“Cosmetic dentistry” is one of the most universal terms used in dentistry. Everything we do as dentists involves cosmetics in one way or another.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses, but is not limited to:
4) Smile makeovers
6) Straightening teeth with clear aligners, Invisalign
8) And so much more.
While many dentists advertise that they are “Cosmetic Dentists”, this is not an actual specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. At Watts Dental, we take pride and enjoyment in providing “cosmetically driven” care and procedures that will help enhance the esthetics and overall satisfaction of our patients smiles.
(Recognized specialties by the ADA are, but no limited to: Oral Surgery, Endodontics, Prosthodontics, Periodontics, and Pedodontics)
Most frequently, cosmetic dentistry starts with the simple complaint or concern of a specific aspect of one’s smile or their smile in its entirety. Some simple solutions (aligning teeth, simple bonding) exists that can alter the overall appearance of a smile, but more frequently more extensive and comprehensive work may be required (veneers and crowns).
A thorough discussion should be had with your dentist to discuss your primary concern, and focus on the best and most predictable treatment options to achieve your desired and most cosmetic outcome. At Watts Dental, Dr. Watts truly enjoys delivering results patient’s love and smiles that last forever. We welcome you to inquire about how we can help you achieve a smile that you are proud to show off!
