Cosmetic Dentistry is not a recognized specialty in dentistry by the American Dental Association. So, what is cosmetic dentistry?
The term cosmetic is an adjective used in several industries that refers to the appearance, beauty, aesthetics. In many of these cases, the term cosmetic is not referring to the structure, form or function of the specific item. Generally, cosmetic dentistry procedures are designed to improve the appearance of your natural teeth.
A cosmetic dentist is one who specializes in these elective procedures. Cosmetic dentists complete many hours of continuing education in the advanced techniques. Most importantly, the best cosmetic dentists continue to study and collaborate with other specialists. At Cascade Dental, you have access to dentists with a wealth of knowledge and continuous education in elective procedures.
Some of the more common cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental Veneers
- Composite Bonding
- Smile Makeover
Part of your cosmetic procedures treatment plan is a full oral exam. Your dentist may find other necessary treatments are required to address functional dental problems. Common oral functional problems may include your bite, jaw, muscles or bone structure.
