Cosmetic Dentistry FAQ

Any patient that wants to lighten the shade of the tooth and is in good physical and oral health and is free of cavities and infection is a good candidate for professional chairside teeth whitening procedure.

The cost varies for different treatments. It depends on factors like the material used, the type of treatment done, and its durability. At Accu Dental, we offer excellent cosmetic dental treatments at affordable prices and different payment options.

While cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the overall look of teeth, the permanency depends on the type of treatment done. While braces may correct the teeth within a year or so, dental implants may potentially last forever depending on overall oral hygiene and upkeep.

The treatments are varied depending upon what is desired by the individual. People with excess gum tissue may have “gummy smile”. Gum contouring and reshaping may bring about the beautiful smile in you. People with discolored teeth can do professional chairside teeth whitening to flaunt a bright smile. Teeth deformities like overcrowding or gaps in between can be treated with Invisalign or other invisible braces. Lost teeth can be replaced with dental implants or bridges. Other cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Smile analysis and planning
  • Full mouth restoration
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental Veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings

General dental treatment oversees the good and health of teeth and gums while cosmetic dentistry is more involved with the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile. A general dentist can practice cosmetic dentistry with some training and experience, but general dentistry focuses mainly on maintaining your mouth’s health and infection free, whereas cosmetic dentistry offers comprehensive treatments to improve and preserve the way your smile appears and feels.

Cosmetic dentistry is a combination of art and science which renders you a healthy and flawless smile. Treatments like teeth whitening, contouring, bonding, veneers, teeth alignment and other smile makeovers are all a part of cosmetic dentistry.
