Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations, oral prosthetics, and whitening treatments to improve the appearance of your gums, teeth, and smile. 

Most cosmetic procedures are considered elective, but some offer the added benefit of enhanced oral health. For example, by replacing a permanent tooth with an implant, you can reduce the risk of gum recession and bone decay.

What are the types of cosmetic dentistry?

At Baytown Gentle Dental, the team offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including:

Veneers

Veneers are paper-thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your permanent teeth. They cover minor oral imperfections like stains, gaps, or unusually shaped teeth.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening uses solutions like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide to remove stains from your teeth. The team at Baytown Gentle Dental offers in-office teeth whitening treatment as well as take-home teeth whitening trays.

Full-mouth reconstruction

If you have a misaligned or a malpositioned jaw that affects your ability to bite, chew, or speak, you might benefit from full-mouth reconstruction. Full-mouth reconstruction uses special tools and treatment techniques to enhance the function of your teeth and jaw.

Aesthetic crowns

Aesthetic crowns are synthetic caps that protect a damaged or severely decaying tooth. These crowns are unique in that they blend in with your smile. The team at Baytown Gentle Dental finds a shade that matches your natural enamel. Then, a dental lab creates a custom crown that fits your tooth perfectly.

Smile makeover

If you need extensive dental work, the team might recommend a smile makeover. A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures to enhance the physical appearance of your smile. 

Gummy smile treatment

If you have excess gum tissue that results in a “gummy” smile, you might benefit from gummy smile treatment or cosmetic gum contouring. During the procedure, your provider carefully removes excess gum tissue to make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.

Dental implants

If you’re missing some or all of your teeth, the team might recommend All-on-4 implants or traditional dental implants. Implants are screw-like posts that provide a foundation for dental restorations.

How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

The cost of cosmetic dentistry depends on several factors, including the amount of work required and your goals for treatment. Following an in-office exam and a review of your dental health history, the team can create an estimate that aligns with your needs.
