Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth, your gums, or the position of your teeth. Mauriello Dental offers several cosmetic solutions that tackle dental aesthetics by addressing the following in your teeth:
It’s important to note that cosmetic dentistry doesn't imperil overall dental health. Rather, it improves your smile while maintaining optimal function.
For that reason, it’s essential to turn to dental experts who have a solid understanding of general dentistry, as well as cosmetic dentistry, like Dr. Joseph Mauriello and Dr. Vivian Mauriello.
There’s also a fair amount of crossover between general dental procedures and cosmetic dentistry. For example, crowns that cap a badly damaged tooth offer both an aesthetic and functional solution. Also, if you don’t like the look of traditional fillings, which serve a critical role in halting decay in your teeth, the answer lies in cosmetic dentistry with tooth-colored fillings.
What conditions does cosmetic dentistry fix?
At Mauriello Dental, Drs. Vivian and Joseph Mauriello tackle a host of aesthetic issues, including:
- Dull, yellowing teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misalignments that cause an under- or overbite
- Misshapen teeth
- Poorly positioned teeth
Whatever your issue, it’s more than likely that the dentists at Mauriello Dental have a perfect solution.
What are the options in cosmetic dentistry?
Mauriello Dental offers a full array of cosmetic procedures designed to meet your cosmetic goals, including:
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental implants
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Invisalign® aligners
None of these procedures is particularly invasive, but several are irreversible, so it’s essential that you understand precisely how cosmetic dentistry alters your teeth.
As well, it’s easy to overlook a basic tool in your cosmetic arsenal: good cleaning. Outside of daily, at-home care, a professional cleaning performed twice a year by Mauriello Dental’s hygienist goes a long way toward improving the look of your natural teeth and maintaining the results of any cosmetic dentistry procedure.
