Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the part of dentistry that focuses on the way your teeth and gums look. With many advanced cosmetic dental treatments available, you can make improvements under the guidance and expertise of the team at Monika Bhatia, DDS.

The team evaluates your smile as soon as you come in. They initially look for oral health issues that could impede cosmetic treatment but also ask for your input about the features in your smile that you want to target with cosmetic treatment. They make treatment recommendations based on your oral health.

If just one cosmetic dental treatment will address your concern, the team plans it using technology like digital X-rays and intraoral imaging. If you need multiple treatments to address several concerns, you may have the option to take part in a custom smile makeover with minimal healing time and strategic planning. 

Who can benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

In short, anyone who is unhappy with the way their smile looks or any particular feature of it can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Monika Bhatia, DDS, offers many of the latest treatments in cosmetic dentistry to make repairs or revisions to the way your smile looks. 

You may be interested in exploring the selection of cosmetic treatments at Monika Bhatia, DDS, if you have:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Abnormally shaped teeth
  • Irregular gums

Some of these issues do not impact your oral health or functioning at all. Still, you might want to fix them for appearance purposes only. Monika Bhatia, DDS, goes over your options and helps you decide on the treatment or treatments that will help you reach your goals. 

What are my cosmetic dentistry options?

Cosmetic dental treatments are customizable, and the team at Monika Bhatia, DDS, always aims for natural-looking results. Your cosmetic treatment options include:

Invisalign®

Invisalign is an orthodontics system that offers similar results to braces. If you have crowded or crooked teeth, or if you have gaps between your teeth, Invisalign’s custom clear aligner system shifts your teeth to an optimal position in a matter of months. They’re more discreet than braces because the aligners are transparent. 

Veneers

Veneers are coverings for the fronts of specific teeth, which are made to improve their outward appearance. Your dentist creates veneers to your specifications that look natural and blend in with your other teeth.

KӦR® teeth whitening

KӦR teeth whitening involves custom impression-made trays and professional-grade bleaching gel. You use the trays over the course of a few days to brighten your teeth up to 4-8 shades. 

Bonding

Tooth-colored bonding fills in chips or cracks in your teeth. Sometimes, you can use it to cover stains too.

Other options, which can benefit your oral health or functioning in some way but also fix cosmetic concerns, include crowns, bridges, implants, and white fillings.
