Cosmetic dentistry refers to procedures that do not correct a dental ailment issues, but aim solely to improve appearances. This differs from the concept of “aesthetic” dentistry which corrects an actual diagnosed dental issues but uses materials that create attractive results. Common procedures that fall into the category of “cosmetic” treatment include tooth whitening and porcelain veneers. Both aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry can address various common concerns while creating and maintaining a healthy smile. These include:
- Replacing missing teeth
- Whitening and correcting colour
- Altering tooth size, shape and alignment
- Correcting gaps between teeth
- Replacing old and unattractive restorations with appealing new alternatives
