Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that address flaws in your smile and improve your overall appearance. Beyond providing aesthetic benefits, cosmetic dentistry also treats oral health issues, which can lead to problems when untreated, such as gum disease or tooth decay.

Dr. Al-Salim specializes in a host of cosmetic dentistry services to help ensure you enjoy a lifetime of healthy, functioning teeth and gums.

Which cosmetic dentistry services are available?

At Gorgeous Smile, Dr. Al-Salim offers a full menu of cosmetic dentistry services that produce incredible results, including:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. Since the post naturally fuses to your jawbone, the artificial tooth part of the implant has excellent support. The teeth attached to implants look natural and enhance or restore your smile.

Crowns

Crowns are caps that cover the entire tooth surface, restoring its original shape and size. Made from porcelain to match the shade of your natural teeth, crowns protect and strengthen tooth structure that can’t be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain custom-made to fit onto your natural teeth. They create a beautiful smile by covering flaws, such as chips, cracks, or discoloration.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening changes the color of natural tooth enamel and uses a bleaching agent to remove stains caused by natural wear or certain foods, such as mustard, coffee, or red wine. Teeth whitening can brighten your smile by several shades. *Individual results may vary.

How can I benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

If imperfections are preventing you from achieving the smile you want, you can realize dramatic benefits from cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Al-Salim can correct cosmetic flaws when you have teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Discolored
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Fractured
  • Missing

Cosmetic dentistry enhances your smile by addressing problems of your teeth and gums that can negatively affect your oral health. For example, if you’re missing teeth, surrounding teeth tend to shift into the gaps. This movement substantially increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
