Cosmetic dentistry has gained significant name recognition in the last decade. But many patients still aren’t aware of just what constitutes cosmetic dentistry, or of the specific changes it can make to your smile. Our Seattle dentist explains what your cosmetic dental procedure could be like with this week’s guide to smile changes.
Cosmetic dental procedures alter your smile in a visually appealing but still functionally sound way. Cosmetic dentists typically find their patients requesting whiter, straighter, more symmetrical, or more substantial teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry and Aesthetic Dentistry
While it’s likely you already have a basic understanding of what “cosmetic dentistry” entails, “aesthetic dentistry” is a newer term to which patients have had minor exposure. Aesthetic dentistry is a concept born of our ever-advancing modern technologies and techniques. It refers to cosmetic changes made to a smile, done in a way so as to appear completely natural and actually be subtle. Your smile will still be transformed, but it will still be uniquely yours. It will retain the personality that makes it an individual’s smile, rather than looking like a cookie-cutter grin. Our Seattle dentist practices aesthetic dentistry to create fresh smiles that still look wholly natural. We use “cosmetic dentistry” as a term in this article and on our website due to the wider understanding associated with it. Know that no matter your dental treatment, it will result in a gorgeous, organic smile.
