Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to be a time consuming and expensive process, nor is it reserved for the TV anchorpeople of the world. Some procedures simply involve subtle changes, often requiring no more than a single office visit. And a lot of us have had cosmetic dentistry before – sometimes without even knowing it.
From bleaching to bonding, to tooth reshaping and contouring, most of us have at one time or another undergone some type of cosmetic dentistry procedure. This is because after the dentist is finished drilling or scaling (or lasing) whatever oral malady befell us in the first place, there often needs to be some window dressing work to be done. Dental crowns, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bleaching, and tooth bonding are all procedures performed every day in your neighborhood dental office.
