Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What sets cosmetic dentistry apart from other kinds of dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a unique branch of dentistry that places its focus on the way your smile looks rather than how it functions. Often, cosmetic dental work is combined with general or restorative dental work to make sure the results of your dental procedure look natural when you smile. 

Cosmetic dental work can give you a smile that looks just the way it should, or it can give you an overall enhancement with changes to the shape, positioning, and color of your teeth. At Gentle Dental Care, your dentist works with you to select procedures that are the best fit for your needs.

What dental imperfections can I fix with cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry targets numerous imperfections that draw negative attention to your smile. Using cosmetic procedures available at Gentle Dental Care, your dentist can fix:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tooth stains
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Poor alignment
  • Pointy teeth
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Small or short teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Missing teeth

Oftentimes, these features don’t significantly affect the way your teeth function. Some of them, like chips and cracks, might weaken your teeth, but not enough to cause bothersome pain or sensitivity. Cosmetic dental work addresses the way these features look and help you feel more confident with your smile.

What types of cosmetic dental procedures can I get?

Gentle Dental Care offers a vast menu of cosmetic dental services that are performed in the office. The team helps you choose a single procedure or multiple treatments that work toward your goals. Your options include:

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments work to correct stains and discoloration on your teeth. Your teeth act like white sponges, absorbing colorful staining substances more and more over time. Whitening treatments make them bright and stain-free after years of drinking coffee, wine, and dark cola.


Veneers are false fronts for your teeth. They’re made of porcelain and fit to your size specifications to blend in seamlessly with your original teeth. They can cover any kind of damage that is visible when you look at your smile head-on.

Inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays fit over the chewing surfaces of your teeth: Inlays fit inside the cusps, while onlays are placed over the whole surface. They prevent further damage while concealing damage from decay or breakage.
