can easily improve the look of your teeth. From traditional whitening services to veneers and crowns, improve the appearance of your teeth is a matter of what procedures are the best fit for you and your needs.

In-office whitening is your best bet for discolored teeth that don’t have deep enamel stains. However, if your stains do go deep into the enamel of your teeth, veneers may be a better option. They’re wafer-thin shells which cover your teeth, hiding the stained surface below them.

Fixing the function of your teeth

Cosmetic dentistry also has the advantage of restoring the function of your teeth. From chips and fractures to restoring ground-down teeth with crowns, cosmetic dentistry can give you back the full function of your teeth.
