In many cases, yes, cosmetic dentistry that enhances your appearance can also improve your oral health. And conversely, dental services like fillings that improve your oral health also enhance your smile!
There’s really very little distinction these days between which treatments are restorative and which are cosmetic because many of them act as both!
For example, a porcelain dental crown restores strength and function to a damaged tooth, but the material we use blends seamlessly with your smile to restore a more harmonious appearance.
Tooth-colored fillings fix a decayed tooth, but we can custom-match the shade of the material so that it blends seamlessly with your smile. For this reason, we can also composite fillings for cosmetic dental bonding to repair minor cosmetic flaws.
Crooked teeth are challenging to clean properly, but orthodontic treatments with Invisalign clear braces straighten your smile and makes brushing and flossing easy and productive.
