What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with your smile’s appearance. Through cosmetic dental procedures like teeth whitening, crowns, and veneers, Dr. Raynald Michel can improve the color, size, shape, position, or alignment of your teeth to make your smile more attractive and appealing.
Dr. Michel will start by evaluating your smile and assessing the areas you want to improve. We’ll then discuss cosmetic dental options that can help you achieve your smile goals and recommend those we feel would best meet your needs.
Cosmetic dentistry makes use of multiple dental procedures to make your smile the best that it can be. Your choice of treatments will depend on the problems you want to fix. By learning more about the following cosmetic procedures, you can decide which is best for you:
Dental bonding – Using a resin tooth-colored material, Dr. Michel can cover minor chips and cracks in your teeth or repair a broken tooth to improve your smile’s appearance
Porcelain veneers – These custom-crafted porcelain shells are bonded to the surface of your teeth to conceal all imperfections and give your smile a flawless appearance
Dental crowns – Crowns are tooth-shaped caps cemented over worn or damaged teeth to restore their youthful, attractive appearance. Crowns can improve the shape or size of misshapen teeth to help them blend in with your smile so that it appears uniform and even
