WHAT IS COSMETIC DENTISTRY? Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with improving the aesthetics or appearance as well as the function of teeth. Using various tools and techniques, Dr. Velasco at Uptown can improve teeth color, shape, alignment and many other factors that affect the overall appearance of a smile. Common procedures include cleanings, teeth whitening, bonding, crowns, veneers, contouring, and dental implants.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COSMETIC DENTIST AND A REGULAR DENTIST? Cosmetic dentists are significantly different than general dentists. General dentists tend to focus a lot more on the function of your teeth rather than the appearance. On the other hand, cosmetic dentists are artists when it comes to teeth and are very much concerned with the appearance of your teeth. When you get a dental prosthetic (teeth replacement), it should closely resemble natural teeth. Due to various factors, getting a tooth replacement to match a natural tooth is an involved process that requires a large amount of skill.
Teeth are not a single color; they vary in color across the structure. They also both reflect and allow light to pass through. These unique properties must be replicated when fabricating dental prosthetics. Our cosmetic dentists and lab technicians use a variety of techniques and materials to ensure that your dental prosthetics will appear indistinguishable from natural teeth.
