The Advances of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years, removing many of the fears people have of pain and the dentist. Cosmetic dentistry includes procedures such as dental veneers, crowns, implants and teeth reshaping to hide the flaws and give you a beautiful smile.

Key takeaways:

  • Professional teeth whitening from a dentist is a very safe way to brighten and whiten your teeth. 
  • A dentist can bond veneers to the front of teeth to repair cracked, chipped and uneven teeth.
  • Braces and clear aligners can straighten teeth quickly, and are budget-friendly. 

“Cosmetic dentistry gained lots of terrain and popularity in recent years, and it represents an important branch in medicine, helping people improve their smile and also self-esteem.”
