Cosmetic dentistry is the overall process of repairing teeth for cosmetic reasons. This can include implants, veneers, whitening, orthodontics, and composite reconstruction. Any type of dental work that is undertaken primarily for cosmetic reasons falls into this category. These procedures can dramatically improve an individual’s self-esteem. Many cosmetic dentists call the process of evaluating an individual’s entire mouth and then doing all necessary repairs a smile makeover. This process is a great way to help you feel better about your mouth, your smile, and your overall appearance, and may consist of the following elements:
If your teeth are stained from years of coffee, smoking, or tea, cosmetic teeth whitening is a definite possibility. South OC Smiles is happy to evaluate your teeth and then help you set up a treatment plan to whiten your teeth and return them to a brilliant shine. If you’ve been considering over the counter whitening strips, reach out to us instead to learn about professional whitening. You may be pleasantly surprised at the differences between the two and pleased at the results after just a few treatments.
Individuals with teeth that are crooked or crowded may find themselves in need of professional orthodontics. A skilled cosmetic dentist or orthodontist can evaluate the situation, then help develop a treatment plan for straightening the teeth and removing gaps, over time. You’ll end up with straight, evenly spaced teeth that you can be proud of. Reach out to us to schedule an orthodontic consult, and we’ll discuss precisely what we’re able to do for you.

Veneers are a great way to get the smile you’ve always wanted, so reach out to us to learn more about them if you think they may be a good option for your situation.
