Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has been around for many years.

Up until 40 years ago patients would actively seek the removal of all of their teeth and request dentures because the dentures looked better than their natural teeth. Obviously no longer appropriate and never was. However; unfortunately some patients have no choice but to have their tooth or teeth removed and cosmetically restored with a denture. Dentures still have an important place in dentistry. If you are not medically compromised there are other options they may service functionally and aesthetically better than dentures.

Implants with porcelain crowns are now considered the best option for the replacement of missing teeth both cosmetically and functionally. Again; however there is always the odd case where implants are not appropriate.

White fillings in the front teeth often stain and wear with time and need replacement. Their replacement is easy and common place.

Veneers, crowns and bridges are also provided for the purpose of improving the cosmetic outcome of the teeth.
