Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of oral health care focused on improving the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. In most cases, cosmetic dentistry isn’t medically necessary. However, it can improve your confidence, helping you smile, speak, and laugh more confidently. 

If you regularly worry about the color or condition of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry is worth considering. To begin, make an appointment with the caring team at East Village Dental today.  

What types of cosmetic dentistry are available?

At East Village Dental, the team offers an array of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:

Teeth whitening

If your teeth are yellow or stained because of poor oral hygiene or years of tobacco use, teeth whitening can restore your pearly whites to their near-original condition. The team offers two types of teeth whitening treatments: Philips Zoom! and take-home trays.


A crown is a cap or covering that sits on top of a damaged or badly decaying tooth. In addition to boosting the strength and durability of your affected tooth, a crown can restore your smile, preventing the need for more invasive treatment such as an extraction. 

Dental implants

If you’re missing one or multiple permanent teeth, you might benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that your dentist places in the sockets of your missing teeth. Unlike traditional restoration, dental implants don’t rely on your surrounding teeth for support. 


If your teeth don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments, or if you have crooked or unusually-shaped teeth, you may want to consider veneers. Veneers are custom shells of porcelain or composite resin that your dentist attaches to the front of your permanent teeth. Veneers aren’t permanent, but they can last for between 10-15 years at a time.


Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment system that uses clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually move and straighten your teeth. The process is quick and effective and doesn’t require the use of wires, brackets, or rubber bands. 

What type of cosmetic dentistry will I benefit from?

The team at East Village Dental can help you determine the type of cosmetic dentistry that will best help you achieve your aesthetic goals. 

Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, your dentist formulates a treatment plan that’s both affordable and effective.
