Depending on the nature of the receding gums, a cosmetic dentist can present various options for you. These options can vary from doing minimal bonding to gum grafting with a Periodontist.

If you want to change the appearance of your smile, but are not sure where to start, a cosmetic dentist can discuss treatment options with you. Today, we have the luxury of doing digital smile designs to allow patients to see what their future smile can look like.

Yes, we never do anything to compromise a patient's oral health. There are many forms of cosmetic dental treatment, some of which may not be suitable for everyone. So, it is important to have a detailed discussion about your treatment options with your dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry can be a type of restorative dentistry, but typically when we talk about restorative dentistry we refer to something that only restores overall oral health, without any emphasis on esthetics. Restorative dentistry is treatment that is necessary to prevent the spread of disease in the mouth that can be in the form of cavities, periodontal disease, acid erosion, etc. In comparison, cosmetic dentistry is often an elective treatment to change the appearance of the upper and/or lower front teeth.

Since everyone has a unique vision for their smile, a crucial part of treatment planning is listening carefully to your concerns. Some patients want a dramatic Hollywood-style makeover, while others prefer a few tweaks to bring out their smile’s natural beauty.

Whatever your goals are, Dr. Zadeh will create a treatment plan using one or more of the following services: 

  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • All-porcelain dental crowns
  • Invisalign clear braces
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Teeth whitening

Using cosmetic dentistry, we can alter and refine the shape, size, shade, and position of one or more teeth to create a more harmonious, symmetrical appearance. Tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns are often thought to be restorative, but they are so aesthetic that we often use them to repair broken, cracked, chipped, or gapped teeth. 

If you have mild to moderate tooth misalignment, we may be able to correct it with porcelain veneers or use Invisalign clear braces for more advanced treatment. For teeth that are stained, yellow, or discolored, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening kits.

Cosmetic dentistry plays a big role in general oral health. Whenever we begin to plan any comprehensive treatment, we always start by planning the restoration of the upper six front teeth, if needed. These teeth not only serve as the cornerstone of an ideal functioning bite but also aid in dictating the length and width of the remaining teeth. Additionally, smile enhancement can play a big role in our emotional well being with direct links to improved self-esteem and self-confidence.
