Cosmetic dentistry treatment is gaining fast popularity over all others forms of dental treatment as it deals with everything ranging teeth whitening to teeth shaping, closing gaps in between missing teeth to replacing decayed or damaged tooth and improving the overall aesthetics of your smile. This form of dentistry includes but is not limited restorative dentistry. While both these forms of dentistry – cosmetic and restorative – uses dental prosthetics like crowns and implants or dentures, it's the focus that differs. Restorative dentistry is just concerned about restoring the normal functioning of your teeth. But a cosmetic dentist practising cosmetic dentistry does not only restore the normal functioning of your teeth, but they also work towards attaining the best results in terms of aesthetics. It involves a high level of delicacy and a cosmetic surgeon has an eye for each minute detail. Some of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry include composite bonding treatment, dental veneers, inlays, onlays, teeth whitening, dental fillings and dental bridges. In addition to these, teeth cosmetic surgery like dental implants and gum surgery also forms a part of cosmetic dentistry. While dental implants are cylindrical shaped titanium posts that are used to replace the root section of a damaged tooth, a gum surgery is used to reshape your gum tissues such that it attains a levelled and polished appearance. No matter what form of cosmetic dentistry treatment you wish to go for, it is always advisable to consult a cosmetic dentist in this regard, discuss your problem and then go ahead with your form of treatment.
