What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance and aesthetics of your teeth. It can help you achieve a beautiful and confident smile by correcting various dental issues, such as:

  • Discoloured or stained teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Misaligned, crooked, or crowded teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Excessive or receding gums

Cosmetic dentistry can also enhance your oral health and function by preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. It can also improve your bite, speech, and chewing ability.

What are the Types of Cosmetic Dentistry?

There are many types of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can address different dental problems and goals. Some of the common ones are:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile by removing stains and discolouration from your teeth. You can choose from various methods of teeth whitening, such as:

  • In-office whitening: This is done by a dentist using professional-grade bleaching agents and light or laser technology. It can whiten your teeth by several shades in one hour.
  • At-home whitening: This is done by yourself using over-the-counter products, such as whitening strips, trays, gels, or toothpastes. It can whiten your teeth gradually over several weeks.
  • Customised whitening: This is done by a dentist using custom-made trays that fit your teeth and prescription-strength bleaching agents. It can whiten your teeth faster and more effectively than at-home products.


Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their shape, size, colour, or alignment. They can cover various imperfections, such as:

  • Chips, cracks, or fractures
  • Stains or discolouration
  • Gaps or spaces
  • Crookedness or misalignment
  • Worn-down or uneven edges

Veneers are custom-made to match the colour and contour of your natural teeth. They are durable, stain-resistant, and natural-looking.

Braces and Clear Aligners

Braces and clear aligners are orthodontic devices that apply gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the desired positions. They can correct various malocclusions, such as:

  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Crowding or spacing

Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to your teeth and connected by wires and rubber bands. They are visible and require regular adjustments by a dentist.

Clear aligners consist of transparent plastic trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth. They are removable and invisible and require periodic changes by yourself.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace missing teeth. They provide a stable and permanent foundation for dental prosthetics, such as:

  • Crowns: These are caps that cover the entire visible part of a tooth. They restore the shape, size, colour, and function of a missing tooth.
  • Bridges: These are false teeth that are supported by adjacent natural teeth or implants. They fill the gap left by one or more missing teeth.
  • Dentures: These are removable appliances that replace all or most of your teeth. They restore your smile and chewing ability.

Dental implants are made of titanium or zirconia, which are biocompatible materials that fuse with your bone. They look and feel like natural teeth.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring is a surgical procedure that reshapes your gums to improve their proportion and symmetry. It can address various gum issues, such as:

  • Gummy smile: This occurs when you have excess gum tissue that covers too much of your teeth.
  • Receding gums: This occurs when you have insufficient gum tissue that exposes too much of your roots.
  • Uneven gums: This occurs when you have irregular gum line that makes your teeth appear uneven.

Gum contouring involves removing or adding gum tissue using a scalpel, laser, or radiofrequency device. It can enhance the appearance and health of your gums.
