Cosmetic dentistry involves any procedure that is meant to enhance and perfect a patient's smile.
What exactly is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry involves any procedure that is meant to enhance and perfect a patient’s smile. Each cosmetic procedure is different and not every option is suitable for every patient. For this reason, it’s important to come into the office for a thorough consultation with Dr. Buccellato. Cosmetic procedures may be used in conjunction with restorative treatment.
Why might you need Cosmetic Dentistry?
You might want or even need cosmetic dental procedures because you are unhappy with the way that your smile looks. Certain cosmetic procedures work side-by-side restorative treatment, so they can even help improve functionality of your teeth. Some of the most common procedures include:
• Fixed Bridges
• Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
• Dental Implants
What makes you a candidate for Cosmetic Dental procedures?
The benefits of a cosmetic procedure need to outweigh the risks when it comes to perfecting your smile. Certain procedures aren’t suitable for every person coming into the office. For example, teeth whitening only works on natural teeth, so if you have veneers, you will not benefit from this procedure. Only with the help of an exam and consultation can Dr. Buccellato decipher which procedures are right for you.
What can you expect with Cosmetic Dental procedures?
Each cosmetic dental procedure is different and will require varying preparation and work. For this reason, you’ll first need to come into the office for a comprehensive consultation and exam. This will help in determining the right procedures to meet your smile goals. Once the consult has been complete, Dr. Buccellato will have you come back in to begin the work necessary. While cosmetic procedures are more geared for adults, teens can benefit from certain treatment as well. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to provide you with a smile that boosts your confidence and leaves you feeling good about the way that you look. Dr. Buccellato is dedicated to providing this treatment in a calm, comfortable manner.
