Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the art of improving the way teeth look individually and as a group. This approach is not just limited to teeth, though. Jeff DiMariano, DDS, and his team focus on the gums and bite, as well, to ensure their patients get the look they want.

What services are included in cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a broad term, so it covers many procedures including:

  • Tooth whitening
  • Tooth restorations
  • Veneers

Dr. DiMariano examines each patient and develops a custom plan designed to meet the dental goals for their teeth. That typically requires a combination of procedures. For example, a patient might need a tooth restoration and then full mouth whitening.

What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is a basic cosmetic service and one of the most economical ways to improve a person's smile. The right procedure returns the teeth to their natural shade and brightens them at the same time. Most techniques involve the use of a bleaching solution.

There are over-the-counter products that improve the appearance of teeth, but Dr. DiMariano offers the safest options to avoid gum irritation and irritation to patients with sensitive teeth.

Dr. DiMariano examines his patient's teeth and makes an individualized recommendation for the most effective whitening treatment.

What restorations are included in cosmetic dentistry?

By definition, cosmetic dentistry consists of procedures that improve the look of the teeth and gums, so most restorations fit into this category. Specifically, Dr. DiMariano provides:

  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants

Anyone of these dental options is available to patients that want a better-looking smile.

What are veneers?

Dental veneers involve the installation of wafer-thin shells over the tooth. The shells are custom-made to fit the specific tooth and bonded in place. The goal is to change the size, shape, or color of that tooth so that it fits in better with the overall dental architecture.
